Master Color Oil Tester Instructions

The wood must be freshly-sanded to grit 120 for the final sanding. Product, room and floor temperature must be between 59°-86° F. Ensure good ventilation when applying the oil and when it is drying.

  1. Dampen a clean cloth with water and wipe the sample evenly to open the wood grain and allow it to thoroughly dry.
  2. Pour a small amount of WOCA Master Color Oil onto the sample. Spread the oil with a cloth or a piece of red 3M pad. The surface should be visibly wet.
  3. Leave the oil to soak on the sample for 15 minutes. If the oil soaks quickly into the wood, apply more oil.
  4. Wet buff with the red 3m pad to force oil into the wood, buff/polish it well.
  5. Wipe off the surface oil with a cotton cloth. When finished, there should be no oil on top of the sample, and you should have a silky look. Leave the sample to dry for 5 – 6 hours.
  6. Repeat the oil application as in #2 & #3 above. You will use less oil than during the first application.
Note: The use of red and white 3M pads will simulate a buffer application, which forces more oil into the wood and smooths the wood grain.
