WOCA Color Oil provides oil finishing and color in one application. Suitable for use on oak, ash, spruce, larch, pine and teak, as well as cork. Color Oil may be used on both unfinished or freshly sanded interior woodwork.
How To Apply WOCA Color Oil
It is recommended to use a floor buffer for the oil application. Recommended wood moisture maximum – 12%. The oiling should be done at a minimum temperature of 60º F.
- The floor or woodwork should be freshly sanded and completely clean, dry, and free from stains before the application of the Color Oil. Clean the floor with a solution of 1/4 cup Wood Cleaner per gallon water.
- Shake the container of Color Oil well before and during application. Apply the oil in an even coat with a low nap paint roller onto an area of 100 – 200 sq. ft. Let the floor absorb the oil for 20 minutes. Word the oil into the wood with a red pad either manually or for large areas with a buffer. Polish until the floor appears saturated with oil.
- Excess oil is removed with lint free cloths or scraped with a squeegee onto next section of floor to be oiled. Then buff the floor with lint free cloths under white polishing pads. The floor should not appear wet and no excess oil should be left on the surface after polishing. Continue in sections until the whole floor has been finished.
- After 6 – 8 hours, or when dry enough to walk on, the floor should be buffed with a white polishing pad and color oil. If a silk matte surface is required, the finished floor may be buffed with 1 liter of Color Oil to 500 – 600 s.f. of floor. The oil must be polished carefully into the floor. No excess oil should be left on the surface. After 6 – 8 hours, cover walking areas with corrugated cardboard for the 72 hours hardening period. Do not expose the floor to water during the hardening time.
