If the surface to be treated is rough or if a previous surface coating finish (e.g. varnish, lacquer, etc.) is present, sand to smooth bare wood with 80-120 grit sandpaper. Some previously oiled surfaces can be overcoated, without sanding. To check compatibility, a trial application is essential when overcoating a previously oiled surface. Remove dust, dirt and any other contaminates which may lead to uneven absorption of Clear Hardwax Oil. Make sure the surface to be treated is thoroughly dry. Stir tins and ensure product is at room temperature before use. Enough product should be purchased to complete the whole project and when more than one container is required it is advisable to mix them together before use. We strongly recommend a small trial application prior to starting a project.
If you are treating oily/dense timbers e.g. Iroko, Ipe, Teak, Jarrah, Merbau etc. thin the first coat of Treatex Hardwax Oil Clear by mixing with approximately 10% Treatex Thinner. This enables the product to properly penetrate into these types of timbers. Use a brush or roller to evenly apply Treatex Hardwax Oil allowing roughly 30g per m². On worktops and doors etc. pay particular attention to end grain (on end grain apply wet on wet until product is no longer absorbed by the wood). Allow to dry – maintaining warmth and ventilation will enable the surface to dry within 3-6 hours. Apply with a brush or roller a second coat of Treatex Hardwax Oil, again allowing roughly 30g per m². Allow to dry thoroughly overnight before the surface is lightly used. The surface will reach maximum hardness after a further 24 hours.
It is possible to machine apply Treatex Hardwax Oil and Treatex Colour Tones. Every machine is different, so please contact us and we can work together to find the perfect settings for your machine.
Treatex , like other natural oil based products contains Linseed oil. If you use a mechanical sander to remove any freshly applied linseed oil based product, you should empty the sawdust out of the machine on a regular basis as there is a small but possible risk of self combustion.
If Treatex Hardwax Oil is applied too thickly, drying time will be increased. To speed up drying time raise the room temperature and increase air flow by opening doors and windows, or using a fan.
Treatex brushes and rollers are available. Alternatively, use a short gloss pile roller or good quality brush. Tightly wrap a plastic bag around wet rollers and brushes to stop them drying out between coats. Wet brushes and rollers can be cleaned using white spirit. If you are using hardener then wet rollers and brushes will dry even if they are wrapped in a plastic bag and it will not be possible to clean them.
*Natural can be used as a top coat with Spruce Colour Tone to achieve a pure bright white (see: Hardwax Oil Natural).
