|Surface Preparation||Ensure the surface is clean and dry before application. D-limonene (natural citrus solvent) or a turpentine can be used for a vigorous clean. For a lighter clean, you can use an all purpose cleaner.
If there is any oil, wax, grease, dirt or similar residue on the surface, it may affect the tung oil’s ability to cure – so a thorough clean is important.
|How to Apply||
|Dry Time||24 hours to dry between coats. As this is tung oil based, it can take 4 weeks to completely cure. Light usage is however perfectly fine within this time.|
|Maintenance||This product is built from natural oils, in particular tung oil. This makes for a beautiful natural finish. If you do find the finish gets scratched or damaged, you can simply reapply following the
same steps outlined above. There is no need to sand it back as you would have to do with lacquers, varnishes and silicon based products.For general maintenance and wear, you can assess as you see fit. We would recommend reapplying a light 1-2 coats every 6-12 months to keep your timber looking fresh!
|Clean Up||D-Limonene or mineral turpentine.|
