DESCRIPTION: A penetrating oil for priming all absorbent interior surfaces, especially new wood, cork and unglazed stone tiles. Very suitable as a preliminary treatment under waxed, varnished or oiled finishes. For oiled finish see Bio Natural Wood Oil or Bio Teak Oil.



PREPARATION: All surfaces to be primed should be well sanded, dry and cleaned of greasy, waxy and dirty contaminants using BIO Thinner. Hardwoods and other timbers rich in natural oils, waxes, acids and terpenes should be degreased using Bio Thinner because these substances may mix with the Priming Oil and prolong its drying time. Old coatings must be removed.


APPLICATION: Can be brushed, rolled or sprayed. Do not apply more oil than the surface can absorb. Remove excess oil with a dry lint free cloth after approx. 15-3o minutes. Test the absorbency of the surface before application: for very absorbent timber, work in small areas otherwise the oil might dry before you are able to wipe off the excess, causing an uneven patchy finish. Do not use below 10 C and/or above 80% humidity, or when condensation, rain, dew or frost is likely to occur. Provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.


DRYING: Can be sanded after 24 hours, after which time treatment can continue. However, the oil takes up to 72 hours to dry completely.


COVERAGE: 1 Litre covers approx. 10-12 sqm. Note: Coverage varies greatly with the absorbency of the material being primed. Cross-cut and other open-grained surfaces require considerably more oil.


CLEANING: Use BIO Thinner.


PACKAGING: 1, 4 and 20 Litres.


INGREDIENTS: Plant oils, essential oils and paraffin oil.


STORAGE: Keep tightly sealed in a cool and dry place. Surface skin may develop in opened cans.


PRECAUTION: Keep away from open flames and out of the reach of children. Please dispose of used rags in a sealed metal container. Can spontaneously combust.
