DESCRIPTION: A breathing, satin, water-repellent, oil based finish for use on interior timber, cork, unglazed floor tiles and porous stone surfaces. Bio Teak Oil can be used as a complete finish. Do not use on alkaline surfaces, plaster, concrete, fibro cement or in a constantly humid environment. Test strips should be made on other materials such as brick and ceramic tiles.
PREPARATION: Surfaces should be well-sanded, dry and cleaned of greasy, waxy and dirty contaminants using Bio Thinner. Hardwoods and timbers rich in natural oils, waxes, acids and terpenes should be treated with Bio Thinner to prevent these substances from retarding the drying process. Final sanding before application should be done with sandpaper grade 120 or 180. Old coats must be removed.
APPLICATION: Brush, dip or spray. Do not apply more than the surface can absorb. Remove excess oil with a cloth or brush after 10-20 minutes. Apply one to two thin coat, or up to four thin coats on highly absorbent surfaces. Allow first coat to dry for 24 - 48 hours. Sand lightly with finegrain sandpaper, then repeat process with each coat. When using on floor boards, start to polish the oil immediately after you have removed the excess oil. Do not use when the temperature is below 10+ C and/or the relative humidity is above 80%; eg. cold damp conditions, or when condensation, rain or frost are likely to occur. Provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.
DRYING: Touch dry after 5-7 hours. Do not walk on treated floors for 3 days. May be used fully after 7-10 days.
FINISHING TREATMENT: For greater protection, a thin coat of BIO ANTIQUE WAX or BIO HARD FLOOR WAX may be applied after drying. For regular maintenance of floor boards use Bio Timber Care Polish
INGREDIENTS: Based on plant oils, resins, essential oils, paraffin oil, lead free drying agent.
COVERAGE: 1 Litre covers approx.. 8 - 12 sqm., depending on the absorbency of the substrate.
On floors only: Softwood 20-30 sqm
Hardwood 25-40 sqm.
PACAKAGING: 1 and 4 Litres
