The surface must be dry (humidity of the wood max 14%), clean and free of dust and grease. Apply at temperatures  above 16°C. Lower temperatures will delay the drying process. The surface must be sanded at least with 120 grain.

Hardwax Oil is ready for use. Apply thinly and evenly by brush or sponge applicator and spread well. After 20 minutes remove the excess of oil carefully and polish the surface with a green polishing pad. After a drying time of 16 - 24 h apply a second coat using a white polishing pad. If the surface feels rough after the first coating sanding with 150 - 180 grain is recommended. Sanding dust must be thoroughly removed before adding the second coat. In case of highly absorbent surfaces like cork a second coating of Hardwax Oil may be necessary.
Always apply a test coat. Ensure good light and ventilation conditions during use and drying times. Otherwise a lingering odour of plant oils possible.

Drying time: 

At 20°C and  50 - 55% relative humidity: First coat drying time is 6 - 12 h. After 16 - 24 h the second coat can be applied. Use the surface with caution after 3 days. Full hardening time is 7 - 14 days.

Container sizes and coverage: 

1 litre covers approx. 25 m2 (30 - 50 g/m2), depending upon the condition and absorbency of the surface. Always do a test coat.
