    Field of application

    • For use indoors
    • for stairs
    • for wood floors
    • for furniture
    • Interior wood
    • Wooden floors and stairs
    • High-quality solid wood furniture
    • Panels and moulding
    • Cork floors


    • Solvent-based
    • Repels dust and dirt for easy-care surfaces
    • Penetrates deeply into the wood and emphasises the grain
    • Long-lasting, dirt-repelling and hard-wearing
    • Resistant to chemicals: DIN 68861, 1C
    • Forms a thin protective layer of high quality waxes on the surface
    • Preparation
      • Substrate requirements

        The substrate must be clean, dry, free of dust, grease and loose substances, and prepared in the correct manner.

        Wood moisture content: 8-12%

        On areas subject to foot traffic, the sandpaper grit used for final sanding should be no finer than P100-120.

        For furniture surfaces and similar objects, the sandpaper grit used for final sanding should be no finer than P180.

      • Preparations

        Thoroughly remove any dirt, grease and non-adhering old coatings.

        Wash off greasy and resin-rich wood with thinner and brush cleaner.

        If you wish to add colour, prime with Decorative Wax Stain or OB-008.

    • Application
      • Temperature of the material, air and substrate: from min. +15 °C to max. +30 °C
      • Stir before use
      • By brush / By roller
      • Stir well.

        Apply thinly using a surface brush or roller.

        Remove any excess material after approx. 20-30 minutes.

        Use cotton rags/cloths on items of furniture.

        On larger surfaces, a single disc machine with a white polishing pad can be used.

        After leaving to dry overnight, apply a second coat without sanding in between coats.

        Seal opened containers well and use contents as soon as possible.

    • Application instructions
      • Drying time: can be worked over after 12 - 16 h
      • Check colour, adhesion and compatibility with the substrate by setting up a trial area.

        Before coating technically modified woods and wood-based materials, apply the product to a trial surface and conduct a suitability test on the desired area of use.

        Ensure thorough ventilation during processing and drying.

        When sanding wooden surfaces that have been treated with the product, always wear respiratory protection (dust filter mask P2).

        Risk of spontaneous ignition (DGUV Information 209-046).
        Do not use in the same workplace as NC-based varnishes or stains. Collect contaminated textiles (e.g. cleaning cloths, work clothing, dust bags) in fireproof waste containers and dispose of in a fireproof manner (under water).

      • Drying

        Practice values at +20 °C and 65% relative humidity.

        Drying is dependent on the type of wood and the absorbency of the substrate.

        Drying time is delayed by excess material on non-absorbent areas, as well as by low temperatures and/or high humidity.

      • Thinning

        Ready to use

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • By brush / By roller
      • Brush with natural bristles, flat brush, velour roller, wadded rags/lint-free cotton cloth, rotary disc machine with white polishing pad

        Clean tools immediately after use with thinner and brush cleaner.

        Ensure that any residue from cleaning is disposed of correctly.

    • Storage / shelf life
      • Store frost-free and cool / protect for moisture / close containers
      • Shelf-life 24 months
      • If stored unopened in its original container in a cool, dry place and protected against frost, the product will keep for at least 24 months.

    • Usage
      • Approx. 10 ml - 50 ml / m² per layer applied
      • 10 - 50 ml/m² per coat
        The application rate depends greatly on the absorbency of the wood and the final sanded finish.

    • General information
      • DIN EN 71-3 "Migration of certain elements":

        This product complies with the limits for the migration of heavy metals to children's toys according to DIN EN 71-3 and thus fulfils one of several further requirements for the safety of children's toys according to the EU "Toy Directive" (2009/48/EC).

        Oil-based products contain natural ingredients. Under the influence of UV light, light exclusion (dark yellowing), heat or individual wood changes, these can lead to a change in the surface. This requires special surface care, please refer to the leaflet on general application instructions for oils and waxes. If these changes are not desired, a stained and lightfast lacquered surface design is recommended.

        Dust and loose dirt on floors and stairs should be removed regularly using a soft broom or mop.

        For complete care and maintenance, we recommend the use of care products for oiled wooden surfaces. Follow the instructions provided by the care product manufacturer.

        In the event of maintenance, treat the cleaned surface in such a way that it blends in to produce a uniform finish.

        Remove water marks or stains on furniture with steel wool (grade 000) and apply a thin layer of the product.

        Observe the "Care instructions for oiled surfaces and floors".
