They give a matt or satin finish and can be used on any interior wooden surface which is not subjected to heavy wear.
Bio Red Oil contains a natural red plant dye which reddens the timber surface and is deepening the natural tone and colour.
Bio Natural Wood Oil and Bio Red Oil can be used as complete finishes, or in conjunction with other Bio products (see below).
These oils should not be used on alkaline surfaces, plaster, concrete or fibro-cement. If considering use on other materials (such as brick, ceramic or cork), test-strips should be made to assess suitability.
Surfaces should be well-sanded, dry and cleaned of greasy, waxy and dirty contaminants using BIO Thinner. Do not apply coatings to unseasoned or wet timber.
Imperfect coats may require complete stripping before applying BIO Products. round off sharp edges. It is also good practice to prime back surfaces.
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 oils and prolong its drying time.
Brush, dip or spray BIO Oils working them well into the grain. Do not apply more oil than the surface can absorb. Maintain a wet edge when painting. Remove excess oil with a dry, lint free cloth after approx. 15-30 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. Drying time 24 hours.
Do not use when temperature is below +10C and/or the relative humidity is above 80%; e.g. cold damp conditions; when condensation, rain, dew or frost are likely to occur; on hot days; in direct sunlight or on hot surfaces.
Bio OILS may penetrate timber pores more easily if warmed to 60 +C. For matt finish apply one coat, for satin finish apply three coats. Repair and refinish by applying additional coats. Provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.
