Blanchon Hard Waxoil is a solvent-based, clear hard wax oil for wooden flooring, worktops, furniture, panelling and any other interior solid wood, plywood and cork. It penetrates into the surface to provide long-lasting protection, whilst preserving the wood's natural beauty and elasticity.
Please note: The 'Natural' version of this product produces a 'satin-matt' finish meaning that it has minimal sheen when light reflects off the surface.
Ensure that surfaces to be treated are clean, dry and free from any dust, dirt or other surface contaminants. In general, there should be less than 10% moisture content.
To stain wooden floors and other interior wooden surfaces prior to oiling, consider Blanchon Wood-Ageing Agent, Blanchon Waterborne Dye or an alternative water-based / solvent-based wood stain or dye.
Always do a test area before starting any project to assess product suitability and final finish. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the container at all times. Hard Waxoil is ready to use and does not require diluting or mixing. Shake well before use.
Do not apply to the wood floor if the temperature is lower than 12°C or if the relative humidity is higher than 85%. Never use on wood where the moisture content is higher than 10%. Use only in well ventilated areas. Keep any aquariums and plants away from the environment where the product is being applied.
The finished area can be subjected to light use 8 - 12 hours after the final coat and fully utilised 2 - 4 days after applying the final coat. It takes 8 to 10 days to fully cure. However, the following precautions should be taken in the first few days of use:
Please Note: On previously stained wood, the traffic on the floor will determine how the shade evolves over time. Wood floor maintenance should be carried out regularly and thoroughly to ensure long lasting protection and decoration.
Remove dust regularly using a dry microfibre mop or vacuum cleaner. Stains and marks can be easily removed with a dedicated floor cleaner and a damp floor mop or cloth. Never soak wooden floors with water.
This should be carried out from once a week on light traffic floors or more frequently for heavy traffic areas.
Maintenance should be carried out when the Hard Wax Oil finish begins to look tired or worn. On high traffic wood floors, regular maintenance may be boosted by applying a thin coat of Blanchon Maintenance Oil or Blanchon Universal Maintenance Oil and buffed if required, either by hand or with a floor buffing machine.
Allow 15 days before the first maintenance treatment to allow Blanchon Hard Waxoil to fully cure. The polished area should be fully use-able in 4 - 8 hours.
For small areas with specific damage (cigarette burns, impact damage etc.) lightly sand with 120 grit sandpaper to remove the damage and then re-apply Blanchon Hard Wax Oil.
For larger areas or wood floors that have not been maintained as frequently as their use requires, a general sanding can be done using a buffing machine fitted with a sanding disc (about 120 grit) before applying a coat of undiluted Hard Waxoil. Polish by hand or with a buffing machine.
