Blanchon Prim'Oil is a multi-purpose primer based on synthetic resins. The product has been specially designed to be applied on difficult timber such as tropical hardwoods. Most exotic woods (particularly Iroko, Merbau, Ipe and Teak) can contain large amounts of resins which often cause such problems as delaying the drying time of an oil, pronouncing surface defects and giving an uneven appearance on the surface of the wood. An application of Prim'Oil will prevent these side-effects from affecting the top coat.
Blanchon Prim'Oil should only be used internally on parquets, wood floors, cross-grained wood flooring and interior woodwork before oiling. It's high water repellency makes it ideal for use in areas subject to high levels of humidity such as kitchens and bathrooms.
Ensure that surfaces to be treated are clean, dry and free from any dust, dirt or other surface contaminants. For the best results, the moisture content of the wood should be less than 10%.Old Timber
