Sadolin Floor Oil is suitable for all bare or previously oiled wooden flooring including hardwood, softwood boards, and parquet. It is not suitable for use on laminate flooring.
Timber surfaces must be suitably prepared, clean, sound and dry. Sadolin Floor Oil should ideally be applied onto bare timber or previously oiled surfaces. The moisture content should not exceed 14% prior to coating.
Sadolin Floor Oil can be used on previously oiled surfaces, but is not suitable for use where a higher build finish has been used previously.
Please Note: Special precautions should be taken during the surface preparation of pre-1960's painted surfaces as they may contain harmful lead.
Always do a small test area before beginning any project to assess consistency and compatibility of the final finish. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times. Sadolin Floor Oil is supplied ready for use and should not be thinned. Shake can thoroughly before use. During use the Floor Oil should be at room temperature.
Do not apply when air / substrate temperatures are below 8℃ or above 25℃ or if the relative humidity is above 65% during application or drying periods. Failure to meet these requirements may adversely affect the absorption, visual quality and durability of the finish. Protect adjacent areas and walls against splashes and spillage. For the first few weeks after being treatment, care should be taken to avoid stains on the floor.
Please Note: The number of applications necessary will partly depend on how much oil is absorbed by the floor. The best result is obtained with several thinner coats.
Remove as much product as possible from tools before cleaning. Clean brushes and equipment with a proprietary brush cleaner immediately after use. If spilled, Sadolin Floor Oil should be removed immediately while still wet, using warm soapy water.
After the initial treatment, a maintenance coat of Sadolin Floor Oil should be applied once or twice a year, depending on the level of foot traffic and frequency of cleaning, or when the surface begins to look dull. Regular maintenance will restore the lustre of the wood floor and should be carried out before bare wood is exposed.
