Kunos Oil Sealer brings out the full rich beauty of all timber and dries to a hard satin sheen finish that is water and stain repellant. It is used by many fine furniture makers and wood turners, and commercially and domestically on floors and furniture.
Suitable: for floors, countertops, furniture, wood sculptures, musical instruments, children's toys, and timber trim and panelling in homes and commercial premises. Also suitable for concrete floors and some absorbent stone tiles. Test first on veneers to make sure it doesn't affect the glue in these.
Certified Food Safe

Even sanding is important for even colour absorption.

initially when applying has high VOC, but no ongoing VOC emissions when dry. See further information on the type of VOC in LIVOS Oils
is good. Can be used in high traffic areas and is stain and water repellant. However similar to most floor finishes it is advisable to wipe up spills as soon as possible. Scratches can be repaired by lightly sanding and re-oiling. Stains can be cleaned with LIVOS Trena pH Neutral Cleaner
Vapour Permeability: is good. Allows the wood to breathe.
Preparation: must be applied to new, clean, sanded wood.
apply in temperatures above 12 degrees C. Apply with a cloth on furniture, and lambswool applicator on floors. Allow to penetrate for 10 - 15 mins then wipe off excess till touch dry. Allow to harden over night and repeat for second coat. Apply 2 coats on furniture or trim, and 3 coats on floors and countertops. Buff when applying, or between coats, to give an extra smooth shiny result. Note: Ardvos Wood Oil
or Linus Priming Oil
can be used as the first coat and Kunos Oil Sealer as the final two coats.
Drying: is dependent on good airflow over the surface. Always get as much ventilation and airflow over a floor as possible when applying the oil and during drying. Allow a day between each coat to dry and do not apply the next coat if it is still tacky. Allow a couple of days to dry after the final coat before allowing any traffic on the floor. Takes 5 - 6 weeks to get to its full hardness so care needs to be taken to avoid water spills and heavy traffic during this time.
Coverage: generally 1L is sufficient for 3 coats on approximately 15 sq.M. However this may vary with different timbers. The first coat will absorb the most oil (approx 22sq.m/L), the second coat a lot less (approx 90sq.m/L), and the third coat requires only a very small amount - approx 250sq.m/L.
Coats: 2 coats may be sufficient on timber trim and general furniture. 3 coats on floors and countertops.
easy to maintain. Vacuum floors regularly, and damp mop with a simple solution of the LIVOS Trena pH Neutral Cleaner

Scratches can be repaired by a light sand and then re-oiled with Kunos.
