RUBIO MONOCOAT Oil Plus 2C is a unique timber finish unlike any other. It is a zero VOC oil that chemically bonds to the surface layer of raw wood making it water and stain repellent. It's value lies in the ease of a one coat finish - especially on large areas requiring a stain finish. No overlap marks, no grain rise, no sanding between coats, no second coat! See Video about the product
It is used worldwide in over 40 different countries. See more information at rubiomonocoat.com

Durability: is very good when applied and maintained as directed. See a review of the product durability.
Vapour Permeability: is good
Preparation: because this is a low build finish that only combines with the surface raw fibres of the wood it is important to prepare the wood in the correct manner, so enough product is absorbed and it bonds well to the timber.
This involves sanding to 80 or 100 grit only, removing all dust thoroughly with a good vacuum, then cleaning it with RUBIO MONOCOAT Raw Wood Cleaner - an evaporative cleaner that removes the last traces of dust and natural oils from the surface.
Application: mix component A + B in ratio of 3:1. Apply by hand with a cloth or pad, or low speed buffer on floors. Leave to penetrate for 10mins then wipe off excess.

Drying: touch dry after 12 hours. Dry to walk on after 36 hrs. Full cure after 1 week.
Coverage: 30 - 50 sq.m/L depending on the timber, sanding, and application method.
Coats: one coat only. This product bonds to the surface raw wood and the rest wipes off.
Maintenance: easy to maintain. Vacuum floors regularly, and damp mop with a simple solution of the RUBIO MONOCOAT Soap (a pH neutral soap that wont dry out the protective oil) diluted in water. For tables and furniture put the diluted RUBIO MONOCOAT Soap in a spray bottle or purchase the ready to use Surface Care Spray version.
Spot cleaning of stains can be done with the Surface Care for general stains, or one of the more specific stain removers made by RUBIO MONOCOAT - Lime Spot Remover, Tannin Remover, or Grease Remover.
Periodic rejuvenation of the finish can be done with the RUBIO MONOCOAT Refresh Spray or Maintenance Oil.
