Rubio Monocoat Smoke will age timber. Using this product allows for the creation of very unique and personalised effects as the shade of the ageing is dependent on both the amount of tannin and the type of timber.
NOTE: this product is a pre-treatment only. It does not protect the wood. For effective and durable protection, it has to be applied in combination with a Rubio Monocoat finishing oil.
Suitable: for most timbers, as a pre-treatment. The final effect will vary according to the amount of tannin in the wood and the final finish applied.
Appearance: The product reacts in accordance to the amount of tannic acid that is present in the wood. Smoke ages the timber and brings out the grain pattern. It gives a similar effect as smoking with ammonia but without the hazardous fumes or vapours
Dilution: Can be diluted with water if the concentration is too high.
Odour: Releases no toxic fumes or vapours
Application: with a brush, spray or roller.
Drying: approx 1 hour
Coverage: 17 - 40 sq.m/L depending on the application.
Coats: One coat. Post-treat with Monocoat Oil 2C for guaranteed molecular binding.
