In this section, you can read how the wood surfaces are coated with oil, how to prepare the surface, how the oil is applied. You will also learn how much the consumption, temperature, and humidity are needed during operation and drying. In addition, you will learn how to nurture more oil with coated surfaces. It is important to know how to apply oil based varnish so your woodwork can be beautiful and perfectly protected again. Save your wood furniture in the right way.
Preparation of the surface before coating with oil
Before coating, the wood must be dry, properly treated, free from dust, grease, wax and other impurities. The high quality evenly sanding of the wood surface is crucial in achieving the final smoothness and thus the satisfying final appearance of the coated element. Uneven grinding causes differences in the absorption of oil, resulting in a colorless and uneven level of surface brightness.
Before applying the oil, the wood must be dry, otherwise, it will not absorb oil, and the protection is not adequate.
The oil should be stirred well before use. The easiest way to apply is a lint-free cloth. It is also possible to apply with a brush or a roller, and some are applied even with a spatula, submerging or spraying. When applying to dip, the wooden element is completely immersed in the oil, and after 10-60 seconds, set it so that the oil can flow. Even in this case, after 5-20 minutes, the residual oil should be wiped off and the surface must be polished.
While the oil droughts, heat is released, and on clothes, sponges and paper, which we used to apply and wipe off the oil, excessive heating, and even self-ignition can occur. In the oil of soaked clothes and other porous working tools (foam rolls, sponge, paper) immediately after use, it should be cleaned, ie soaked in water or burned, as there may be self-ignition.
Care of coated surfaces
Surfaces are treated with the same product as for the first coating. The required care interval depends on the type of wood, mechanical loads and exposure to moisture. We recommend a regular check of the quality of the protection you can perform with a simple test with a drop of water. If the wood absorbs the drop, protection is already needed. The matte and boring appearance of the surface also suggests that it should be re-painted with oil.
Preparation of the surface is very important for the beautiful finish, it must be gently scrubbed and all dust must be removed. Before applying the oil, the wood should be well dried. Preparation of the surface is very important for the beautiful finish, it must be gently scrubbed and all dust must be removed. Before applying the oil, the wood should be well dried. Oil is applied to such surface and, after a certain period of time, the excess is wiped. The procedure can be repeated after 24 hours, if necessary.
