Treatex Hardwax Oil Ultra Natural is a next generation Hardwax Oil, designed specifically to help preserve the natural beauty and tone of light coloured timbers. Hardwax Oil Ultra Natural contains white pigments that, when applied as a first coat on lighter timbers underneath Hardwax Oil Ultra Clear, cancels the ‘warming effect’.
Hardwax Oil Ultra Natural follows the success of our current formulas benefits of being user friendly, easy to apply and quick drying, whilst offering improved ease of application and durability. The end result is a hard wearing and attractive finish in any situation including, floors, doors and kitchen worktops that is easy to maintain with our maintenance products and is spot repairable if the surface is damaged.
Treatex Hardwax Oil Ultra Natural is based on our formulation of sustainable raw materials such as Bees wax, Carnauba wax, Candilla wax, Linseed oil, Sunflower oil and Jojoba oil. It contains no biocides or preservatives.
Suitable for: Internal use
Recommended timbers: Lighter coloured timbers e.g. Oak, Pine, Ash, Beech, Birch, Maple, Sycamore etc.
Applications: Floors, doors, stairs, worktops, woodturning etc.
Natural Hardwax Oil contains a small amount of white pigment which allows it to be used in two different ways:
Hardwax Oil Ultra Natural is not intended to be used in the same method as Clear Hardwax oil and should either be overcoated with 2 coats of Hardwax Oil Ultra Clear or should be applied as 2 coats over Spruce Colour tone as outlined above. Applying more than one coat of Natural on its own will usually result in a milky/patchy finish.
1L will cover approximately 25m² in one coat depending on the timber and method of application.
2.5L will cover approximately 50m² in one coat depending on the timber and method of application.
We advise that when using Hardwax Oil Ultra Natural, sufficient product is purchased to complete the project and when more than one tin is required it is advisable to mix them together before use. We strongly recommend a small trial application prior to starting a project to ensure compatibility.
Method 1 – as a base coat for lighter timbers: Sand the surface to smooth bare wood using 80-120 grit sandpaper. Ensure that any previous finish has been fully removed. Remove dust, dirt and any other contaminates which may lead to uneven absorption of Hardwax Oil Ultra Natural. Make sure the surface to be treated is thoroughly dry. Stir tins and ensure product is at room temperature before use.
Method 2 – as a top coat for surfaces treated with Spruce Colour Tone: If you have applied a coat of Treatex Spruce Colour Tone within the last 24 hours then little preparation is needed. Make sure the previous coat is fully dry before overcoating with Hardwax Oil Ultra Natural. Remove dust, dirt, and any contaminates from the surface. Stir tins and ensure product is at room temperature before use.
Method 1 – as a base coat for lighter timbers. Hardwax Oil Ultra Natural should not be used as a base coat on darker coloured timbers. To change the appearance of light coloured timbers as little as possible, brush/roller on a thin coat of Hardwax Oil Ultra Natural. Leave for 10 minutes and then slow buff with a soft pad to remove excess followed by finishing with a lint free cloth. Alternatively, cloth the excess product by hand with a lint free cloth. If excess product is not removed the finish may dry with patchy white marks. Allow to dry – maintaining warmth and ventilation will enable the surface to dry within 3-6 hours. Once dry, seal with two coats of Treatex Hardwax Oil Ultra Clear which is available in Flat Matt, Matt, Satin or Gloss sheen levels (see: Treatex Hardwax Oil Ultra Clear).
Method 2 – as a top coat for surfaces treated with Spruce Colour Tone. For a brighter white, seal our Spruce Colour Tone by using a brush or roller to evenly apply Hardwax Oil Ultra Natural – maintaining warmth and ventilation will enable the surface to dry within 3-6 hours. Apply with a brush or roller a second coat of Natural Hardwax Oil. Allow to dry thoroughly overnight before the surface is lightly used. Usually ready to walk on after 8 hours and ready to replace furniture etc. after 18 hours.
