Properties Directions for use
Gloss: Sateen or silky-mat (after a slight polishing).
Color: Pale strawy (natural). After several months the wood acquires nice honey-like tincture. Tinting is possible with dry pigments.
Complete composition: beeswax, linseed oil, wood oil, castor oil, fir needle oil.
Content of artificial substances: The compound contains no artificial substances, fast-drying materials, conserving agents or heavy metals.
Thinning agent: not applicable. In a case of thickening, mix the compound thoroughly and if needed, warm it up slightly in a container with hot water (do not use heaters or gas-burners!).
Solids content: 99 to 100%.
Storage: It is supposed to be stored in a dry cool place in tightly closed packing under temperature not lower than +5°С and preferably not higher than +35°С. In a case of freezing down after a thorough mixing, a consistency and properties of the compound restore completely (the process accelerates in a case of the container warming with hot water).
Shelf life: Storage term in the original closed container is about 12 months.
Container volume: 0.5; 1; 2.5 and 10 l.
Class of hazard: Not applicable.
Density: 0.92 to 0.95 g/cm3.
Viscosity: The compound is thixotropic.
Flash-point: Do not apply at more than 200°C.
Quantity used: 25 to 40 m2/l depending on absorptiveness of the surface.
Drying time: The compound soaks in during 12 to 24 hours (1 layer at temperature 20°C and humidity 50-60%), after which an excess can be removed and the surface is to be polished. Final drying up takes 7 to 14 days & nights at temperature 20°C and humidity 50-60%.
Surface preparation: Remove an old film coat (if any). Clean the surface from dirt and grease (by washing up with water and soap) and dry up to the humidity level 14-15%. In dependence with a wood kind and a desirable smoothness, grind off the surface with abrasive means with grain P100-220 (it is recommended in average not less than P150-180), remove dust thoroughly.
Application process: The surface must be dry; the recommended humidity is not more than 14 or 15%. It is recommended to conduct the treatment at temperature not less than +15°С. The compound is applied in 1 or 2 (sometimes in 3) layers. Mix the compound properly and apply it on the surface with an excess. Use for it a brush with short nap or a lint-free natural tissue and rub the compound in along wood grain. If the compound would soak in completely during 8 to 24 hours, then in the similar way, apply the second layer. But if after 24 hours after the application it would turn out that the compound didn’t soak in, the next layer application is not required.If after 8 to 24 hours after the first or the second layer application on some fields, some compound excess remained while on other fields the compound soaked in, then redistribute the compound onto the free fields.In 24 hours after the last layer application, remove the compound excess from the surface with aid of a brush with short nap or lint-free natural tissue. After that for getting a silky gloss, the surface can be polished by a brush or a lint-free natural tissue or a white pad. Do not leave the compound for soaking in for more than 24 to 36 hours after application as a polymerization of the compound would take place, after which the excess removing process would be a considerably more difficult task. Final drying up takes place in 7 to 14 days & nights.Above the final layer, not earlier than in 3 days, the layer of Carnauba wax, high gloss No.1090 can by apply.
Tinting: In the compound, dry pigments can be added in volume up to 30% For uniform mixing up it is recommended first to dilute a pigment in a small compound volume of Wax-oil and then to mix up with the rest of compound.
Cleaning and care: The surface can be wiped with a wet tissue. In a case of contamination, wash it up with warm water with soap or with non-abrasive detergent. If the surface is worn-out, apply a compound thin layer on the worn-out field. In a case of a local damage (or contamination), the surface should be scraped with a sandpaper with small grain (for example P240) and then the treated field should be covered with the compound. For a better conservation of the silky gloss and fresh look of the surface, it is recommended wetting cleaning, namely wiping the surface with water, to 10 liters of which 1 or 2 tablespoons of the emulsion of carnauba palm wax No.1090 should be added.
Tool cleaning: Immediately after use it is needed to wash the tool with warm water with soap or detergent and to dry it up.
Utilization: An empty container must be utilized in accordance with regional legislation. Any dried up product remainders can be disposed together with domestic garbage.
Safety advice: To store in a childproof place. It is forbidden to pour remainders into sewage. In a case of contact with eyes, wash with a lot of water. Soaked with the product materials (tissues, dresses, sponges) and tools must be washed up with water and soap and dried up in a fireproof container or on a fireproof surface as during the drying up process, a hazard is present of a spontaneous combustion. After that the materials can be disposed together with common garbage.

The compound contains completely natural substances. That is why before its application it is necessary to ensure that you do not suffer from allergy to vegetable substances and products of beekeeping!
