Properties Directions for use
Gloss: Silky-semi-mat.
Color: Pale-strawy (natural). After several months the wood gets a nice honey-like tincture. The compound can be colored with dry pigments. For external treatment, it is needed to use the compound only it its colored form. It is recommended using mineral pigments.
Complete composition: heat-polymerized mixture of linseed oil and wood oil; boiled down mixture of linseed oil, castor oil, wood oil and fatty acids from vegetable sources; heat-polymerized castor oil; heat-polymerized linseed oil; beeswax; 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 up, the compound should be mixed thoroughly and, if needed, warmed a little bit 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: ~60 to 65 sec (DIN-size beaker 4 mm).
Flash-point: Do not apply at more than 200°C.
Quantity used: For the first and second layers, 25 to 50 m2/l depending on absorptiveness of the surface.
Drying time: The compound is soaked in during 8 to 12 hours (1 layer, at temperature 20°C and humidity 50-60%). After that an excess can be removed and the surface needs to be polished. An adhesiveness disappears during 48 hours. In 24 hours the next layer application can be done. Final drying up takes place during 2 to 4 weeks at temperature 20°C and humidity 50-60%. At lower temperature and higher humidity the drying up time increases.
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 wood kind and 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 some excess with aid of a brush with short nap, a lint-free tissue or a roller with short nap. Do it rubbing the compound in along grains. If the compound has been soaked-in completely during 8 to 24 hours, apply the next layer in the similar way. If after 24 hours of application the compound has not soaked-in, a next layer application is not required. If after 8 to 24 hours after the compound application on some fields, the compound excess remained, while on other fields, the compound has soaked-in, redistribute the compound on the free fields. In 24 hours after the last layer application, remove a compound excess from the surface with aid of a brush with short nap of with a free-ling cotton tissue. Do not leave the compound for soaking-in more than 24 to 36 hours after its application as a compound polymerization takes place, after which excess removing gets much more difficult. An adhesiveness disappears during 48 hours. Final drying up takes place in 2 to 4 weeks. Above the final layer, not earlier than in 2-4 weeks, 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 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 and soap or non-abrasive detergent. If the surface is worn-out, apply an oil thin layer on the worn-out field according to the instruction. 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. Periodically (once per 6 to12 months), it is recommended refreshing the surface with aid of Care furniture wax No.5030.
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!
