Properties Directions for use
Gloss: Silky-mat (after a small polishing).
Color: Pale strawy (natural). After several months the wood acquires nice honey-like tincture. The compound can be colored with dry pigments.
Complete composition: heat-polymerized mixture of linseed oil and wood oil; boiled down mixture of linseed oil, castor oil, wood oil, resin of conifers, glycerin and fatty acids from vegetable sources; heat-polymerized castor oil; wax of carnauba palm; fast-drying materials based on cobalt (less than 0.01%) and manganese (less than 0.01%).
Content of artificial substances: The compound contains two artificial substances: they are fast-drying materials (siccatives) based on cobalt and manganese. The compound contains neither conserving agents nor siccatives based on lead, barium, other dangerous heavy metals and other artificial substances.
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: Natural waxes, oils and resins make 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. After freezing up mix the content thoroughly and the compound consistence and properties will be restored in whole (the process accelerated in case of container warming up 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: 25-40 m2/l depending on absorptiveness of the surface.
Drying time: The compound is needed to be polished not earlier than in 15-20 minutes and not later than in 1 hour after application, or else you would encounter difficulties in the polishing process. A next layer application can be done in 24 hours. Final drying up lasts 24 to 48 hours at temperature 20°C and humidity 50-60%. During 14 days it is not recommended subjecting the cover to increased loads and moisture action.
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 +12 to +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 a brush, a roller with short nap, a natural lint-free tissue or a rubber spatula by a very thin layer. While application process, rub the compound into the surface along wood grain. Avoid excessive volume application. Not earlier than in 15-20 minutes and not later than in 1 hour, the surface needs to be polished on the fresh (raw) layer with a soft natural tissue (cotton, linseed) or with beige pad. The later (during 1 hour) the surface is polished, the higher its gloss degree will be. In 24 hours it is possible to apply a second layer in similar way.As a rule, application of 1 or 2 layers is enough. If needed it is possible to apply the third layer in the same way. Surface final drying up takes 24 to 48 hours. During 14 days it is not recommended subjecting the cover to increased loads and moisture action. Attention! After 1 hour any surface polishing gets difficult or even impossible. 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 Floor hard 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 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 (contamination), rub the surface with a small-grain sandpaper sheet (for example, Р240) and then on the treated field, apply the compound. For 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 them 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!
