Surface preparation

General Directions:

Surfaces must be dry, clean, free of dirt, grease and other surface contamination including previous coatings.
Oleofloor Natural can only be applied to bare wood surfaces or wood surfaces previously finished with Oleofloor Natural or
other wood flooring oils. ALL other finishes MUST be completely and thoroughly removed.
Always clean meticulously with a vacuum cleaner after each sanding, including any dust traps (skirting, radiators, pipes, window sills, etc).
Sand floor back to bare wood using appropriate system and abrasive grades, depending on condition of surface and wood species.
Cracks of 2 mm wide or less should be filled with Lianfloor and sanding resumed with 80 or 100 grit paper depending on the last grit used.
Finish with finishing grade up to grit No. 120 or 150 depending on the wood species and thickness of wear layer.

Sanding grades

Course Grades – 24, 30, 36
Medium Grades – 40, 50, 60

    Have used waxoil products before and, while they give a good lustre, they do tend to wear quite quickly. This is the first time I’ve ‘Oleofloor Natural’, I know it is supposed to have a matt finish but other than darkening the wood slightly you would be hard pushed to know the floor had been oiled.
