• Quick-drying natural oil
  • Low-solvent, so a pleasant odour
  • Antimicrobial effect according to ISO 22196: 2007
Is a mixture of extremely low-solvent and low-odour high solid natural oils with excellent mechanical and chemical resistance. For low-emission surface finishes on exclusive wood surfaces subject to normal to high indoor demands. Easy to apply, fast drying and free from cobalt and lead-based siccatives. NATURAL-SOLID-OIL already exhibits good resistance and abrasion resistance in the first coat without hardener. The product can optionally be hardened for even faster drying and even better resistance. Apply once or twice using a spatula, roller or cloth and then rub it in and remove the excess. Our NATURAL-SOLID-OIL is so high-yielding that the wood is reliably protected by just one application of the hardened oil. This natural oil contains at least 94 % of renewable raw materials and only has a solvent content of less than 0.5 %. The oiled surfaces are suitable for contact with food of all kinds.

Information on use

Drying 16 h / 20 °C
Subsequent coating within 36 h / 20 °C
Stackable after 16 - 24 h / 20 °C
Complete drying 24 h / 20 °C
Accessible after 16 h / 20 °C
Load bearing after 7 d / 20 °C
Surface preparation In the furniture sector: Clean, well seasoned wood, depending on species, application process and the desired effect. On parquet flooring: Careful, even and graduated bare wood sanding of properly laid and prepared parquet surface.
Substrate sanding grits from-to 120 - 320
Finishing After adequate drying.
On furniture: regular cleaning and care using Proterra Cleaning agent GR 1900.
On parquet flooring: initial care and subsequent maintenance using Hesse PROTECT-CLEANER PR 90 or Hesse ANTISLIP-CLEANER PR 93 and Hesse INTENSIV-CLEANER PR 91.

In order to preserve the exclusivity of the oiled surface as long as possible, in time and regular oiling is required.

Comments on sanding The quality and uniformity of the wood and of the lacquer sanding are crucial to the final surface finish. After sanding, remove dust as prescribed.
Yield per coat 48 - 96 m²/l

The spreading rate is heavily dependent on the type of application. The specifications relate to a liter of ready-for-use product, if necessary including hardener and thinner.
Working Temperature Range 20 - 40 °C
Storage temperature 10 - 25 °C
conditions of transport frost-free - up to a maximum of 35 °C
Processing instructions In the furniture sector: Apply and rub in the product with a saturated fine sanding fleece. After a short exposure time, remove any excess with a cotton cloth. The surface should appear dry; if not, drying problems may occur. On parquet flooring: Apply the material with an appropriate trowel; after a short exposure time, work in evenly using the single-disc sander and white non-abrasive pad until the surface appears dry.
Optional, additional sealing:
Surfaces treated 2 x with the oil at a mixing ratio of 25 : 1 with OIL-HARDENER HIGH-SOLID OR 5180 can be sealed without sanding using Hesse HYDRO Seals (e.g. PURA-ONE HDE 51-(gloss level) or PURA-NATURA HDE 52-0) after drying over night at 20 °C room temperature with sufficient air circulation.
If the oil surface is older than 16 h / 20 °C), it should be lightly sanded back (do not sand through it!) to achieve a good surface result.
This additional sealing will influence the colour tone, feel and look of the surface. Please assess this based on a trial coating.
This product must only be combined with other approved and technically suitable products when used as a flame retardant coating material for seagoing vessels according to the latest version of SOLAS 74/88 Reg. II-2/3, II-2/5 and II-2/6, IMO Resolution MSC.36(63)-(1994 HSC-Code) 7 and IMO Resolution MSC.97(73)-(2000 HSC-Code) 7. The maximum application amount in wet film when using this product as a flame retardant coating material for seagoing vessels is 30 g/m².
Particular instructions NATURAL-SOLID-OIL can be used as an accentuating and wood content blocking basecoat beneath special HYDRO-PU lacquers.

Complete drying and the mechanical and chemical resistance of the surface will be increased by hardening at 100 : 4 with OR 5180 or OR 5188. Pot life of the mixture: 1 hour at 20 °C room-temperature. The hardener contains isocyanate. Please observe safety instructions; see the safety data sheet. The material dries with oxidation – please observe the general application instructions. A skin can form on open containers due to the spontaneous reaction of the product with atmospheric oxygen! Please check before application! This skin cannot be incorporated, but must be carefully removed and disposed of before application. We recommend that you also sieve the material before applying it.

“A risk assessment was undertaken according to Directive 2014/90/EU, Annex II, Section 3. This coating does not pose a physical risk to health nor a risk to the environment when cured and dried.”

For coating the insides of cupboards, we recommend Proterra Resit GE 17102 because of its low intrinsic smell. After suitable drying, can be re-coated with, for example, GZ 1020-0001, GZ 1022-0045 or GZ 1622.
General instructions on workmanship Materials with oxidative drying: a skin can form on the surface in containers, mainly opened containers. This should be removed prior to use. Low temperatures, increased ambient humidity, inadequate air exchange and wood contents that inhibit drying can extend the oil’s drying time.
The risk of spontaneous combustion means that coating substances generating heat during drying (oxidative drying oils) and coating substances forming highly flammable deposits may not be applied in the same spray booth without further precautions (see BGR 500, section 3: Handling different coating substances). Cotton cloths, cardboard and paper saturated with oil pose a risk of spontaneous combustion due to heat accumulation. They should therefore be spread out in the air to dry before being disposed of. Even oil-saturated wood dust is prone to spontaneous combustion; as a precaution please do not dispose of it in sealed containers and, where possible, do not use the spray booth for sanding. The oil itself does not combust spontaneously.
The necessary cleaning, care and refresh intervals should be matched to the number of layers of oil applied and the nature and intensity of use. The material properties have been tested on commonly available woods, such as oak, beech, etc. Resins in softwoods, coloured woods and exotic or unusual wood species can result in delayed drying and optical impairments. Please therefore check for suitability prior to use on such woods. Please also note that oils, like almost all natural materials, change colour over time under the influence of light and heat. Their colour can alter both under the influence of light (e.g. the sun’s UV rays, etc.) and due to light deprivation (yellowing at absence of light, e.g. beneath tablecloths, carpets, cabinets, etc.). This can become particularly apparent on brightly pigmented substrates. Oiled surfaces have a distinctive odour. This diminishes in a matter of days with progressive drying.
