Surface preparation Clean, dry wood, free of oil, grease, wax and silicones. Sanded as prescribed and free from sanding dust.
Substrate sanding grits from-to 240 - 320
Finishing Rub in with fine rubbing felt.  Remove any excess with a cotton cloth. Immediately after application, polish with leather-sisal brush.
Comments on sanding The raw-wood sanding must be adapted to the required application quantity; the lower the application quantity, the finer the sanding grit (up to grit 240 when buffing). Ensure that the edge sanding and surface sanding are even. The sanding quality is crucial in ensuring a good quality of the final coat!
Yield per coat 191 - 318 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.

Storage temperature 10 - 30 °C
Working temperature 80 °C
conditions of transport frost-free - up to a maximum of 35 °C
Processing instructions One to two-layer application with 4 - 8 g/m² on suitable substrates; maximum total application amount in wet film for hot spraying procedures: 14 - 16 g/m². Maximum total application amount in wet film for manual application of the paste-like material at 20 °C room temperature: 8 - 12 g/m². Rub in with a fine sanding fleece and remove any excess with a cotton cloth. Polish with leather-sisal brushes immediately after application. Hot spraying up to 80 °C is possible; any excess can also be melted down with IR radiation, to give greater depth of penetration and making it easier to polish. Industrial use on roller lines with smooth rollers (Perponan quality) with closed jaws and without circulation. Completely remove any excess with sisal brushes or a Molton unit. Manual application: completely remove any excess with sisal brushes or a Molton unit. The material dries with oxidation – please observe the general application instructions.
Particular instructions 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 e.g. GZ 1020-0001, GZ 1622, GE 11025-2001, GE 12006-2001, GE 14004-2001. Pre-priming possible according to the desired finish and substrate, for example with: GE 17102, GE 11025-2001. After suitable drying can be recoated with the same product. It is also possible to use GE 12006-2001 to repair the surface.
General instructions on workmanship Hot spraying:up to 80°C is possible: Any excess can also be melted down with IR radiation, to give greater depth of penetration and making it easier to polish. Rollers: Smooth rollers (Perponan quality) with closed jaws and without circulation. Completely remove any excess with sisal brushes or a Molton unit. Manual application: Completely remove any excess with sisal brushes or a Molton unit. Pre- and post-cleaning with temperature control Application only possible with Proterra oil GE 11066 possible; Only clean after cooling with OV 190!
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.

Children's room fittings, natural beech Wood sanding: grit 240 - 280 with subsequent dust removal Coating: 1 x 4 - 8 g/m² Proterra CEROL Hardwax GE 14004-2001 for hot spraying procedures Rub in with a fine sanding fleece, remove any excess with a cotton cloth, polish with a leather-sisal brush. Packable after at least 12 h / 20 °C room temperature with sufficient air circulation.
