Information on use

Drying 16 h / 20 °C
Subsequent coating within 24 h / 20 °C
Stackable after 16 - 24 h / 20 °C
Complete drying 7 d / 20 °C
Load bearing after 7 d / 20 °C
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 Over-paintability: possible with another coat of the same product or with suitable colourless materials. For coating the insides of cupboards, we recommend Proterra RESIT GS 170 because of its low intrinsic smell. After suitable drying, can be re-coated with, for example, GE 100, GE 110, GE 120, GE 140.

Storage temperature 10 - 30 °C
Working temperature 20 °C
conditions of transport frost-free - up to a maximum of 35 °C
Processing instructions Graduated raw-wood sanding with 240 - 320 grit with subsequent dust removal. Rub in with sanding fleece, allow to soak in briefly and remove excess with a cotton cloth. The surface should be dry; if not, drying problems may occur.
Particular instructions
The material dries with oxidation – please observe the general application instructions.
Skin may form due to the high reactivity. Please remove before agitating. Subsequently the material should be filtered as a precaution.
Storage class as per German Industrial Health and Safety Regulations (BetrSichV): Highly flammable. Please observe the latest version of the material safety data sheet!
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.
