Information on use

Drying 16 h / 20 °C
Can be coated over 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 Polish the last layer to a shine, if necessary, with leather brushes. Ability to top coat: possible with another coat of the same product or with suitable colourless materials; see section "Special information".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.
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 47 - 95 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 20 °C
Processing instructions 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. Polish the last layer to a shine, if necessary, with leather brushes. The material dries with oxidation – please observe the general application instructions.
Particular instructions 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. Pre-priming possible according to the desired finish and substrate, for example with: GE 110, GE 120, GE 140 or GS 170. 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.
