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.

Processing instructions One to two coat application with 4 - 8 g/m² on suitable substrates, maximum total application amount for the hot spray process: 14 - 16 g/m²,

Apply material and rub in with a fine sanding fleece. Remove excess with cotton cloth or similar. Polish with leather-sisal brush immediately after application.
Particular instructions For coating the insides of cupboards, we recommend. Proterra RESIT GS 170 because of its low intrinsic smell. Depending on the desired surface and base material, priming can be carried out with, e.g: GS 170 or GE 110. When sufficiently dry, can be varnished over with, for example, GE 140. For repair purposes, also with GE 120. For hot spraying: cover per l 100 - 150 m². Pre- and post-cleaning with temperature control. Application only possible with Proterra oil GE 11066. Clean only after cooling with OV 190! 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. Stir carefully before use. Please observe the latest 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.

Children's room fittings, natural beech
Wood sanding: 240 - 280 grit with subsequent dust removal
Apply 1 x 4 - 8 g/m² Proterra CEROL Hardwax GE 140 using the hot spray process.
Use a fine sanding fleece to rub the material in and then use a soft cotton cloth to remove the excess.
Then use a leather-sisal brush to polish the surface.
The surface is packable after drying for at least 12 h / 20 °C room temperature and with sufficient air circulation.
