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
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 120 - 320
Finishing Timely, regular and professional cleaning and care of the oiled surface significantly increases its useful life.

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.
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 37 - 110 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 - 30 °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. In special cases the material can also be thinly applied by spraying. Rubbing in and subsequent removal of the excess are as for manual application. The corresponding safety instructions for spray application must be followed!

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 40 g/m².
Particular instructions 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. 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.
“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.”

The coloured oil can be hardened 25 : 1 with OIL-HARDENER HIGH-SOLID OR 5180 before processing to provide additional protection against pigment abrasion. Or the coloured oil surface can alternatively be finish treated with a clear oil. Our NATURAL-SOLID-OIL GE 11254 can generally be used for this purpose. In the case of lighter colour tones, it is advisable to use PROTECT-OIL OE 52842 due to its light intrinsic colour and its excellent light fastness for an oil.
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.

Bare wood sanding: 320 grit with subsequent dust removal.
Apply 1 x 10 - 20 g/m² Hesse COLOR-SOLID-OIL GB 11252-070 using a fine sanding fleece and abrade it in evenly.
Allow a brief absorption period then use a soft cotton cloth to remove the excess until the entire surface appears evenly dry. Drying: > 16 h / 20 °C with adequate air exchange. Apply 1 x 10 - 20 g/m² Hesse COLOR-SOLID-OIL GB 11252-070 with a fine sanding fleece and rub in evenly. Allow a brief absorption period then use a soft cotton cloth to remove the excess until the entire surface appears evenly dry. Drying: > 16 h / 20 °C with adequate air exchange. Full load bearing capacity is achieved after > 7 d / 20 °C. Rustic oak floorboards, laid as per instructions. Bare wood sanding: 150 grit with subsequent dust removal. Apply 1 x 15 - 20 g/m² Hesse COLOR-SOLID-OIL GB 11252-020 using a spatula. Absorption period: 1 h / 20 °C (depending on surface area), without padding. Apply 1 x 15 - 20 g/m² Hesse COLOR-SOLID-OIL GB 11252-020 using a spatula. Absorption period: 1 h / 20 °C (depending on surface area) then use a single-disc sanding machine with white pad to work it in until the surface appears dry. Pad it off again after a further 20 - 30 min / 20 °C until the surface is even. Drying: > 16 h / 20 °C with adequate air exchange. The flooring is then accessible with care. Full load bearing capacity is achieved after > 7 d / 20 °C. Advantages of this application method: pronounced accentuation and protective effect, formation of complete oil structure within a day, time saving (only one intensive and one light padding stage)
