Kreidezeit Resistant Floor Oil

It is about Kreidezeit's resistant floor oil. The oil is for indoors, natural, like all Kreidezeit products. It gives the treated surface resistance to intense circulation. Can be used for treating wooden floors, corkceramic or natural stone.

Why is this oil so resistant

In the composition of hard floor oil we find linseed oil, resistant wood oil, turpentine oil, calcium rosin, glycerine ester rosin. The presence of linseed oil helps the mixture to penetrate deeply into wood or other porous materials (stone, cork). This is possible because the molecule of linseed oil is smaller than that of other oils. The mixture penetrates deep into the wood and binds to the wood fibre, strengthening it.

How to work

The undiluted oil is applied directly to the untreated wood in two coats, possibly followed by a treatment with Carnauba wax or Hard floor wax. Application can be done with a brush, brush, trowel or cloth. To penetrate the wood, repeated circular or along the grain movements are required.

After application, allow time for the material to absorb into the wood. After 30-45 min. the excess oil on the surface is wiped off before drying with a dry cloth.

Preparing the support.Untreated wood is cleaned, sanded with sandpaper 120-150, edges rounded and cleaned of dust. Remove resin pockets with alcohol.

Oil application. On highly absorbent surfaces (softwood, cork, tiles burnt at lower temperatures) apply evenly and in excess the resistant floor oil. Leave approx. 30-45 minutes, after which the excess is removed with a dry, unsoaked cloth until the surface has an even sheen and silky appearance. Removal is necessary because excess oil oxidises from air and becomes sticky.

On substrates with a lower absorption capacity (hardwood) the resistant floor oil should be diluted 20% with turpentine oil conditioner.

After drying the first layer of oil - 24 hours at 20ºC - it is made sanding between layers with 220-280 grit sandpaper, sand and apply the next coat under the same conditions as the first. This is the final coat. On hardwoods it is best to apply a single coat of oil and finally apply a coat of hard floor wax.

Oil consumption is between 65 and 100 ml/m²/layer.

It is very important that the resistant floor oil does not form a film but penetrates deep into the wood. For increased wear resistance, it is recommended to apply a thin layer of hard floor wax or Carnauba wax emulsion.

Surface maintenance. Storage and cleaning of used materials

If waxed or oiled floors do not have too many impurities, they should be rinsed with warm water. Do not use hot water or degreasing substances, especially abrasive ones. For a natural cleaning of floors with visible traces of dirt, use Marseille soap, followed by a thin layer of Carnauba wax diluted with water. Basically wipe the floor with a cloth with this solution.

If the floor looks dry after a long period of use and washing, apply another coat of oil with a cloth. The surface reaches maximum hardness after approx. 4 weeks after application of the oil, during which time it should be used with care and without being subjected to aggression.

Store the oil in frost-free places in airtight containers. Contact with air causes the oil to harden and form a puddle on the surface.

Like any oil or petroleum derivative, hard floor oil can also suffer from self-combustion. It is therefore recommended that the tools used are washed thoroughly after use or kept in a container of water. The same applies to residues left after work.

Advantages of using floor oil
  • It is a natural, non-aggressive product;
  • Allows wood to naturally exchange moisture with the environment. There is no risk of cracks in the film due to dimensional changes;
  • Provides long-lasting, durable protection;
  • It is easy to use, requiring no special materials or skills;
  • It enhances the natural beauty of the wood and has a pleasant, silky sheen;
  • Low consumption with maximum protection;
  • The finished surface is easy to maintain, clean and refinish.

Resistant floor oil is a great choice if you want naturally finished floors without any health risks. Especially when there are children in the house, such a finish is preferable.

Good luck and good luck!
