Allbäck's Linseed Oil Wax can be used on all absorbent surfaces such as wood, concrete, brick, slate, furniture, and more. It is also ideal for the maintenance of previously painted matte surfaces.
Linseed Oil Wax is made from purified linseed oil, beeswax, and natural pigment. The oil and the wax are boiled together so that the beeswax is incorporated as the linseed oil dries.
The wax provides a water-repellent, silky matte finish that can be cleaned with a weak solution of Linseed Soap and water.
Make your own shade by mixing the different colours of linseed oil wax with each other.
Apply with a sponge, cloth, or stiff brush. Allow to penetrate the surface. Wipe off excess with a clean cloth.
40 m² per litre (430 sqft per litre), depending on the substrate.
Approximately 24 hours at room temperature, with good ventilation and low humidity. It may take longer to dry on knots in the wood. Fully cures within about 2 weeks.
Instructions for floors
Waxing untreated wooden floors is a simple, fast, and lasting treatment. The linseed oil wax absorbs into the wood and prevents water from penetrating.
- Wash dirty floors with Linseed Soap and water. Use a wet vacuum to remove the water.
- Allow to dry. Sand with fine sand paper any fibres that appear (approx. 180 grit).
- Apply the wax with a scouring sponge. Work into the wood in the direction of the grain, a few boards at a time. Leave the wax to be absorbed for about 15-20 minutes. Wipe away any excess with a towel within an hour.
- The treatment is complete!
You can touch/walk on the surface right away. Footprints can be wiped off as you walk out of the room. Too much wax will produce a sticky surface with an uneven sheen and will take longer to dry.
Note : Linseed Oil Wax gives different results on different surfaces. Test first.
