Blackfriar Danish Oil is ideal for interior or exterior wood as it penetrates deep into the timber for a beautiful and long-lasting finish. It provides a Matt / satin sheen that is scratch proof and comes with additional UV protection.
How to use Blackfriar Danish Oil
- Ensure surface to be oiled is smooth, clean, dry and free of contamination. For surfaces previously treated with oils or waxes clean back the surface to bare timber with fine wire wool and white spirit, working along the grain.
- Shake thoroughly prior to use.
- Apply oil liberally by brush or rag.
- Leave for a few minutes for the oil to absorb into the wood then wipe off any surplus.
- Allow the oil to dry overnight before using or re-coating.
- When applying to new wood you can thin the first coat with the maximum of 5% white spirit.
- 4 coats are recommended.
Please note –
For exterior wood – Blackfriar Danish Oil will require regular maintenance. For optimum performance, inspect the coating on a regular basis and recoat at least annually or at the first sign of breakdown.
On previously sealed surfaces some oils may dry to a slight gloss. This can be reduced by gently rubbing the surface with fine wire wool and wax polish, working with the grain.
Coverage – Up to 14m2 per litre per coat.
Drying Time – Touch dry in 2 – 4 hours. Recoat after 16 hours and within 3 days. Drying times are based on an ambient temperature of 20°C and 50% relative humidity. Lower temperatures or higher humidity will prolong the drying and overcoating times.
Clean Up – Take extra care as application cloths and soiled cleaning rags may self ignite without warning. Lay cloths out flat in single layers to dry, or wash out thoroughly in warm soapy water before disposal. Remove as much product from application equipment as possible before washing with white spirit.
Do not empty into drains or water courses. Some local authorities have special facilities for the disposal of waste coatings.
Storage – Store in a dry, safe place. Do not store in environments where extreme temperatures may occur. Keep within 5-30°C. Do not store in direct sunlight.
