How to use Rustins Tung Oil

  1. The surface must be clean, bare and sanded smooth and free of all traces of wax.
  2. Pure Tung Oil will bring out the natural colour of wood but if required the colour of the wood may be stained before applying the oil. Always carry out test on a small area to assess the colour of the oil.
  3. If natural open-grain is not required then use Rustins Grain Filler before oiling.
  4. Shake well before use.
  5. Using a clean soft cloth or brush apply liberally and allow the oil to penetrate for 20 minutes.
  6. Wipe of the excess with a clean soft cloth.
  7. The first coat of Rustins Pure Tung Oil can be diluted with 40% white spirit which will further assist penetration into the timber. Do not dilute subsequent coats.
  8. Under warm and dry conditions the product should be allowed to dry for 24 hours before further coats are applied.
  9. New or bare wood should be oiled 3 times initially but more coats can be applied for extra protection.
  10. The oiled surface should be allowed to cure for a few days before use.

Re-application is recommended annually to keep surfaces in good condition. When applying to previously oiled wood the surface should be first cleaned and any wax removed with white spirit or Rustins Surface Cleaner. If the product is to be applied to a previously coated surface, then carry out a small test for compatibility.
