Tung oil with added resins to provide additional durability and resistance to wear. Being tung oil based, Floorseal Oil nourishes timber and enhances its natural character with a satin finish.
It is perfect for coating new floors, or recoating previously coated timber floors, and it is easily maintained and recoated.
New or bare timber/cork:
Punch exposed nails below the surface. Note that holes and imperfections should be filled with timber putty after the first coat of Floorseal Oil to match the putty colour with the coated timber colour. Sand timber to an even, smooth surface. Vacuum and wipe to remove dust.
Previously coated surfaces:
Previous coatings need to be removed by sanding surface back to bare timber. Vacuum to remove dust
Surfaces to be coated must be dry and free from all dirt, dust, grease, wax and oil. Floorseal Oil should be mixed thoroughly, with a flat blade stirrer, before and during application, taking care NOT to introduce bubbles.
Apply with a Feast Watson Floor Finish Applicator, brush or short nap mohair roller. Do NOT apply product using spray equipment. Work along the whole length of 3 to 4 floorboards at a time, maintaining a wet edge to prevent lap marks and lay off in the direction of the grain. Take care to not introduce bubbles.
Apply a minimum of two coats of Floorseal Oil, ensuring that the first coat is thoroughly dry prior to applying the second coat.
Lightly sand after the first coat to remove all raised grain and to provide a smooth surface for the second coat, vacuum to remove dust.
After the second coat, if a higher gloss level is required, apply further coats until desired appearance is achieved.
Stain bare timber after sanding using Feast Watson Prooftint or Feast Watson Liming White as per the application instructions. Seal soft porous timbers such as pine with one coat of Timber Primer before staining to ensure even absorption of the stain.
To stain flooring, mix Prooftint with Feast Watson Prooftint Colour Reducer to allow time to evenly work the stain across the floor. Test the mixture rate on off-cuts of flooring to confirm the colour before staining the whole area.
Apply stain to the floor with a Floor Finish Applicator as per Prootint instructions. Allow 12 hours to dry before applying Floorseal Oil
To tint Floorseal Oil, add up to 10% Feast Watson Prooftint to Floorseal Oil and apply as per the application directions outlined above.
Allow Floorseal Oil to cure for a minimum of 4 weeks before polishing. Regularly clean using floorclean. Rejuvenate with Feast Watson Floorshine Polish.
When surface requires an additional coat, clean with Floorclean and apply one coat of Floorseal Oil as per application directions
