The Heritage Natural Concentrated Finishing Oil is a richer mix of the oils and solids found in the Original Finish, with less of the citrus solvent. This finish is best for hand application or commercial paint sprayers, and can be used anywhere, but it is especially beautiful and rich on furniture, softwood floors, reclaimed timbers, weathered exteriors, weathered wood anywhere, earthen floors or even concrete. This product makes a beautiful top coat in high moisture areas, counter tops, and floors. It works wonders on floors or timbers, especially on reclaimed or absorbent species like pine. For fine woodwork or for floors, power buff with a terry cloth pad, or thick cotton towel under the white pad with the edges tucked under and held by the buffing wheel. Or just rub on thin coats with an old cotton T-shirt. For earthen floors, build up 4-6 coats of oil as desired, let dry to the touch then buff in a coat or two of our Liquid Wax End Sealer for a lovely top coat.
Sanding between coats is not necessary, however, wet sanding and buffing produces a superb finish. It can also be used on very dry timber as the initial coat for deeper hydration with fewer overall coats needed.
Coverage: Approx. 400 square feet per gallon or 500 board feet per gallon; rough-sawn materials tend to absorb more. You get less coverage on the first coat and more on the second usually. The density of the wood is also a factor. Softer woods like pine or reclaimed Doug. Fir will absorb more than oak for example. And obviously dry wood will soak up a lot more oil than green timbers. You may want to over-estimate when ordering. The finish keeps indefinitely when stored properly with minimal air exposure.
VOC Levels: Max: 198.8 g/L
Clean Up: For spills, over spray, or to clean up brushes, use our Pure Citrus Solvent or other solvent (Turpentine, Mineral Spirits, etc.).
