Liberon Quick Drying Tung Oil is highly resistant to water, alcohol and food acids. Providing a hard wearing finish it is ideal for surfaces such as kitchen worktops, tables and all high quality interior and exterior wood. With each coat drying in just 4 hours, items such as worktops, salad bowls, chopping boards, furniture and other items in regular use can be quickly protected and brought back in to use. Being a penetrating oil it allows the wood to age gracefully and develop a natural patina.
Ensure the wood surface is bare: remove any wax finishes with Liberon Wax and Polish Remover and any varnish or oil finishes with Liberon fine Wood Stripper. Clean, dry and ensure the surface is dust free.
Apply Quick Drying Tung Oil using a brush or lint-free cotton cloth. Allow the oil to penetrate for 20 minutes then wipe off the excess oil using a clean lint-free cloth. Allow to dry for 4 hours. Apply further coats of Quick Drying Tung Oil as above, we recommend at least 4 coats on most woods. To check the surface is protected drop some water onto the wood and if the water beads, the surface is sealed. Allow 24 hours for the final coat to dry. for best results gently rub with Liberon Ultra fine Steel Wool (0000) between coats. Furniture items may be finished with Liberon Wax Polish Black Bison for an improved lustre.
Important: Oil finishes bring out the natural colours of timber. A wet surface will be an indication of the final colour. Always test product on a spare surface or inconspicuous area for colour, compatibility and end result.
