Linseed Oil Varnish is the traditional and long proven surface treatment for many kinds of interior wood finishes.

Shake product briefly before application.
Apply one or two coats of Kreidezeit Linseed Oil Varnish, allowing the first coat to dry before applying the second. The substrate may require sanding before applying the second coat.
The product must not be poured onto surfaces!
Clean and dust down untreated substrates.
To ensure good penetration, it is recommended to dilute the product with at least 20% Balsamic Turpentine for the first coat on very dense, poorly-absorbent and tannin-rich wood (such as oak).
Please note: wood in outdoor areas should be fitted with non-rusting metal screws and fittings, otherwise dark stains may appear after applying oil.
Processing and drying temperatures: at least 10°C for a minimum of 48 hours.
- First coat
Apply Kreidezeit Linseed Oil Varnish evenly with a brush, short-pile roller, cloth or sponge. After 10-20 minutes, thoroughly wipe the entire treated area with a dry, lint-free cloth until the surface has a uniform satin appearance.
Ensure that all un-absorbed oil has been completely removed, as otherwise shiny or sticky patches may remain. Kreidezeit Linseed Oil Varnish must fully penetrate into the wood. It must not form a layer on the wood.
- Re-sanding between coats (optional)
Re-sanding between coats is only required if the surface has dried rough, for example if wood fibres have dried proud of the surface. Use sand paper in the direction of the grain.
Dust down thoroughly after sanding.
- Second coat (optional)
A second coat is required if the product is applied indoors on its own or if subsequently using Stand Oil Paint on highly absorbent or weathered wood. Repeat as per the first coat.
- Subsequent coats
For subsequent coats, please see the product information on Stand Oil Paint or Wood Lazure.
- Wax treatment
Oiled surfaces generally do not require wax treatment. To improve the gloss, you can finish with Carnauba Wax Emulsion after at least 48 hours. To do this, dilute 1 part emulsion with 2 parts water.
Apply evenly and thinly, allow to dry and polish as needed.
