High Solid single-coat hard oil to protect and stain wood floors and woodwork.
- Single-coat Solid'Oil™ hard oil impregnates, stains and protects wooden floors in a single coat.
- Offering high resistance, it creates an interactive mesh on contact with the wood that provides in-depth nourishment and protection.
- The natural appearance of the wood is enhanced, making it easy to maintain.
- Available in ten base shades, Solid'Oil™ can be mixed to create an infinite variety of shades, from natural to deep black, with many wood tones and a wide range of greys in between.
- Solid'Oil™ is ready to use but can be paired with a specific hardener to optimise drying and durability.
- Also available in a natural version: 100% Solid Content - 100% Vegetable Oils to fully protect the surface of the wood.
- 30 to 35 sqm per litre per coat
- Before sanding/recoating: around 12 hours with hardener
- 1 Litre
- 2.5 Litres
Slip-resistant product according to DIN-Standard DIN 51 130-R10
- Sand a new or old wood floor until smooth. The wood to be impregnated must be sanded back (24 or 26 grain), refined with 50 or 60 grain, then finished with 100 or 120 grain. Brushed woods will produce more intense shades than smooth woods.
- Blanchon Solid'Oil is ready to use and must not be diluted. To optimise drying and durability, a 20% hardener to 100% Solid’Oil can be added. Preservation time of the mixture: 1 hr 30 mins. It is highly recommended that you use the Natural version with the hardener.
- Shake the container well before use.
- The wood floor should not be impregnated when the temperature is below 12°C. Use only in well-ventilated areas. Plants and aquariums should not be left in contact with solvent vapours.
- Apply one coat of Solid'Oil using a brush, roller (short-haired) or spatula, in the direct of the wood. Using the spatula is recommended for the natural version.
- Buff slowly with a buffing machine fitted with a beige pad. This will make the applied coat uniform and enable you to obtain definitive colour and appearance of your wood floor.
- After finishing the work, an overall rapid buffing of the entire area (floor cleaning machine, new beige pad) will enable you to achieve a perfect finish.
- Solid'Oil is compatible with industrial roller coaters.
- On exotic woods, oily woods or wood flooring with coat deck joints, apply one coat of Prim’Oil to prevent extended drying times, which are inherent to these types of wood. Then apply Solid’Oil.
- On very absorbent woods, a second coat may be applied the following day using the same method.
- Approximately 4 hours should be left for dust-free drying - approx. 6 hours for Natural.
- The oiled surface should be regularly dusted using a broom or vacuum cleaner.
- The occasional mark or stain can be removed using a neutral detergent (well-wrung cloth or mop and never dripping)
- At least 15 days should be left for the first intervention, so that the Solid'Oil has time to thoroughly dry.
- Damp wiping with Blanchon Natural Soap for Oiled Wood, diluted at a ratio of 50 ml to 5 litres of water. Blanchon Lagoon can also be used for daily cleaning.
- Work on successive areas, regularly rinsing the microfibre mop or other equipment used. To avoid making the floor too wet, the equipment should be regularly wrung out.
- Blanchon Maintenance Oil can be applied onto a dust-free and clean oiled wood floor. Wipe with a clean and dry cotton cloth to obtain a buffed matt finish. Choose the Maintenance Oil shade that corresponds to the shade of Solid’Oil.
- This operation can be made easier and faster by using a cleaning machine with a beige pad (if the floor is very dirty, a red pad can be used to strengthen the mechanical cleaning).
- This process can be done whenever the oiled floor loses its matt finish.
- For wooden floors that are subject to heavy use, regular maintenance can be complimented by applying a general coat of Solid'Oil; followed up with a thorough buffing by hand or machine.
- The more regular and frequent the maintenance, the easier it becomes.
