Application

Application couldn’t be easier! Simply apply in a circular motion using a small piece of cloth, rag, or kitchen towel. Apply the first coat generously to evenly coat the surface. A porous timber may absorb the first coat, so repeat if necessary (2 coats will usually have better results, so its always recommended).  Allow the oil to sit for 30 minutes before removing excess with a clean cloth. For a higher sheen finish, leave the oil on for up to 24 hours before removing the excess, this will allow the oil dry more, resulting in a harder finish that will buff nicely.

Tung oil can be thinned with different solvents to acquire different results. Adding solvents to the oil in a ratio up to 1:1 will add cleaning & dissolving properties to the oil, making it a great reviver for old furniture, removing dirt and moisturising the timber in 1 quick and easy application.

More About Tung Oil 

Tung oil or China wood oil is a drying oil obtained by pressing the seed from the nut of the Tung tree. Tung oil hardens upon exposure to air, resulting in a coating that is transparent and has a deep, almost wet look. The oil and its use are believed to have originated in ancient China and appear in the writings of Confucius from about 400 BC.

CAUTION: CONTAINS TREE NUTS
