Instructions

An overview of instructions. Please consult the TDS for complete product information.

Application

Furniture, stairs & countertops

  1. Sand the surface properly. Finish sanding with 100-150 grit. Note: The color intensity depends on sanding, wood species, water popping, etc... Note: When refinishing, sand all residue from previously applied non-Rubio Monocoat finish treatments (e.g., polyurethane, oil, wax, etc.) down to bare wood.
  2. Vacuum thoroughly, remove residual sanding dust using Raw Wood Cleaner and wait until the surface is completely dry before applying Oil Plus 2C. Refer to the Raw Wood Cleaner TDS before.
  3. Stir the A component until a homogenous mixture is obtained. Carefully mix the two components (1 to 2 minutes) with a ratio of about 3 units A to 1 unit B.
  4. Spreadout a small quantity of Oil Plus 2C using the Applicator Set, and work the oil into the wood surface. Work in manageable zones. *Alternative spatula method: Evenly spread Oil Plus 2C with a plastic spreader, or a small squeegee. Then, use a Rubio Monocoat applicator pad to work the oil into the surface. Work in manageable zones. NOTE: Apply Oil Plus 2C to ceilings, walls, and vertical surfaces using a brush and spread with the Rubio Monocoat Applicator Pad(s).
  5. Allow the applied oil to react with the wood for at least 5 minutes, during that time periodically work the oiled surface with the applicator pad to redistribute the applied oil and work it into the wood surface. Start wiping excess oil away around 15 minutes from applying it using a clean terry cloth. Make sure all excess oil has been removed within 30 minutes! The surface should feel dry to the touch upon completion. NOTE: To ensure that wood species with high absorbency (e.g., walnut, cherry, pine, cedar, or redwood) are well-oiled, it's important to work the oil into the wood thoroughly and allow additional time to fully penetrate before wiping off excess oil.

Floors

  1. Sand the surface following National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) guidelines. Finish sanding with 100-120 grit mesh screen. When finished sanding, the wood surface should NOT exhibit a shiny/polished surface. NOTE: The colour intensity depends on sanding, wood species, water popping, etc... NOTE: When refinishing, sand any residue from previously applied non-Rubio Monocoat finish treatments (e.g., polyurethane, oil, wax, etc) down to bare wood.
  2.  Vacuum thoroughly, remove residual sanding dust using Raw Wood Cleaner and wait until the surface is completely dry before applying Oil Plus 2C. Refer to the Raw Wood Cleaner TDS before use.
  3. Stir the the A Component thoroughly until a consistent colour mixture is obtained. Then, carefully mix the two components together (1 - 2 minutes) at a ratio of about 3 units A to 1 unit B.
  4.  Work in zones of 50-100 SF (5-10 m²). Start each zone by manually applying the oil around the perimeter using a Rubio Monocoat Red Applicator Pad. Liberally apply patches of Oil Plus 2C every other 20 inches to the field of the floor using a brush. Work the oil in using a buffer outfitted with a red buffer pad following the installation length of the boards. Allow the applied oil to react with the wood for at least 5 minutes. During the reaction time, continue to work the oiled surface with the red applicator pad with the buffer to further redistribute the applied oil and work it into the wood surface. *Alternative trowel method: Spread the Oil Plus 2C mixture out with a stainless trowel in zones which can be completed in 30 minutes. Work the applied oil in with a buffer outfitted with a red buffer pad
  5. Start buffing excess oil away around 15 minutes from applying it using a clean white buffer pad. Use a cloth around the perimeter of the room and where the buffer can not reach to remove excess oil. Make sure all excess oil has been removed with the white pad within 30 minutes from the start of oiling each section! Change the white pads as needed. The surface of the oiled area should feel dry to the touch when this step is completed. NOTE: Continue the instructions outlined in steps 4 and 5 to oil the remaining zones of the floor.
  6.  Once all zones in one room have been oiled, immediately buff the oiled area again with a clean white pad under the buffer to assure an evenly oiled and wiped surface. The surface should now be dry to the touch. NOTE: In very large spaces divide these final buff zones up in smaller section of approximately 300-400 SF.

Cleaning

Clean the surface using Rubio Monocoat Soap or Surface Care Spray. Do not use common over the counter cleaners, as they can damage the surface.

Maintenance

Periodic maintenance of Oil Plus 2C should be performed using Rubio Monocoat Renew. Refer to the Renew TDS before use.

Repair and renovation

If the Oil Plus 2C treated surface shows excessive wear and tear, or needs a color repair, maintain with Oil Plus 2C in the original color.

  1. Use Universal Soap or Surface Care Spray to clean the wooden surface until it is free of dirt. For stubborn stains, repeat the cleaning process (you may use a white non-abrasive pad to help remove stubborn dirt). Use Tannin Remover for dark discolored spots in the wood. Refer to the Tannin Remover TDS before use.
  2. To remove dissolved dirt, use a damp cloth or mop with clean water. After cleaning, let the surface dry completely. This usually takes around 30 minutes in a room with a temperature of 68°F (20°C) and good ventilation. NOTE: If the wood surface is severely damaged or neglected, abrade the surface lightly with a maroon pad or use the same abrasive grit as you initially finished your wooden surface with. Please consult a professional if necessary.
  3. Furniture - Refer to STEP 3 of the corresponding furniture, stairs, and countertops section for oil application instructions. Follow through to STEP 5. Flooring - Refer to STEP 3 of the corresponding flooring section for oil application instructions. Follow through to STEP 6.

Very high temperatures may shorten the working time and dry time, work in smaller zones if needed.

Low temperatures increase the amount of time needed for a molecular bond between the oil and the wood to occur. Allow more time for the oil to react with the wood before removing excess oil. Low temperatures also lengthen the dry and cure time. Avoid applying the oil in cold temperatures.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Oil Plus 2C safe to use on cutting boards?

We do not recommend using Oil Plus 2C on cutting boards or butcher blocks that will be used for cutting.

Rubio Monocoat oil forms a molecular bond with the topmost microns of the wood. A knife can cut deeper than the product penetrates, leaving raw wood exposed and susceptible to mold and/or bacteria growth.

However, as our product is Food Contact Compliant, it is acceptable to use on charcuterie and serving boards.

Is Oil Plus 2C food safe?

Technically, this asks if the product is safe to ingest, but we understand what you're getting at.

While we do not recommend ingesting our products, it can be safely used on a food contact surface. Testing on Oil Plus 2C from an independent testing institute show Food Contact Compliance.

Is Oil Plus 2C really 0% VOC?

Yes. View our certifications.

How can I add more sheen?

There are 2 options to increase the sheen on a surface finished with Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus 2C.

SheenPlus - Increases the sheen level to a satin.

Universal Maintenance Oil - Increases the sheen level by 6-8% to a low satin.

How long does Rubio Monocoat last?

A lifetime with proper maintenance. We would expect the first maintenance to be needed somewhere between 2 and 5 years depending on wear.

Can I cover the floors after they have been finished with Oil Plus 2C oil?

Yes, wood floors finished with Oil Plus 2C can be covered with a non-staining construction paper 48 hours after application.

Please remember:

• Never tape directly to the floor.

• Only tape paper to paper.

• Covering the floor will extend the cure time.

How soon can you apply Oil Plus 2C after water-popping?

Once the surface is dry. We recommend using a moisture meter to be sure.

Does Oil Plus 2C work on all species?

Yes.

On exotic and oily species, you must clean with Raw Wood Cleaner prior to applying Oil Plus 2C

Does Rubio Monocoat require a topcoat?

No.

Can I use Oil Plus 2C over our existing finish?

No, Oil Plus 2C must come in contact with raw cellulose in order to properly work.

Can I put lacquer or poly over Oil Plus 2C finish?

We cannot guarantee adhesion, so you must discuss this with the poly or lacquer manufacturer.

Is Oil Plus 2C recommended for exterior?

No, we recommend Hybrid Wood Protector or WoodCream for exterior applications.

Do I have to use multiple coats for certain species of wood?

Because the product will not bond to itself, multiple coats are not needed. On softer species like walnut, a second application may be necessary to make sure that all areas have fully had the opportunity to react with the oil.

Do you have a clear in Oil Plus 2C?

Pure is our unpigmented color. As all oils, it will warm/richen the wood.

The color Natural does contain a light colored pigment.
