We will answer some common questions including:

How Do You Prepare the Wood for Rubio Monocoat Finishing?

On untreated wood, sand until scratch-free without over-polishing the surface. You will want to sand the surface to a minimum of 120 grit, but do not sand past 220 grit, or the Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus 2C (also known as RMC Oil) will not adhere to the wood fibers properly.

Thoroughly clean the surface to ensure there are no wood particles or dust particles remaining. You will want to start removing the dust with a vacuum cleaner and remove the remaining dust particles using Rubio Monocoat Cleaner when possible for best results. Open wood pores guarantee a long-lasting finish and are essential for the absorption of the oil.

If you don't have the cleaner handy, we strongly recommend moistening the surface evenly with water (water popping) instead. 

Rubio Monocoat Instructions

1. Mixing Instructions

The combination of the oil (Part A) and the accelerator (Part B) ensures a quick dry, quick cure, and superior protection. You will carefully mix the two components (1 to 2 minutes) with a ratio of approximately 3 units A to 1 unit B.

Rubio Monocoat can be used with or without the accelerator.

2. Applying Rubio Monocoat

Once the cleaned surface is dry, spread out a small quantity of Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus 2C. We find this oil spreader the perfect applicator for this purpose.
