Instructions for use

STEP 1 Sand surface without making scratches and vacuum.

STEP 2 Apply Pre-Aging to the surface using a painters tray and the Rubio Monocoat Microber Bristle Pad. For edges/corners: apply with a cut in pad then smooth the Pre-Aging using a white pad. Work along the length of the boards, in widths of 10-15 inches. Avoid forming puddles.

STEP 3 Allow to dry for about 24 hours and ensure sufficient ventilation.

TIP: It is perfectly normal for the surface to dry in ‘spots’ that follow the grain pattern. As long as the surface still looks ‘spotted’, it is not dry yet.

STEP 4 After drying (approx. 24 hours if there is sucient ventilation), break the raised wood fibres using a buffer with a red pad. Vacuum and finish with a colour from the Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus 2C range. No buffing needed.

Good stuff

Didn’t expect it to be so dark but I can’t say I’m disappointed, Rubio always comes in handy. Worth every dollar
