Tung oil based finish for interior wood floors, doors, trim, and other wood surfaces.
Waterlox Tung oil products penetrate much better than polyurethane in order to seal wood fibers beneath the surface. Tung oil finishes are the most durable of all wood finishes and greatly enhance the natural beauty of wood. Since Tung Oil finishes retain a certain amount of elasticity almost indefinitely, they will not cloud, crack or become brittle. Scratches are easily repaired; no sanding is necessary; just re-apply finish to a clean surface. Unlike raw Tung Oil, Waterlox is polymerized with a resin that creates an extremely durable hard surface.
Unlike urethane, Tung oil products form a protective finish that won’t chip, peel, crack or wrinkle. Resists alcohol, hot liquids, stain, and household chemicals. Give wood a rich, hand-rubbed appearance by enhancing the grain.Easy to apply and use. Easy to maintain surfaces with mild detergent and water – no special cleaning process required.
Medium Sheen (50-55° Gloss Level) 26% Solids for maximum penetration; no thinning necessary Applies easily with a lambswool applicator (floors), China bristle brush, roller, cloth or spray. Sanding is not necessary between coats for adhesion purposes. Non-Toxic when dry.
Coverage: 500 square feet per gallon per coat
Use as a sealer only or in multiple coats (3-4 total, depending on species of wood) as a sealer and finish. Excellent for use as a primer, tie-coat or paint additive to improve adhesion. Great choice for reclaimed lumber. Exceptional adhesion to oily, dense, exotic woods like teak, rosewood and Ipe. Use on interior wood surfaces including floors, windows, doors, cabinetry, woodwork, tables, furniture, bar tops, picture frames, fly fishing rods, gun stocks, and various woodworking projects. Use on porous interior surfaces such as slate, brick, stone, tile, linoleum or cement to seal and prevent chalking and dusting.
For exterior projects as a sealer only, use 2 coats to prime, followed by 1 or 2 coats of Marine Finish.
