Wooden Surface Preparation
Wood must be dry (moisture content below 12 %), solid, able to absorb, clean, free of resin and dust.
Brush large-pored wood such as oak, ash, chestnut, elm, mahogany or teak carefully, to clean pore
grooves. Sand furniture gradually up to 240 grain, for oak use 180 grain.
Depending on surface requirements and absorbency: Apply 1 to 3 thin coats, until a surface layer has
developed. Remove excess oil approximately 3 minutes after applying the first coat with a lint-free
cloth, otherwise an uneven shiny surface might develop. Sand with 400 grain between the 1st and 2nd
applications. Remove 2nd coat 3 minutes after application, sanding before the application of the 3rd
coat is not necessary. Let dry. Remove 3rd coat 3 minutes after application as well. Between the
applications of the individual coats, let dry for at least 16 hours.
Maintenance should be carried out according to usage. As a rule 1 — 2 times annually. Prepare the
surface with 280 — 320 grain, then rub or polish a thin coat of KUNOS Countertop Oil No. 243. Clean
with a damp cloth with TRENA pH-Neutral Cleaner No. 556 diluted in water.
Stir thoroughly before use. Remove possible skin formed on surface. Test coat is recommended.
The open time during the application can be extended by adding up to 10% of SVALOS Thinner No.
On oak and other wood with incompatibilities such as tannic acid or dyes, or on wood that has been
sanded, stripped, pre-treated, or stained, discoloration is possible and will show up within one week
of application date. Please note that KUNOS No. 243 is not suitable as a sealant on strained wood.
For glued crosscut wood, observe a treated test area for two days before completing application, as
certain adhesives may dissolve. Adhesives and glues have to be completely dry before treating with
