Application Information

  • Mylands Liquid Floor Wax should be applied to a previously sealed floor

  • Liquid Floor Wax may be applied by brush, roller or floor mop
  • Apply an even coat across the whole floor and allow to dry for 1 – 2 hours depending on temperature
  • When adequately dry, the wax will have a dull sheen and may then be buffed using a polishing machine, wax brush or coarse cloth.
  • Any wax which comes into contact with other substrates, such aspainted skirting boards, should be removed quickly with White Spirit. Clean equipment with White Spirit 09 899 9262

Teak Oil

A nourishing oil finish for interior and exterior timber with a satin sheen.

Application Information

  • Teak Oil may be used on new or aged timber
  • Always test Teak Oil on an off-cut of timber or an inconspicuous area of furniture to check colour and finish is as desired before oiling the whole article
  • If the timber has been previously coated, remove the old coating with either Mylands Special De-waxing solution (for wax finishes) or paint and varnish remover (for lacquer finishes)
  • Clean, dry and sand the timber – ensuring all dust is removed
  • Teak Oil may be applied using a clean, white, lint-free cotton cloth or brush
  • Work the oil well into the wood and leave for up to 15 minutes before wiping off surplus with a clean lint-free cloth. Failure to wipe off surplus will prevent penetration of subsequent coats and leave a sticky surface – if surface does become sticky, remove stickiness with White Spirit, 09 899 9262, and allow to dry before proceeding
  • Leave for a 24 hours and repeat the process for the remaining coats
  • The minimum number of coats recommended is three, but more may be required depending on the condition and absorbency of the substrate. A light rub over with 0000 grade wire wool or fine abrasive paper between coats will improve smoothness and feel of the finish
  • Use abrasive paper on exterior timber.
  • Wash brushes immediately after use – before the oil dries. Use White Spirit, 09 899 9262
  • Allow 24 hours at 20°C between coats
