That's where the Junckers Rustic Oil 5L comes in.
Reasons To Invest In The Junckers Rustic Oil 5L
1. Increased wear resistance
The Junckers Rustic Oil 5L doesn’t just sit on the surface forming a film. It penetrates into the wood, with the hardening urethane oil strengthening the fibres themselves, enhancing their wear and abradability attributes. You can use it a primer onto which top coats will be applied, or as the finish itself, to protect your floor and enhance its ability to withstand the wear and tear of everyday life. These attacks come from aspects like the dirt and dust particles being ground against the wood surface as people walk about, those items occasionally getting dropped, all through to solar radiation plus those drink spills that risk seeping into the wood structure. You want to ensure that your floor is protected around the clock. Since the oil has penetrated the fibers, it becomes part of the board, moving with it through the expansions and contractions. This prevents joint cracking. The Junckers Rustic Oil 5L enables you to avoid water damage and increases the wood’s stain resistance, further keeping it looking elegant for longer.
2. Accents the character of the wood
You want a floor that's pleasing to the eyes, and that enhances the interior decor. The Junckers Rustic Oil 5L enables you to achieve that, according to your specific taste. There are two broad categories to choose from: Clear and Colour. Each dries to a transparent finish, the former bearing the hue of the underlying wood, the latter giving the surface the selected tone. The Colour Junckers Rustic Oil 5L ranges from White, Black, Walnut, SmoothRum, RawSugar, and DarkCoco, all through to WildHazel, Driftwod Grey, Anthracite Grey/SpicyPepper, Mahogany/SylvaRed, and Nut/SylvaKet. Your freedom of choice doesn’t end there. You can go further to combine the Clear and Colour Junckers Rustic Oil 5L, and even thereafter add any of the Junckers water-based lacquers to the surface. You have plenty of room to set up the decor you desire for your establishment.
3. Easy application
Since the Junckers Rustic Oil 5L is flexible, the mode of approach you use when applying it depends on the intended purpose. Whichever the case, always ensure that the floor is clean and dry prior to application, and that the Junckers Rustic Oil 5L has been thoroughly stirred in its container. Different types of tools can be used for the application, such as brushes, rollers, cloths, or a lambswool applicator, with a nylon scouring pad. When using it as a primer, you can moisten the surface of the bare wood first with a damp cloth and let it dry for 10-15 minutes, in order to enhance the quality of the results. When using it to finish the surface, remember to first lightly sand the wood using fine sandpaper of grit 180-220.

The surface onto which the Junckers Rustic Oil 5L has been applied will be ready to use after 24 hours.

Tips For Using The Junckers Rustic Oil 5L
· Allow sufficient drying time in between subsequent coat applications. When priming the untreated and sanded wood surfaces, this should be up to 30 minutes. When you want to use the Colour or Clear Junckers Rustic Oil 5L to finish the surface, the existing treatment that had already been applied should be allowed 16-24 hours to dry. For those who opt to add Junckers lacquers onto the surface, the drying time in between the lacquer coats is around 4 hours.
· After full saturation has been achieved (the wood surface can’t absorb any more product), remove the excess. You don’t want any unabsorbed and dried oil leaving behind glossy spots.
· When working on floors, a buffing machine whose pad has been covered with a clean cloth will come in handy in spreading the Junckers Rustic Oil 5L, and removing the surplus from the surface.
· Clean the tools used for the application using white spirit.
