New wood oil can be over-coated with lacquers
A new Bona wood floor oil, Craft Oil 2K, which delivers amazing and unique benefits to contractors and their customers, has been introduced by FloorworX. Developed as part of Bona’s existing oil system, this versatile, two-component treatment can be used on its own or combined with the system’s tone treatments and hard wax oil.
However, a significant benefit is that it can also be over-coated with all Bona Traffic lacquers, when required, to provide very high surface durability and greater resistance to dirt. This extends its use into areas such as airports and other public spaces that are heavily trafficked and require more frequent cleaning and maintenance. These lacquers not only enhance durability, but also retain the look and feel of an oiled floor. Alternatively, Bona Traffic HD lacquer can be applied as the top coat for ultimate durability.
A further key benefit is its exceptionally long pot life and open time – a significant advantage when treating large areas. Drying time is still very short however, and in this respect Bona Craft Oil 2K performs exceptionally well. The Neutral version dries and is ready for light use in just eight hours while the five intermixable coloured versions take around 12 hours to dry.
The modified, plant-based oil formula, combined with its hardener, delivers a high degree of saturation and it offers high resistance to water and chemicals, so a very resilient surface can be achieved even without the addition of a lacquer coat. As with any oiled surface, floors treated with Bona Craft Oil 2K are spot repairable. Maintenance is also problem free; in addition to regular sweeping or vacuuming, simply remove any localised dirt with a Bona Spray Mop. Maintenance oiling will only be required every two or three years in homes and two or three times per year – or as required – in public areas.
Bona Craft Oil 2K works well on almost all wood species – including tricky ones such as Cherry and Walnut. In line with all Bona’s treatments, care has been taken to develop a product that is as safe and clean to work with as possible. Low solvent Bona Craft Oil 2K has passed the requirements for application on children’s toys and is also approved by the Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik (DIBt) as a low emission, safe building product.
