Before using, test a small inconspicuous area with all products to be applied to ensure a satisfactory final finish and compatibility.

• For freshly laid wood, allow to acclimatise in the room for several days before treating. Moisture content should be below 15%.

• Previous coatings must be fully sanded back before application.

• Resinous deposits should be removed with a scraper and the surface degreased, with methylated spirits

• Repair cracks or open joints with a suitable wood filler

• For the best finish, sand first with a coarse (60-80) grit sandpaper moving to a finer (150-180) grit sandpaper to achieve a smooth but not overly polished surface on the wood.

• Remove any sanding dust thoroughly before application.

• If required, apply wood dye

• IMPORTANT! Test the colour and compatibility with any wood fillers or dyes on a scrap piece of wood before use.

Not suitable for use over barrier coatings, such as paints, varnishes, or lacquer. These must be removed completely either by sanding, heat gun or paint stripping. If choosing to use paint stripper, either Barrettine Paint Panther® or Peelaway® may be suitable.


• Ensure good ventilation is maintained during application and throughout the drying process.

• Ready to use, do not thin.

• Stir thoroughly before use.

• Apply in thin coats using either a short pile roller, good quality brush or lint free cloth. Over-application can reduce the finish quality and prolong drying time.

• On previously treated timber 1 coat is normally sufficient, maximum of 2 coats may be required if applying to fresh

• or previously untreated timber.

• Drying time approximately 6-8 hours under average climatic conditions (23oC, 50% humidity). Preferably allow to dry overnight. Variations in ambient conditions and substrate can affect drying times.

• On floors, suitable for light foot traffic approximately 16 hours after final coat.

• Avoid covering with rugs or carpets for approximately 10-14 days to allow curing process to fully complete.

Equipment Cleaning

• Clean brushes / rollers with Palatine Low Odiour White Spirit. immediately after use.

• If spilled, wipe off immediately with a cloth dampened with Palatine Low Odiour White Spirit.

Aftercare and Maintenance

Marks and scratches can be touched up without the requirement for sanding. Ensure areas to be repaired are clean and dry. To renovate large areas lightly sand with 120-150 grit sandpaper, remove dust and then apply a single, thin coat. Armourflex Hardwax Oil imparts a tough, resilient surface to the wood that resists typical daily knocks and scratches.

To help retain the best appearance a good level of general care is advised e.g., felt pads on the bottom of furniture, pet claws regularly clipped. Clean floors regularly with Armourflex Wood Floor Cleaner.

    First time using any hard wax oil, used it on a solid oak table and I’m very happy with the result and ease of application, Will have to see how it holds up over time.
