Hello, I would like to talk I little bit about what goes into CIRANOVA Hardwaxoil.
CIRANOVA Hardwaxoil Full Solid is hard yet flexible, waterproof and impervious to alcohol and many food acids. As a penetrating oil, it allows wood to continue its aging process and to develop its patina. The wood’s rich natural color is enhanced while the wood is nurtured with Hardwaxoil Full Solid. A floor, a piece of furniture, or any other wood object finished with Hardwaxoil Full Solid will never have to be stripped again. Any sign of wear disappears when a thin “maintenance” coat of oil is rubbed in. The maintenance coats, rather than cause a build-up, actually improve the patina as they protect and preserve the wood. Ultimately, any project finished with our CIRANOVA Hardwaxoil Full Solid becomes more beautiful with time.
We use the purest raw materials available, reducing the environmental impact and minimizing a finisher’s exposure to toxic fumes and chemicals. CIRANOVA Hardwaxoil Full Solid is both, finisher-friendly and environmentally responsible.
Microscopic examination of the coat shows a three-dimensional molecular locking of the finish into the wood fibers. One Full Solid coat creates a durable finish that bonds completely to the wood as if it were. However, we always advise to apply a coat of maintenance oil over any pigmented coat of Full Solid, to prevent the wearing off of color in high traffic areas. CIRANOVA Hardwaxoil Full Solid does not deteriorate over time. The molecular locking of the finish into the wood remains stable . The bonding also gives flexibility to the surface, making it capable of withstanding wear and tear.
CIRANOVA Hardwaxoil Full Solid also contributes to the ease of maintaining an oiled finish. When a piece of wood is routinely treated with CIRANOVA FLOORING SOAP and periodically oiled with CIRANOVA MAINTENANCE OIL, after cleaning with the Intensive cleaner, molecules in the fresh coat bond with those in the existing finish, forming a new, smooth uninterrupted surface.
