Sauna oil is made from linseed oil and natural resins. Sauna oil leaves a durable and dirt-repellent surface on a sauna bench, which is easy to keep clean. Oiled surfaces are resistant to heat, water, and sweat. Sauna oil brings out the grain of the wood and provides a transparent surface. Consumption for planed surfaces is between eight to ten litres per square metre.
Areas of application: For finishing sauna benches and sauna rooms.
Ingredients: Linseed oil; natural resin, pine turpentine
Pre-treatment: It is important that the wood material that is to be treated is dry, with a maximum wood moisture level that is below 21% and a relative air humidity that is below 80%.
Clean any old treatable surfaces of any dirt, mould, and removable materials. Prime the surface with Ecobase.
Instructions for use: No diluting required. Mix carefully before and during application. Apply the material in thin layers with a brush or piece of cloth and allow it to be absorbed. Excess material that is no longer being absorbed can be wiped off if necessary. Between one and two finishing layers will be required, depending on the quality of the wooden surface. Sauna oil is not suitable for varnished or painted surfaces. Its use for any other purpose or contrary to the advice listed here is not recommended.
Drying time: Thinly brushed, between one to seven days, depending on the substrate and weather conditions.
