Linea Blue Oils
Oil has a strong, penetrating effect on wood and varies according to the structure of the substrate. How the wood has been prepared has a dramatic effect on the amount of oil the wood absorbs. A solid but unevenly grown piece of wood will demonstrate very different absorption characteristics and may give the oiled surface a blotchy appearance. The surface must be dried and sanded again before the next layer of oil can be applied. Oil can be lightly tinted to function both as a stain and surface protection. Here, a smoothly sanded surface with consistent absorption characteristics is critical.
Solvent-free oils are ideal for the industrial finishing of pine and other wood flooring. All oiled surfaces require periodic after-treatment to retain their protective properties.
