Flexible Finish in Detail

Want to know more about Oils and Wax for your timber flooring? Here's details you might want to know before making a decision!

General Info

  • Most penetrating finishes are non-toxic and hypo-allergenic.

  • There are no issues with edge bonding, cracking.

  • Minor repairs and scratch masking can be made without sanding the floor again.

Finish sheen level-

Penetrating oils are absorbed into the fibres and thus generally results in matt/ satin finishes.

Finish feel-

If you touch the timber, since it is a soft finish, the timber grain and textures will be felt to the touch.


So what’s my Options?


Rubio Monocoat

An all-natural oil wood floor finish. VOC free and completely non-toxic product of extraordinary durability.

Available colour ranges more than 30 colour finishes and can be applied in a single coating.

  • All monocoats are easily maintained and provide a subtle lustre that reveals and complements, rather than conceals, the natural timber grain and patina in the wood.

  • Monocoat finishes adheres with the first microns of wood by molecular bonding. As a result, Monocoat Natural Oil can cover an average 400 sq. ft. of floor per litre. In addition, because of molecular bonding, no surface film can form, and no variable saturation can occur. Not only is a second coat not required, the finished wood will not accept a second coat. The same action protects against overlaps and colour variance and causes the process to complete in one coat.

  • Monocoat natural oil finish bonding technology allows local touch up of damaged areas or scratches, because only the free wood fibres will take the touch-up coating. The finished margins next to the scratched or damaged area will not accept new coats. After 10 minutes, just wipe away superfluous oil. There is no overlapping or additional density build-up at the margins.

  • A distinguishing feature of Synteko Natural compared to other penetrating surface oils is that it is close to 100% solids. This results in a very high quality floor finish but also environmentally friendly compared to other floor finish types.
