Treatex Hardwax Oil Natural can be used as a base coat which is designed to neutralise the colour change caused by applying Treatex Hardwax Oil Clear. To change the appearance of light coloured timbers such as oak as little as possible, brush (not roller) on a thin coat of Treatex Hardwax Oil Natural on to unfinished timber, before sealing with clear Treatex Hardwax Oil. Treatex Hardwax Oil Natural should not be used as a base coat on darker coloured timbers.
On light coloured timbers such as oak, two coats of Treatex Hardwax Oil Clear will warm the colour of the wood. If you prefer to change the appearance of light coloured timbers as little as possible, apply a thin base coat of Treatex Hardwax Oil Natural before sealing with Treatex Hardwax Oil Clear. Our Natural Hardwax Oil contains a small amount of white pigment which neutralises the warming effect which is seen when our Clear Hardwax Oil is applied on its own.
