5 Reasons Why Rubio Monocoat 2C Oil is Worth the Investment

If you're a flooring contractor, woodworker or a homeowner looking for a superior finish on your hardwood floors or furniture that offers both durability and an environmentally friendly, no-VOC solution, then look no further than Rubio Monocoat 2C Oil. This advanced oil finishing system enhances wood's natural beauty, while also providing excellent protection against the wear and tear of every day life.  Not only is it an effective solution to protect your valuable flooring, but with its easy to apply and ease of maintenance makes it truly one of a kind! Keep reading to see five reasons why Rubio Monocoat 2C Oil is worth the investment.

1. Save Time, Use Less Product, Save Money

Applying a one-coat finish with Oil Plus 2C saves not only time but also money.  One coat application, high coverage, and fast cure-time mean less finish wasted and less time spent waiting for multiple coats to dry. For professionals, this not only cuts product consumption but also cuts down on job time, freeing up time for more projects and clients.

Protect wood floors in 3 easy steps. 1-Clean and prepare.  2 - Apply oil.  3 - Remove excess oil.

2. Reliability and Durability

Oil Plus 2C uses molecular bonding technology, providing rich color and reliable protection against wear, water, and heat in just one coat. Unlike standard wood finishes that provide a layer of protection on top of the wood, Oil Plus 2C provides a one of a kind molecular bond that forms between cellulose wood fibers and the oil, protecting and enhancing wood surfaces uniformly without creating overlaps or starting lines.  And best of all, it only takes ONE easy to apply coat!

3. Maintenance Made Easy

Unlike traditional wood stains and finishes, repairs and maintenance are a breeze for floors that have been finished with Oil Plus 2C. There is no need for extensive sanding for repairs of scratches or other flooring repair.  Touch-ups and repairs can all be done with a quick sanding and local application of Oil Plus 2C. When your floors lose their luster, an application of Rubio Monocoat Renew  will quickly revitalize the finish and add a matte protection.  If you are looking for more sheen, then a coat of Rubio Monocoat Universal Maintenance Oil will do the trick.  For day to day cleaning, choose Rubio Monocoat Soap.  For more information on the routine maintenance and cleaning of your Rubio Monocoat finished floors, please check out our cleaning and maintenance guide.
