Choosing the Right Rubio Monocoat Oil
Rubio Monocoat 2C Oil contains two components: Part A - Oil and Part B - Accelerator.
2C Oil is recommended for high traffic/usage areas such as, flooring, countertops and high use or commercially used furniture and fixtures. The dry time of 2C Oil is 36 hours. It will become water-resistant in 7 days.
Once Part A and Part B are mixed, the oil will only be usable for 6–7 hours. After that time, the oil will no longer be usable and will need to be discarded.
Oil Plus 2C Part A Oil has an unlimited pot life. It can be reactivated by using Part A Oil on the existing Part A Oil on the wood's surface. This makes it more desirable for use on vertical surfaces such as: beams, fixtures and some furniture. Part A is also used for creating a color sample. The accelerator (Part B) does not alter the color of the oil. Oil Plus A has a dry time of 36 hours and will be water-resistant in 21 days. The Part A Oil may be resealed after use. It has a shelf life of 2–3 years.
