WAX-OIL- natural safety
For some time wax-oils have been making a sensation in salons, or more precisely - on their floors. It is a mixture of oils and waxes which, thanks to the appropriate hardeners, gives a visual effect of the oil finishing, smoothness of the wax and hardness of the varnish. It is also an ideal option for protecting furniture.
Wax-oil - protective properties
After application of wax-oil, the surface becomes extremely durable, resistant to dirt and water. When a drop of water falls on such a surface, it does not spread and does not sink into it because the oil creates a hydrophobic barrier.
While the oil protects the wood from the inside, the hard wax creates a resistant film on the outside, comparable to varnish. You can safely put hard objects or hot dishes on such surface.
The main advantage of wax-oil in comparison to varnish is its influence on the microclimate at home. Wood protected with a wax-oil provides a healthy environment and is an actively breathing surface. It is easier to look after and renew.
Wax-oil - visual effects
Wax-oil like no other protective product emphasizes the grain and natural color of the wood. Wax makes the wood surface silky and pleasant to the touch.
In the colorless version, the wood gains a deep, slightly darker shade. When we use a coloring wax-oil, we can properly implement warm or cold pigments, changing the nature of wood and adjusting it to the colors prevailing at your home. The grain and natural contrasts between the soft and hard wood fragments will still be visible.
Wax-oils are available in a colorless and colored version. You can go over the available colors in this guide.
