Oil Plus 2C
We do not recommend using Oil Plus 2C on cutting boards or butcher blocks that will be used for cutting.
Rubio Monocoat oil forms a molecular bond with the topmost microns of the wood. A knife can cut deeper than the product penetrates, leaving raw wood exposed and susceptible to mold and/ or bacteria growth.
However, as our product is safe to use on wood surfaces it is acceptable to use on a charcuterie and serving boards.
Technically, this asks if the product is safe to ingest, but we understand what you're getting at.
While we do not recommend ingesting our products, it can be safely used on a food contact surface. We even have a Fit for Food certification from an independent testing institute.
We cannot guarantee adhesion, so you must discuss with the poly or lacquer manufacturer.
No, Oil Plus 2C must come in contact with raw cellulose in order to properly work.
Universal Maintenance Oil can be applied over Oil Plus 2C to increase the sheen level by 6-8%. Universal Maintenance Oil should not be applied to raw wood.
Because the product will not bond to itself, multiple coats are not needed. On softer species like walnut, a second application may be necessary to make sure that all areas have fully had the opportunity to react with the oil.
Once the surface is dry. We recommend using a moisture meter to be sure.
Yes, wood floors finished with Oil Plus 2C can be covered with a non-staining construction paper 48 hours after application.
- Never tape directly to the floor.
- Only tape paper to paper.
- Covering the floor will extend the cure time.
