Kreidezeit Multi Purpose Wax is made out of natural beeswax, free of residues. The beehives of our suppliers are not treated chemicaly against the Varroa mites. The beeswax is molten and cleaned. Mixed with linseed oil varnish and stand oils, the result is a solventfree treatment for wooden surfaces. The term "wax" is not really defined. Most people associate something natural with the word wax, but that is not always true. The waxes sold nowadays are artificial and might contain a certain contingent of natural wax.
APPLICATION For wood untreated or primed with natural oils in the interior. Especially suitable for furniture, doors and wood panelling. Applied thinly the Multi Purpose Wax is also suitable to care for lazured surfaces. Not suitable for floorings.
- Free of solvents
- Easy to use
- Dirt- and water repellent
- Silky shine
Multi Purpose Wax is applied thin and evenly with a lint-free cloth, 1 or 2 times according to the absorbency of the surface. Avoid surpluses or wipe off with a lint-free cloth. Polishing the dried surface with a horsehair brush gives a silky shine. Application temperature at least 10°C.
TINTING The wax can be tinted with all Kreidezeit earthand mineral- and Spinel pigments. For tinting, mix a little bit of Multi Purpose Wax with the whole amount of the chosen pigments to a paste, e.g. with a spatula on a glass plate. Add this paste to the Multi Purpose Wax and mix well. We recommend a pigment contingent of up to 25 %. The higher the pigment contingent, the more opaque is the wax.
TIPS Application of Multi Purpose Wax on large surfaces can be quite exhausting and it can be impossible to wipe off surpluses from rough wooden surfaces. In these cases we recommend to dilute the Multi Purpose Wax in a ratio of 1:1 with Gum Turpentine Oil. Apply thin and evenly with a soft paintbrush, dries without polishing. Polish the dry Multi Purpose Wax in the reaching area of the hands to a silky shine with a horsehair brush.
DRYING TIMES Approx. 24 hrs at 20ºC.
YIELD According to absorbency of surface: approx. 30 m² / litre.
A typical smell of natural oils can occur during the drying process.
