Rustin's Pure Tung Oil is a natural, non-toxic oil that is completely free from solvents.

The oil has good penetration into all types of timber without leaving a film and has special properties making it highly resistant to water, alcohol and food stuffs.

Rustin's Pure Tung Oil is additive free and safe for use in contact with food. It forms a hard-wearing finish, making it suitable for kitchen work surfaces, chopping boards and interior woodwork.

During preparation, the surface must be clean, bare, sanded smooth and free of all traces of wax. Pure Tung Oil will bring out the natural colour of wood, but the colour of the wood may be changed using Rustins Wood Dye.

Using a clean soft cloth or brush, apply liberally and allow the oil to penetrate for 20 minutes. Wipe of the excess with a clean soft cloth. The first coat of Rustins Pure Tung Oil can be diluted with 40 per cent white spirit, which will further assist penetration into the timber.

Under warm and dry conditions, the product should be allowed to dry for 24 hours before further coats are applied. New or bare wood should be oiled three times initially, but more coats can be applied for extra protection. Surface should be allowed to cure for a few days before use.

Coverage is 13 sq. metres per litre per coat.

Rustins Tung Oil is sold in 500ml and 1L containers.

Full product data sheets and safety data sheets are available on request.
