Unearthed Paints, a manufacturer of eco-friendly paints and plasters is pleased to announce their new natural Hard Wax Oil Finish ¿ a durable surface treatment, ensuring excellent protection for wood, cork and stone in interior applications. Unearthed Hard Wax Oil is produced from natural raw materials, non-toxic, and VOC-free, contributing to a healthy living environment. A simple, natural alternative to give a stylish update to the wood floors or furniture in your home.
The Hard Wax Oil > MORE finish provides a natural, breathable silky-matte finish that penetrates deep into the pores to enhance the wood¿s natural beauty. The transparent, honey tinge hue allows the wood¿s inherent characteristics to show through.
Unearthed uses sustainable raw materials in their Hard Wax Oil finish, such as linseed oil, carnauba wax, tung oil, and colophonium glycerine ester (produced by pine tree sap). Unearthed Paints Hard Wax Oil is made by melting Carnauba Wax and colophonium resin into a mixture of linseed oil and tung oil. Linseed oil ensures a deep penetration of even the smallest wood pores thanks to a small molecule size and a long processing time. The contingent of solid bodies is 100% ("pure solid"). This means that the product does not contain water or solvents, but is solely made from natural oils, resins and waxes.
Conventional wood floor varnishes contain staggering amounts of environmentally harmful, health threatening VOCs. While a typical can of flat interior latex paint contains 50 grams of VOCs per liter, varnishes may contain as much as 450 grams of VOCs per liter. Using a natural, Zero-VOC floor finish is an effective way to maintain good indoor air quality and minimize our impact on the environment.
In addition to being naturally beautiful, sustainable and free of the toxins typically found in floor finishes, Hard Wax Oil is also very practical to use. Most applications require only one coat, and spot repairs are easy to do.
