Product Detail


Low VOC, alkyd based, high solid, timber coating oil. Suitable residential and commercial applications, in standard and high-wearing areas.








Synteko Solid Oil is a low VOC timber coating oil. The main ingredient is an alkyd based on tall oil (typically obtained as a by-product of wood pulp manuifacture). This avoids potentially negative environmental issues associated with use and disposal of traditional polyurethane based products. However, this is a solvent-based finish.

Formulated for treatment of wood and cork floors. However, also suitable for wooden stairs, windowsills and benches, and applicable for high-wearing applications such as museums, airports, retail.

High solid content (approx. 90%) means there is less potential for emissions to air, and the product also has a high coverage rate of 15-60m2/L (depending on tools and wood species). This coverage rate is stated to be up to three times greater than comparative wood floor oils (unverified claim).

Synteko state that, with correct maintenance, the product does not need to be resanded, due to the high solid content and buffing process in application. These factors, and the durable, high-wearing quality of the finish, may result in significant material and labour costs savings in application, maintenance, sanding and recoating over the life-cycle of the floor.
