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
