Hard Wax Oil - West Wind Hardwood

Hard Wax Oil


OLI NATURA Hard Wax Oil is a special oil and wax combination for the treatment of wood floors and interior wood. Surfaces protected this way are easy to clean, and resistant to dirt and water.

The oil penetrates deeply into the wood while the wax remains on the surface and causes a silk-matte gloss, which can be further intensified through polishing. Coat with Project Oil first to add a warmer tone to the wood, then follow with hard wax oil.

An independent testing laboratory certifies that the hard wax oil can be used without hesitation on wooden surfaces that come into contact with food: on dining tables, worktops, cheese plates, snack boards or knife blocks.

Storage time in unopened containers for 12 months. Avoid temperatures over +30 °C at storage and transport.


Please find details of the labelling and safety information on our safety data sheet.


Sand the wood gradually with grain sizes 80/100/120. The surface has to be clean, dry and free of grease, oil, wax and dust. With wooden floors we recommend you to fill in the gaps with OLI putty and sanding powder before the final sanding.

Stir the hard wax oil well and pour it carefully on the surface (approx. 40-50 g/m²). Then spread it evenly thin with a brush, spatula or a mohair roller.

Let the hard wax oil soak in for 20 to 30 minutes. Then rub it in with an oil brush or, if you have a wooden floor, with a single-disc machine with a beige or white pad.

After a drying time of 6 to 8 hours, repeat the application as described in steps 2 and 3.

Depending on the humidity and the temperatures, the oil is hardened after 2 to 3 days. Protect the surface from water during this time.

Comments/notes on use:

Do not apply at floor temperatures below 12°C.
Drying data refer to measurements under everyday conditions of
20°C and 50% humidity.
Sand damaged areas well and apply 1-2 layers of hard wax oil!

**Danger of spontaneous combustion! Do not ball up rags. Clean used cloths/pads directly after use or keep them in a sealed container filled with water. Dispose of empty cans or unused portion in accordance with local, provincial, and federal regulations.

Follow-up treatment and care:

Use OLI-NATURA care wax for first care and refreshment. For common maintenance cleaning, we recommend OLI-NATURA wood soap.

    It’s quite an amazing product. Been using for years on flooring (white oak parquet), window sills (douglas fir) and van furniture (baltic birch). Super easy to apply (I roll it on and then after a few minutes wipe with cloth). 2 coats is optimal. If you get a dent/ scuff, simply sand, re-apply oils and wait and wipe.
