Woca Finishes

Showing all 4 results


  • A natural oil finish penetrates the timber pores as opposed to a lacquer finish which is a top surface coating. The oil finish is a low sheen matt finish and you will feel the grain of the timber. Your oiled floor should be maintained in an appropriate way as detailed below and this allows you to keep the natural look of the floor over the lifetime of the floor while also providing ongoing surface protection.

    In order to keep your Natural Oiled flooring protected and looking well over its lifetime, please follow below guidelines. The recommended Woca care products should be used as they are compatible with the factory applied surface finish:

    1: IMMEDIATELY AFTER INSTALLATION
    An application of Woca Oil Refresher should be done as first treatment immediately after installation. This comes in a ready mixed 750ml spray (covers 60m²) or a 2.5 Litre can which is more concentrated (covers 250-300m²). These can be applied simply using a rectangular/square cotton cover mop (spray) or a mop and bucket (2.5 Litre concentrate). If the flooring has gotten dirty during renovation, please use Woca Wood Cleaner the day before the Oil Refresher is first applied.

    N.B. Woca Wood Cleaner is a high strength intensive cleaner and is not for general/regular cleaning. It should only be used as outlined above and as per step 3 below.

    Certain floor surfaces e.g. Oak Florence band sawn may have a dry appearance due to the rougher texture. These require an initial treatment of maintenance oil – please see step 3 below.

    2: ONGOING CLEANING & CARE
    Ongoing regular cleaning should be carried out as needed using Woca Oil Refresher as outlined in step 1. Higher traffic areas e.g hallways, kitchen areas will require more frequent cleaning. White/Grey tone floors willl require more frequent care.

    3: RE-OILING & RESTORING YOUR FLOOR
    Residentially, the floor will need to be re-oiled every 1-4 years depending on the area and level of use. When the floor needs to be re-oiled, the floor should be first washed with Woca Wood Cleaner. A buffing machine with a white pad can be used for more stubborn marks/stains.

    The following day a coat of Woca Maintenance Oil is then applied by buffing machine. It takes 1 week for the oil to fully harden. After 1 week, please follow Step 2 recommendations above for ongoing cleaning and care of your floor.

  • An oil/waxed finish penetrates the timber pores but not as deeply as a natural oiled finish. There can be a slight silk sheen off the finish which will dull down over time. It has a slightly more sealed feel to the surface than a natural oil finish. With an oil/wax finish, it is important to use the recommended maintenance products for the flooring as it provides ongoing protection to the floor surface – essentially feeding the floor.

    • WOCA HARDWAX OIL
    o For oil finishing of hardwaxed, unfinished or newly sanded wooden floors.
    o Ensures an extremely hard-wearing and light film-building surface
    o Application: Buffing Machine

  • A UV Oiled finish is similar in many ways to a matt varnish as the oil is hardened under UV lights during the finishing process. Eventually the surface will wear down similar to a varnish.
