We are the KZN agent for Rubio Monocoat, an environmentally friendly oil which protects and colours your wood in one single layer. The wide vairty of colours (over 40 to choose from) and the fact that this product respects the natural “look and feel” of the wood has made this a very popular product in our market.
The benefits of Rubio Monocoat oils:
Unique colours:The unique Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus pigmentation technology allows an intense and deep colouring in one single layer, without influencing the natural look and feel of the wood. There are 40 colours to choose from.
Colours and protects: Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus adheres with the first microns of the wood by molecular bonding (with no film forming nor saturation). This means you use much less of this product than any other taditional wood finishing system. See below for options
Durable protection: The molecular bonding creates durable, long lasting protection. The better the fibres are bonded, the stronger the protection will be so it is very important to stick to the reaction time of a couple of minutes to ensure the molecular bonding.
No overlaps: Once all free cellulose fibres are molecularly bonded, surplus product will no longer be accepted by the wood or the bonded Monocoat layer itself. This is why overlaps or starting marks are avoided.
Time-saving – colouring and protecting in one layer: It is pointless to apply a second layer on top of Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus because this extra layer will not be able to bond with the free wood fibres or with the primary coat, the bonded-Monocoat layer.
Easy to repair and maintain: This technology allows local repair of damaged areas or scratches as only the free wood fibres will absorb the product. The product next to the scratched or damaged area will not adhere. After the reaction time all surplus product can be removed without overlaps.
Free of water and VOC: Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus does not contain water and its components are mainly natural products. Neither does if contain any volatile organic components (i.e. it is VOC free).
