Applying Monocel Furniture Oil


1. Preparation

  • All surfaces should be dry, finely sanded and free from dust, grease, grime, wax, oil, mildew, fungi & algae.
  • Allow all new timber to age and weather for at least 6-8 weeks. To allow proper penetration, some resinous timber such as Jarrah, Merbau etc. may require additional weathering.
  • It is recommended that these timbers be washed with mineral turpentine prior to coating.

2. Application

  • Stir well with a wide flat paddle before and during use.
  • Apply liberally to all surfaces including exposed edges and end grain by brush, applicator pad or spray.
  • Once timber is fully saturated, wipe off excess if any and allow to dry overnight.
  • Apply second coat, allow to dry for 30 minutes, wipe off excess and allow to dry for a further 24 hours.

3. Drying Time

  • Touch dry in 4 hours. Allow 24 hours between coats.
  • Do not apply in temperatures below 10°C or above 35°C.
  • Do not apply when rain or heavy dew is expected within 24 hours.


Up to 14 square metres per litre depending on the porosity and application technique.


Apply a minimum of 2 coats.


If conditions are warm, thinning additional coats with no more than 5% clean mineral turpentine will ease application.


  • Drying may take longer if the weather is cold or humid.
  • Thinning not required when spraying.

  • Wash your equipment in mineral turpentine.
  • Rinse in fresh water with a drop of detergent.
  • Seal washings and unwanted leftovers and dispose of responsibly.

  • Store out of reach of children
  • Skin: wash the area well with running water
  • Eyes: flush the eye with running water for several minutes, contact your doctor
  • Breathing: use in a well ventilated area; when spraying, use a suitable respirator
  • Swallowed: drink water, do not induce vomiting and contact your doctor or the Poison Information Centre on 13 11 26
