Using Rubio Monocoat Oil & Treatments on Fine Furniture

Everyone understands the importance of using high-quality products to achieve superior results. In this blog, we'll have a quick look at the practicalities of using Rubio Monocoat Oil & Treatments.

Understanding Rubio Monocoat:

Unlike traditional finishes that require multiple coats and lengthy drying times, Rubio Monocoat offers a single-coat application that penetrates deep into the wood, bonding molecularly to create a durable, long-lasting finish. With a very wide range of colours and treatments available, Rubio Monocoat allows you to unleash your creativity and bring your piece of work to life.

Choosing the Right Product:

With Rubio Monocoat, versatility is key. You can work with any type of wood and there's an option for you. Go for the Original Monocoat for a natural, matte finish, or the Colour Monocoat. For outdoor furniture or high-traffic areas, consider the Hybrid Wood Protector


Before you apply Rubio Monocoat to your fine furniture, proper preparation is essential. Start by sanding your piece to a smooth, uniform surface, removing any imperfections or blemishes along the way. Clean the wood thoroughly to remove any dust or debris, ensuring optimal adhesion of the Monocoat. And don't forget to protect yourself with gloves and a mask—safety first, always.

Application: Mastering the Art of Monocoat

Rubio Monocoat has an easy-to-use, one-step application process, Monocoat makes achieving professional results a breeze. Simply apply a generous amount of Monocoat to the wood surface, spreading it evenly with a brush, roller, or cloth. Allow the product to penetrate for a few minutes, then buff off any excess with a clean, lint-free cloth.

Drying and Curing:

After applying Rubio Monocoat to your fine furniture, allow ample time for drying and curing. While Monocoat dries to the touch in just a few hours, full curing can take up to 7 days, depending on environmental conditions. Be patient and resist the urge to rush the process—proper curing is essential for achieving the desired finish and durability.

Enjoying the Fruits of Your Labour:

Once your fine furniture has fully cured, it's time to step back and admire your handiwork. Every time I've applied it, it's always given me a great finish. It really punches the grain out and my clients reactions have always been positive.
