The Classic Finish in the Evolution range is a 50/50 mix of the matte and the satin Hardwax Oils. Perfect for flooring where matt is deemed as leaving a lustre deemed too raw or where you wish to have the appearance of a finish with minimal sheen on furniture.
It is a relatively new product, far more commonly used in Europe but is gaining in popularity here in Australia. Originally marketed as a flooring finish, hardwax oils are taking the high-end furniture industry by storm due to its many positive properties. As the name suggests, it is a combination of wax and oil. Neither of these finishes produce a strong hard wearing film on the surface on their own. Hardwax Oil is an oil based finish that soaks in, lightly colors the wood and forms a protective film on the surface of the wood. Its for applications where the end user wants a more natural wood finish while also having some sort of protective layer on the surface. Its also for those working with timber that want a beautiful, long-lasting, hard wearing, yet easy-to-apply natural finish.
Whittle Waxes have combined all of the benefits of older versions of Hardwax Oils, but, using state-of-the-art technology in Germany have now created a super tough version of hardwax oil made uniquely for Australia – the new Evolution HardwaxOil.
