Rubio Monocoat

RMC Natural Hybrid Wood Protector

RUBIO-Oil_product

Rubio Monocoat Oils offer unique wood protection with unrivalled characteristics based on molecular bonding, which retains the natural look and feel of the wood, whilst offering durable colour and protection in one just coat. RMC Hybrid Wood Protector bonds with the top molecular layer of the wood - within in a couple of minutes - allowing different coats to be applied without any overlap, unlike traditional waxes or oils. It also means that durable colouring and protection can be achieve in just a single coat. Once the fibres are bonded with the oil, the wood will not absorb any surplus product - which makes a second layer superfluous.

  • Touch dry in less than 5 minutes
  • Natural ingredients, VOC-free - safe to use, and safe for the environment
  • Colour and protection achieved in a single layer
  • Covers approximately 30m² per litre
  • Durable long lasting protection with integrated UV stabilizer
  • Easy maintenance (without sanding!) - refresh colour and protection by simply re-applying the same product
  • Suitable for all wood types, both inside and out (including man made)
