Product Uses & Tips

  • Use on interior wood surfaces including floors, windows, doors, cabinetry, woodwork, tables, furniture, countertops, picture frames and various woodworking projects.
  • Because it remains elastic, it is a good choice for soft woods (like pine and reclaimed lumber). It also provides exceptional adhesion to oily, dense, exotic woods (like teak, rosewood and ipe).
  • Perfect for restoration projects and period or century homes to enhance and preserve the natural character of the wood with a hand-rubbed, old-world appearance.
  • One gallon of H2OLOX finish covers 500 square feet per coat (125 square feet per coat for one quart). One quart of the Universal Tung Oil Sealer covers 600-800 square feet per coat. No thinning required. For more details, view our coverage guide.
  • Minimum dry time of 24 hours between coats. Poor ventilation, high humidity or cool temperatures may increase dry times.
  • Keep container closed when not in use and keep from freezing.
