Repair of an oiled Permabois floor

Procedures to follow to repair major scratches or localized wear on an oiled floor

  1. If PERMALUSTRE has been applied, it must first be removed by rubbing very gently using a Scotch-Brite scouring pad.
  2. Apply a very thin coat of base oil using a lightly moistened cloth, brushing gently and gradually against the floor to obtain a uniform color.
  3. Allow to dry for at least 12 hours and check whether the obtained colour is dark enough to conceal the scratch. If not, apply a second thin coat of base oil following the same procedure.
  4. When the base-oil coat is thoroughly dry (which may take 12 to 18 hours), apply a thin coat of finishing oil using a lightly moistened cloth.
  5. To finish, when the finishing oil coat is dry, polish very gently using a Scotch-Brite scouring pad to increase lustre and make the application uniform.

In time, the dye will become more uniform.
The various resurfacing oils are available directly from licensed Permabois distributors.

 

Procedures to follow for minor repairs

In order to help you, PERMABOIS puts at your disposal a touch-up kit to repair minor scratches.

1. Wax stick (14 g)

First, remove any dirt. For a superficial scratch, skip this step and move to step 2. If the area to be touched-up is deep enough, use the wax stick to fill the hole, following the direction of the scratch. Wipe any excess with a cloth, rub very gently with a green Scotch-Brite scouring pad, and move on to step 2.

2. Permeating base oil (18-ml bottle)

Shake well. Using the brush, apply a thin coat of oil, following the direction of the scratch. Wipe the excess using a cloth and allow to dry for 12 hours. Repeat this step if the shade is too pale.

3. Finishing oil (pencil)

Shake the pencil. Push the piston in to allow the product to flow. Apply a thin coat of oil, following the direction of the scratch. Wipe any excess using a cloth and allow to dry for 12 hours. Sand down very lightly using a green Scotch-Brite scouring pad to bring back lustre.
