How to use Tung Oil

Maintaining wood with Tung Oil

For maintenance of new or used items, simply re-oiling once a year is sufficient for all year round protection. Further coats can be applied to high use areas more frequently, if required.

Shake well before use. If you are unsure of the finish, test it on an unseen area first.

Ensure the surface is clean and dry before application, and any old oils or waxes have been removed if restoring an item.

NOTE: The first coat can be mixed 50:50 with White Spirit for better penetration. Do not dilute subsequent coats.

Apply the Tung Oil liberally to a Lint Free Cloth or Foam Brush and rub into the wood following the direction of the grain. Some areas of wood will be more absorbent than others; apply more Tung Oil to any areas which look dryer than other areas. Continue to do so until the full surface of wood looks wet throughout. Leave for 20 minutes and then wipe off any excess.

Leave the Tung Oil to thoroughly soak in and dry for 24 hours.

Apply a further 2 coats, leaving to dry for 24 hours in between each coat. Subsequent coats do not need to be saturated as per the first coat.

Our Tung Oil is 100% Pure Oil and so takes longer to dry than other oils as it contains no thinners or drying agents.

Re-Oiling older wood with Tung Oil

When re-oiling older items of wood, it is important that you remove all previous oils, waxes or finishes before applying the Tung Oil. If the surface feels rough, it should be sanded smooth first, for best results.

Once the surface has been prepared, you can follow the instructions above for applying the Tung Oil.

FAQ – Oiling wood with Tung Oil

Q. What is Tung Oil

A. Tung Oil is a drying oil extracted from the nut of the tung tree, found in China. It is an extremely water resistant oil and was histroically used as a water resistant finish on boats and ships.

Q. What is the benefit of mixing the Tung Oil White Spirit, and is it needed?

A. It is optional as to whether you mix the Tung Oil with White Spirit. If you do, this should only be used for the first coat. The benefit of doing so allows the Tung Oil to penetrate further into the wood, making for a better surface and longer lasting coating.

Q. Does Tung Oil stain wood?

A. No, although the Tung Oil will darken your wood to a certain degree, it has no colour properties to it. The darkening effect will differ depending on how absorbent the wood is. If you’re looking to stain wood, use our Wood Stain.
