The oil adheres - within a couple of minutes - to the upper microns in the wood by a strong molecular binding (no film formation, no saturation).
film formation - multiple layers (intermediate sanding) - not restorable - does not have the natural look & feel
Traditional waxes & oils
continuous saturation - multiple layers - difficult to restore (overlaps) - maintenance intensive
Rubio Monocoat oil
molecular binding - no film formation - only 1 layer needed - easy maintenance - keeps the natural look & feel of the wood
