A one-coat oil-based sealant

Offering more than 40 standard colours in one-coat, protecting timber against fading, wood rot and flaking, Rubio Monocoat is an innovative non-toxic, one-coat oil-based sealant for all types of interior and exterior wood, including furniture.

Rubio Monocoat has unrivalled characteristics and technology that generate a molecular reaction with the uppermost cellulose fibres of the wood. This cuttingedge technology ensures that oils are eco-friendly, easy to apply, and are of superior quality – sealing or staining wood in over 40 standard colours in a single coat to protect against fading, wood rot and flaking. One of the beautiful things about the Rubio Monocoat range is the ability to customise wood surfaces to your own specifications. One isn’t limited to a narrow collection of styles or colours. It’s an opportunity to shape your own distinctive masterpiece that reflects your very special sense of style. Imagine the possibilities of designing your own floor, your own kitchen counters and fittings. It’s all about what you envision. The point of making a one-of-a-kind floor is to produce a work of art that’s an expression of you and you alone. Rubio Monocoat molecular engineering technology allows the coat to bond to the wood in a single application without creating any overlaps. Once all free cellulose fibres are molecularly bonded, surplus product is not accepted by the wood or the bonded Rubio Monocoat layer itself. This is why overlaps or starting marks are avoided. This molecular bonding creates a durable, long-lasting protection. Rubio Monocoat finishes, can be spot-repaired in the middle of the room. This is because only the open (damaged) wood fibers will take the touch-up coating. The existing finish next to the scratched or damaged area will not accept new oil. There is no overlapping or additional build-up and the sheen will blend in perfectly. This is an ideal solution for high traffic areas. As the oil is applied it molecularly bonds to the wood and leaves a matte surface that offers a strong protective coating. This means that it won’t crack, flake, peel, blister or panelise like conventional surface finishes. It’s resistance to spills is extremely impressive. A few prime examples of where it is being used include Nandos Blackheath, Pizza Hut, Doppio Zero and Hard Rock Café. With Rubio Monocoat you get the best of both types of finishes – the beautiful look of traditional oil finishes and the durability of a higher end surface finish.

Rubio Monocoat oil wood floor finishes are completely VOC free, natural, and non-toxic. Rubio Monocoat is the first zero-VOC oil-based finish to raise the bar and offer wood protection without the off-gassing of toxic  chemicals.
