Apply a thin coat Food Safe Oil first using a clean, lint free cloth, work this into the surface and leave to sink in for 6 hours.
If needed, after 12 hours you can then abrade back with 320 grit finishing paper (201533132/46) and apply another thin coat, further coats can be applied depending on the absorbency of the substrate but 2 should be sufficient.
If using as polishing lubricant, a few drops applied to the surface of the rubber should be sufficient to help with the application of Shellac Polish once the surface becomes tacky.
It can then be worked off with a small amount of white spirit in preparation for the final coat of polish or spiriting off.
On average per litre 10-12 m2 - dependant on substrate absorbancy and method of application.
Always replace the container lid, otherwise the oil could deteriorate.
Store at a temperature above 5°C.
Clean oiled surfaces with a damp cloth and mild detergent.
