Treatex Colour Tones have been designed to give you a beautiful range of colours with which you can change how your floors, doors, stairs and worktops look and feel, without hiding the grain or the natural beauty of the wood. This allows you to match the colours in your home when every piece of wood is different, being that every tree is unique. Treatex Colour Tones penetrate deep into the wood and enhance its natural beauty, manufactured on a base of natural sustainable raw materials and then completed with natural pigments used to colour the oils.

Easy to apply
Sand the surface to smooth bare wood using 80-120 grit sandpaper. Ensure that any previous finish has been fully removed. Remove dust, dirt and any other contaminates which may lead to uneven absorption of Colour Tones. Make sure the surface to be treated is thoroughly dry. Stir tins and ensure product is at room temperature before use. Enough Colour Tone should be purchased to complete the whole project and when more than one container is required it is advisable to mix them together before use. Various species of timbers will take colours differently, we strongly advise a small trial application prior to starting a project.
One coat of Colour Tone should brushed or rolled on. A second coat of Colour Tone is usually unnecessary and will deepen the colour. To ensure an even colour, remove excess product from the surface with a lint free cloth. Allow to dry – maintaining warmth and ventilation will enable the surface to dry within 3-6 hours. If excess product is not removed from the surface, Colour Tones will not dry properly and may appear patchy. Once dry, seal with two coats of Treatex Hardwax Oil Ultra Clear which is available in Flat Matt, Matt, Satin or Gloss sheen levels. The top coats of Clear Hardwax Oil are applied to prevent the natural pigments in our Colour Tones from wearing.
