Philosophy of OLI-NATURA
OLI-NATURA offers the professional
user biologically unobjectionable products on the basis of natural and
nature-orientated raw materials with the highest possible cost-effectiveness.
The drying and handling characteristics of oils are greatly determined by the
proportion of unsaturated fatty acids which react with the oxygen in the air
(they oxidize) and cause the oil to harden.
Olive oil, for instance, never
hardens. Sunflower oils or soy oils, which are often found in other
eco-friendly products, have a low proportion of unsaturated fatty acids and
thus dry very slowly. Under warm conditions they soften again and tend to produce
a sticky, easily soiled surface.
OLI-NATURA products have a high
proportion of drying linseed oils, wood oils and modified natural resins. These
components dry quickly and cannot be melted after having hardened. Therefore,
the surface is much more protected and easier to clean.
OLI-NATURA products are free of
solvent additives, such as orange or lemon peel oil. These substances evaporate
over time and can lead to allergic reactions in higher concentrations.
When necessary we use high-purity low-odour
Isopar. Isopar is used for medical purposes and fulfils the standards of the
German Book of pharmaceuticals. Solvents are used to increase the oils ability
to penetrate wood and to reduce the effort needed for buffing. Project oil and
yacht & teak oil are two examples where Isopar solvent is used.
OLI deliberately avoids the addition
of biocides and preservatives. OLI-NATURA oils and waxes form a natural
membrane that protects the wood from moisture without limiting its diffusion
ability notably. Due to the woods ability to breathe and at the same time
prevent the penetration of water, the danger of fungal decay and decomposition
is being reduced significantly in a natural way. However, OLI-NATURA products
are not suitable for application in areas in which no sufficient ventilation
can be guaranteed
and retaining moisture is very
All OLI-NATURA oils which are
recommended for the use outdoors, have a highly effective UV blocker as an
extra, which reduces the damaging and destructive effect of the intensive UV
rays significantly. The natural ageing of the wood is being delayed and the oil
keeps its protective effect.
