Waterlox H2OLOX® Formula

Our H2OLOX® formula is a water emulsion Tung Oil and Resin formula with less solvents, making it low odor and eco-friendly. When used in conjunction with our UNIVERSAL Tung Oil Sealer, it penetrates deep into wood to lock out water and provide a rich, distinctive finish that is easy to apply, maintain and spot repair.

Product Uses & Tips
  • Use on interior wood surfaces including floors, windows, doors, cabinetry, woodwork, tables, furniture, countertops, picture frames and various woodworking projects.
  • Because it remains elastic, it is a good choice for soft woods (like pine and reclaimed lumber). It also provides exceptional adhesion to oily, dense, exotic woods (like teak, rosewood and ipe).
  • Perfect for restoration projects and period or century homes to enhance and preserve the natural character of the wood with a hand-rubbed, old-world appearance.
  • One gallon of H2OLOX® finish covers 500 square feet per coat (125 square feet per coat for one quart). One quart of the UNIVERSAL Tung Oil Sealer (UTOS) covers 600-800 square feet per coat. No thinning required. For more details, view our coverage guide.
  • Minimum dry time of 24 hours between coats. Poor ventilation, high humidity or cool temperatures may increase dry times.
  • Keep container closed when not in use and keep from freezing.
