Linax surface treatment
Linax surface treatment (Royal treatment) means pine that has been pressure impregnated with a copper-based product and then vacuum-boiled in process oil (linseed oil). This gives a wood product with excellent dimensional stability which means there is less risk of cracking than would be the case with untreated or impregnated wood. Over time, Linax-treated furniture will acquire a weathered grey tone and the oil in the outermost layer will gradually be worn away. If you like the weathered grey surface, it is not necessary to oil the furniture until 6-12 years have passed, depending in the climate conditions. Carex Linolja Naturell should be used for maintenance. It is important that the wood has been cleaned and is dry (maximum 20% moisture quota) before it is treated with the oil. Any resin must be scraped off with a sharp knife. Linax-treated furniture are only intended for outdoor use and for use above ground.
Wood material Jatoba (hardwood)
When delivered, this wood has been treated with a wood oil based on linseed oil. To protect the wood from moisture, rot, cracking and discolouration, we recommend that the wood is oiled in every autumn and spring with a wood oil based on linseed oil. Before treating the wood, it must be cleaned by washing or brushing. It is important that all surfaces, especially
end surfaces, are treated. Hardwood that has greyed can be restored so it regains most of its original appearance by being sanded with fine sandpaper/sanding sponge and then being
oiled in. Cracking can be counteracted through treatment with oil but cannot be completely eliminated. Wood oil for the maintenance of Jatoba wood can be bought from Lappset.
The steel has been EPD varnished and powder-coated for high rot protection and does not need any specific maintenance, only normal cleaning. If the varnish gets damaged, the area should be treated for rot protection as soon as possible and then top-coated with a lacquer paint, preferably a 2-component lacquer to prevent rust.
Hinge joints and locks on litter bins and ashtrays should be oiled in once a year to prevent noise and rust and bolts may need to be tightened on the wooden components of sofas, chairs, benches and tables.
