Satu Sauna Wax (Satu Saunavaha) is a waterborne protection containing natural wax for wooden surfaces in saunas.
It forms a dirt and water repellent but breathable waxy coat. Cello (clear) Sauna Wax emphasises the natural colour of wood. The product is also available in transparent standard colours.
Satu Sauna Wax is suitable for the treatment of ceiling and wall panels as well as benches in the steam-room of saunas. Also suitable for untreated and previously with wood wax treated wooden surfaces. Satu Sauna Wax can be used for treating ceiling and wall panels in wash rooms, after sauna lounges and habitable rooms.
Clean new wooden surfaces from dust and dirt. Wash surfaces previously treated with wood wax with Rensa sauna cleaner and rinse thoroughly with water. If the wooden surface has previously been varnished, oiled or treated with protection for sauna, the suitability of the product must be ensured by a test application.
Stir well before use. Tinted product must also be stirred during the application, if needed. Apply Satu Sauna Finish by brush or sponge. One application is sufficient for panel surfaces in the steam-room of sauna. Treat ceiling panels in wash rooms and other rooms twice. The intensity of the shade and the absorption of the product to the wooden surface must be ensured with a test application when using tinted product. Absorption properties of the surface and possible previous treatments affect the shade. The product may be thinned with water 5 - 20 % by volume, if the shade seems too intense.
The surface to be treated must be dry. During the application and drying period the temperature of the ambient air, the surface and the product shall be above +10 °C and the relative air humidity below 80%. Good ventilation during the application and drying period quickens the drying process.
The surface can be cleaned by wiping with a neutral (pH 6 - 8) detergent. Detergent and dirt are removed by wiping and/or rinsing the surface with clean water. Use a cleaning cloth, soft sponge or similar for cleaning. Avoid coarse brushing or heavy abrasion. Follow the dilution and other instructions of the detergent producer when using detergents.
Taking into use
Sauna can be heated after 1 day of the application, but it must be preheated and ventilated once before taking into use. The final forming of the film takes about 3 weeks under normal circumstances and after that the ultimate durability and hardness is reached. Before this the surface must be treated with care.
