What is Rubio made from? Is it non-toxic?
Rubio Monocoat is an all natural oiled flooring finish consisting of engineered waxes and linseed oil. Most notable is that Rubio is non-toxic and completely free of VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds), which can cause ill health effects from long term exposure (even in trace amounts).
How does it hold up to spills?
One of the major benefits of finishing your floor with Rubio is that it should be easily corrected after a spill. Most spills just need a quick wipe and even the worst coffee, soda, or wine spills can be easily corrected with a light sanding and re-coating if addressed within an hour or two.
How durable is it?
Rubio not only holds up to wear and abrasions with impressive durability, but when light to moderate scratches do appear, it’s as easy as a doing quick touch up to hide them. And, only the exposed wood from the scratch will absorb the new oil, so you don’t have to worry about a simple touch-up looking blotchy. Simply dab the scratch and wipe away the excess.
How much maintenance is required?
Rubio is a durable finish and should look new for several years. However, like all flooring finishes, it may need light maintenance after a period of years. The good thing about Rubio is it’s relatively quick and painless. If you do have any areas with a little extra wear, just go over it with another coat and you’re looking like new.
How many colors are there?
We currently carry 40 of the available 46 Rubio colors, so you should be able to find the perfect one. If for whatever reason you can’t, you can actually mix the colors so the color pallet is highly variable.
Can I apply Rubio to an existing finish on my floor?
Yes, but if you want to apply Rubio to your already-finished floor,
you do have to sand it down to the raw wood first.
How long does it take to cure?
Rubio takes 5 days to cure with the accelerator component (included).
