Rubio Monocoat Smoke creates a smoky effect on oak wood without any hazardous or irritating vapours being released. The product is always finished with an RMC Oil. The combination of these products enables creative effects while the optimum molecular binding of the RMC Oil with the wood continues to be guaranteed.

ATTENTION: This product is a pre-treatment and does not protect the wood. It has to be combined with one of our Rubio Monocoat finishing products for maximum protection.
  • The product reacts to the tannic acid in the wood.
  • Can be applied both manually and industrially.
  • Packaging: 100 ml 

DESCRIPTION: Rubio Monocoat Smoke is a product that was especially designed to quickly give a smoked aspect to oak wood (or any other tannic acid-containing types of wood). RMC Smoke reacts on the tannic acid in the wood and not on the sapwood. You can obtain unique effects with this product. RMC Smoke can be applied both manually and industrially. Variations in the end result of the finish – depending on the origin, tannic acid-content and quality of the wood – cannot be ruled out. RMC Smoke is always applied in combination with a finish from the RMC Oil-collection. This way an optimal molecular binding of the RMC-finishing product with the wood is guaranteed.
