Treatex Hardwax Oil is easy to maintain, just a wipe over with a little Treatex Cleaner. This will not only enhance the look but help maintain it’s slip resistance.
To reassure their customers, Treatex Hardwax Oil has undergone independent testing for slip resistance and has achieved the European DIN 51130 standard R10, offering architects, specifiers, Facility Maintenance companies and contractors peace of mind when recording Treatex for commercial applications.
