Our standard Hard Wax Oil is certified to R11/P4 which meets all regulations and requirements for domestic and commercial environments. We also have an R12 Anti Slip option for the rare occasion that this level is required. It is necessary to note that this formula does have a slightly rough finish and has a noticeably different feel to bare skin then our standard Hard Wax Oil.
Fiddes Anti Slip Hard Wax Oil offers all the same features and benefits to our standard Hard Wax Oil and is just as easy to apply.
Only available in a Matt sheen and in a 2.5lt tin. Please note we only carry a very limited quantity of Anti Slip.
Slip Certificate is available in our Technical Reports section.

Leave to dry for 4-6 hours in ventilated conditions and if possible good airflow. Longer drying times can be expected with exotic wood species and with unfavourable climate conditions.
