Murdoch’s Hard Oil


Murdoch’s Hard Oil is another polymerized tung oil-resin hybrid finish.

Murdoch’s Hard Oil contains a higher percentage of resin than Murdoch’s Hard Sealer, offering more protection and durability and can be used as wiping topcoat over our Murdoch’s Hard Sealer.

For most projects, the process starts with the Murdoch’s Hard Sealer as the base coats followed by two coats of the Murdoch’s Hard Oil. The entire process can be applied via a wiping technique which keeps the sheen lower and is perfect when finishing in a very dusty environment.

The higher resin content in the Murdoch’s Hard Oil topcoat will provide more protection to the surface than if using the Murdoch’s Hard Sealer alone.

The higher resin content of our Murdoch’s Hard Oil makes it suitable as a wiping topcoat and keeps the grain appearance as minimal as possible for processes such as pickling. Pickling wood requires some degree of grain blocking to minimize the tone of the wood coming through the white pickling agent, Murdoch’s Hard Oil doesn’t create too much of a barrier to be able to deposit the pickling material into the wood pore.
