More About Us

The Sourcing

The Sustainability

Rubio Monocoat hardwax oil finishes have a formulation base of linseed oil, carnauba wax, and beeswax.

The Spark

Already in the development phase of the Rubio Monocoat system, three years before the first VOC legislation had come into effect, the bar was set significantly high in the area of emission. Not a low VOC content that could still be open for discussion, but a clear statement about oil that is 0% VOC. From the very start, we had already set emission norms for ourselves that were stricter than the ones prescribed in the current 2010 legislation.

The Differentiator

Rubio Monocoat is the only true "monocoat" wood finish that is 0% VOC. One layer provides color (if desired) and protection, all while being economical and environmental.

The Favorite

Oil Plus 2C

The Motto

Colors and protects wood in one single layer.

Rubio Monocoat

About the Brand

"Wood protection products dating back to 1962 resulted in Rubio Monocoat's hardwax oil wood finishes. They are 0% VOC and do not contain any water or solvents. Formulated from natural ingredients, the product is very safe to use, but equally safe for the environment.

Thanks to our technology, the consumption is much lower than for a traditional system. This results in a durable coloring and protection in one single layer. Once the fibers are bonded with the oil, the wood does not absorb any surplus product – which makes a second layer superfluous."
