  2. Paint can opener
  3. Paint brush
  4. Red applicator pads
  5. White applicator pads
  6. Applicator handle
  7. Supply of clean terry cloths/towel

Application process


On unfinished wood surfaces: 

  • First, apply Oil Plus 2C to the wooden surface. Refer to the Oil Plus 2C technical data sheet for application instructions. After a drying time of at least 24 hours, the SheenPlus can be applied. 

On a surface that has previously been finished with Oil Plus 2C: 

  • First renovate the surface with Oil Plus 2C, in the color with which the surface was originally finished. Refer to the TDS for Oil Plus 2C renovation guidelines listed under Instructions Repair and Renovation. After a drying time of 24 - 36 hours, SheenPlus can be applied. 


  1. Let the Oil Plus 2C dry for at least 24 - 36 hours.
  2. Thoroughly mix the two SheenPlus components together for 1 to 2 minutes, ensuring a ratio of approximately 3 units A to 1 unit B. 
  3. Apply a small amount of SheenPlus with a brush and spread it further with a red applicator pad. Within 15 minutes, go over the oiled surface again with the same red scrubby pad without adding additional product, ensuring that the oil is distributed evenly. 
  4. Finish this area with a white applicator pad until the surface is completely even and rubbed dry. 
  5. Remove any streaks and/or surface irregularities with a lint-free cloth.  
  6. Immediately after wiping with the cloth, wipe the oiled surface one more time with the same white applicator pad that was used in Step 4 (make sure to use the oily side of the pad to do this final step). Wipe the surface in a circular motion and finish wiping the surface in the length of the boards to finish the SheenPlus application. 
  7. Let dry for at least 24 hours before light use of the surface. To ensure effective drying and curing, it is important to maintain proper ventilation and temperature. Full curing takes place in 7 days.
