I heard about Rubio Monocoat from a contractor acquaintance who uses it for hardwood flooring stain and finish. I was looking for a nice finish to use on a bed I made of Wormy Chestnut. An oil finish seemed better than a film build product such as lacquer on this beautiful wood. The matte finish and supple feel of the wood after using the Monocoat is exactly what I had envisioned plus it really brought out the warm color and grain definitions in the wood. Application was very simple and a little goes a long way especially in my experience. I used a rag to apply the oil rather than the squeegee method in an effort to avoid the oil pooling in the multitude of worm holes and running through to the other side. I’m concerned that the thirsty wood got enough oil to penetrate to give durability. However, it looks great! Now I’m concerned with the shelf life of the remaining product. Customer service at Rubio Monocoat informed me that the hardener (part B) could last from only a few weeks to a few months. The oil (part A) could last up to 6 months after being opened. I opened the oil the next day after using it and it had already formed a skin on top. The hardener is in a can that does not reseal well at all. In fact it was very difficult to open the first time because of overflow that had hardened around the lid. Horrible container for a product this expensive.
Overall I’m pleased with the product and will use again. Hopefully soon so I can use up the rest of what I have. The time and labor you save with this one coat system outweighs the cost.
Easy perfect finish

I really like the finish results. I have used the product on 2 projects so far. A maple live edge dining table and a river coffee table. Love the texture of the finish smooth with the feel of wood, not a coated feeling. Use very small amount of the product to get coverage. Not able to comment on durability yet.
white pine skip planned floors
Posted by Robert on 21st Jan 2019
I just finished ~1000 SQFT of monocoat plus 2c on rough pine flooring milled in VT. We prepped the floors as prescribed with a vacuum and then Rubio cleaner. Then went about rolling and rubbing the oil into the wood...and then buffed out. It was pretty hard work, I’d say about 20 hours total. But it looks super cool and hopefully will be a legit long term solution. We have some pictures if interested. Oh, we used about 3.5 ltrs.
the best, period.

Monocoat products have changed our business. Over decades designing and building furniture, I've used dozens of finishing products and nothing compares to Monocoat. Application is simple and foolproof, requiring little training. And the results are outstanding. I could not be happier.
Spread the word
Posted by Kimble Hayes Design Build on 24th Nov 2018
We started using this product about a year ago when we were looking for alternative matte finishes for an architectural millwork project we were asked to bid on. We provided several finish samples before the restaurant client settled on #21 Natural. The client couldn't be happier with our work and we were pumped to find this product with NO VOCs!! Easy to use, smells wonderful and the finish is outstanding. We are spreading the word, one project at a time.
Best stuff ever

Rubio Monocoat Natural Oil
Posted by Colleen on 5th Oct 2018
Great product! Beautiful, deep finish and pleasant scent. This is an amazing stain and I feel content knowing that it is not polluting my home. Instead of purchasing a closet system, my husband and I chose to make our own customized to our needs. The end results achieved using Monocoat Oil plus 2C have made us eager to take on another project. The Charcoal gave our project an unique, custom look. Customer service has also been very helpful in answering all my questions. Love this company and its products!
Great option for finishing desktop
Posted by Jana Sansbury on 3rd Oct 2018
Just needed to finish a desktop that I had stripped and bleached. Wanted a natural looking finish that would withstand typical desktop use. I chose the oil plus 2c in 5 percent smoke. Had way too much (used the smallest quantity they offered) but the finish is really nice. Only wish there was more "smoke" in the final product. Maybe my wood didn't have enough tannin in it. Pretty nonetheless.
#1 best product to refinish hard wood floors hands down !!!
Posted by Unknown on 24th Sep 2018
I have refinished floors the old fashion way varnish. Will never use that ever again. Monocoat is the best way to refinish floors hands down. We built a 4000 sq foot log home and we finished all the floors ourself. We installed unfinished ingrown bark hickory flooring and used clear/pure oil and everyone is in love with our floors. I tell everyone I know about Monocoat. :):)

the best stuff i found yet ! easy to work in a beautiful finish. and as far as repair, i can't even see the spot that i repaired two days after monocrat was applied. NO cutting corners on sanding, use a guide coat. my repair was in the sanding.top notch product.

Was going to refinish my floors with the usual poly finish... until I stumbled upon this product.... best decision ever! So happy with the finish - so natural and love not having that plastic coating over the floor. My husband had a hard time adjusting to the matte finish but he loves it now! I used the charcoal on red oak and it is stunning! Going to refinish my dining table and coffe table with monocoat also. The product is so easy to use.
Couldn't be HAPPIER with Oil Plus 2C!
Posted by Heather B. on 7th Apr 2018
I used the Oil Plus 2C to finish and seal the new butcher block counter tops in my kitchen. I looked at SO MANY products, reviews and suggestion...I could not be happier that I chose to go with this product that is environmentally friendly, easy to apply and clean up and that ENHANCES the beauty of the wood you are working with! I followed application instructions for prep (sanding & rubio wood cleaner) and then applied using a paint sponge and wiped off excess oil after about 5-10 minutes. I let the 3 sections of counter top cure for 7 days, but was worried that I had not applied enough Oil Plus 2C...so I emailed customer service and they suggested applying another coat - which I did after the counter tops were cut and put in place. The finish is AMAZING! The color sample for the cinnamon brown is spot on. I LOVE my new counter tops!

Honestly, I used it because of the color, indigo blue is exactly what I wanted and no other product could even come close. Mine is a renovation project, but with brand new white oak floors - white oak because the red oak shifted the blue oil to be a bit purple in the samples we made. Also, we did a water wash prep on the floor to raise/open the grain a bit so the finish is darker than the dry prep. The dry prep also pulled the yellow about of the wood and made the oil color shift to be a bit green. So be sure to do a few samples before committing to the entire floor if you’re as particular as I am (an architect doing my own place!). Next, be prepared for a VERY matte finish. It is truly beautiful, but shows a lot of dust/footprints, etc. The Monocoat cleaning products are great. Also, be prepared for the color to transfer to your socks for a while - this goes away after several moppings. (FYI, I had my floor completed and then protected while finishing the remainder of the interiors, about 4 months, so it’s not a function of curing time... All in all, I am sold and would recommend this product to anyone!! Just be sure you know the small hassles so you’re prepared to love it!
a beautiful and practical alternative to film finishes
Posted by Clark Peaslee on 21st Mar 2018
As a custom furniture and cabinetmaker, I've always preferred the depth and beauty of natural oil finishes but until recently had not found a product that protected wood as reliably as, say, catalyzed lacquer or varnish. Monocoat 2C has changed all that. Now there's a viable, non-toxic choice to protect wooden products while enhancing the beauty of wood grains and colors.
Furniture finish go-to
Posted by Ryan Scurfield on 15th Mar 2018
I Absolutely LOVE rubio monocoat oil + 2c!! I have all but completely switched to using it on my custom furniture pieces. The ease of application, fast handling and cure time, matte finish, and nature beauty it brings out make it second to none in my book for most projects.
Monocoat.us has exceptional customer service to boot!! And I mean EXCEPTIONAL.
SO easy and beautiful
Posted by Polly Palmer on 13th Mar 2018
This was such an ease to use. I just followed the instructions as they were listed and watched a few videos on youtube to make sure I wasn't missing anything. I refinished my 75 year old hardwood floors and they look beautiful. Thank you, Monocoat!

Exceeded Our Expectations
Posted by Chris Coutu on 10th Dec 2017
So the monocoat has exceeded our expectations and we are looking forward to using it in the rest of the house.
Thanks again for the quick responses and straightforward answers to the questions I have had. It has taken the apprehension out of using a new product.
