Although brushbox floors may produce a hazy brushbox bloom after floor sanding and coating, this will generally disappear in time as the natural oil in the timber makes its way to the surface. The oil is easily removed with mopping until the timber floor boards eventually release their natural oil. If you are looking for non toxic finishes there are water based polyurethanes that may meet your requirements. Take a look at Intergrain Enviropro or if you like the look of a completely raw natural unfinished look, Invisible Protect, that meets tough German standards, may be worth considering. Oil products are not as durable and will require more recoats but they do have a beautiful satin patina. Whittle wax products may be worth a look as they don’t use any carcinogenic or toxic VOC-containing solvents.
Hope this information assists with your research and decision making.
Regards Glenn

By: Jim and Wendy Bisset Sat, 26 Nov 2016 21:03:27 +0000 I have a 49-years-old brushbox floor that I would LOVE to rejuvenate but NOT with anything toxic — have you used oil finishes on brushbox? I’ve contacted several floor suppliers/sanders and I’m being given conflicting information as to what can and can not be used on brushbox. I would appreciate another opinion. Job is on Gold Coast.
