  • Fast drying: Bona Nordic Tone has a fast drying time, allowing for quicker completion of projects. This helps to minimize downtime and allows for subsequent treatments or coatings to be applied sooner.

  • Inhibits yellowing: Bona Nordic Tone helps to inhibit yellowing of the wood surface over time. This preserves the desired light or whitewashed effect and maintains the visual appeal of the treated wood.
  • Combination with Bona Mix Colour: Bona Nordic Tone can be combined with up to 5% of Bona Mix Colour to change or further intensify the tone. This offers customization options, allowing for the creation of unique and personalized wood color effects.
  • Recommended protection with Bona Hard Wax Oil: When using Bona Nordic Tone with colored oils, it is recommended to protect the surface with a layer of Bona Hard Wax Oil. This additional layer simplifies maintenance and helps prevent the color from wearing off, ensuring long-lasting results.
