Have you ever wondered how to keep the Wood Evolution topsheet of your Sandy Shapes snowboards always in excellent condition?
Our finish is obtained through the application of several layers of an experimented mixture of natural oils and waxes composed of sunflower oil, thistle oil, soya oil, linseed oil, carnauba wax, candelilla wax.
The innovative feature of this natural finish is in the mixture of oils and waxes that form a porous, micro-filtering, waterproof protection, with a natural appearance but resistant to dirt and liquids, without being film-forming. The oily component penetrates into the wood’s pore and saturates it, while the waxy part settles on the wood’s surface, protecting it like a paint. The combined use emphasizes the wood naturalness, highlighting its grain. Cracks, knots and veins are the soul of wood, these imperfections tell us its history and make it a unique and inimitable material. The finish absorbs the light without reflecting it, creating a warm effect more realistic than painting, and even to the touch the surface is more soft.
To protect the Wood Evolution surface it is important to take care of it whenever necessary with the provided Beauty Care Treatment Kit. The kit can be used for the periodic surface maintenance, to repair scratches and to “feed” the wood, through the sanding pad and the treatment.
Lightly smooth the wooden surface with the sanding pad, focusing more on areas where there may be scratches and dirt. We suggest to periodically remove the binding to apply the treatment in the areas below.
Accurately remove the dust and clean up the board, which must be smooth and dry before applying the treatment.
Pour some treatment in the cloth and spread it oiling the whole surface. Don’t use too much: the wood has to absorb the treatment and the surface should not remain greasy.
Let your snowboard rest in a dry and ventilated area for 12 to 24 hours.
