Eukula HardWax Oil Finish
In today’s competitive marketplace, progressing companies are continually searching for ways to improve the quality and value of their products. In order to provide new, quality products and service which our customers deserve, Wide Plank Hardwood Ltd. has introduced the Eukula line of stains and Hardwax Oil finish. Developed in Germany, this environmentally friendly hard wax oil finish is hand-rubbed into each plank to enhance the natural beauty and texture of the wood while allowing for easy maintenance and repairs. When an oil finished floor is properly cared for, independent German tests have proven this finish will last for generations, further reducing the use of our precious natural resources.
