Food Contact Compliance

Rubio Monocoat Shows Food Contact Compliance

Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus 2C has been one of the most versatile wood oils for many years now. You can apply it to floors, furniture, stairs… and it also lives up to the European toy standard. Moreover, our oil is ideal for countertops and other surfaces where food is involved. Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus 2C has indeed been declared to be used in contact with food.

Additionally, Universal Maintenance Oil, when applied over Oil Plus 2C, is also Food Contact Compliant. This ensures you can always use the matte finish you've come to love, or bump up the sheen a tad to give it some extra luster!

But what does this mean exactly?

Well, in practice this means that charcuterie boards, butcher block countertops, tabletops, etc. that have been treated with Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus 2C are also safe for household use, something that increasingly becomes a recommendation for lots of projects. In fact, our oil was tested by the independent testing institute Eurofins, according to the underlying specification of European Framework Regulation 1935/2004 for Food Contact Materials. The test results show that Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus 2C is in full compliance, when applied to a wooden surface. Therefore, if Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus 2C (A+B) is used on a wooden surface that is in itself food safe, then the combination of the wood and our Oil Plus 2C is also safe! And of course you can then add Universal Maintenance Oil to increase the sheen while retaining Food Contact Compliance.
