Rubio Monocoat: A Leader in the Hardwax Oil Industry
Rubio Monocoat is a pioneer in the field of hardwax oil, having been the first company to introduce an oil with no water or volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Founded in 1906 as Muylle Falcon LTD, the company initially focused on producing mastic before expanding into the production of specialized products for the chemical industry. In the 1980s, the team at Muylle Falcon began developing wood preservative products that utilized molecular binding technology to create progressive solutions for wood preservation.
Under the leadership of Benoit Muylle, the company’s focus shifted to technology, and in 2000, Muylle Falcon was reestablished as Rubio Monocoat with the goal of creating a wood preservative that was free of water, VOCs, and other harmful chemicals. In 2005, the company introduced the Rubio Monocoat hardwax oil, which met all of Benoit’s requirements for a green, easy-to-use, and long-lasting product.
In 2009, Rubio Monocoat expanded its product line to include an outdoor oil with 0% VOCs, and the company has continued to innovate and grow in the years since. Today, Rubio Monocoat is a global company with a presence in 41 countries and 150 employees. The company’s headquarters are located in Austin, Texas, and in 2016, a second site was opened in Belgium. Rubio Monocoat is committed to developing innovative new products and expanding the range of colors and finishes available to its customers.
