Recommended Use: Protects, maintains and beautifies wooden decking, garden furniture and screens made from Pine, Larch and other softwoods – also suitable for a pigmented treatment of Cedar, Garapa, Teak, Eucalyptus and other hardwoods.
Contains: Based on natural vegetable oils (sunflower-oil and soyabean-oil, iron oxide and organic pigments, siccatives (drying agents) and water-repellent additives. Dearomatised mineral white spirit (benzene-free). Complies with Environment Canada VOC regulations (SOR/2009-264). Detailed declaration of ingredients available upon request.
Important: A pressure washer can significantly raise the moisture content beyond 20% and surfaces prepared in this manner must be allowed to dry for 2-3 weeks before applying finish.
1. If possible apply the first coat on all sides of the decking boards before installation
2. Use an Osmo 150mm Decking Brush to apply the Decking Oil thinly and evenly, along the wood grain
3. Allow 10 to 12 hours drying time, then apply a thin second coat as above. Dried surface is satin-glossy at first and afterwards is satin.
Note: The finish may also be buffed into the wood, in thin applications using a non-abrasive white pad or microfibre applicator pad.
Tip: The type and age of timber can have a dramatic impact on how much Decking-Oil you need.
As an example, softwood decking that is old will likely require more oil than a relatively new hardwood decking that still retains a fair amount of natural oil.
To test how much oil your deck needs, apply one thin coat, allow it to dry, then apply a droplet of oil in a corner. If the droplet of oil soaks into the wood then a further coat can be applied. Repeat this process until the droplet of oil sits as a bead on the surface of the wood and no longer soaks into the timber. This is an indication that the timber has absorbed as much oil as possible and doesn’t require any more.
Love this product for finishing our home (floors, window trim, shelves, furniture etc)
Huge fan of osmo and I will also be a return customer to the paint people, as their price was very competitive and the packaging/padding/wrapping was superb!
It made it out to BC in great time and without a hitch or a dent.
Works so much better than anything I can get locally! The stuff I’m used to using makes a gloppy mess. This stuff just liquifies the paint, and it comes right off. Worth it when refinishing antiques with ornate carvings. Just wish I could find it locally, because shipping makes this stuff expensive!
