Osmo UV Protection Oil Clear 410 & 420 Extra

All exterior woods will grey naturally but Osmo's UV Protection Oil 410 and 420 Extra have been designed to protect and enhance the wood's natural colour whilst slowing the greying process by 12 times compared to untreated wood. Ideal for vertical joinery such as windows, doors, cladding etc, the natural oil based microporous finish does not crack, flake, peel or blister.

Osmo 410 and 420 Extra UV Protection oils have a satin finish and act as a transparent oil-based protective  finish for exterior wood. The 420 Extra contains a biocide to prevent the growth of algae, mildew and fungal attack whilst the 410 doesn't. The microporous surface allows the wood to breathe whilst reducing swelling and shrinkage.

Please note that Osmo UV Protection Oils are also available with a light pigment; Osmo UV Protection Oil Tints in Spruce (424), Oak (425), Larch (426), Douglas Fir (427), Cedar (428) and Natural (429), please see the UV Protection Oil Tints listing for more details. Please note that the pigmented versions will always offer significantly better UV protection than the clear Osmo 410 or 420. Osmo UV protection can also be used as top coat on already coloured treated wood which have had a coat of Osmo Natural Oil Woodstain, Osmo Wood Oil, Country Colour or HS Plus, in this situation the Osmo UV-Protection Oil will extend the intervals between renovations significantly.

As a self-priming finish, Osmo 410 & 420 prevent the greying process on vertical surfaces with a UV protection factor 12 in comparison to untreated wood when two coats are applied. TheOsmo 420  contains active ingredients that prevent mould, algae and fungal attack. When applying a maintenance coat simply apply without sanding which makes it an easy and seamless application. 

Suitable Applications:

Osmo UV-Protection Oil is ideal for all vertical exterior wood surfaces: doors, windows, window shutters (dimensionally stable elements), carports, timber cladding, balconies, fences, pergolas, and summer houses (dimensionally unstable elements). It is also suitable for bamboo poles (e.g. in screens). Nb.UV protection oil should not be applied directly to horizontal surfaces or surfaces with less than a 15° slope otherwise water will not run off and will eventually permeate the coating.

Key Ingredients:

Based on natural plant oils (sunflower oil, soya oil, thistle oil and linseed oil), siccatives (drying agents) and additives, 420 biocidal active (no biocidal additive in the 410) ingredient: Propicona- zole. Dearomatized white spirit (benzene-free). This product fulfils EU regulations (2004/42/EC) according to the VOC content of max. 400 g/l (Cat. A/e (2010)). Detailed declaration of ingredients available upon request from Osmo.

Technical Information:

Specific gravity: 0.9-1.0 g/cm³
Viscosity: >50s DIN EN ISO 2431/3 mm, viscid
Odour: faint/mild, odourless after drying
Flash point: >60 °C acc. DIN EN ISO 2719

Method of Storage:

Osmo UV Protection oil will last up to 5 years or longer if the can is kept dry, away from direct heat and sunlight and kept tightly closed. If thickened by frost, store for 24-36 hours at room temperature before use.

How to Prepare the Surface:

The wood surface must be clean, dry and frost-free (moisture content max. 20%), avoid applying to surfaces above 35°C. The Osmo UV-Protection-Oil is ready to use, please do not thin. Stir well before use. Clean old microporous stains thoroughly. Any old paints and lacquers must be completely removed. It is always recommended to wear a dust mask during sanding. To help with absorption and ease of application do not sand surfaces finer than P120.

Fresh wood containing extractives and especially exotic hard wood needs to weather off (for approximately 6 - 8 weeks) after installation, pressure treated timber should be allowed to weather for a minimum of 10-12 weeks minimum. This allows the wood to becomes absorbent and the wood finish adheres optimally. A base coat with a coloured finish is always recommended, e.g. Natural Oil Woodstain or Wood/Decking Oil to give the best UV protection.

For renovations, clean old microporous wood finishes thoroughly. Clean and refresh already greyed or weathered wood at the same time with Osmo Wood Reviver Power Gel. The finished surface is, among other things, always influenced by the wood‘s natural characteristics. Therefore, a trial application is always required, especially for unfamiliar surfaces.

If additional protection against blue stain, rot and insects is desired, pre-treat the wood if possible on all sides with Osmo WR Base Coat* 4001. 

*Use biocides safely. Always read label and product information before use.

How to Apply:

Apply thinly along the wood grain with a suitable Brush or Osmo Microfibre Roller and spread well.
Allow to dry for approximately 12 hours with good ventilation before applying the second coat.

Cleaning Tools & Equipment:

We recommend using Osmo Brush Cleaner (free of aromatic compounds) or alternatively white spirit.

Drying Time:

Approx. 12 hours (normal climatic conditions, 23°C/50 % rel. humidity). Lower temperatures and/or higher air humidity can increase the drying time. Allow for good ventilation while drying. Do not apply at temperatures below 5°C or when the temperature will drop below 5°C whilst it is drying.

Coverage area:

1 litre covers approximately 18 m² with one coat but please note that coverage depends significantly on the character of the wood. All information refers to smooth and planed/cut surfaces. Other surfaces may lead to significantly reduced coverage.

Take Note:

Oils and waxes will always change the natural tone of wood (similar to the appearance of wet timber), so for this reason we always recommend doing a test area before the main application. Depending on the degree of weathering and how exposed the wood is, apply one coat of Osmo UV-Protection-Oil Extra to the cleaned and intact finish after approx. 3 - 4 years.

For areas which are highly exposed to weather, such as weatherboard, post caps or window sills, please expect substantially shorter intervals between renovations. Vertical elements mounted onto horizontal wood should have at least a 15 degree angle. Sharp edges must be rounded (radius > 2 mm).

If the greying process has already begun, refresh the surface with Osmo Wood Reviver Power Gel and re-apply 2 coats of Osmo UV-Protection-Oil. To achieve the UV protection factor 12, it is necessary to apply 2 coats of UV-Protection-Oil Extra. With only one coat on untreated wood, the life of the finish is significantly shorter.

Due to the high oil content, clear UV-Protection-Oil Extra has a light yellowing effect when used as a finish on white substrates. Therefore as a top coat on white finished areas, we recommend Natural Oil Woodstain 900 White.

Osmo UV-Protection-Oil 420 Extra contains biocides and therefore is only to be used on exterior areas. The added active ingredients delay or minimize the risk of algae and fungal attack. For effective protection, two coats are to be carried out. In accordance with the latest technical research, a permanent protection against algae and fungal attack cannot be provided.
