Osmo Decking Oils are designed to protect, maintain and beautify garden decking, furniture, wooden gates etc. Each one is especially made to match a variety of exotic hardwoods (including Teak, Bangkirai, Massarandua, Garapa, Koto, Iroko) as well as Oak and pressure treated wood such as Pine, Douglas Fir, Larch and Cedar.
On bare wood two coats are required (one coat if being overcoated with anti slip decking oil) and generally one coat is sufficient for maintenance.
1 litre = approx 16-20 sq metres with one coat on smooth wood
1 litre = approx 9-12 sq metres with two coats on smooth wood
Rough or striated wood generally has a significantly lower coverage.
5ml sachets, 125ml, 750ml and 2.5litres
Wood surfaces must be clean, dry (max moisture content 20%) and frost free. Old non Osmo paints and varnishes must be removed first, old micro-porous treatments need only be cleaned or lightly sanded.
Exotic hardwoods such as Balau (Bangkirai) or Teak with a high oil content should be left to weather for 2-3 months(5 months in winter), this timespan can be shortened by wiping over with methylated spirit to degrease the surface.
If additional protection against blue stain, rot and mildew is required pre treat with Osmo WR Base coat 4001, particularly on rough sawn wood this will also improve the coverage of the decking oil.
A full application sheet will be included with every order but please contact us if you have any questions.
*Please note that the colour shades displayed are a true likeness of the original however different output methods (screens & printers) will cause variation in colour. In addition the colour will vary with the wood depending on age, pre-treatment etc and therefore it is always advisable to test on a small inconspicuous area first.
