Osmo UV Protection Oil Extra is ideal for use on all exterior timber including external doors, window frames, windowsills, carports, timber cladding, balcony, screens & fences, pergolas, summer houses and furniture. Osmo do not recommend that this product is used on flat horizontal surfaces where water can collect such as floors, decking and wooden steps.
Please Note: Osmo UV Protection Oil Extra (Natural 429) has been specifically designed to retain the natural, untreated appearance of lighter timbers such as Oak, Pine and Larch. It is not suitable for dark exotic hardwoods as it may leave a 'milky' or 'white film' appearance to the wood.
The clear version of this product (Clear 420 Extra) can be used as a top coat for Osmo exterior coloured finishes such as Osmo One Coat Only HS Plus, Osmo Natural Oil Woodstain and Osmo Country Colour.
Ensure that wood surfaces to be treated with Osmo Protection Oil are clean, dry and frost-free (moisture content max. 20%).
Please Note: Allowing the wood to weather, especially dense exotic hardwoods, enables the tight, dense grain of the timber to open up. This makes it easier to apply the oil and allows it to penetrate deeper in to the wood grain.
Always do a test area before starting any project to check suitability and compatibility. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.
When renovation is required, ensure that surfaces are clean and dry.
Q. I work for a joinery that makes and fits bespoke hardwood windows, doors and decking. Can Osmo UV Protection Oil be used on dense exotic hardwoods like Teak, Iroko, Ipe, Meranti and Garapa?
A. On the tin it states that Osmo UV Protection Oil Extra is not suitable for use on Iroko, Teak and other exotic hardwood timbers. This said however, we have customers that have used Osmo UV Protection Oil with success on these woods.
Wiping the timber down with methylated spirit prior to applying the oil can aid penetration with these wood types. Other things that can help include allowing the wood to weather for 6 weeks and ensuring that the oil is at a good room temperature which keeps it thinner. Cold temperatures thicken the oil making application more difficult.
Q. Can Osmo UV Protection Oil 420 Clear be used on garden decking?
A. Osmo says that this product is not suitable for use on horizontal surfaces such as decking. This said however, we have customers that have applied one coat of Osmo Decking Oil then applied 2 very thin coats of Osmo 420 clear on top and have been happy with the results.
I used this on a oak framed building where the timber is on show so it needed protection. The old oak was quite weathered and the osmo oil both covered and filled the minor cracks. The new oak covered well and looks lovely. You do get the wet look to the finish and it is important to brush it out well otherwise it takes a long time to dry.
Will be ordering again next time
Easy to use
I have just completed installing 170m2 of `Natural wood cladding` on my new build and was recommended to use this product by the timber suppliers to provide the UV protection. The oil was applied in two coats and I am really happy with the lovely finished look it has provided to the property.
Fantastic service and fast well packed product
All the products referred to in this survey have performed well. OSMO UV protection oil is a superb product. makes ceder cladding look great. Most of all I have to commend Wood Finishes Direct, their staff are knowledgeable, courteous and professional. Won't hesitate to return. Thank you. Pat K.
exellent for exterior woodwork . nice finish and good sunlight protection.
Good product but does change the colour slightly and takes ages to dry on ruff surfaces
Goes on real easy - foam roller to apply - went into wood reasonably deep - should give plenty of protection for years to come !
wonderful preservative of all woods but especially effective on oak I was advised by my oak supplier and has certainly worked well on Oak and Sapele. Highly recommended.
