Ronseal Decking Oil Natural is a deep penetrating formula that feeds your decking, restoring the natural oils lost over time through weathering. Suitable for hardwood and soft wood decking, It penetrates the wood leaving a natural looking finish that both protects and nourishes.
Decking areas should be thoroughly cleaned to remove dust, dirt, algae, mildew and other contaminates from the surface prior to oiling. For the best results, clean with an appropriate Decking Cleaner allowing the decking to dry thoroughly before applying the oil.
Ronseal Decking Oil can be used over previous decking oils, however other types of decking stains and treatments that act as a sealant or varnish will need to be removed before application.
New or freshly stripped / cleaned decking can be treated with a Decking Preserver prior to applying the decking oil. This helps to protect the timber of the decking from fungi, dry rot & mould.
Ronseal recommend that new decking made from dense exotic hardwoods should be left to weather for a period of 6 months before applying decking oil. This allows the tight grain of these woods to 'open up', allowing the decking oil to be more easily absorbed by the timber. Note: This process is not necessary for softwood decking.
Do not apply Ronseal Decking Oil in wet conditions or if rain, frost or snow is likely before the product is dry.
