Barrettine Teak Oil preserves the natural beauty of any exterior wood drying to a pleasing warm tone and satin-matt finish.
Can be quickly and easily applied with a good quality brush or a cloth. A 500ml bottle covers approximately 4 chairs and a small garden table. Also available Barrettine Teak Oil Spray.
As one of the leading suppliers of teak oil finishes in the UK, Barrettine teak oil is specifically designed to aid the upkeep of external wood such as garden furniture and decking. Teak wood oil or as is sometimes known, Danish teak oil, is the perfect partner for hard woods such as Teak, Eucalyptus and Acacia.
With ingredients to help prevent mildew and algae, teak wood oil penetrates deeply into the surface of the wood moving as it expands and contracts with the varying temperature. As the wood oil seeps into the wood to replace the natural oils, it doesn't leave a surface coating so will not chip or flake with time.
How's your teak looking? If it's a bit tired and sad you really can't beat teak oil for giving hard wood a lovely future-proof lustre. Why not read our blog post about keeping exterior furniture in the best possible nick?
As with any DIY job, the key to success is preparation, this also applies to the application of teak oil on interior and exterior wooden surfaces. For new wood, we recommend that traces of dirt and grease are removed with a good quality white spirit. For older / weathered wood, we recommend that the wood is first lightly sanded to a smooth finish; to ensure that any dirt, dust or other surface impurities are removed prior to application.
For best results on old or tired outdoor furniture, sand the surface back to bare wood then apply a quality wood preserver. The wood preserver should be allowed to dry for at least 24 hours before applying the oil. Apply 3 coats of furniture teak oil and remove any excess with a lint free cloth to offer the best protection and provide the best teak finish.
Teak Oil is easily applied with a cloth such as t-shirt material or it can be applied with a velour roller. It is also a very easy product to apply with a spray gun. Apply a medium coat and after 5 minutes wipe away the excess oil with a rag. Subsequent coats are best applied thinly. To avoid extended drying times always make sure that coats are fully dry before applying more top coats.
Any spills should be cleared up while they are still wet with a highly absorbent cloth, the cloth should then be washed in warm soapy water before disposal, this is to ensure that there is little chance of self-ignition. Paint brushes should be cleaned with white spirit and rinsed in clean water.
Care should be taken with the storage and handling of teak oil, containers should be tightly resealed after use and stored in a cool place out of direct sunlight.
Teak oil finish should only be used in well ventilated areas, brushes and cloths should be thoroughly cleaned to prevent any fire hazard, always read the instructions on the tin before use. Take Care: Rags soaked in Teak oil are liable to self ignite. Soak them in water before disposing of them.
A 'medium' coat will dry within 12-24 hours and a thin coat will dry in around 6-12 hours, depending on the environment.
Easy to apply and my garden furniture looks very nice.It was also competitively priced.

The teak oil is easy to apply and not as strong smelling as some others I have used. It has given a really great finish to the garden furniture and I would definitely use it again.
Had some new garden furniture that needed to be protected.My order arrived within the specified time easily applied and left the wood a rich colour.
Really good oil that gets right in to the grain. Thanks for a nice easy job a++++++
Smooth, easy to apply, dries well with non-oily finish
Traditional teak oil for garden furniture, does an excellent job!
Good product, efficient and friendly telephone service, speedy delivery (preceded by at least 7 emails) but appalling packaging. The 5lt can was so badly dented that I couldn't unscrew the lid. I had to puncture the can and decant the contents into another container.You need to do more than just put the item in a weak cardbord box accompanied by token brown paper wrapping material.
