Cuprinol UV Guard Decking Oil is a water-based decking treatment for use on all exterior hardwood and softwood decking boards. It was formally branded as 'Cuprinol Decking Oil and Protector'.
Please note: Cuprinol brand the clear version of this product 'Natural'. The clear or 'natural' version of this product contains a small amount of added, non colour specific pigment to provide the UV protection.
Ensure the wooden decking to be treated is clean, dry and free from any dirt or loose debris prior to oiling.
For all bare wood decking including tanalised, pressure treated and preservative impregnated decking timbers.
Hardwood decking usually requires a period of weathering to allow the surface grain to open up, which allows for better absorption of the decking oil. Check the decking manufacturer's guidance on how long decking should be left to weather before treating.
Old coating type finishes such as decking paints, varnishes and varnish type stains must be fully removed back to bare wood before oiling. Depending on the condition and type of finish, it may require more than one attempt to fully remove the old coating.
Always do a small test area before beginning any project to assess product performance and results. Follow the manufacturers instructions on the tin at all times.
Stir thoroughly before and periodically during application to ensure a consistent finish.
Cuprinol UV Guard Decking Oil can be spray applied using Cuprinol Spray and Brush or other compatible garden pump sprayer. Refer to the sprayer user guide for full instructions.
Do not apply in temperatures below 5°C, in damp conditions or if rain is likely before product has dried. Cover any surfaces nearby to protect from over-spray. Any over-spray should be cleaned up immediately (whilst still wet) with water and household detergent.
Decked areas can be cleaned at regular intervals using Cuprinol Decking Cleaner.
To maintain the surface finish and its protective properties, re-apply a fresh coat of Cuprinol UV Guard Decking Oil as required, following the Preparation and Application instructions above.
