Osmo Decking Oil is a premium grade decking treatment that is formulated to protect, enhance, and maintain softwood and hardwood decking boards. Once applied and if desired, it can be over-coated with a single coat of Osmo Anti Slip Decking Oil 430 for additional slip resistance.
Osmo Decking Oil can also be used as an effective weather proofing treatment for garden furniture, screens and other exterior wood including pressure impregnated Pine, Douglas Fir, Cedar, Oak or Bangkirai - also suitable for Teak, Eucalyptus and other dense exotic hardwoods as well as thermo treated wood.
*Please Note: Osmo Decking Oil 007 (Clear) does not offer any UV resistance so although the decking will be protected from moisture, cracking, splitting and warping, it will not prevent decked areas from turning grey or silver over time.
Osmo Decking Oil 007 is a dual-purpose product and is sometimes supplied and labelled as 'Teak Oil 007', this is confirmed by the text on the back of the tin. Please be advised that 125ml sample tins are printed in German only.
Before opening the 5ml sample sachets, squeeze the packet several times to ensure that the oil and any colour pigments in the oil are thoroughly mixed before application.
If being applied to soft wood decking then it is recommended to use 50% more due to soft wood being more porous and absorbent and provides a coverage that is 10-12m²
Decking boards must be clean, dry, and frost-free prior to oiling.
Always do a test area before starting any project to assess product suitability and final finish. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin.
The type and age of timber can have a dramatic impact on how much oil the wood needs. As an example, softwood decking that is old may require more oil than a new hardwood decking that still retains much of its natural oil.
To assess how much oil your decking needs, apply one thin coat, allow to dry, then apply a droplet of oil in a corner. If the droplet of oil soaks into the wood, then a further coat can be applied. Repeat this process until the droplet of oil sits as a bead on the surface of the wood and no longer soaks into the timber. This is an indication that the timber has absorbed as much oil as possible and doesn't require any more.
To preserve the look and performance of the oiled finish for longer, it is recommended that decked areas are swept with a stiff broom on a regular basis. This is to remove loose leaves, dirt and other organic matter that can settle on the deck and erode or damage the decking finish.
If the decking finish starts to look worn or tired over time because of heavy foot traffic or weathering, simply apply a fresh coat of Osmo Decking Oil following the Preparation and Application instructions above.
Q. Is there a specific time on how long an oiled deck will last before it needs re-oiling?
A. Unfortunately not. The reason for this is that the elements such as wind, rain and sun all have a degrading effect on the amount of oil in the wood. For that reason, every deck will be different because of location, shelter, weather patterns and general wear and tear.
Q. Is Osmo Decking Oil UV resistant to protect the colour of the decking?
A. As a general rule, the darker and stronger the colour is, the more UV resistance it provides. This is due to the pigments suspended in the oil blocking more of the UV rays. The clear variation (007) does not provide any UV protection. Decking treated with Osmo Decking Oil 'clear' will therefore be susceptible to the natural grey / silvering of the timber over time.
Q. I ordered a tin of Osmo Clear Decking Oil and received a tin labelled 'Osmo Teak Oil 007' is this correct?
A. Indeed it is. Osmo sells their Teak Oil 007 as a dual-purpose product as it is perfect for Teak and decking, especially dark exotic hardwood decking which tends to be made from very dense and naturally oily woods.
Q. Do you sell Osmo Decking Oil Grey?
A. Yes we do. Osmo Decking Oil Grey has a product code of '019' and can be selected by clicking on the 'select colour' drop down filter at the top of this page, next to the image of the tin. The grey version of this product is proving to be very popular as it produces a very clean, modern look to decking.
