Osmo UV Protection Oil Extra is ideal for use on all exterior timber, including external doors, window frames, windowsills, carports, timber cladding, balcony, screens & smooth fences, pergolas, summer houses and furniture.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.
Before opening the 5ml sample sachets, squeeze the packet several times to ensure that the oil and pigments inside are thoroughly mixed.
Please Note: This product is not recommended for use on flat, horizontal surfaces where water can collect, such as floors, decking and wooden steps.
Using this product on rough sawn or featherboard wood will significantly reduce it's coverage.
Ensure that wood surfaces to be treated with Osmo UV Protection Oil Extra 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.
Oiled surfaces can be regularly cleaned with Osmo Exterior Spray Cleaner (8027).
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 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.
