Osmo Teak Oil is suitable for use on Teak, Garapa, Meranti, Koto, Bangkirai, Massaranduba and Iroko as well as other exotic hardwoods. It can also be used on pressure impregnated wood like Pine.
Please Note: Teak Oil 007 is a dual purpose product and is labelled as 'Teak Oil 007' but supplied as Decking Oil 007, but it works the same on both decking and other external wood surfaces. 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, wax and resins inside are thoroughly mixed.
Also available, Osmo Teak Oil Spray (008) in a handy 400ml aerosol spray can
Hardwoods that contain high concentrations of natural oils should be left to weather for approximately 4 weeks. This allows for some of the natural oils in the surface grain to dissipate. Alternatively, these natural oils can be removed by cleaning the surface of the wood with methylated spirit or Osmo Brush Cleaner and Thinner (8000) (degreaser).
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.
Brush over wooden surface with a medium bristle brush to remove surface dirt and debris. A damp lint-free cloth can also be used to wipe off liquid and food spillages.
For stubborn marks and stains, we recommend cleaning with Osmo Exterior Spray Cleaner (8027).
For areas that have become badly discoloured, scuffed or scratched, use a light abrasive to rub back the affected area before re-applying a small amount of Osmo Teak Oil to the damaged areas for a seamless repair.
Q. Do you have a product that I can use on my decking that will be safe for my fish pond nearby?
A. Osmo Teak Oil can be used on any wood, not just teak and is safe for your fish once it has dried on the wood but I don't know of any products that are safe in their wet form.
Q. Can this product be used on Roble wood?
A. Roble is a dense, oily wood that is becoming increasingly popular, amongst superstores, for making garden furniture from. We receive many enquiries from customers, not knowing where they can obtain a suitable maintenance product. The Osmo Teak Oil 007 is ideal because it is a thin oil which is perfect for sinking into the tight grain structure of not only Roble, but also; Teak, Jarrah, Ipe, Iroko, Idigbo and many other oily or exotic hardwoods. It also contains wax which the manufacturers of Roble furniture recommend.
It brings out the very best in the grain of the wood and knowing that it provides protection is peace of mind.
I was advised by a very helpful and friendly member of staff to use this product for protecting an outdoor teak table. I found that it was easy to apply,Great finish when fully dried! Thanks!!!
The products arent cheap but you know that they will do the job. You just need to make sure you buy the product for the job - inside and outside are different but you get the right protection from the right product.
I used as a top coat on a teak bench and it went on with ease looks good but must use sparingly. Great finish on its own.
I bought this oil for an outdoor bench. It is easy to apply and produces a superb finish. Not cheap but worth the money.
By the time I finished up the first tin quickly obtained another of the excellent product.
I was advised by a specialist mid-century furniture dealer that this is the best oil. Have used this once and it appears to be very good.
Does what its supposed to do...protect and enhance wood.
Osmo Teak Oil is very easy to apply, dries well and brings out the natural wood colour. I used the clear oil and am pleased with the result.
Given good colour and finish to faded decking
There is a saying of "Buy cheap buy twice" and this applies here. Having been stung by various cheaper products, we, some time ago opted for better quality and we have not look back. We use this all of the time and in the long run it works out cheaper PLUS your furniture/decking/fences have a look of quality about them.
Was recommended this product for coating new outdoor teak furniture. It's turned the wood an unpleasant orange and I'm hoping this will fade in time. Since read that teak is best left untreated and that, if you apply teak oil it will need re-doing every year. Maybe a mistake...
Hello Mr Kemp,
Many thanks for taking the time to write a review of the Teak Oil for us. A clear oil will often highlight the natural tones of the wood it is applied to, for example pine can often go quite orange or yellow when clear oil or varnish is applied and this is the treatments highlighting the natural pigments in the wood. It is the reason that we always recommend a test area.
Oil does need a regular top up to maintain its protection level and the benefit of this is that you do not have to remove the existing oil to do this, just clean and dry the surface and then re apply. Unlike varnish where you often have to remove the varnish and take back to bare wood in order to re treat the wood. To discuss further or for more information please feel free to call 0800 7818 123.
Kind regards Sam.
Products to coat hardwoods, particularly jarra, are hard to find. Osma teak oilfits the bill but you have to search hard on the website to see which woods it is suited to. Its easy to apply, dries quickly and gives a good sation finish. Time will tell if the coating lasts for mor than a couple of years - I would like to think so.
