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.

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.
