Rustins Textured Decking Oil contains unique texturing agents to improve the slip resistance of wooden decking in wet and dry conditions. Suitable for all hardwood and softwood decking boards and steps. Ideal for both domestic and commercial decked areas.
Ensure that wooden decking is clean, dry and free from dust, dirt and other surface contaminants before oiling.
For all bare wood decking, including pressure treated, tanalised and preservative impregnated decking boards.
New hardwood decking usually requires a period of weathering to allow the surface grain to open up. This allows for better absorption of the decking oil. Check the decking manufacturer's guidelines on how long decking should be left to weather before treating.
Always do a test area before starting any project to assess product suitability and final finish. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times. Do not apply if rain is expected. Do not apply to damp timber as this will prevent the oil from penetrating the wood and adhering, causing it to flake off.
To preserve the look and performance of the oiled finish, we recommend that decked areas are swept with a stiff broom or decking brush on a regular basis. If signs of mould or algae appear, use an appropriate decking cleaner.
Scuff marks, stains, grease and other surface contaminates can normally be cleaned with a decking cleaner. Stubborn marks and stains may require a light sanding and a thin application of decking oil to restore the affected area.
To maintain the finish or if the finish begins to look worn, simply re-apply a thin coat of Rustins Textured Decking Oil to the decking, following the 'Preparation' and 'Application' instructions above.
