Sadolin Decking Oil is a high quality, clear decking oil for both hardwood and softwood decking. It nourishes the wood with natural oils and contains UV light diffusers which offer superior levels of protection against harmful UV rays. Made from linseed oil and alkyd resin dissolved in de-aromatised white spirit.
Timber surfaces must be suitably prepared, clean, sound and dry. The moisture content should not exceed 18% prior to coating.
Sadolin Decking Oil is only suitable for use on bare or previously oiled decking. It is not suitable for use over water-repellent preservative pre-treatments, unless suitably weathered. Previously painted or varnished surfaces need to be sanded back to bare wood and treated as New Timber.
Always do a small test area before beginning any project to assess the colour, consistency and compatibility of the finish. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.
Do not apply if there is a risk of rain, or when air / substrate temperatures are below 8°C or above 25°C, or if the relative humidity is above 80% during application or drying periods. Protect from frost and rain until dry. Failure to meet these requirements may adversely affect the drying, visual quality and durability of the finish.
Ensure product is thoroughly stirred before and during application. Sadolin Decking Oil is supplied ready for use. Do not thin.
Remove as much of the product as possible from brushes before cleaning with a proprietary brush cleaner.
Due to the high levels of weathering and abrasion that decks are exposed to, it is recommended that 1 or 2 coats of Sadolin Decking Oil are applied once a year, as part of routine maintenance, ensuring the surface is suitably cleaned prior to decorating. On areas which receive high foot traffic this may need to be done more regularly.
