Liberon Decking Oil is ideal for feeding, protecting and enhancing the natural beauty of most types of timber decking. It is perfect for reviving and restoring colour to old or new decking and is suitable for use on fences, garden sheds, gates and hot tubs etc. Containing UV filters it helps reduce discolouration and fading from the sun, whilst maintaining the finish.
Ensure the surface is clean, dry and free from previous finishes and dust. Lightly sand new wood and clean old wood with Liberon Tough Deck Clean and Revive.
Stir well before use. Apply a generous coat of Decking Oil with a paint brush or roller. Allow to penetrate for 15 to 30 minutes then apply the second coat without waiting for the first to dry. Continue to apply more coats of Decking Oil until the timber no longer absorbs the oil. Wipe off any excess with a lint-free cotton cloth and allow to dry for 24 to 48 hours before using the decking.
Unless the hardwood is very absorbent, best results are achieved by wiping on the oil in very thin coats with a cloth. It is essential that any oil that has not been absorbed into the timber is wiped off thoroughly with a clean lint-free cloth. For new hardwoods, it is recommended to leave the wood exposed for up to 12 months before applying any finish. This allows the grain in the wood to open and breath and aids penetration and adhesion of the finish.
For a superior finish on hardwoods, we recommend using Liberon AQUA-STOP® Tough Deck Finish.
Important: Oil finishes bring out the natural colours of timber. A wet surface will be an indication of the final colour. Always test product on a spare surface or inconspicuous area for colour, compatibility and end result.
