Osmo Deck Oils protect, maintain and beautify wood decks, garden furniture, fences and gates and outdoor equipment. This finish leaves a smooth satin-matt surface, which is very water-resistant, dirt repellent and will not crack, flake, blister or peel. Maintaining the finish is easy too, simply apply an additional coat (no sanding required).

Osmo Deck Oils have very high coverage and are very easy to apply. Based on natural vegetable oils, the finish penetrates deeply into the wood, keeping it elastic and healthy and preventing it from drying and becoming brittle. Because the finish is micro-porous, the wood is allowed to breathe and this reduces overall shrinking and swelling of the wood. This finish conforms to German standards for resistance to cleaning materials, wine, beer, soft drinks, coffee, tea, fruit juices, milk and water etc.

Osmo Deck Oils are engineered to protect exotic species and domestic species equally well. If you wish to retain the original color of your wood we recommend you select the oil color closest to the color of your wood. Please note, Osmo’s Clear (Teak) Deck Oil does not protect against the UV-rays of the sun.

Osmo Deck Oils do not contain biocides or preservatives. They are safe for human, animal and plants when dry and comply with German DIN 53160 (fast to perspiration and saliva) and Euro Norm EN 71 (suitable for children’s toys.) The principle of Osmo to manufacture and supply only products which are safe and environmentally friendly during production as well as for application resulted in the successful certification according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2000 (quality management) and DIN EN ISO 14001 (environmental management) by the TÜV (Technical Control Board) Rhineland.

Surfaces treated with Osmo Deck Oils are simple to clean. Clean by using a cloth or brush and Osmo Wash and Care with water. If necessary, apply an additional coat of Osmo Deck Oil onto a clean, dry, frost-free surface.

Begin by making sure any pre-existing finish or mill glaze has been completely removed. Then sweep the surface with a sturdy broom or brush, removing settled dust and debris. Osmo Deck Oil is ready to use. Do not thin. Stir well. Using an Osmo brush or stiff quality natural brush, brush in a thin coat using a back and forth motion along the wood grain. New construction: If possible, apply on all sides of the wood prior to installation.

Use an Osmo brush or stiff quality natural brush to apply Osmo Deck Oil along edges and hard to reach areas. When finished, wipe off any excess with a clean cloth. Allow to dry for approximately 12 hours. Apply a second coat using the same method.

Re-application and restoration of Osmo Deck Oil is simple. On a clean, dry and frost-free surface, apply just one coat using the same method. When finished, wipe off any excess with a clean cloth.

Tip: If applied too thickly, this product may leave shiny areas. However, these shiny areas will weather naturally within a short period of time leaving an even, satin-matt appearance. If a satin finish is desired, apply one final coat of Osmo Clear Oil Wood Finish once thoroughly dry. This will also increase the durability of the finish.

Please note: Pre-treatment with Osmo Wood Reviver Power Gel is highly recommended for existing decking. It is customary to allow fresh timber a waiting period prior to finishing.
