Description: Natural House Deck Oil contains plant oils, wood rosin, and extracts, impregnated with refined waxes and micro earthen pigments. The oil also contains pine oil and eucalyptus oil to give it natural fungicidal properties. A semi transparent exterior timber finish formulated for softwoods and hardwoods such as kwila eucalyptus and jarrah. Available in fourteen colours, Exterior Oil can also be used on any lighter coloured timbers such as treated pine and macrocarpa (half tints are available on request). Feeds and protects against splitting, can be left to weather naturally if desired.
Note: While our oils will protect from checking and splitting (when used in accordance with recommended recoat periods) the lighter the pigment, the more noticeable a weathering appearance from UV light and natural occurring mould spores may occur. UV degredation and mould spore development can be extreme in NZ and varies greatly depending on your timber species and in which part of the country you live. Central Otago experiences little mould and more UV silvering, while Auckland and Northland have higher mould issues due to the rainfall and humidity. Please familiarise yourself with ‘Expectations on Managing Mould’.
