Description: Highest quality, transparent oil preservative for all exterior timbers, such as house cladding, decks and weatherboards, pergolas, lattice, railings, fencing and posts. Added UV protection with minimal colour change to the timber. Finest ingredients … tung oil, waxes, micro earthen pigments, eucalyptus oil and pharmaceutically refined Isoparafin. 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 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’.
