UV-PROTECTION OIL TINTS

 

TINTED UV PROTECTIVE FINISH

All exterior woods grey into a patina colour over time, however UV-Protection Oil Tints have been developed to maintain the wood's natural colour with the use of pigments to optimally match the wood's natural characteristics.

Ideal for windows, doors, cladding, fencing and other vertically structured joinery (not recommended for flat surfaces such as decking).

Natural oil-based and microporous finish does not crack, flake, peel or blister. Water and dirt resistant, moisture regulating and reduces wood swelling and shrinkage.

TIPS


  • For ingredient rich wood species (such as Cedar, Iroko, Teak, Mahogany etc.) - please allow minimum 12 weeks exposure in situ to the outside elements prior to application.
  • UV-Protection Oils are recommended only for vertically structured timber (drip angle min. 10º) to enable the rain to drip off rather than remain on the wood's surface for prolonged lengths of time.
  • Over application and/or low ventilation can increase the drying times.
  • The high-energy UV rays of the sun destroy the lignin in wood: it greys. Up to now, only wood finishes with colour pigments could possibly prevent this effect. With Osmo UV-Protection Oil, you have the possibility to protect your wood almost invisibly. UV-Protection Oil contains special ingredients that stall the greying effect by 12 times (UV factor 12). For a reliable UV protection, the wood finish must be applied more generously than other wood stains from Osmo.
  • Recommended application amount is approx. 55 ml/m².
  • So that no micro-organisms, like mould, algae or moss, can stick to a wood finish and cause unsightly discolourations, biocidal active ingredients for a superficial film protection can be added. Biocidal ingredients are fine-tuned exactly so that a harmful effect for people can be largely eliminated. Yet, many consumers prefer wood finishes without biocides, if it is not necessary. Therefore, Osmo also offers UV-Protection Oil without biocides (410 Clear).
  • Oak contains a high acid content within its natural tannins and as a result causes the timber to blacken during exposure to cold and moist environments - especially during the winter periods. More frequent care and maintenance is required, particularly in its first couple of years of exposure to the elements, to maintain its decorative appearance.

NOT RECOMMENDED

  • Green Oak moisture content is often above the maximum 20% recommended.
  • Idigbo contains yellow dyes which leaches when the wood becomes wet and stains when in contact within iron.
  • Flat surfaces such as decking, window sills, garden tables, seats, benches and other joinery whereby rain is able to remain on the surface for long periods of time.
  • Other woods treated with a varnish, lacquer or other surface coatings must be completely sanded before use.
