biopin Boat Oil

bio pin Boat Oil has been developed from a traditional Scandinavian wood treatment technique. It contains a particularly weather resistant combination of linseed and tung oil. It is extremely resistant to seawater whilst maintaining its elasticity. bio pin Boat Oil penetrates deep into the wood and has excellent adhesion properties. If used properly it protects the wood for many years from UV light. Gloss finish.

Area of application

For treatment of wooden hulls, cabins, masts etc. where successive layers are required. Suitable for impregnating wooden decks, companionways, etc. In cases where a finishing coat is required, bio pin Boat Varnish should be applied. Only use bio pin Boat Varnish for prime coats on woods with good absorption properties prior to sealing surfaces.
