How to use
Suitable surfaces Untreated, pressure treated and oiled hard and soft woods for exterior applications. See also: Areas of Application. In the case of untreated tropical woods, test tolerance on small area and/or ask supplier.
Surface requirements The surface must be dry and free of dust and grease.
Application Apply with paint brush, block brush, floor brush, etc. Avoid direct sunlight. Only use if temperature is above 8° C.
Thinner The oil comes ready for use. If necessary use bio pin Thinner.
Preparation Apply thin and even layer of Terrace Oil in the direction of wood grain. Remove excess oil after approx. 15 min. or distribute on treated area with coating tool. Avoid formation of ’puddles’ or layers of oil on wooden surfaces. Repeat these processing steps 1-3 times depending on absorbency of surface. Leave wood to dry for several hours before applying next coat.
Restoration Clean old surfaces thoroughly with brush and water or high pressure cleaner. Leave wood to dry well. Strip extremely grey wood or pre-treat with biopin Teakwood Brightener and sand lightly if necessary if surface feels rough. Then apply 1-3 layers of Terrace Oil as described under New Coat.
How to use Only apply thin layers of Terrace Oil to avoid highly glossy and slippery patches. Risk of skidding in wet conditions. Wood care treatment should be repeated at least once a year depending on degree of weathering.
