Important tips Always do a test application on an inconspicuous area to check the compatibility with the existing coating and the previously applied polishes or maintenance products, or the coverage or color to establish. There should be no oil film on the surface after the application, and when there is, please remove immediately with a lint free cloth. Please treat strongly weathered exterior areas, such as porch floorings or wooden fences only when the wood is completely dry. As the moisture content of Bangkirai and teak decreases very slowly, these kinds of wood should be treated during a dry weather period only.



ALIS Decking Oil is also suitable for toys. In the exterior, a last treatment of KALDET Penetrating Wood Stain No. 270 in the right colortone is recommended.
