A penetrating and finishing oil, which deepens and enhances the natural grain of the timber. It is resistant to dirt and moisture. Suitable for exterior paneling, garden furniture, windows, sandpits, box framing, rafters, pergolas etc. Not to be used on alkaline surfaces, plaster, concrete or fibro-cement. If considering use on those materials a test-strip should be made to assess suitability.


Protects against weather and wood-destroying ultra-violet light. One to three coats are recommended depending on the absorbency of the timber. Box frames, timber windows, cladding, rear side and end grains must be treated


Prepare surface in accordance with AS 2311 Painting of Buildings. Wood and other surfaces should be wellsanded, dry and cleaned of greasy, waxy and dirty contaminants using BIO Thinner. Old coats must be removed. Hardwoods and other timbers rich in natural oils, waxes, acids and terpenes should be degreased using BIO Thinner, because these substances may mix with the oil and prolong its drying time.
For fungi and insect treatment use BIO WOOD PROTECTING BORAX. Before painting, wipe off the surplus of Borax with a damp cloth; otherwise surface residue may inhibit paint adhesion.


Stir thoroughly before use with a broad flat stirrer. Brush, roll or spray thinly and evenly working the oil well into the grain. Thick coats wrinkle when dry. Avoid bubbles. If necessary thin with BIO THINNER for hardwood application. Do not apply more oil than the surface can absorb. Remove excess oil with a dry, lint free cloth after approx. 1 - 2 hours. Lightly sand between coats if necessary with fine sandpaper. Allow 12 to 24 hours to dry between coats. Low temperatures and humid conditions prolong the drying time. Apply second and subsequent coats only after previous coat has thoroughly dried. Do not use below +10 C and or above 80% humidity or in cold damp conditions, or when condensation, rain, dew or frost is likely to occur. Provide adequate ventilation during application and drying. Reaches maximum durability after 8-14 days


Re-coating is recommended after approximately 12 - 24 months, depending on the exposure to the weather or to those areas seen to be necessary
