OSMO Natural Oil Wood Stains
Osmo Natural Oil Wood stain is a decorative, micro porous transparent wood stain for exterior timbers. It is especially suited for timber patio furniture, garage doors, timber decks, pergolas and other exterior trim. The finish is satin, and is extremely weather and UV resistant. It offers durable protection which will not crack, flake, peel or blister, and contains active ingredients to protect the finish against algae and mildew
Osmo's Natural Oils Wood stain is a transparent finish, 1 or 2 coat system, with a maintenance re-coat after approximately 9-12 months depending upon the timber's exposure. The number of initial coats depends upon the degree of transparency you require on the timber. One coat is quite transparent, but the protection level will not be as good as 2 coats, however, with 2 coats, the finish will not be as transparent.
Coverage is approximately 20-24 square metre's per litre, depending upon timber type. On extremely soft woods such as Pine, the coverage rate is a lot less than stated on the can.
Renovation is easy. Just apply 1 coat to the cleaned, dry and intact surface after 9-12 months depending upon the timber's exposure. Where the timber is fully protected from the sun and weather, a re coat may not be needed for 2-3 years.
