Deks Olje #1 Teak Oil - wood oil varnish
Deks Olje #1 Teak Oil
The Deks Olje timber treatment has long been popular in the Scandinavian regions and it has been found to be extremely capable in New Zealand climatic conditions.
The first preparation is with Deks Olje No.1 which is in a matt (Deks Olje No.1) followed by the gloss (Deks Olje No.2) top finish.
The method of application is to use the Deks Olje No.1 wet on wet until the timber is absolutely saturated. If a matt finish is required then just use #1, It has the consistency of mineral turps and so may be easily applied by rag, brush or roller. However leaving a matt finish provides little protection for U.V. rays, so it will lose its' coating in 6-9 months, or on land 12-18 months (depending on sun intensity).
For best protection, follow with Deks Olje No.2 - a semi-gloss finish that has the U.V. inhabitants and protects your surface best
This ease of application tends to follow, that you touch up weathered areas more often, rather than with conventional varnish where a small dent or knock necessitates taking the entire surface back, the Deks Olje simply requires a light touch up on the effected area.
Even if the wood is badly affected the Deks Olje system gives amazing results.
