Owatrol is a company that takes extreme pride in its products and how they’re used. One of Owatrol’s many claims to fame is the fact that a number of Owatrol products maintain the Royal Yacht Britannia. Some of the main products that are used include Net-trol Wood Cleaner & Colour Restorer, Deks Olje D1, and Deks Olje D2.
Deks Olje D1
Deks Olje D1 is a very special product that boaters utilize intensively in numerous marine applications. This is because of its suitability for use below and above the waterline. Also it has amazing water repellent attributes. And, D1 is quite effective at replacing all the natural oils in the wood plus stripping and sanding are not necessary prior to application.
In addition, the product is completely transparent to enhance the natural wood grain. Therefore it imparts a beautiful matte finish to both hard and soft woods. Maintaining railings and decking annually just involves an easy process called “patch repair”. Keeping this up with Owatrol products adds to all of the inherent benefits of beautifully maintained wood.
Application of Deks Olje D2 is easy and simply requires making sure that the area is initially treated with either Owatrol Oil or Deks Olje D1 and is above the waterline. The resulting finish will include truly enhanced natural beauty and long-term protection.
Owatrol products maintain the Royal Yacht Britannia via the annual use of D1 for maintaining the teak decks. They also utilize it on the railings. Finally, application of Deks Olje D2 imparts a high-gloss finish on all of the railings and other teak. The best attribute is the fact that it is not a varnish but an oil. This gives it the ability of expanding and contracting along with the wood and it does not split.
This facilitates the maintenance of an impeccable finish. This is especially when you use it on an iconic vessel like the Royal Yacht Britannia.
