Surface & Environment
Where there is a high level of humidity and high temperatures, woods are subject to blue stain and mildew, as well as other pests which can affect the woods natural appearance and health. This is most common in exterior woods that are exposed to the elements. Osmo Colour Wood Protector (4006 Clear) has been specially designed to deal with these pests. By allowing the wood to breathe, moisture can evaporate, meaning shrinking and swelling is reduced.
