Lightly pigmented and satin, natural oil-based and microporous finish which does not crack, flake, peel or blister. Water and dirt resistant, moisture regulating and reduces wood swelling and shrinkage. External elements of weathering fade the natural colour of the wood to a grey patina over time - Osmo UV Protection Oil Tints has been developed to resist against this, whilst adding a tinted colour of your choice to the wood's natural appearance. Ideal for windows, doors, cladding, fencing and other vertically structured joinery to block the greying process of the wood by a UV-protected factor of 12 in comparison to untreated wood.
Osmo UV Protection Oil Tints is ideal for all vertical wood surfaces in outdoor areas: doors, windows, window shutters (dimensionally stable elements), carports, timber cladding, balconies, fences, pergolas, and summer houses (dimensionally unstable elements). Also suitable for bamboo poles (e.g. in screens).
Wood surface must be clean, dry and frost-free (moisture content max. 20%). Osmo UV Protection Oil Tints is ready to use, please do not thin. Stir well before use.
If possible, please apply first coat to all sides before installation. For renovation works, clean old microporous stains thoroughly – if necessary sand lightly. Clean and restore already greyed or weathered wood at the same time with Osmo Wood Reviver Power-Gel. Old paints and lacquers must be completely removed. As a general rule, wear a dust mask during sanding works. Do not sand smooth surfaces finer than grit P120. The finished surface is influenced by several factors,
including the natural characteristics of wood. Therefore, a trial application is always required, especially for unfamiliar surfaces. Fresh, especially hardwood rich in extractives needs to weather off for approximately 6 weeks after installation. Thereby the wood becomes absorbent and the oil finish adheres optimally. If additional protection against blue stain, rot and insects is desired, pre-treat the wood if possible on all sides with Osmo WR Base Coat.
With Osmo Flat Brush or Osmo Microfibre Roller, apply thinly along the wood grain and spread well. Depending on the degree of weathering, apply one coat of Osmo UV-Protection-Oil Tints to the cleaned and intact finish after approx. 2-3 years. To achieve the UV protection factor 12, it is necessary to apply 2 coats of Osmo UV-Protection-Oil Tints.
