Uula Wood Oil – For oiling exterior wood surfaces
Uula Wood Oil is a traditional treatment oil for exterior wood surfaces made with cold pressed and boiled linseed oil. It is designed for new and old untreated wood as well as surfaces treated with products that do not form a membrane or hard coating that might prevent the absorption of the oil. It is ideal for log walls and weather boarding, terraces, decking, jetties, wooden stairs and banisters, wooden furniture and boats. It can also be used on impregnated wood. The number of coats changes the gloss level of the coating.
Uula Wood Oil is available clear as well as tinted to the translucent colours on the Uula Traditional Colour Chart. When choosing colours please take into account the colour of the surface to be treated. The roughness of the surface, the variety of wood and previous treatments affect the final colour. The final colour is achieved when the surface has dried fully. We recommend making a colour sample on a separate but similar piece of wood before commencing the work.
Coverage: Smooth planed surface 10 m2/l, rough sawn surface 6 m2/l.
Thinner: Uula Oil Paint Thinner
Cleaning of tools: With Uula Universal Thinner, water and soap straight after finishing the work.
Storage and care for the environment: Store in dry and cool conditions out of reach of children. The product is liable to freezing. Empty, clean and dry tins can be recycled. Any liquid waste must be taken to a hazardous waste collection point.
Emissions: Contains a maximum of 700g/litre of volatile organic compounds (VOC).
The surface to be treated must be dry, (moisture content less than 15 %, relative air humidity less than 80 %) and the temperature a minimum of +10°c. The treated surface is touch dry in an hour and ready for re-treating in approximately 4 hours. Dense or newly planed wood absorbs the oil more slowly and it takes longer to dry.
Always stir the decking oil thoroughly before and during treatment. Mix a big enough batch in a separate container for large continuous surfaces to avoid possible variation in shade. Also treat open ends of timber thoroughly. Do not use in the rain or in direct sunlight. Do not treat surfaces heated by the sun.
