Always test on an off-cut of timber or an inconspicuous area of furniture to check colour and finish is as desired.
If the timber has been previously coated, remove the old coating with either Mylands Special De-waxing solution (for wax finishes) or paint and varnish remover (for lacquer finishes).
Clean, dry and sand the timber – ensuring all dust is removed.
Teak Oil may be applied using a clean, white, lint-free cotton cloth or brush.
Work the oil well into the wood, leave for up to 15 minutes before wiping off surplus. Failure to wipe off surplus will prevent penetration of subsequent coats and leave a sticky surface – if surface becomes sticky, remove stickiness with White Spirit, (09 899 9262,) and allow to dry before proceeding.
Leave for a 24 hours and repeat the process for the remaining coats. Minimum coats recommended is three, but more may be required depending on the condition and absorbency of the substrate.
A light rub over with 0000 grade wire wool or fine abrasive paper between coats will improve smoothness and feel of the finish. Use abrasive paper on exterior timber.
On average per litre 10-12 m2 - dependant on substrate absorbancy and method application.
Always replace the container lid, otherwise the oil could deteriorate.
Store at a temperature above 5°C.
Teak Oil should not normally require thinning, but if desired use White Spirit, Product code 09 899 9262.
Use White Spirit, (09 899 9262).
Wash brushes immediately after use before the oil dries.
