Ecowoodoil's Garden Furniture Oil is a low sheen preserving oil designed as a maintenance medium for the enhancement of timber’s natural character and to guard against exposure, degradation and rot.

Unlike many other products, it actually penetrates the timber substrate to nourish, preserve and seal. Unlike our Natural Decking Oil, it does not contain oxides, which may rub off on clothing.

It is ideal for Timber Garden Furniture, Spa Panelling, Shutters/Louvres, and Joinery (under verandah protection). It is also recommended for internal wet-areas, where dampness and mould need to be addressed.

   
COLOURS:

Clear - A transparent finish to show off the natural tones of your timber.

Gold Teakwood Enhancer - Enhanced with UV rated wood dyes to provide a longer time between applications.

Red Hardwood Enhancer - Enhanced with UV rated wood dyes to provide a longer time between applications.

 
   
SIZES:

500ml, 1 litre and 2 litre Cans

   

APPLICATION:

KEY APPLICATION TIP: Apply two (2) coats to raw wood - the 1st application to all accessible surfaces, and the 2nd only to the outer surfaces that are exposed to weather. Remember to always rub in/rub off any excess oil after every application.

STAINING: Ecowoodoil’s standard “CLEAR” Garden Furniture Oil will give a light wet-look to the existing state of your timber (wet your timber with water to get an idea of the finished look). The “GOLD TEAKWOOD” enhancer is best for teak, pine, blonde hardwoods etc.The "RED HARDWOOD” enhancer is best for kwila, merbau, jarrah, cedar etc. The two Enhancer options seek to emphasise the original colour and restore colour that has been weathered out. DO NOT add further pigments/colourants.
NOTE: Some red hardwoods (notably Jarrah & Kwila) undergo deep-reddening in colour over time. To reduce/lighten this occurrence consider our "GOLD TEAKWOOD" option. You may also consider "RED HARDWOOD" enhancer on teak, pine, blonde hardwoods etc; to provide a light, red cedar result.

PREPARATION: See our "How to Guides" for preparing Brand New Timbers and Weathered Timbers prior to Oiling.

MAINTENANCE: Lightly wash as seen to be necessary, and apply 1 (one) coat (clothed in) every 3-6 months. For less frequent maintenance cycles, we suggest choosing either the Gold Teakwood or Red Hardwood Enhancer colour options, as these will provide longer fade-resistance and surface aesthetics.

CLEAN UP: with warm soapy water or Gum Turpentine.

COVERAGE: These estimates are quoted in square metres per litre. Actual Coverage will depend on the type of timber and its preparation. Bear in mind that unnecessarily using too much oil not only costs you more but could also lead to a tacky finish and possible whitening when moisture contacts excess oil residues.

TEAK Garden Furniture: It is a fallacy that exposed teak should be left untreated to go silver (then green, and black). Teak is globally renowned principally due to its high oil content, and left untreated those vital oils/nutrients are weathering out (washing the raw wood with aggressive cleaners will exacerbate this nutrient stripping).
