Liberon Decking Oil is ideal for feeding, protecting and enhancing the natural beauty of most types of timber decking. It is perfect for reviving and restoring colour to old or new decking and is suitable for use on fences, garden sheds, gates and hot tubs etc. Containing UV filters it helps reduce discolouration and fading from the sun, whilst maintaining the finish.
Oil finishes bring out the natural colour of the timber. A wet surface will be an indication of the final colour and will not lighten when dry. Always test product on a spare surface or inconspicuous area for colour, compatibility and end result. Old or exposed decking will darken more than new and will not return to its original colour. Any unevenness in colour prior to application will be highlighted with oil finishes. Coloured oils will add a tint which will deepen the colour further.

Apply a generous coat of decking oil with a brush, roller or spray gun. Allow to penetrate for 15 to 30 minutes then apply the second coat without waiting for the first to dry. Continue to apply more coats of Decking Oil until the timber no longer absorbs the oil. Wipe off any oil that has not been absorbed into the timber with a lint-free cotton cloth and allow to dry for 24 to 48 hours before using the decking.
Best results are achieved by wiping on the oil in very thin coats with a cloth. It is essential that any unabsorbed oil is wiped off thoroughly with a clean lint-free cloth. for new hardwoods, it is recommended to leave the wood exposed for up to 12 months before applying any finish. This allows the grain to open and breathe and aids penetration of the finish.
