DESCRIPTION: BIO Natural Timber Oil interior/exterior is
designed for Timber Decks and outdoor furniture, exterior
panelling, windows, sandpits, box framing, rafters, pergolas etc.
As an alternative to PU and Epoxy finishes. Made from renewable
materials like plant oils and resins. They are gentle to the
environment. Eco friendly, natural and non toxic. Penetrating and
finishing oil, which deepens and enhances the natural grain of the
timber. It is resistant to dirt and moisture. Suitable for;
exterior panelling, garden furniture, windows, sandpits, box
framing, rafters, pergolas, etc. Not to be used on alkaline
surfaces, plaster, concrete or fibro-cement. If considering use on
those materials a test-strip should be made to assess
PROTECTION: Protection against weather and
wood-destroying ultra-violet light. One to three coats are
recommended depending on the absorbency of the timber. Box frames,
timber windows, cladding and end grains must be treated BEFORE
INSTALLATION. It is also good practice to prime all back
PREPARATION: Prepare surface in accordance with AS 2311
Painting of Buildings. Do not apply coatings to unseasoned or wet
timber. Round off sharp edges. Wood and other surfaces should be
well sanded, dry and cleaned of greasy, waxy and dirty contaminants
using BIO Thinner. Imperfect coats may require complete stripping
before applying BIO products. Hardwoods and other timbers rich in
natural oils, waxes, acids and terpenes should be degreased using
BIO Thinner, because these substances may mix with the oil and
prolong its drying time.
PRIMING: For fungi and insect treatment use BIO
WOOD PROTECTING BORAX. Before painting, wipe off the surplus of
Borax with a damp cloth; otherwise surface residue may inhibit
paint adhesion. Decks: Prior to painting – allow new timber
to weather for 4-6 weeks. During this time tannins and resins can
leach out, and then wipe down with BIO Thinner. For better adhesion
sand with grit 90 sandpaper.
APPLICATION: Stir thoroughly before use with a broad flat
stirrer. First coat may be tinned down by 20% with Bio Thinner.
Brush, roll or spray thinly and evenly working the oil well into
the grain. Maintain a wet edge when painting. Thick coats wrinkle
when dry. Avoid bubbles. If necessary thin with BIO THINNER for
hardwood application. Do not apply more oil than the surface can
absorb. Remove excess oil with a dry, lint free cloth after approx.
1 - 2 hours. Lightly sand between coats if necessary with fine
sandpaper. Allow 12 to 24 hours to dry between coats. Low
temperatures and humid conditions prolong the drying time. Apply
second and subsequent coats only after previous coat has thoroughly
dried. Do not use below +10 C and or above 80% humidity, in cold
damp conditions, when condensation, rain, dew or frost are likely
to occur or hot days, direct sunlight and hot surfaces. Provide
adequate ventilation during application and drying. Reaches maximum
durability after 8-14 days.
RE-COATING: Re-coating is recommended after approximately
12 - 24 months, depending on the exposure to the weather or to
those areas seen to be necessary.
