If your sign is starting to look aged, give it a quick sand down and re-coat with our sign restoration oil to give it a new lease of life.
15ml UV-Protection-Oil Extra is a satin-matt, clear finish for exterior application. It is natural oil based and micro-porous, and does not crack, flake, peel or blister. When used as a finish on wood UV-Protection-Oil Extra prolongs the renovation time significantly and blocks the greying process by UV-Protection factor 12 in comparison to untreated wood. To freshen up simply apply a further coat onto the dry, clean surface (no sanding – no dust).
UV-Protection-Oil Extra is water and dirt resistant. It is moisture regulating and reduces swelling and shrinking of the wood. UV-Protection-Oil Extra has a large coverage, is easy to apply and easy to maintain. Oil enhances the natural tone of wood (wet look). UV-Protection-Oil Extra is based on natural vegetable oils. Natural oils penetrate deeply into the wood, keeping it elastic and healthy, and preventing it from drying and becoming brittle. The wood is allowed to breathe. Moisture can evaporate. Shrinking and swelling are reduced.
Wood surface must be clean, dry and frost-free. Fungal decay and algae on old wood surfaces can easily be removed with Osmo Gard Clean* (Green Growth Remover) (* Use biocides safely!)
Methods of application:
UV-Protection-Oil is ready to use. Please do not thin – stir well. Apply with stiff brush (Osmo Natural Bristle Brush) or Osmo Microfibre Roller thinly and evenly along wood grain. Allow extra ventilation when applying in enclosed spaces. When used as a complete finish apply second coat after drying.
approx. 12 hours (dust dry in approx. 4 hours). Allow extra ventilation when applying in enclosed spaces.
Depending on the level of weathering apply 1 coat of UV-Protection-Oil Extra after approx. 2 – 3 years on the cleaned and intact finish. In general, one has to take a shorter renovation time into account when surfaces are exposed to extreme weathering and surfaces where water cannot drain (horizontal surfaces). For some timber species, which have water-soluble ingredients (e.g. Oak or Idigbo), and in some extreme locations the finish may require re-coating more regularly to maintain the unique protection qualities of this product. If, however, the greying process has already begun revive the surface with Wood Reviver and re-apply with 2 coats of the UV-Protection-Oil Extra.
Damage caused during installation (fixing holes/cut edges) and other surface damages e.g. crack should be treated immediately with two coats. These areas will grey quickly if left untreated.
