Kreidezeit Garden Furniture Oil is suitable for the first treatment of new untreated wooden garden furniture as well as maintenance.
Garden Furniture Oil is dirt- and water repellent and diffusible, thus it protects the wood from moisture and decay. When applied, it penetrates deep into the wood, freshens the colour and emphasises the wood grain.
Kreidezeit Garden Furniture oil is a natural product based on linseed and tung oil and should be applied in thin coats, ensuring there is no pooling of the oil on the surface of the wood.
Supplied in 500 ml tins.
Natural oils will affect the appearance of wood. We advise you carry out a trial area first to ensure the results are as desired.
Shake product briefly before application.
Apply Kreidezeit Garden Furniture Oil to untreated wood twice, allowing for drying between coats. The substrate may require sanding before applying the second coat. If using containers with different
batch numbers, mix and stir together prior to application.
The product must not be poured onto surfaces! Clean and dust down untreated substrates. Kreidezeit Garden Furniture Oil is ready for application undiluted.
Please note: garden furniture should be fitted with non-rusting metal screws and fittings, otherwise dark stains may appear after applying oil.
1. Initial sanding
Sand down new or weathered wood, rounding the edges. Do not use too fine a sandpaper as this will make the wood too dense and unable to absorb enough oil.
New, smooth, planed or finely pre-sanded wood should be rough sanded to ensure the oil can be absorbed. Dust down thoroughly after sanding.
2. First coat
Apply Kreidezeit Garden Furniture Oil evenly with a brush, cloth or sponge. After 10-20 minutes, thoroughly wipe the entire treated area with a dry, lint-free cloth until the surface has a uniform satin appearance.
Ensure that all un-absorbed oil has been completely removed, as otherwise shiny or sticky patches may remain. The oil must fully penetrate into the wood. It must not form a layer on the wood.
3. Re-sanding between coats (optional)
Re-sanding between coats is only required if the surface has dried rough, for example if wood fibres have dried proud of the surface. Use sand paper in the direction of the grain.
Dust down thoroughly after sanding.
4. Second coat
Repeat as per the first coat.
Coverage will range from 40 ml to 100 ml per m² per coat, depending on the absorbency of the wood.
