UV Protection-Oil Tint

 

428 CEDAR

UV-resistance: ★★★

Provides a harmonious and naturally darker shade of cedar.

Transparent, lightly pigmented and satin, natural oil based wood finish for exterior use. Microporous surface allows the wood to breathe and reduces swelling and shrinkage. Water-repellent surface will not crack, peel, flake or blister. As top coat on already colour treated wood, Osmo UV-Protection-Oil Tints prolongs the renovation intervals significantly. As a single product application, it blocks the greying process on vertical surfaces with a UV protection factor 12 in comparison to untreated wood when two coats are applied.

The finish contains active ingredients that prevent mould, algae and fungal attack. Without sanding, simply recoat. Easy and seamless application.

Finish stays workable while coating.

  • For ingredient-rich wood species (such as Cedar, Iroko, Teak, Mahogany etc.) - please allow minimum 12 weeks exposure in situ to the outside elements prior to application.
  • UV-Protection Oils are recommended only for vertically structured timber (drip angle min. 10º) to enable the rain to drip off rather than stay on the wood's surface for prolonged lengths of time.
  • Over application and/or low ventilation can increase the drying times.
  • The high-energy UV rays of the sun destroy the lignin in wood: it greys. Up to now, only wood finishes with colour pigments could possibly prevent this effect. With Osmo UV-Protection Oil, you have the possibility to protect your wood almost invisibly. UV-Protection Oil contains special ingredients that stall the greying effect by 12 times (UV factor 12). For a reliable UV protection, the wood finish must be applied more generously than other wood stains from Osmo.
  • Recommended application amount is approx. 55 ml/m².
  • So that no micro-organisms, like mould, algae or moss, can stick to a wood finish and cause unsightly discolourations, biocidal active ingredients for a superficial film protection can be added. Biocidal ingredients are fine-tuned exactly so that a harmful effect for people can be largely eliminated. Yet, many consumers prefer wood finishes without biocides, if it is not necessary. Therefore, Osmo also offers UV-Protection Oil without biocides (410 Clear).
  • Oak contains a high acid content within its natural tannins and as a result causes the timber to blacken during exposure to cold and moist environments - especially during the winter periods. More frequent care and maintenance is required, particularly in its first couple of years of exposure to the elements, to maintain its decorative appearance.
