Textured deck oil can be applied over existing Rustins deck oils and can also be used over existing oil based finishes but test for compatibility a small area first, If applying over the top of other branded oils Rustins nor Southern Timber can be held responsible for any incompatibilities. Timber must be clean, smooth, dry, and free of dust and contaminants. Do not apply to damp timber as this will prevent the oil from penetrating the timber and adhering causing it to flake off and residual moisture in the timber may result in mould growth between the oil and timber surfaces. Hardwood species may need a clean with white spirit before treatment, if in doubt please check first.
Coverage is approximately 12 – 14 square metres per litre per 1 coat, to achieve the low slip potential of BS7976 three coats must be applied, so a 2.5 litre tin should cover an area of approximately 10-11.7 square metres. Ensure the product is well stirred before use, apply liberally with a clean brush allowing 4-8 hours between coats. Do not apply if rain is expected, Each coat should be applied at 90º to each other to ensure an even spread of the slip resistant particles in the oil.
Periodic re-oiling should be carried out as required. When applying to previously oiled wood the surface should be cleaned thoroughly and be free from contaminants. Any flaking or peeling edges need to removed to provide uniform join between the old and new oils.
Clean brushes with white spirit or Brush Cleaner whilst still wet. Hard brushes can be cleaned with Brush Restorer. Tins of oil can be stored for many years if stored in original, tightly closed container in cool, dry place.
