- Blend of pure tung oil and linseed oil.
- Nourishes and enhances the natural beauty of hard exotic / oily woods.
- Added UV filters minimise fading from sunlight, ideal for use on garden furniture.
- Finishes and protects interior and exterior woodwork.
- Produces a hard-wearing satin finish.
Ensure the wood surface is bare: remove any wax finishes with Libéron Wax and Polish Remover and any varnish finishes with Libéron Fine Wood Stripper. Clean, dry and ensure the surface is dust free.
Apply Libéron Teak Oil either by brush or using a lint-free cotton cloth. Leave the oil to penetrate for up to 15 minutes, then wipe off the excess with a clean lint-free cloth. Failure to do so will prevent penetration of future coats and leave a sticky surface. Apply additional coats as above, the number of coats required will depend on how dry or damaged the wood is. Always leave a 24h interval between coats and allow the last coat to fully harden before use. We recommend a minimum of 3 coats on internal and external timbers. For best results, gently rub with Libéron Ultrafine Steel Wool (grade 0000) or extra fine abrasive paper between coats. Use the abrasive paper when working on outdoor furniture.
- Store Libéron Teak Oil at a temperature above 5°C. Always replace the lid otherwise the oil can deteriorate.
- CAUTION: risk of self-combustion. Wet with water any textiles or tools soiled with the product and dispose of them in a tightly closed container.
- If the excess is not removed and the surface becomes sticky, wipe with white spirit to remove the sticky film and allow to dry before continuing.
- Teak Oil is not suitable for use on external oak. Libéron Pure Tung Oil is recommended for this purpose.
- Maintenance: surfaces may be cleaned using a damp cloth and spills should be wiped up immediately. For stubborn stains a mild detergent can be used. Surfaces need to be re-oiled once a year or more, depending upon usage. Oiled external timber will need regular maintenance. Apply Teak Oil once or twice a year (or as necessary) to maintain protection.
- Important: oil finishes bring out the natural colours of timber. A wet surface will be an indication of the final colour. Always test product on a spare surface or inconspicuous area for colour, compatibility and end result.
- Remove as much of the oil as possible from the tools after use. Do not dispose of residues and washing water/solvents in the sink, toilet, sewer, bin, etc., in order to avoid discharge into the environment.
