    Product Information


    Over time, your wood will lose its oils in the natural weathering process. Deks Olje D1 is a saturating wood oil which feeds your wood and replaces these vital lost oils. It enriches and stabilises the wood to provide long-lasting protection, giving a clear matt finish that enhances the natural beauty of the wood. 

    With the initial use, it will give revive the wood to a lovely golden colour - similar to the colour when it was first made. This however is short term, as soon enough the wood will mellow back to the beautiful silver hue that defines outdoor wooden furniture. 

    Deks Olje D1 also provides protection against humidity and UV ray damage.

    This product is orinigally manufactured through Owatrol Direct.

    Directions For Use


    Surfaces must first be clean, dry and free of dirt, grease, grime, mildew and previous coatings. Treat any mildew with a 50/50 bleach/water solution. Scrub the solution on to the surface and allow it to stand for 10-15 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly.

    After stripping and cleaning, allow the wood to dry for 2-3 good drying days before applying Deks Olje D1. D1 may only be applied to bare wood surfaces or a weathered wood surface that was previously ï¬nished with Deks Olje D1. All other finishes must be completely and thoroughly removed first. If necessary sand the surface after cleaning and/or stripping (100 grit paper).

    New wood

    Interior – Sand wood with 100 grit paper to open the pores, dust off and degrease the surface with methylated spirits.

    Exterior – Prepare as for interior wood and then neutralise with Net-Trol.

    New wood surfaces have a hard shiny surface called mill glaze that prevents maximum penetration and bonding of any finish; sanding or treating the wood with Aquanett removes this, ensuring maximum performance of the ï¬nish.

    Weathered wood surfaces (untreated)

    Clean weathered wood with Net-Trol, to remove the loose wood fibres, dirt and other surface contaminants. 

    Previously oiled surfaces

    All other oils or sealers must be completely and thoroughly removed and stripped surfaces neutralised with Net-Trol, before applying Deks Olje D1.

    Application tools

    Application of Deks Olje D1 saturating wood oil

    The secret of Deks Olje’s success lies in its saturation of the wood to bring about an even ‘matt sheen’ ï¬nish when dry. Start by applying Deks Olje D1 to an area that can be treated in about 15 minutes. As soon as the 1st application has penetrated (normally 15-30 minutes), apply a 2nd application. Then continue applying D1 ‘wet on wet’ until a uniform, overall saturation of the wood is achieved. The number of applications needed depends on the wood.

    DO NOT allow Deks Olje D1 to become dry or touch dry between applications. Leave the ï¬nal application for 30 minutes, then wipe over the surface to remove excess and puddled material with a rag soaked in Deks Olje D1 and rung out so that it is damp to the touch. If necessary occasionally ring out the cloth to keep it damp. It is important that as much D1 as possible is applied on the ï¬rst day.

    Deks Olje D1 must be kept ‘active’, this is done by the ‘wet on wet’ applications and the continual brushing over of the area, which assists and helps achieve maximum penetration. D1 has high penetration; its place is in the wood and not as a surface coating. Allow 3 days for D1 to set-up and dry, before use or in marine uses before putting the boat in service or continuing with Deks Olje D2. Temperature is of very little importance when applying D1.

    Clean Up

    Clean all tools and equipment with white spirits while still wet. If allowed to dry, remove with paint stripper. Wipe up any drips or runs immediately with a cloth soaked in white spirits. Dried Deks Olje D1 may be removed with Dilunett. Store and maintain equipment as directed by manufacturer.

    Note: Any rags, steel wool etc. soaked in D1 may spontaneously catch ï¬re if improperly discarded. Rags, steel wool etc. must be saturated with water after use or placed in a sealed, water ï¬lled metal container, before disposing of it with household waste.

    Maintenance

    Regular washing with Net-Trol will help to maintain the appearance of Deks Olje D1. It will gradually lighten over time due to exposure to the sun and UV rays. When the wood has lightened to a light grey colour, it is time for a maintenance application. Clean the surface with Net-Trol and then apply Deks Olje D1 until the wood is saturated and the ï¬nish restored, usually 1 or 2 applications will be sufï¬cient.
