OSMO meets the demands for wooden decking

Osmo UK, the eco-friendly wood and finishes expert, offers a range of decking oils to protect and maintain the beauty and quality of exterior decking. The product range provides resistance against water and dirt, while also offering an appealing satin oil-based protective finish.

Made from natural plant oils, organic pigments and water-repellent additives, the micro-porous finish allows the wood to breathe, a factor that is essential for exterior wood. The eco-friendly ingredients help to regulate the wood’s moisture content, reducing swelling or shrinking, whilst enhancing the natural characteristics of the wood. The finish also prevents the wood from cracking, flaking, peeling or blistering. Available in range of 10 different shades and one clear Teak-Oil, there is a Decking Oil to complement and protect a number of wood species, including Bangkirai, Cedar, Douglas Fir and Oak.

To apply, simply brush the oil onto a clean, dry surface using a stiff bristle brush. For a quick and easy application, we recommend using an Osmo 150mm Floor Brush, which is designed for decking applications, allowing the user to apply the finish while standing. The product is ready to use from the tin, without the need for it to be thinned. For best results, it is recommended to apply two coats. For a less intensive colour and the added benefit of an anti-slip protection, use Osmo’s Anti-Slip Decking Oil for the second coat. Please allow around 12 hours for the drying period.

For future maintenance, no sanding is necessary; simply recoat the surface when required.
