UV-Protection Oils are recommended only for vertically structured timber (drip angle min. 10º) to enable the rain to drip off rather than staying 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 color 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 reliable UV protection, the wood finish must be applied more generously than other wood stains from Osmo.
The recommended application amount is approx. 55 ml/m².
So that no micro-organisms, like mold, algae, or moss, can stick to a wood finish and cause unsightly discolorations, biocidal active ingredients for superficial film protection can be added. Biocidal ingredients are fine-tuned exactly so that a harmful effect for people can be largely eliminated.
Oak contains 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 are required, particularly in its first couple of years of exposure to the elements, to maintain its decorative appearance.
Many wood species contain water-soluble colored extractives which may leach out naturally when weathered.
