|Application conditions||The surface to be treated must be dry and relative wood moisture content less than 20 %, as damp wood will not absorb oil, which dries slowly. As impregnated wood is often damp, we recommend treatment after a 6-month drying period. |
The surface to be painted, the paint and the air temperature must be at least +5°C, and relative humidity below 80% during painting and drying
|Preparation||Untreated surfaces: |
Remove all dirt, dust and loose material from the surface. Wash dirty wood surface with
Terassi- ja Kalustepesu according to instructions.
Surfaces previously treated with wood oil:
Remove loose material from the surface with a scraper or wire brush. Wash dirty wood surface with Terassi- ja Kalustepesu according to instructions. If a clear film remains on the surface, remove it before treatment. Allow the surface to dry, as moist wood does not absorb oil, which dries slowly in damp conditions.
|Treatment||Reserve sufficient amount of the product from the same batch for one uniform surface. Stir Valtti Furniture and Decking Oil thoroughly before and frequently during use. Apply one coat of oil tightly by brush, spray or sponge so that all the oil is absorbed into the wood. Wipe off eventual excessive oil. To avoid overlapping, apply two thin coats of oil in continuous strokes to cover the whole surface evenly. One application is usually enough for exterior furniture. Porous wood may need two coats. When treating jetties take care that the oil does not end up in the water. Apply the second coat as soon as the surface is dry, after some hours depending on the weather. Every oil treatment will make the wood colour darker.|
|Cleaning of tools||White Spirit 1050 or Tikkurila Pensselipesu (Tool Cleaner).|
|Maintenance instructions||After application, treat the surface carefully for the first week to allow it to harden completely. After two days, gently clean the surface with a soft brush or mop if necessary. |
Clean dirty surfaces with Pihan Huoltopesu (1 part Pihan Huoltopesu to 10 parts water). Remove stains and clean very dirty surfaces with a stronger solution of Pihan Huoltopesu (1:1). After washing, rinse the surfaces and allow to dry.
|Maintenance treatment||For maintenance treatment you can also use colourless Valtti Wood Oil if you wish the surface not to be darker. Carry out maintenance if necessary. Surfaces continuously exposed to the weather may need to be treated annually.|
