Garden furniture, terraces, stairs and jetties.
Colourless. Tinted to the colours in Valtti colour card.
5-7 m2/l on old and worn wood surface
7-15 m2/l on new surface and wood surface in good condition
Brush or sponge.
Drying time at 23°C and 50% relative air humidity
Touch-dry after a few hours under normal conditions.The porosity of the substrate and the amount of oil used affect the drying time. The second coat can be applied as soon as the oil is absorbed into wood or the surface is dry, normally approx. after few hours.
We recommend to use a tinted product, because it has better resistance against weathering than a colourless product.
Maintenance treatment to be done when necessary. Surfaces exposed to continuous weathering may need to be treated annually.
1.0 kg/l, ISO 2811.
Keep from freezing. Badly closed or short cans and/or tinted products do not withstand long storage. Tinted products should be used during the same painting season.
The surface to be treated must be dry and the moisture content of the wood must be below 20 %, because wet wood does not absorb oil and oil dries slowly. As impregnated wood is often damp, we recommend it to be treated after about 6 months from the installation.
During treatment and drying the temperature of the air must be at least +5ºC, and the relative humidity of the air below 80%.
Remove dirt, dust and loose material from the wood surface. Wash dirty wood surface with Terassi- ja Kalustepesu according to instructions.
Previously with wood oil treated surface:
Remove loose material with scraper and/or wire brush. Clean dirty wood surface with Terassi- ja Kalustepesu according to instructions, if needed. If a clear film remains on the surface, remove it before treatment.
Stir Valtti Wood Oil Akva thoroughly before use and frequently during application. Spread one coat tightly with a brush or a sponge so that the oil is absorbed evenly into the wood. Normally one coat is enough, but a porous wood might need two coats. Spread evenly the entire length of the board in continuous strokes to avoid overlapping. Apply one coat on garden furniture. Porous wood might need two coats. When treating jetties take care that the oil does not end up in the water. The second coat can be applied as soon as the oil is absorbed and the surface is dry, after few hours, depending on the weather conditions. Oil treatment makes the wood look darker.
Carry out maintenance when necessary. Surfaces continuously exposed to the weather may need to be treated annually.
Cleaning of tools
Wash the tools with soap and water or Tikkurila Pensselipesu (Tool Cleaner).
Handle a new surface with care for approx. 1 week so that the product achieves its final hardness and durability. The surface can be cleansed lightly with a soft brush or mop after approx. 2 days from the treatment, if necessary.
Dirty surface can be washed with Pihan Huoltopesu (1 part of Pihan Huoltopesu into 10 parts of water). Clean stains and very dirty surfaces with a stronger solution of Pihan Huoltopesu (1:1). After washing rinse with water and let dry.
