How to use: Ensure the wood surface is bare: remove any wax finishes with Liberon Wax and Polish Remover and any varnish finishes with Liberon Fine Wood Stripper. Clean, dry and ensure the surface is dust free.
Application: Apply Liberon Teak Oil either by brush or using a lint-free cotton cloth. Leave the oil to penetrate for up to 15 minutes, then wipe off the excess with a clean lint-free cloth. Failure to do so will prevent penetration of future coats and leave a sticky surface.
Apply additional coats as above, the number of coats required will depend on how dry or damaged the wood is. Always leave a 24 hour interval between coats and allow the last coat to fully harden before use. We recommend a minimum of 3 coats on internal and external timbers. For best results, gently rub with Liberon Ultra Fine Steel Wool (0000) or extra fine abrasive paper between coats. Use the abrasive paper when working on outdoor furniture.
Important: Oil finishes bring out the natural colours of timber. A wet surface will be an indication of the final color. Always test product on a spare surface or inconspicuous area for color, compatibility and end result.
Cleaning & maintenance: Surfaces may be cleaned using a damp cloth and spills should be wiped up immediately. For stubborn stains a mild detergent can be used. Surfaces need to be re-oiled once a year or more, depending upon usage. Oiled external timber will need regular maintenance. Apply Teak Oil once or twice a year (or as necessary) to maintain protection.
Precautions Â· Store Liberon Teak Oil at a temperature above 5 Â°C. Always replace the lid otherwise the oil can deteriorate.
Â· Oily cloths can self combust. Do not leave impregnated cloths in bundles. Before discarding lay them flat outside to dry to avoid a fire hazard.
Â· Teak Oil is not suitable for use on external oak. Liberon Pure Tung Oil is recommended for this purpose.
Â· If the excess is not removed and the surface becomes sticky, wipe with white spirit to remove the sticky film and allow to dry before continuing.
