How To Apply WOCA Exterior Oil

#1 - Cleaning

Scrub the soaked wood along the wood grain until the wood appears clean. Repeat the cleaning if necessary. Carefully wash down the surface with water and remove any loose crisps with a stiff brush. Leave the wood to dry for approx. 24 hours. The wood must be completely dry before an oil treatment. If Remove rising fibers with sandpaper if necessary.

Tip: In case of extreme dirt, the Exterior Cleaner may be used undiluted.

#2 - Application

Stir the WOCA Exterior Oil thoroughly before use. Apply an even thin coat of oil with theWOCA Oil Applicatoror a brush. Treat the end grain wood first.

The oil is cream-colored, when it is wet. It may take a few minutes, until the wood gets an oily appearance, as the water has to evaporate first.

Make the application in dry weather only. Avoid direct sunlight and high temperatures.

#3 - Final Polishing

If necessary, wipe off any excess oil with clean cotton cloths after no more than 5 minutes. It is important to remove excess oil from joints and grooves. Repeat the process in case the wood does not appear saturated.

When the wood is dry, it may be polished with a polishing pad or polishing machine to ensure an extra hard-wearing surface. It takes 24 to 48 hours for the oil to harden completely, depending on weather conditions and outdoor temperature.
