Livos Alis Decking Oil
This is a superb natural oil finish for exterior timber framing, furniture, panelling and decks. A penetrating finish that allows the timber to breath and is easy to maintain with an annual top up coat.
Suitable: for use on smoothly finished exterior timber windows, doors, panelling, furniture and decking.
Appearance: is an attractive natural looking finish, which comes in a range of tinted colours giving UV protection. Has a satin sheen initally which dulls to a matt finish in full sun conditions.
Colours are Boxwood, Oak, Teak, Chestnut and Black. View online here or purchase sample pots to trial colours on your timber
Odour: is a linseed smell which dissipates after a day.
Durability: is good. Recoat annually in full exposure to maintain good water repellancy and durability. Will not chip or peel and does not require sanding before recoating. Will last much longer in semi protected areas before requiring a maintenance coat.
Vapour Permeability: is excellent. This natural oil nourishes the timber but allows it to breath naturally. It does not form a surface film that will chip or peel.
