Osmo UV Protection Oils are clear, UV rated oils for new timber joinery, pergolas, trellis, timber garden furniture and planter boxes etc. They are not suitable for timber decking.
The finishes are UV Protection Oil 410 and UV Protection Oil - Extra 420.
The 410 has a low satin sheen, and is biocide free, which means it can be used internally on timbers such as window frames, french doors etc. It can also be used outdoors on items such as timber garden furniture, where food may be present.
The 420 has a higher satin finish, and contains biocides. These "Extra" ingredients help fight mould and fungal attack. The 420 should only be used on external timber surfaces where food will not be present. The UV resistance is the same for the 410 and 420.
UV Protection Oils are not suitable for use on horizontal "walk on" surfaces such as decks, as the finish can become quite slippery when wet.
On a 2 coat application, the UV Protection Oils block the greying process of the timber by a UV protection factor of 12, when compared with untreated timber. This is a similar principle to the SPF system of sunscreens we use on ourselves.
In New Zealand, due to the high UV light we have, the clear UV Protection Oils have a lifespan of 6-9 months in fully exposed weather conditions, and 12-18 months in areas that are weather protected. For longer protection, we recommend using one of the tinted UV Oils, which are available in 6 colour tones. Please click here for further details.
Osmo UV Protection Oils are water and dirt resistant, and are moisture regulating - reducing swelling and shrinkage of the timber.
Easy to apply and maintain, the oil highlights the natural tones of the timber by giving it a "wet look".

Oils are heavy and expensive to transport around the country - especially across Cook Strait.
For the most efficient and quickest shipping, we use NZ Couriers which is an overnight delivery service throughout NZ (except rural). Freight charges on the web site are based on NZ Couriers pricing per package delivered to your door.
If you would prefer a cheaper freight option, we can use Castle Parcels for long haul and inter island deliveries. Delivery time is generally 3-4 business days. Please phone our office on 09 575 9849 for a Castle Parcels freight quote if you would prefer to use this service.
Orders can be collected from Natural Oils' warehouse at 218H Marua Road, Mt Wellington, Auckland. Warehouse hours are variable, but are generally 9:00am - 2:00pm weekdays. Please phone (09) 575 9849 before calling, to ensure the warehouse will be open when you wish to collect.
Goods are generally shipped to the buyer on same, or next business day via “Track and Trace” couriers. Courier costs are calculated on the weight, number of packages and destination of the order.
Orders are shipped from Auckland. Delivery is in most instances overnight. Rural deliveries will generally take an extra day. Where goods are shipped inter island, the seller cannot be held responsible for delays in transit over Cook Strait. Bad weather can delay ferry sailings and add 1 or 2 days to the normal delivery time.
