Osmo UV Protection Oil Tints
Osmo UV Protection Oil Tints for vertical wood surfaces outside
Osmo UV Protection Oil Tints are a tinted satin, natural oil based and microporous finish, which does not crack, flake, peel or blister. It is water and dirt resistant, moisture regulating and reduces wood swelling and shrinkage. The natural oils enhance the natural character and tone of the wood. It is available in a number of tinted oils to suit your desired effect!
Osmo UV Protection Oil Tints are a transparent, lightly pigmented, natural oil based, satin wood finish for exterior use. Its microporous surface allows the wood to breathe and reduces swelling and shrinkage. Its water-repellent surface does not crack, peel, flake or blister. As topcoat on already coloured treated wood, Osmo UV Protection Oil Tints extends intervals between renovations significantly.
As self-priming finish, it prevents the greying process on vertical surfaces with a UV protection factor 12 in comparison to untreated wood when two coats are applied. The finish contains active ingredients that prevent mould, algae and fungal attack. Simply apply without sanding. Easy and seamless application. Finish stays workable while coating.
Our range of Osmo UV Protection Oil Tints are ideal for all vertical exterior wood surfaces such as doors, windows, window shutters (dimensionally stable elements), carports, timber cladding, balconies, fences, pergolas, and summer houses (dimensionally unstable elements). Also suitable for bamboo poles (e.g. in screens).

Wood surface must be clean, dry and frost-free (moisture content max. 20%).
UV Protection Oil is ready to use, please do not thin. Stir well before use.
Clean old microporous stains thoroughly. Old paints and lacquers must be completely removed. As a general rule, wear a dust mask during sanding works. Do not sand smooth surfaces finer than P120. If possible, please apply base coat to all sides before installation.
Fresh wood containing extractives and especially hard wood needs to weather off (for approximately 6 weeks) after installation. Thereby the wood becomes absorbent and the wood finish adheres optimally.
A base coat with a coloured finish is recommended, e.g. Osmo One Coat Only, Natural Oil Woodstain or Country Colour.
For renovations, clean old microporous wood finishes thoroughly. Clean and refresh already greyed or weathered wood at the same time with Osmo Wood Reviver Power-Gel.
The finished surface is, among other things, influenced by the wood‘s natural characteristics. Therefore, a trial application is always required, especially for unfamiliar surfaces.
If additional protection against blue stain, rot and insects is desired, pre-treat the wood if possible on all sides with Osmo WR Base Coat*.
*Use biocides safely. Always read label and productinformation before use.
Apply thinly along the wood grain with Osmo Soft Tip Brush or Osmo Microfibre Roller and spread well.
Allow to dry for approx. 12 hours with good ventilation.
When recoating colour treated surfaces, or for renovation works, one coat applied to the clean and dry surface is usually sufficient.
Oils enhance the natural tone of wood (permanent wet effect).
Depending on the degree of weathering, apply one coat of Osmo UV Protection Oil Tints to the cleaned and intact finish after approx. 3–4 years.
For areas, which are highly exposed to weather, such as weatherboard, post caps or windowsills, please expect substantially shorter intervals between renovations. Vertical elements mounted onto horizontal wood should have at least a 15-degree angle. Sharp edges must be rounded (radius > 2 mm).
If the greying process has already begun, refresh the surface with Osmo Wood Reviver Power Gel and reapply 2 coats of Osmo UV Protection Oil Tints.
To achieve the UV protection factor 12, it is necessary to apply 2 coats of UV Protection Oil Tints. With only one coat on untreated wood, the life of the finish is significantly shorter.
Osmo UV Protection Oil Tints Natural 429 protects wood nearly invisibly. The natural wood tone is preserved — it does not alter the natural colour tone of the wood (no permanent wet effect). On dark/reddish wood species, Osmo UV Protection Oil Tints Natural is visible as slightly white chalky surface. A trial application is always recommended.
