products usually have a less dramatic effect on the natural color of the timber. These coatings clog the pores and protect the surface with an acrylic layer. In order for the product to
work effectively the deck has to be cleaned of dust and other debris ahead of applying, or else there’s a danger of lack of adhesion to the surface and coating will peel off. One of the popular water-based products around Sydney is Cabot’s Aquadeck. Aquadeck is durable low odor decking product effective on low traffic deck. As the rest of the water-based oil treatments cannot be touched up.
products penetrate into the wood fiber and protect the boards from water damage along with other elements. Traditional decking oils need a longer drying time between coats, but they can keep boards (or outdoor furniture) looking good longer. Nonetheless, these oils generally turn the wood into a darker shade of colour. Some examples: Cutek Bunnings extreme, (and the Cutek Proclean) Intergrain Nature’s Timber Oil, Urethane coatings Decking natural oil or Intergrain timber oil UltraDeck timber stain.
Oil based treatments need to be used with care. The most frequent mistake is applying too much of it
and not wiping the excess from the deck. When wood is fully saturated the oil will dry on the surface and create shiny areas.
It is quite difficult to remove these sticky puddles and often re-sanding the floor is the only alternative.
