Decking Oil

I'm thinking about a decking oil for post and rail timber fencing. Of course, the treated pine posts and hardwood rails have a rough surface. Thus far I have realised that I do not need a barrier paint, and also that the oil (or paint) must be sprayable rather than brushed on. One option I'm considering for the fencing is Stud X because it soaks into the wood and allows it to breathe. An advantage of a decking oil, though, is that it also allows the wood to breathe and I can keep the natural colour of the wood, whereas the Stud X is black. But my prime concern is long-term endurance of the fencing so I'm prepared to sacrifice the colour. I'm also wondering whether a water-based 'oil' is better for fencing than oil based. Could you please advise whether a decking oil would be good at keeping the fencing timber healthy for many years out there in the weather?

Decking Oil

Hi I’ve built an indoor deck there is no weather to affect the decking . I’m using jarrah finger joint decking and have only just bought it . Do I still have to wait a certain amount of time to use the water based decking oil . I tried one piece of decking , it was smooth before I applied the oil now it seems rough to touch after about 3 hrs . Will another coat tomorrow make it less rough or does it need to cure further

I have used the OIL based product and the WATER based product. The OIL based product was very good, but the WATER based product left a lot to be desired. I would not recommend it. Very thin and inefective. I switched to FeastWatson. Much Better. Three coats, each a day apart and it is still like day one. I switched to WATER based simply because the finish lasts longer.

Decking Oil Oil Based

Hi BP - we have been leaning towards "October Brown" as an oil based for our treated pine fence,
but a friend of ours has used your Timber Protect 10L brown stain.

i know there is always a difference in colours between oil and water based - but is there any chart of colours BP have that i can get an idea of how close the colours are / could be.

it might just have to buy a example pot

Decking Oil Water Based

We applied the one coat decking oil to our new deck about 3 weeks ago. It was fine until it rained yesterday. There are now dark splotchy patches all over where it got wet and there are patches where it appears to have come off altogether. Is there a way of fixing the darker patches because it now looks terrible?

Decking Oil Oil Based

The deck looks dry but my fingers get a film of oil on them if I wipe them on the deck. This is 24 hours after finishing the second coat of oil based. I only put a thin coat of oil on the deck. Is this normal and how long should I expect it to be like this?

1 answer
British Paints
NickBritish Paints

Hi There,

Depending on where you are located, it may take a few days for the second coat of the oil to dry, because it is winter at the moment.
In good weather, the oil would have soaked in and be dry within 24 hours.
If the first coat was applied heavily, then the second coat would also take longer to dry, because the second coat would sit on the surface longer before soaking in.

The best solution is to leave the coating to dry for a few more days. If this is not an option, then wiping off the excess will help speed up the drying. The can use cloths or a dry applicator pad. Hope this helps!
Regards, The British Paints Team.

Decking Oil Oil Based

It says 12hour recoat time for oil based on the bunnings website. Unfortunately the British Paints website doesn't list the application info from the can.
Can you recoat after or before 12 hours? 12 hours is an impossible recoat time unless you want to recoat under torch light at night time.

Hi there,

The 12 hour recoat time is the minimum dry time for the product. You will be able to apply a second out anytime after the drying window. Hope that helps and if you need further information, feel free to call us on 13 25 25. Regards, The British Paints Team.

On the can,of the British Paints oil based decking oil (natural) it states, under Application Allow 18 hours between coats

British paints... why do other oil based decking oils have recoat times of 2 hours? I'm just really interested in the formula of ingredients and the science about it. Is it tung oil in this product? Is the long recoat time because of it having more kerosene of turpentine than other products?
