How to use Osmo UV Protection Oil Tints

  1. The wood surface must be clean, dry and frost-free (moisture content max. 20%).
  2. UV Protection Oil Tints is ready to use. Do not thin. Stir well before use.
  3. If possible, please apply first coat to all sides before installation.
  4. For renovation works, clean old micro-porous stains thoroughly – if necessary sand lightly.
  5. Clean and restore already greyed or weathered wood at the same time with Osmo Wood Reviver Power-Gel.
  6. Old paints and lacquers must be completely removed.
  7. As a general rule, wear a dust mask during sanding works. Do not sand smooth surfaces finer than grit P120.
  8. The finished surface is influenced by several factors, including the condition of the wood. Therefore, a trial application is always required, especially for unfamiliar surfaces.
  9. Fresh, especially hardwood rich in extractives needs to weather off for approximately 6 weeks after installation. Thereby the wood becomes absorbent and the oil finish adheres optimally.
  10. 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.
  11. Apply with an Osmo Flat Brush or Micro-fibre Roller, apply thinly along the wood grain and spread well.
  12. Allow to dry for approx. 12 hours under good ventilation.
  13. Then apply the second coat.
  14. Alternatively the second coat can also be carried out with UV Protection Oil Clear.
  15. When re-coating colour treated surfaces, or for renovation works, one coat applied to the clean and dry surface is usually sufficient.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Depending on how weathered your wood gets,  it is recommended to re-apply a coat of Osmo UV Protection Oil Tints every 2 – 3 years. In heavily weathered areas, it is recommended to apply yearly. If any wood is looking worn or needs renovation, lightly sand the wood. Ensure you clean away any dirt or grime. Apply a thin coat of Osmo UV Oil tints, over the lightly sanded area and surrounding wood. Wipe away any excess oil and allow it to dry. Then continue with your usual treatment routine. Only apply in warm dry conditions.  If intensive cleaning and refreshing is needed, use Osmo Wood Reviver Power Gel and then re-coat with oil. Always follow Osmo instructions to achieve best results and test a small area for suitability.


Please note

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 exposed to strong weathering, such as weatherboard, post caps or window sills, please expect significantly shorter renovation intervals.

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, de-grey the surface with Osmo Wood Reviver Power Gel and refinish with 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 coating is significantly shorter.

Osmo UV Protection Oil Tints is furnished with biocides and therefore it is only to be used in outdoor areas.

The added active ingredients delay or minimise the risk of algae and fungal attack. For effective protection, two coats are to be carried out. In accordance with the latest technical research, permanent protection against algae and fungal attack cannot be provided.

STORAGE – Up to 5 years and longer if can is kept dry and closed tightly. If thickened by frost, store for 24-36 hours at room temperature before use.

Clean tools with Osmo Brush Cleaner (free of aromatic compounds).

DRYING TIME – Approx. 12 hours (normal climatic conditions, 23 °C/ 50 % rel. humidity). Lower temperatures and/or higher air humidity can increase the drying time. Ventilate well while drying.

COVERAGE 1 litre covers approx. 18 m² with one coat. Coverage depends significantly on the condition of the wood. All information refers to smooth and planed/ sanded surfaces. Other surfaces may lead to differences in coverage.

Dispose of leftover product and completely emptied packaging according to local official guidelines (waste code number 08 01 11). Only completely emptied cans can be recycled.

Questions and Answers

Can you still see the grain of the wood when you apply Osmo UV Protection oil tints?

Yes, this is a transparent tinted finish so you can still see the grain through the coloured oil. If you are looking for a finish that will mask the grain (similar to a paint) then see Osmo Country Shades (available in colours inspired by Fire, Water, Air and Earth). The more coats of the UV tints you apply, the stronger the colour will be and the pigments will start to mask the grain. 

Can you spray Osmo UV tints?

Yes, Osmo UV Protection Oil can sometimes be sprayed (depending on the spray equipment) but for best results it is best to apply with a brush, as this will help the wood oil to penetrate to wood better. By using a brush you will spread the oil more evenly and this will offer a more even finish. The best brush to use is the Osmo Flat brush (available in various sizes) as this brush has been specially designed to apply Osmo oils. If you do decide to spray the UV tinted oil, always test to ensure compatibility with your spray machine as it will not work with all sprayers. 

Will Osmo UV Protection oil tints 425 oak darken the wood? 

Osmo UV Protection oil in Oak (425) is one of the most popular colours as it doesn’t darken the wood too much ( if the wood has been correctly prepared ) but rather adds a warmth to the wood with a lovely tinted shade. It will look darker on rough sawn wood but is a lighter shade on smooth sanded wood. For a lighter tint of Oak shade we do also offer the colour ‘Light Oak 432’. Both tinted shades can help to add that lovely Oak shade to any timber and also offer the superb protection against the weather elements. 

I have been looking at the Osmo tint in Oak. Some say just Oak and some Oak transparent both with the same code 425. Are they the same product?

Yes they are both the same product. The UV protection tints are a transparent finish, meaning that you can still see the grain of the wood once applied. It will colour the timber still and the Oak shade is one of the most popular as it adds a warmth to your timber without masking the natural grain of the timber. This is why wood oil is a better choice than paints, as they still show the wonderful wood grain, they are easy to maintain and offer a good protection against the elements.

    I took delivery of a garden sculpture set on an oak column which had received one coat of Osmo UV protection, so I bought some Osmo to give it a recommended second coat. The oak column now looks terrific. The Osmo was securely packed and quickly sent and it was a pleasure to deal with the Seller.
