How to use Rustins Teak Oil

  1. The wood must be clean, smooth, dry and free from wax, dust and contaminants.

  3. Existing paint and varnishes should be removed with Rustins Strypit Paint and Varnish Stripper.
  4. Bare wood may be dyed before coating with a Wood Dye.
  5. It is recommended that oak is first treated with Rustins Clear Advanced Wood Preserver to prevent dark staining caused by mould, inherent in oak. Do not apply Knotting
  6. Shale well before use
  7. Apply Rustins Teak Oil liberally with a clean rag or brush and wipe off the surplus oil after a few minutes.
  8. On exterior wood, the first coat should be applied liberally with a brush and allowed to dry without wiping.
