Owatrol Deks Olje D.1 will not blacken timber and replaces the natural oils lost from the wood through weathering and the natural elements. 

As Owatrol Deks Olje D.1 can be used both above and below the waterline, the finish is often specified for application in marine environments, such as on boat decks, marinas and pools. 

Saturating oil can be applied to both horizontal and vertical installations and can provide an excellent base for traditional underwater coatings where necessary. Owatrol Deks Olje D.1 is suitable for all types of woods, both soft and hard, whether oily or dense. 

Deks Olje D.1 provides a transparent finish which enhances the natural grain of the timber. The deep penetrating formula protects against moisture ingress and stabilises the timber.

For a satin-matt finish use Owatrol Deks Olje D.1 alone. If a high gloss finish is desired, use Owatrol Deks Olje D.2 as an overcoat. 


Number of coats recommended: 2.
Drying time (to touch): 24 hours.
Time to re-coat (between applications): 15-30 minutes.
Usage: exterior wood, e.g. cladding, decking and fencing (excluding ThermoWood). Interior wood e.g. flooring, panelling, stairs, joinery. Marine wood e.g. hulls, portals, trim, wheelhouse.
Recommended application: for best results surfaces must be clean, dry and free of dirt, grease, grime, mildew and previous coatings.

Approximate Coverage

1-4 square metres per litre with one coat on smooth wood.

  • Protects against humidity and its effects.
  • Transparent – keeps the woods natural appearance.
  • A matt and natural finish.

Application instructions

  • Apply a first coat of Owatrol Deks Olje D.1, allowing the finish to penetrate timber for around 15 to 30 minutes.
  • Apply a second coat, again allow the finish to penetrate for around 15 to 30 minutes.
  • Repeat the re-coating process until the timber is fully saturated and will not accept any more finish.
  • Wipe off or brush away any excess oil that will not penetrate to avoid any glossy/irregular spots.
  • Ensure D.1 does not become touch dry in-between coats. Recoats should be on a wet-on-wet basis.
  • Always refer to the packaging for full application procedures.
