Available in Clear, Redwood and Cedar Tones, Owatrol Textrol Penetrating Oil Finish is a high solids, premium oil finish for exterior wood.

Clear is the perfect solution where a totally natural look is desired. Redwood Tone is the ideal colour for enhancing the natural redness and characteristics of woods such as Ipe, Balau and Mahogany while Cedar Tone works wonders on Iroko and other similar light-coloured timbers.

Owatrol Textrol Oil provides a mildew resistant finish, which, because it is non-film building, will not crack, peel or flake. When Owatrol Textrol is first applied, the wood will darken to a rich matt colour. It will then gradually lighten depending on the intensity of sun exposure.

Owatrol Textrol Oil may be used on soft or hardwoods, pressure treated timber, Cedar and Redwood. It is ideal for garden decks, fences, and cladding, shake and shingle roofs, log homes and garden furniture.
