Cabot Teak Oil Finish restores and maintains teak wood with its premium blend of natural ingredients. Teak Oil provides a rich oiled appearance while preventing graying and staining. This deep-penetrating formula extends the life of teak by replacing the natural oils taken away by exposure to the elements. This clear finish resists cracking or peeling and accentuates the natural beauty of teak.
One quart covers up to 50-100 sq. ft. (4.6-9.3 m²) depending upon wood porosity. Do not thin.
Where to Use
Ideal for marine environments. Do not apply over varnish, as it cannot penetrate the wood properly. This product is superior protection for hardwoods, ideal for teak, mahogany and rosewood.
Preparing Your Surfaces
Remove any stains and oxidation by cleaning with an oxalic acid solution or commercial wood cleaner following the label directions. Rinse well and allow the teak to dry thoroughly before applying Teak Oil. If the teak was previously sealed with a film-forming finish such as varnish or polyurethane, the finish must be completely removed before using Teak Oil.
Apply liberally with a lint-free cloth, natural bristle brush or short nap roller working with the grain of the wood. After 10 minutes, remove any excess Teak Oil. Allow to dry 2-4 hours. Apply additional coats, as needed to rejuvenate wood, allowing for proper dry time between coats. Severely bleached or dried-out teak may require 4-6 coats of Teak Oil.
Cleanup and Disposal
Clean brushes and equipment with mineral spirits. Dispose of empty cans or unused portion in accordance with local, state and federal regulations. Close container when not in use. Soak oily rags, lambswool, steel wool, cloths or any other material in water after use to avoid spontaneous combustion. Danger: Rags, steel wood or waste soaked with this product may spontaneously catch fire if improperly discarded. Immediately after each use, place rags, steel wool or waste in a sealed, water-filled metal container. Dispose of according to local regulations.
