We recommend coating with high quality timber protective oil Cutek® CD50 ready for outdoors.
* Cutek® CD50 won’t form a film instead diffuses through timber controlling moisture from the inside;
* significantly slows down the rate of moisture exchange between wood and the environment;
* stabilises timber by controlling moisture for many years, minimising movement;
* is not a film so does not need to be removed before recoating, greatly simplifying maintenance.
