Product Description

We make preserving the beautiful, natural look of timber easy. All Cutek oils are sold clear, which allows the wood to age gracefully into a beautiful silver patina on exposure to sunlight. However, if you’d like to retain the natural freshly oiled colour of the timber you’re working with you can simply add a colourtone to the clear oil. Choose one of our 10 colourtones which have been specifically developed to closely match many popular wood species.

Preparation

Try it first, with one of our 100 ml sample tins! For horizontal walk on surfaces such as decking, we recommend you select a Colourtone that is the closest match to the wood you have selected, rather than attempt to change the colour. You can talk to any of our stockists for advice. For cladding and screening, a much higher build of colour can be achieved which can completely change the original tone of the wood. Even very light wood coloured species can become an almost solid Black, Grey, Red, Brown or Gold if the wood surface is suitably rough and more coats or a higher pigment loading has been added. In some circumstances you can double your Colourtone to achieve bolder effects on rough or brushed wood. We advise that you contact us to discuss this option in more detail as we want to ensure you have the best information possible.

Application

IL Colourtone pot is required for a 1 litre can of CUTEK oil. 5L Colourtone pot is required for a 5 litre can of CUTEK oil. 2X 5L Coloutone pots per 10 litre can of CUTEK oil. 4 x 5L Colourtone pots per 20 litre can of CUTEK oil Stir and mix the Colourtone well before adding into the clear oil. Continue to stir well with a flat stirrer, lifting from the bottom, for about 2 minutes before use and give a quick stir about every 15 minutes during use to ensure even results. Stir and mix the Colourtone well before adding into the clear oil. Continue to stir well with a flat stirrer, lifting from the bottom, for about 2 minutes before use and give a quick stir about every 15 minutes during use to ensure even results. For best results, one coat of clear CUTEK oil should be applied to all faces of the wood prior to installing, with a second and third coat of colourtoned Cutek oil applied to the top surface once the first coat is completely dry. Two or three thin coats on finished wood and hardwoods are better than one or two thick coats. CUTEK oils will take longer to absorb/penetrate into dense hardwoods so thin coats are best so as to avoid delayed drying of the oil.
