Owatrol Deks Olje

Deks Olje is a two step wood finishing system that is much easier to apply and maintain than traditional varnish. D1 is applied first. Deks Olje D1 is a specially formulated penetrating oil that soaks deep into teak and other marine wood grain, producing a rich transparent matte finish. The oil helps strengthen wood against the deteriorating effects of sun, salt, wind, and foot traffic for increased durability. If you desire a matte finish similar to rubbed Tung oil, D1 is the only step necessary.

If you wish to continue to a high gloss finish, apply D2 over the D1. Deks Olje D2 is very easy to apply, and produces a hard, flexible gloss coating that doesn't chip or peel like varnish. Fully cured, D2 is slightly softer than traditional varnish but very easily maintained. You may blend seamless touchups to high wear areas with D2.

Tech Spec Product Info User Generated Content
Deks Olje penetrates wood, rather than simply coating the surface. It has no UV inhibitors, meaning it is a true clear finish that enhances the true beauty of wood underneath. The penetrating oil naturally strengthens wood fiber and prevents weathering degradation. For best results, first clean wood with Owatrol Wood Deck Cleaner.

Matte Finish Apply D1 to new or cleaned wood. D1 may also be overcoated with any other type of varnish. D1 is the first step continuing on with D2 high gloss application.

Satin Gloss Finish After first applying D1, apply two final coats of blended D1 & D2, 50:50 mix.

High Gloss Finish After first applying D1, finish with six coats of D2.

Why Deks Olje products are a favorite for JD customers:

  • Good product coverage, a little goes a long way
  • Easy application. Simply saturate wood with D1 then follow with D2
  • Simple Application tools : Brush or Roller. No need to use high end brushes required in fine varnish jobs
  • Forgiving Application temperature range : +41°F to +95°F
  • Drying time: 24 hr

        Comments about Owatrol Deks Olje:

        I have been using this product as well as the D2 and I won't go back to regular Teak Oils again. The D1 touches up well and you can over-coat it as it starts to wear.
        I use the D2 on my Mahogany salon doors and my mahogany window frames and they look great. I also use the D2 on my teak gunnel coverboards and a couple of hot over coats later, they look like they are still wet for weeks, the gloss is so deep!

              This is the first time using this product and so far I am pleased with the ease of application. I have high hopes that it will stand up to the elements. I used Owatrol Deks Olje to restore a pair of giant, Gothic, oak doors on a church in Akron, Oh.

                  I bought this product to refinish teak deck furniture. The product goes on easily, like water, and soaks into the wood well. It provides a nice "gold" color to the teak. What I do not know is how well the product will protect the wood from the sun, and how often new treatments will be required. Only time will tell.

                    I like to clean inside of plank surfaces with rag and mineral spirits then apply till the wood is saturated with brush. The Catskill White pine looks takes on a nice almost varnish like finish.
                    one year I used a teak oil finish on top of the deks olje,and followed the next year with the Deks Olje. Thats 11 years of Deks Olje, the natural finsh is a beaautiful contrast with the painted thwarts.

                          I recently purchased Deks Olje on a recomendation by a friend who used it on his teak. I can say that the results were great, with the Amazon Quickie II cleaner and then applying the Deks my teak trim pieces look like new! If you want a good finish on your teak or are restoring back to new this is your product.

                                I recently applied Olje to the top surfaces of a redwood table and benches at a seasonal home in northern wisconsin that had been previously stained and coated with butchers wax as a protectant. It took a lot of stripping, deck cleaning, at Dek's recommendation, and sanding below the stain. The results were well worth the time and effort. The horizontal surfaces now have a very rich, finish that shows off the redwood beautifully. I've not tested it by spilling anything on it but am convinced that it is well protected. I anticipate that after I use it for a while I'll change my review to excellent.

                                    I have heard about Deks Olje for years but tried it for the first time this winter on a laminated stand-up paddle board paddle I built. I am a big beliver in penetrating finishes and tried the Deks Olje #1 and #2 (5 coats of #2)and the final result is amazing...deep thick finish unlike any oil product (tung/ Watco) I have used. I am anticipating wear and the Deks finish should be easy to touch up at the end of the season...Makes my varnish jobs look bad (whch they are.)
