Answer

should not need to thin this product for normal use. Came if I remember correctly with a percentage of mineral spirits as part of the mixture. Hope this helps- good luck!!

Answered on 02/09/2015 by DANIEL STOTTS

Answer

It is a great varnish that needs no thinning if you are applying it with roller or brush. Spraying would probably require thinning.

Answer

I have used the product at full strength on our teak root outdoor furniture, and so far it has been great. I had been using the regular, basic teak oil to try to protect the set at our high a high desert altitude, and wound up having to re-stain every season. The wood just soaked it up, usually two coats and it always dried out quickly. Since switching to the marine grade Tung'n Teak Oil, now two seasons ago, the finish has not dried out and is in excellent shape after only one coat. So far I am very happy and would recommend this product for this application.

Answer

It is sold as pure oil with a UV protectant, fungicide and mildewcide added. I used it on redwood and did not thin it.

No, there is no need to thin it.

Question

I'm looking to use Tung'n Teak Oil on my Red Oak truck bed, but I want the yellow, orange, reds to be maintaned, Flame colors to match the Orange truck. Thought Tung would do it, but not as good moisture/UV protection. Teak Oil would darken to more brownist color. Yuck. I don't mind reapply every year. The truck stays mostly in the garage. Tung Oil? Will Tung'n Teak Oil darken the natural red oak colors????

While my experience is limited to a small piece of teak used as a handle on a boat, I have been pleased over this summer with the application, appearance, texture, color, and color maintenance of the handle which has seen days hanging in sun as well as rain.

Answer

I have used tung oil for ten years on my pine floors. Over time they do darken,but not brown. Deeper red. I think this is more due to sun exposure though because the unexposed, tung oil treated pine looks brand new today

Answer

Billy, I used this product on teak that had really slivered in color. It brought back more gold and brown colors and tended to be very dark.

Answered on 07/18/2012 by JEFF AUSTIN

Answer

Billy, I used this on teak steps for my boat and there is little to no color to the oil. Flat finish with a couple coats and slight sheen with 3 or 4. Don't let it sit too long before wiping off the excess as the instructions say. If you wait too long it will start to harden slightly and be a bit of a mess. So far i have been walking on my teak daily and no signs of wear and i just hose it off to clean it. Bruce

I let it dry 24 hours and then rubbed it out with 0000 steel wool. Rubbing out too soon can get pretty messy.

Is this good oil for the back of the boat in the ocean? the piece I'm working with is always in the water

Asked on 10/23/2012 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

I don't think it would hold up to being constantly submerged. I got about four months on some patio furniture and it needs to be treated again.

Answer

I can't answer your question directly but I can tell you what I used this product for and how it has performed. This past summer I built a West Greenland style kayak paddle out of western red cedar. I applied three coats of tung oil following the manufacturers directions. The product has performed well. I have used it in both fresh and salt water. The paddle shows no signs of water infiltration. I recommend this product strongly. However, if your application will be totally submerged for long periods of time, I suggest that you contact the manufacturer directly.

I have a 1000 gallon smoker and Im adding 2 new side boards. I have from another project 2x10s x 8 red oak. The wood has been kiln dried, and will be out side. I live in the upstate of SC. Is this the product I want to use? Do I want to coat all surfaces? Will a Qt be enough to complete this product? Thanks for all your help. Brit Adams 864 247 8599

Top Answer

Brit, I used the Circa 1850 Marine Grade Tung'n Teak Oil to coat a front porch constructed of 2x6 T&G structural flooring from southern yellow pine stock. I had to use two coats because the SYP is more poris than the teak for which this product is designed. The porch is approx. 16'x8' and the two coats required about 1.5 gallons. The water from the first rain beaded up like a freshly waxed automobile hood. John Haba, Houston

Question

Would you recommend this oil for toe rails on a sailboat? Does it hold up to the weather salt water etc?

Asked on 04/04/2014 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

I used it to seal anf preserve a wooden kayak paddle and it worked great so if you are looking to protect and preserve it is a great product. It is a "soft" product and it is difficult to keep its luster. If you are looking for a hard finish and high gloss, I would recommend that you use spar varnish.

Is it safe near food prep?

Asked on 05/09/2012 by David Woodward

Top Answer

I would not use it for that purpose. You can get a food-grade penetrating oil for cutting boards and the like at most restaurant supply houses, and possibly even some supermarkets. Don't use vegetable oil on your cutting boards / counters etc. It can go rancid.
