Owatrol Deks Olje is a 2-step wood finishing system that is 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 wood 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 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.
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.

This is my 5th. time I purchased this item in the past 20 years. I don't use much, but I use it on my swim decks and on the teak around my windshield. It's easy to use and it does not darken my teak. It keeps it natural.

Have been using Deks Ojle for decades. Love the finished color and ease of application. I know it is seasonal, but with upkeep can last a long time.

Just bought '67 36' Trojan The deck was in bad shape. The deck had been varnished and it was cracked and peeling and looked horrible. It took me three days to sand it all off. I had used Deks Olje on my first boat; a 1962, 30' Trojan and it came out fine and was quite durable. I did not want a shiny, slick finish in the deck and chose Deks Olje 1 as I wanted something to penetrate into the wood and to protect. I have one coat on it now and the people on my dock have commented positively on the way it looks. I am quite satisfied as to how it has turned out and plan on putting one or two more coats down.

Major disappointment. I have used Deks Olje D1 on several different projects from outdoor teak furniture to teak toe rails and seats to an ipe outdoor shower and been less than pleased with any of the results. I've been painting, varnishing, refinishing, and working with wood for 30 years and know the importance of following manufacturers' instructions, so my prep and application aren't the issue. Deks goes on looking amazing. Once dry it looks nice. Once it has weathered a few months some of the wood has faded, mildew is growing in the wood seemingly beneath the sealer, and, in the case of ipe, much of the sealer has vanished and there is algae and mildew growing. Deks says to simply wash the grayed wood with their cleaner and reapply D1. No sanding needed. Great, now I had clean, gray teak with mildew spots that I then had to pressure wash and sand back to new wood before re-sealing (see pic of table top). Based on all the glowing reviews I want to like this product, but it has done nothing but disappoint me and my clients. Is topping D1 with a couple coats of D1 and D2 mixed 50/50 the answer? Is adding 12 coats of D2 at 12 hour intervals the answer? I hesitate to invest nearly $100 in a can of D2 and hours of labor to find out.

I construct bamboo fly rods and immerse them in Deks Olje for at least a week. I believe this impregnates the bamboo giving long lasting protection.

I Have a teak bar & chairs in Florida which is on my dock that looked as if I should have trashed it . I followed the instructions on the can. It was time consuming because of it's condition to prepare but the application of the D1 & D2 was easy . Looks beautiful and the maintenance to keep it up with this product appears to be a breeze .
