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.

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.

where can i buy desk olje in sarasota fl.?
Check the Deks olje web site. It lists Fla. distributors. The easiest, most reliable option is Jamestown. You will have it on your doorstep in a few days
I have no idea. i would order it from Jamestown Distributors.
The Deks Olje web site lists Florida distributors. Jamestown is always my first choice because they always have it and I receive it in a few days when stateside.
Maybe West Marine. I thought I saw there
I don't know I'm in Ca but buy it it's best product
I believe I just ordered it from Jamestown had it delivered I'm in the Pacific Northwest and I don't believe West Marine stores carry it anymore as I had worked for them for 10 years so I just ordered it off the internet and it came in just a few days and I love the way as I had work for them for 10 years so I just ordered it off the internet and it came in just a few days and I love the way it works on teak
I buy it online.
Can I use this product on oak that has been stained?
I wouldnt. This stuff needs to soak into the wood to be effective. Most stains will seal your wood to some extent so I would advise against it.
We have only used it on unstained teak, so I'm not sure what kind of results you will get on oak. We have tried every product under the sun on our teak and this one is about the same as the last one we used. We live in the northwest and in the winter the topside is about as wet as the bottom. And we are still looking for something that will hold up to our winters.
There is a two step product that draws oil out of teak that might work for stain. Desk Olje is a penetrating oil and may or may not penetrate the stain.
As long as it was not coated with varnish or some other kind of top coat I think you could. But, I'd recommend you contact DEKS direct. I did with questions for my application and they were very good about promptly answering with good information.
hey can i use this oil on my counter top in my kitchen.?
Number 2 is just like Varnish so I don't see why not... It's very durable
You can but you will then also need to use part 2 to seal it.
It is not a hard finish. I would not recommend it for a kitchen counter.

CAN IT BE PURCHASED IN TUCSON?
The only place I was able to obtain this product was through Jamestown Distributers. Have used this for years on our teak and it was discontinued for some reason at all the Marine supply stores. I was relieved to find it along with D2 at Jamestown Distributors.
I had purchased it locally (Albany, NY) several years ago, but only place I can find it now is mail-order here.
How does deks olje hold up in the severe heat and sun of Texas?
Don't know, I live in Connecticut.Regards, Bill
Not sure about Texas, but; In the San Francisco Bay we would do a coat of #2 about once a year. In the Sea of Cortez We re-coated about once every six months.
no idea. My guess is that like any other polyurethane, over time, it will crack and peel.
It holds up very well in the same conditions here in the Central Valley of California, however it is best to shield from the sun as much as possible as it does deteriorate eventually. I don't think the heat bothers it as much as UV does. However, it is very easy to rejuvenate with a quick wet sand and another coat. It definitely hold up better that my slip neighbor's varnish.
I've used this product on various woods for about 30 years in Oklahoma and have had excellent results. I do keep the boats under cover during the week, but it gets plenty of sun on weekends. I currently have it on teak decking, rub rails and seats on a 24' wooden outboard. I generally give it a fresh coat every year or so, but its quick and easy to apply - no sanding, just wash the dirt out.
We recently applied Deks Olje 1 to our teakwood patio furniture recently...thinking it was a clear finish, and would dry to our normal light teakwood finish. It has taken on more of a redwood finish than we would have liked. Is there anything that can be done, short of stripping and sanding to get back to our original light finish? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
Sorry, I cannot help. I have only used on white cedar.Regards, Bill
I always use a water-based paint remover to remove a teak finish. Then, follow-up with some 80-grit sand paper in a dual-action sander. Removing Deks Olje 1 is much easier and quicker than removing Deks Olje 2. Mine lasts for two years or so, but I have 2 60+ pound dogs not wearing deck shows, so their claws wear it quicker... Ron
pressure wash followed by light sanding is the fastest way to prep the wood.
I plan to use Deks Olje on the inside of an open rowing dinghy. The planking, cedar, already has some linseed oil on it. Will Deks Olje be compatible with the few coats of linseed oil already on the inside of my cedar, lapstrake (copper rivets) dinghy?
Graig,I'm not sure. Would be best to contact Deks Olje.Regards, Bill
I have used Deks Olje 1 on teak veneer that has had boiled linseed oil on it and have had good results. I would lightly sand the surfaces you want to coat and apply number 1 only. Number 2 can get slick and wouldn't be a good surface to walk on. I used number one on solid raw teak and put anywhere from 3 to 7 coats depending on how weathered the material was to start with. I finished up with 6 coats of the number 2 except on walking surfaces that I only used number 1. The stuff looks great and wears well. The sun does a number on it and you might have to reapply yearly to keep up the appearance and protection depending on exposure to direct sunlight. I like this product.
If it's just a little linseed I would not worry about it. But if the wood is sealed, then the Deks Olje may not be able to penetrate and you will not get full benefit of the material. In that case you should probably sand before application.
Thanks, David. If I have to sand or use cleaner, I'll go with the cleaner. The dinghy is copper riveted.
I believe it would as long as the oil finish is not too "skimmed" over and you're not looking for a high gloss -- I put D.O. over a faded pine tar/linseed oil finish on the oak thwarts and spruce deck of a small ketch -- the DO soaked in fine without sanding, and left a satin oil coat with the darkness of the former tar/oil beneath but without the tackiness of the tar. You might experiment with sanding or using the Deck Cleaner to get the look you want with the DO. I love the stuff.
For exterior teak on a sailboat, how would you compare the performance of Deks Olje and TotalBoat?
I don't know.Bill
I have never used Totalboat. I've never heard of it. I really do like Deks Olje though. I used both 1 & 2 and followed the instructions. My boat is in a covered slip most of the time. Looks and wears great. Easy to maintain and repair scratches.
I would not use Deks Ole on teak. I don't think I would use it again actually. It is a nice finish but it does not hold up to harsh outdoor conditions, but there's not been anything else I've found to work either. Proper application of Deks is very labor intensive too. Read the directions.
Looking to restore dark reddish color to teak that has been weathered gray. Will this or any other product do that?
Sorry, I don't know. My use for Deks Olje was on African Mahogany floors in a new house.
teak cleaner and brush can remove grey weathering, and restore teak color. If no other finish is on wood, useDeks 1 full strength as directed- back to back wet on wet coats till saturation. days later, lay 1 coat olje 2on.
I love this product and its ability to bring out the natural color of my teak. I use a thinned with acetone (50/50) first coat before using it full strength.-dennis
Although this product will darken the finish; it or any other finish alone will not restore the full reddish color alone. - you need to sand and clean the teak first, probably with a wood bleach.
Just wondering how much Deks D1 to purchase?? I have 8 teak chairs, a 70" inch round teak table, and an 8 ft teak bench. Also, can this product be sprayed on??
I'd think that 2 qts. would be appropriate. I used 1 Qt and this was just about perfect for a 54" table and 4 benches but they are redwood which soaked up a lot of Olje
buy 2 qts of #1 and u will have to apply #2 finish product if you want to use on chairs, the #1 stays a little oily # 2 will seal it up by far best product I"ve used on teak
Jo, I think you will need minimum 2 qts with that much wood to cover. Deks 1 is a penetrating oil so you will continue to apply coats until it has completely saturated the teak and it won't absorb any more. Plan to spend about 8 hrs brushing it on about every half hour as the wood soaks it in each time. Deks is a great teak finish but you must be patient and follow the application directions on the container exactly. If you want you can apply deks 2 after 3 days dry time to produce a gloss varnish like hard finish over the deks 1. FYI if you use deks 1 only and it wears over time you can reapply it over itself to cover any wear or thinning due to hard use. Pat
1 qt of #1 should be enough for back to back multiple coats to saturation-- can be sprayed, but not efficient, but must be well brushed back on each application.3-4 coatsneeds to be applied wet-on-wet until puddling, then wipe off same......
Thank you very much for your input Steve! Kind regards, Jo
depending on how hot the sun is, you may have to apply occasionally, I use on my boat I don"t use #2 but I re rub the oil on often
Dan, thank you for your input about the teak wood oil. It's my understanding that #2 step would produce a high gloss finish...I was hoping to keep a Matt finish. Would you think if I put the chairs in the hot sun, that might keep them from being oily?Kind regards, Jo
I have used this in the past & happy that your store carries
I have used this before on my other boat teak & it is great I,m happy I found it at your store.
cape cod ,ma
I have been using Deks Olje for many years & its the best.
Deks Olje is best I have ever found to keep my teak looking good all year long.
Far superior treatment for old teak decks
2-3 coats seals the deck for one year
I don't like nicknames
I followed the manufacturers recommendations and the results were fantastic.I applied 5 coats over a pine deck
Long time user
I've used this for 20 years and keep using it primarily because of the ability to over coat year after year. However I've found that it's necessary to remove it and start over after 5 or 6 years because it will begin to release itself from the underlying wood. Removing is relatively easy with a heat gun and scraper. I'm currently on my third restart. Overcoating is necessary two or three times a year.
So far, working well
Like the finish I'm achieving with is oil. Hoping for good outdoor resilience, but summer will tell.
EASY to use, BEST finish I've ever had!
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!
So far so good
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.
WEST MIDDLESEX , PA
terrific product - so far
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.
Have used on my Daisy skiff since 1999
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.
