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.

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
  • Setting up time before use : 3 days
  • Easy Clean-up : Mineral-Spirits
  • Years of service with no stripping back to bare wood. Even if wood is badly neglected, cleaning and reapplication will restore original brightness.
  • Penetrating oils go deep. Water cannot get beneath surface. This means Deks Olje weathers but does not lift like varnish.

  • You don't have to be a professional applicator to get pro results

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

Great Results!!!


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.




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.


Glenwood, MD

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 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.
