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:

  • 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

I have used this product for about 20 years.


I love this product !!!




Third or fourth time purchasing


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.


NJ & Vermont


I would buy this product again .


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 .


Cape Coral, Fl




For my teak trim




I would definitely buy agian


Teak dries out very quickly in the sun and salt air.this product shines and brings out the true luster of the teak wood with just a few coats

Perfect timing



An awesome treatment for teak!


Extremely easy to apply and no need to wait between coats!


Harwichport, MA


I have been buying this product for 30 plus years


I use this product on all my teak wood including my swim board ... It last all season in the sun and I lightly sand each year (8 month boating season ) and put on a couple of coats and I am good for another year. It has a real high gloss that lasts... Dislikes - the container is junk .... I transfer it to paint cans made in the USA that will re-seal. Do use #1 first to prep the wood before using #2


Marblehead, Ohio


Simply the best treatment for your boat's teak!


Deks Olje contains no pigment so the natural color and markings of your teak are displayed magnificently. It's is Incredibly easy to use. Wet on wet and no sanding needed between coats.


Harwich, MA


great product


I love this oil.My days of varnishing are over. I built a 16' wood Dory 12 years ago and this is all I use on any bright work which is floor boards, seats and rub rails. Goes on easy and fast. After awhile you won't need it every year case of build up.Great patina.This year I just wiped it lightly with a rag right out of can and ready to go.I like the satin for it goes with my boat.
