Teak oil is formulated specifically for application to hardwood surfaces. The main advantages of teak oil are its high penetration into wood pores and the excellent water-repellent effect of the treated surface. Special infiltration components that make up teak oil allow it to penetrate deeply (up to 4 mm) into even exotic wood species, providing reliable protection against harmful environmental influences - moisture, ultraviolet radiation, aggressive chemical components, etc. When applied, teak oil saturates the surface layers, which prevents the pile from rising and makes the grinding operation unnecessary with a multi-layer surface coating. The consistency of the oil and additives that increase the adhesive properties ensure an even distribution of the oil on the surface of the wood, while the structure and color of the wood are perfectly manifested, acquiring semi-matt amber tones.
Teak oil (oddly enough, it has nothing to do with the tree of the same name - teak) is a multi-component impregnation containing various types of oils (mainly three types of oils: soybean, tung and linseed), plus rosin binding elements and castor oil and active additives in the form of desiccants. Teak oil contains no harmful components, it is suitable for processing toys, children's furniture, upholstery in baths and saunas, wooden surfaces for food. All these properties of teak oil make it an ideal formulation for treating wooden knife handles and other cutting tools.
Tips for using teak oil.
The wooden surface must be well cleaned, sanded and free from dirt and dust before applying teak oil. Shake the bottle of teak oil well before use. The application temperature must be above 10 degrees Celsius and the air humidity below 85%. Teak oil gives a good result even when impregnated in one layer, but of course, application in several layers can be practiced. The time between repeated applications should be more than 15 minutes, which allows the oil to penetrate into the pores of the wood to the nominal depth. Time of complete drying of teak oil at room temperature is up to 10 hours. In order to avoid damage (polymerization) of teak oil inside the storage container, it is necessary to avoid contact of the oil that remains inside the bottle with the application tool (brushes, sponges, rags, etc.) and the treated wood. Don't dip a brush or piece of wood into a jar of teak oil unless you intend to use the oil all the way. This can cause the oil inside the bottle to harden. It is better to pour teak oil (drip) onto the treated surface or brush (rags), and then rub it.
