    Deks Olje D1, (pronounced 'decks o-lee-ay') Saturating oil for interior and exterior hardwood with a clear satin finish – protects from within

    • Ideal for use on new oak and tropical Hardwoods – perfect for dense wood species 
    • Penetrates the wood fully and protects from within

    • Can be applied to both horizontal and vertical surfaces. 
    • Saturates and protects all woods – Soft and Hard; Oily and Dense. 
    • Excellent penetration – non-film forming. 
    • Replaces the natural oils lost from the wood – will not blacken the timber. 
    • Transparent – Enhances the natural grain of the wood. 
    • Deep penetrating, stabilises the wood – Protects against moisture ingress. 
    • Easy maintenance – no sanding or stripping. 
    • Used alone, gives a silken matt finish or overcoat with Deks Olje D2 for a high gloss finish

    "I used the Deks Olje D1 on my new herringbone pattern, oak floor. I did not want a regular floor varnish - I wanted a more natural look. Yes, I'm happy to say that the Deks Olje D1 did a great job and we're very happy with it"

    "The only oil I would recommend on our commissions, mainly Irish oak"

    By Paul Price / Woodrights Carlow, D1

    "I agonised a long time over the finish but settled on Deks Olje, a synthetic oil. I knew that my boat Grebe was not going to spend very long in the water at a time, so perhaps the finish would not be too critical. Also, at home she was to live in the garage in the same space that she was constructed (sorry, car #2) and so would not be exposed to the elements. I've been very happy with the decision. Coating with Deks Olje is very easy (though it can take a couple of days to dry properly in cold weather). In particular, touching up scratches is almost ridiculously simple - a light sand and a dab of the oil with a cloth or cheap brush and you can't detect where it's been done."

    "I had to treat an iroco rudder on my boat and heard that the deks olje d1 might do the trick. I applied 8 coats of the d1 wet on wet to saturate the wood. Turned out a great job. Very pleased with it."

    “The total restoration of the 15th century castle built by the de Burgo clan in Claregalway has taken several years and is nearing completion. Irish green oak wood was selected for all the doors, roof, gallery, windows and following the strong recommendation of the Woodright Paul Price, we treated all the oak with your Deks Olje D1 oil and we are extremely happy with it. Looks great. Call in if you are in the area.

    New wood should not be painted or oiled too soon

    The first year is the worst year for newly sawn / planed wood exposed to the elements. If you are installing new timber decking, log home, cladding etc, applying conventional wood treatments too soon is not a good idea. Newly planed wood is not very receptive to conventional treatments because the woods pores are still closed from the planer blades and natural resins etc present.

    Hardwood Headaches Cured with Deks Olje

    Hardwood Headaches Cured with Deks Olje

    As the wood is dense, hardwood requires a different approach as regards oiling, varnishing etc.

    Teak windows and doors and sometimes various types of hardwood decking are is the most common hardwood we encounter with maintenance problems.

    The biggest problem is most finishes cannot penetrate into the hardwood properly. This can be worsened by the presence of previous coatings or new wood that still has its own oils present near the surface. Treating new teak etc.

    As mentioned above, new teak has a lot of its own oil and before you apply any coating such as teak oil, varnish etc you should first ‘wash’ the teak using several clean absorbent cloths and methylated spirit to remove any surface oils present.

    Apply coating after that and you can expect a longer lasting result.

    Boats of all shapes and sizes are becoming more and more popular with people who want to get away from it all. Boats bring their own unique joys and experiences. As applies to land based property, boats too need their share of looking after. In this section we have endeavoured to show you a broad selection of situations ranging from simple rowing boats, sailing boats to fancy yachts and even sailing ships. Some of the information can cross over to regular non-marine things such as wooden furni-ture, plastics etc so you may find it useful.

    As’ good as it gets…

    The ‘late’ Irish training sailing ship The Asgard has had its timbers protected and maintained for many years with Deks Olje D1 and D2. Primarily the masts, hand rails and wheelhouse.

    The well known, well travelled and now retired Royal Yacht Britannia has had some of its woodwork protected for many decades with DEKS OLJE D1 and D2 - primarily the handrails, seen here in various shots.

    Michael O’Boyle from Killybegs built this beautiful wooden boat using larch. The attention to detail was amazing. Michael chose Deks Olje D1 to finish it off in style. Michael was also heavily involved in the building of the well known Jeannie Johnston sailing ship and he used the Deks Olje on that also.
