Textrol saturating wood oil finish

Textrol is a penetrating oil finish that is designed to revitalise weather-beaten, dried-out decks and exterior wood. Textrol restores the rich, warm appearance of natural wood and beautifies exterior wood.

Developed to penetrate deep into the wood, it protects against damage caused by moisture and ultraviolet rays and provides a mildew resistant finish that will not crack, peel or flake. When Textrol is first applied, the wood will darken to a rich matt colour, and then gradually lighten depending on the intensity of sun exposure.

Features & benefits:

  • Protects and enhances the beauty of exterior wood

  • Excellent penetration
  • Non film building – no peeling, no flaking
  • Mildew resistant finish
  • Easy maintenance – no sanding or stripping required

SI106 saturating wood finish

SI106 is a waterborne, penetrating wood finish for industrial application. Based on a mix of alkyd and acrylic resins, SI106 is non-film forming, so will not crack, peel or flake. Saturating, sealing and stabilising the wood, it minimises cracking, warping and other damage caused by the sun and moisture.

Containing premium, UV absorbing trans-oxide pigments, SI106 provides a long lasting, rich matt finish on soft and hardwoods, accentuating the natural beauty of the wood.
