Why Choose Ipe Oil?
As we all know, water can be lumber’s biggest enemy. This robust hardwood oil stain penetrates down deep into the dense, resin-rich fibers of hardwoods to highlight the all-natural wood grain depth and patina qualities. Ipe Oil® hardwood deck oil stain is a durable, clear, and stain resistant hardwood oil finish. Our hardwood stain utilizes Transoxide pigments for powerful U.V. defense and extragrain enhancement. This deck oil formula provides advanced safeguards from the destructive effects of severe temperatures, humidity, mildew, mold, fungi, rainfall, snow, and the sun’s damaging rays.
When it comes to fungi and mildew growth, we all look to linseed oil as the culprit. While Ipe Oil® does contain linseed oil as one of its components, it also contains synthetic resins that are made from linseed oil, so it’s not just an oil but a blend of different things for superior results.
What does make a big difference with mildew growth is the quality and amount of fungicide used in the formula. DeckWise® uses a very high quality fungicide, and quite a lot of it.
The most important thing with any oil finish is making sure the surface is clean and dry before application. This will go a long ways towards reducing the likelihood of any mildew growth on the wood. As fungicides are only designed to inhibit the growth of mildew on the stain, not kill existing spores that may be on the wood before applying. Please prep wood prior to sealing.
Our hardwood oil deck stain contains a precise combination of linseed oil for maximum wood grain penetration, oil solids for longevity and organic oils for color depth and water repelling features. Translucent iron oxide pigments are additionally added to warrant UV absorption. Ipe Oil® allows wood to breathe,which inturn is essential in working with exotic hardwoods such as Tigerwood, Massaranduba, Teak, Brazilian Redwood, and many other wood species. The result following years of development is a hardwood oil finish of unmatched overall performance designed to protect ones exotic wood surfaces, rich with color and dimension.
Most deck finish coatings form a film on the surface to offer natural wood color and keep moisture out. Some brands may last just a few months or two before they turn unsightly. Nevertheless many film coatings fail, and also require sanding or stripped before the hard wood can be re-coated.
Ipe Oil® then again, penetrates into the wood grain and defends from within and is not a surface film that will bubble, crack, or peel. Decking and hardwood siding restoration is a simple clean, brighten and re-coat. No major sanding or stripping should be needed. And hardwood which is left to discolor to a silver patina gray after coating, can be effortlessly restored to a gorgeous natural timber look even after many years of weathering.
