Osmo UV-Protection Oil Tints for Exterior

(11 customer reviews)



All exterior woods grey into a patina colour over time, however UV-Protection Oil Tints have been developed to maintain the wood’s natural colour with the use of pigments to optimally match the wood’s natural characteristics.
Ideal for windows, doors, cladding, fencing and other vertically structured joinery (not recommended for flat surfaces such as decking).
Natural oil-based and microporous finish does not crack, flake, peel or blister. Water and dirt resistant, moisture regulating and reduces wood swelling and shrinkage.
3L Promotional tins of Osmo UV Protection Oil Tints are mixed to order and are non-refundable, Osmo UV Protection Oil Clear Satin 420 Extra is used as the base 
  • Approx. coverage: 18m²/L with one coat
  • No. of coats: 2
  • Application temperature: +5°C to 35°C
  • Drying time:  12hrs.
  • Sizes: 0.125L, 0.750L, 2.5L
  • Very water and dirt resistant
  • Reduces wood swelling and shrinkage
  • Resists growth of algae, mildew and fungal
  • Microporous, breathable finish which does not crack, peel, flake or blister
  • No sanding necessary for future applications


  • UV-Protection Oils are recommended only for vertically structured timber (drip angle min. 10Âş) to enable the rain to drip off rather than remain on the wood’s surface for prolonged lengths of time.
  • The high-energy UV rays of the sun destroy the lignin in wood: it greys. Up to now, only wood finishes with colour pigments could possibly prevent this effect. With Osmo UV-Protection Oil, you have the possibility to protect your wood almost invisibly. UV-Protection Oil contains special ingredients that stall the greying effect by 12 times (UV factor 12). For a reliable UV protection, the wood finish must be applied more generously than other wood stains from Osmo.
  • Recommended application amount is approx. 55 ml/m².
  • So that no micro-organisms, like mould, algae or moss, can stick to a wood finish and cause unsightly discolourations, biocidal active ingredients for a superficial film protection can be added. Biocidal ingredients are fine-tuned exactly so that a harmful effect for people can be largely eliminated. Yet, many consumers prefer wood finishes without biocides, if it is not necessary. Therefore, Osmo also offers UV-Protection Oil without biocides (410 Clear).
  • Oak contains a high acid content within its natural tannins and as a result causes the timber to blacken during exposure to cold and moist environments – especially during the winter periods. More frequent care and maintenance is required, particularly in its first couple of years of exposure to the elements, to maintain its decorative appearance.
  • Many wood species contain water-soluble coloured extractives which may leach out naturally when weathered.

  Product Information

  Safety Information


Recommended use: Vertical wood surfaces in outdoor areas

For all other wood types not mentioned, always trial apply first.

  • Oak: UV-Protection Oil Tints 425 Oak (for a darker shade) and 429 Natural (for a lighter shade) are optically suitable.
  • Beech
  • Ash
  • Alder
  • Birch
  • Thermowood and Thermally Modified Timber (TMT): prone to grey very fast and therefore application of a tint/colour is recommended within the first two weeks after processing. Always trial apply the tint/colour to reach a harmonious colour tone with Thermowood / TMT.

Also Recommended

For the following wood types, WR Base Coat is recommended before use.

  • Douglas Fir: UV-Protection Oil Tints 427 Douglas Fir is optically suitable.
  • Pine: UV-Protection Oil Tints 424 Spruce is optically suitable.
  • Spruce: UV-Protection Oil Tints 424 Spruce is optically suitable.
  • Accoya® and Kebony®


For the following wood types, a weathering period is recommended. New or sanded wood requires at least 12 weeks (approximate) exposure to the exterior elements before application.

After the weathering period, it’s generally recommended to de-grey the surface with Osmo Wood Reviver Power-Gel and clean the surface from the extractive content before application, always trial apply!

For all other ingredient-rich hardwood species not mentioned may require a varied period of exposure. Please contact us for further information.

  • Cedar: UV-Protection Oil Tints 428 Cedar is optically suitable.
  • Iroko
  • Mahogany
  • Teak
  • Walnut
  • Ipe
  • Merbau
  • Wenge
  • Rosewood
  • Sycamore
  • Sapele: 3-4 weeks exposure
  • Larch: 2 weeks exposure. Application of WR Base Coat is recommended before use. Then, UV-Protection Oil Tints 426 Larch is optically suitable.


  • Approx. 12 hours in Ideal application temperature: +10°C to 35°C. Over application and/or low ventilation can increase the drying times.


  • 18m²/L with one coat, 2 coats required


  • Stir well using a flat stirring stick or spatula. Failure to mix the colour and all ingredients could lead to an increased patchiness.
  • Ideally the new surface will be finished to a final P120 grit sand paper grade. This is the optimal grade for applying Osmo UV Protection-Oils.
  • For ingredient-rich wood species (eg: Cedar, Iroko, Teak, Mahogany etc.), please allow 12 weeks weathering prior to application. Weathering will improve absorbency for the Osmo product to penetrate in to the wood. If the wood has greyed after weathering, use Osmo Wood Reviver Power Gel to refresh the colour once more. Avoid refreshing colour through sanding as this will reveal fresh wood ingredients, and the surface will need to be weathered once more
  • Osmo UV Protection-Oil Tints 429 Natural is not recommended for use on ingredient-rich (dark/reddish) wood species because it is visible as slightly white chalky surface. A trial application is always recommended. Over application of Osmo UV Protection-Oil Tints 429 Natural may lead to the inherent white pigments becoming visible. The product may appear more white on very textured / rough sawn surfaces. Remove excess white before allowing the surface to dry.
