Overview

Armourflex Ultimate UV Protection Oil is a premium blend of natural oils, and resins, incorporating the latest UV stabilising technology to protect against weathering and UV damage that causes wood to swell, twist and grey. The finish also contains active ingredients to aid in the prevention of mould, fungi, and algae growth. The transparent/clear oil and wax formula imparts excellent water repellence to both softwood and hardwood, giving a microporous finish which is resistant to flaking, peeling, cracking and blistering.

  • Long Lasting wood protection
  • Slows greying & Deterioration
  • Water-repellent oil and resins help to protect against warping and twisting
Area Interior, Exterior
Recommended Use All exterior wood, especially external joinery, luxury cabins and wooden cladding. Also suitable for some internal wooden surfaces that are at risk of UV fading such as internal window sills.

Coverage Up to 20m² per litre
Drying Time 10 Hours
Re-Coat Time 4 Hours

Clean Up Use Barrettine White Spirit. Mop up spills immediately with an absorbent cloth, then wipe with Barrettine White Spirit. Dried spills requireBarrettine Paint Panther or Peelaway7, subject to substrate compatibility. Product contains drying oils - saturate used cloths with soapy water immediately after use and lay flat outside to dry. Do not leave to dry in bundles or on combustible surfaces, as cloths can combust.
Preparation

Ensure the surface is clean, dry and free from dirt and grease.

  • Reverse wood silvering using Barrettine Wood Reviver
  • Confirm compatibility/remove previous coatings
  • Allow new wood to acclimatise in situ, up to 6 weeks for tannin-rich species
  • Remove any resinous deposits with a scraper and wipe with Barrettine Methylated Spirits
  • Fill any cracks or gaps as necessary, using a suitable wood filler
  • Sand wood to a smooth finish with medium grit sandpaper
  • Treat with Barrettine Mould & Mildew Cleaner
  • For unpreserved timber, treat with Barrettine Universal Preserver/ Barrettine Cut End Preserver
  • Stir thoroughly with a flat-bladed paint stirrer before and during application, ensuring good ventilation (preferably apply outside). Protect areas not intended to be coated with impermeable sheeting/masking tape and if in doubt, confirm suitability before use.
Application

Test Area: Depending on wood type and condition, Armourflex UV Oil will darken the surface but this will usually fade back after a period of time and when the product has fully cured. We highly recommend carrying out a small test area first to make sure you will be happy with the final finish.

  • Apply 2-3 coats evenly using a high-quality brush and/or roller. (Armourflex roller is recommended)
  • First coat – apply generously until wood is saturated
  • Subsequent coats – apply sparingly, gloss will increase
  • Allow minimum 4 hours between coats and 10 hours until fully dry
  • Protect from rain/frost until dry. Cold/damp conditions cause a hazy appearance.

Moisture content <20% - Application/drying temperature - 5-30°C - No rain forecast within 12 hours and >2 days since heavy rain - Relative humidity <80%, ideally <60%

Always follow manufacturer's instructions found on the tin

Aftercare & Storage

Wash with Barrettine Mould & Mildew Cleaner to remove dirt and kill surface mould spores, ideally twice annually.

Re-coat annually, or on the first sign of weathering. If breaches in the film begin to show, (cracks, flakes, blisters, wood greying) then a maintenance wash and re-coat are needed ASAP. Early Spring or Early Autumn is the best time to wash and recoat.

If weathering is not treated, cracking and flaking may occur. Remove the top layer by sanding, reverse any wood greying with Barrettine Wood Reviver, then re-treat with Barrettine UV Protection Oil.

Maintenance requirements will depend on wood location and position. Expect sunny, exposed, south facing and damp areas to require annual re-treatment, whilst sheltered and drier areas will need less.

Harsh chemical cleaners, alcohols or physical methods e.g. jet washing/steam cleaning are not recommended and may damage the surface.

To remove the coating completely, Peelaway7 would be recommended.

Store between 5-30°C, out of direct sunlight and protect from frost. Once opened, close lid tightly between uses. If a skin forms on the surface, this can be removed and discarded but the drying time may be decreased from then onwards. If stored correctly, unopened tins will have a shelf life of two years from date of manufacture.
