Protective Oil for Outdoor Wood: Discover Chimiver’s New Solution for DIY

How to Treat Outdoor Wood

The Family of the Impregnating Oils expands: find out RAINCOAT!

RAINCOAT  is a water-based protective oil for exterior wood that, thanks to its emulsified oils and resins, strengthens the wood’s lignin and delays its degradation (graying).

Raincoat is particularly suitable for treating outdoor wood such as window frames, gazebos, fences, tables, wooden roofs, as well as outdoor flooring (pool edges, decking, terraces, walkways).

This product is perfect for DIY enthusiasts! It’s a very simple and practical wood oil to apply using a brush.

How to Apply an Impregnating Wood Oil?

  • Before applying the wood oil, shake well the tin
  • Make sure the wood is clean, then proceed with the first coat of RAINCOAT
  • Wait 2-4 hours and apply a second coat.

No need to sand between coats!

RAINCOAT makes oiling practical and time-saving! Click here to watch the application video.

Are you using the product during the summer or on a particularly hot day?

It is recommended to apply RAINCOAT in the morning when the ambient temperature is cooler. Avoid treatment at temperatures above 30°C.

What is a Wood Impregnating Oil For?

RAINCOAT is an impregnating oil that nourishes and protects the wood from damage caused by weather over time. Lack of regular maintenance, such as constant cleaning and protection of the surface with appropriate oils and stains, can accelerate the deterioration of decking. For a more effective and long-lasting treatment, Chimiver suggests using LIOS Sundeck Soap, a nourishing detergent soap for cleaning wooden decking.
