Product Information

Osmo's Anti-Slip Decking Oil is a clear oil for use on any timber decking and external wooden stairs where an anti-slip finish is required. Osmo's Anti Slip Decking Oil is designed for all exterior timber decking and staircases. Particularly suited to around swimming/spa pools. 

A 2 coat application, this product is designed primarily as an anti-slip finish for use in commercial situations such as an exterior timber deck attached to a cafe, which may become wet and slippery, or any areas such as around a swimming pool etc.

Osmo Anti-Slip Decking Oil contains special compressed organic particles, which are evenly dispersed within the finish, providing an anti slip surface once cured. When applied correctly, a slip resistance rating of P4 is achieved.

Additional Advice:

Being a clear finish, Osmo's Anti-Slip Decking Oil offers limited UV protection. When used as a 2 coat clear finish, a one coat rejuvenation will be required after approximately 4 - 6 months depending on exposure.

For longer re-coat times, a pigmented first coat of one of Osmo's decking oils will give greater UV protection. A top coat of Osmo Anti-Slip Decking Oil should then be applied. Where the oil has been used in this way as a top coat over one of the coloured Decking Oils, rejuvenation will required approximately every 12 -18 months.

Osmo Anti Slip Decking Oil has excellent coverage. On new, smooth hardwood decking, coverage is approximately 24 square metres per litre. A 2.5 litre can will cover 60 square metres with one coat. On grooved timber, coverage rates are reduced by approximately 30% due to the increase in surface area. Coverage rates on new, smooth softwood decking such as pine will be around 15 square metres per litre. On older timbers, the coverage rate will be less again.

The use of a roller for application of this product is not recommended.

A trial is always recommended first to determine suitability.
