Ideal as extra protection for softwood species for the exterior. A clear wood impregnation which serves as a preventive protection against blue stain, rot and insect attack.
Penetrates deeply into the wood – prevents swelling and shrinkage and is extremely water repellent with a very low odour during application and is completely odourless when dry.
As the name suggests, this is a base coat, not a finishing treatment. To ensure longstanding beauty and achieve full protection of the wood, surfaces must be treated with an appropriate OSMO external wood finish.
