Wooden furniture is widely used by all households because of its natural beauty and strong protection. However, wooden furniture is not easy to maintain, therefore we still need to constantly remember to keep it looking fresh and to clean wooden furniture as part of our daily household responsibilities.
Timber oil, different from wood oil, is a natural plant-derived product. It is suitable for the surface treatment of natural materials and absorbent materials. It is mainly used for oiling, waxing, polishing, and repairing the surface of various types of wood (including softwood and hardwood). It can be used for the surface treatment of pottery clay products, coarse ceramic tiles, composite boards, OSB boards, etc. Its main components are divided into linseed oil, castor oil, soybean oil, carnauba wax, candelilla wax, and so on. Although the formula of each manufacturer is different, natural vegetable oil and vegetable wax must be the main component of a can of excellent timber oil.
Benefits Of Using The Timber Oils
- Easy To Repair
As the oil can penetrate the wood, it can deeply moisturize and maintain it; wax combined with oil treatment can allow the wood fiber to enhance the surface hardness, waterproof and antifouling, so for the wood this combination can provide the best beautification and protection whilst enhancing the surface hardness of the wood eliminating a paint film on the wooden surface, meaning it is not easy to crack, warp, or fall off.
- Gives A Natural Texture
Timber oils will not form a paint film on the surface of the wood and can fully reflect the natural texture and natural texture of the wood. By keeping these timber oils up-to-date with your wooden furniture, the moisture of the wood itself will become prominent, aside from aesthetic benefits, this can also reduce the expansion and contraction of the wood and is suitable for humid environments.
- Protects Change of Damages Caused By Weather
Timber oils adapt to various climatic conditions such as dry, humid, high temperature and low temperature, suitable for the maintenance and decoration of various indoor and outdoor wooden furniture, wooden houses, pavilions, fences, and ancient buildings, and even toys, etc., and have the functions of waterproof, moisture-proof, anti-corrosion and insect-proof.

The wood can be painted once at room temperature and left to dry for 16-24 hours, and it can be painted no more than twice. It can be mastered without special professional skills and training and is very suitable for DIY, especially starting off with applying decking oil in your backyard.
- Natural Breathing Or Air Permeability
For wood to breathe freely it not only means ensuring the stability of the wood but also allows some of the internal content of the wood (scientifically ascertained: there are many beneficial inclusions in the wood) to be released slowly, in a natural and healthy environment. By using the correct timber oil products, the yellowing and redness of coniferous wood and light-colored broad-leaved wood can be prevented.
Timber oil does not contain phenol, formaldehyde, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, heavy metals, and other harmful chemical components to the human body. It is a natural and environmentally friendly surface wiper and is widely used in developed countries and regions around the world. Timber oil is not equal to wood oil and many businesses often confuse the two. Timber oil is better in terms of durability and cost.
