It has taken some time but we have finally been given authorisation to officially promote the project with the Olympic Velodrome. Some may be aware but many will not, that Textrol Oil was originally applied to the Western Red Cedar cladding on the external sides of the Velodrome in 2011. Having visited site last week for the maintenance contract which launches this month, the timber is still looking great and this is thanks to the excellent protective qualities of Textrol Oil.

Having just spent £6k on having the paving installed, David tried many different chemicals which had little or…Continue

We recently worked with a architect who had a client that wanted to achieve the 'weathered grey' appearance from the outset. The timber used was oak and the client wanted to have as little maintenance as possible.
We specified Owatrol AP2 which offers the weathered grey appearance and because it is produced with Owatrol Oil technology, it will prevent movement in the timber from transformation of moisture. The other point to consider was as the timber being used was oak, there is…Continue

We have been itching to announce this as the most prestigious project to date in the UK for Owatrol products.

For some time now Owatrol wood care solutions have been used to maintain the timber on the Royal Yacht Britannia. I realise that this is not decking related as such, but offers further insight as to the quality and applications for using Owatrol oils to protect and preserve timber.
The key products being used for the yacht are Deks Olje D1 & D2 along with Net-trol Wood Cleaner & Colour Restorer. D1 is used heavily in marine applications as it is suitable both above and below…Continue

For those of you that have not yet experienced the affects that Owatrol can make to old, weathered timber, then I hope this can offer an insight...
