product information

Details

Owatrol Oil is a versatile, highly penetrating air drying oil that can be used alone or added to paint.

Used alone as a rust inhibitor it provides a tough, flexible finish, driving out excess moisture and air; displacing it from rusted metal, so stopping rust dead in its tracks.

Used alone on porous wood surfaces it will saturate and protect the wood from damage caused by moisture and prevent paint from peeling.

When added as a paint conditioner to any oil or alkyd based coatings and it will give increased wet edge time, improved flow ability, greater adhesion and unlike damaging thinners, will maintain the inherent quality of the paint without affecting its appearance or drying times allowing you to achieve a more professional finish.

preparation

Details


SURFACE PREPARATION WHEN USING OWATROL OIL AS A RUST INHIBITOR

First, surfaces must be clean, dry and free from oil, grease and other surface contaminants. Remove all scale; loose and flaking rust and old paint back to a sound surface and edge and feather in any sharp edges. Surfaces exposed to chemicals (acids, alkalis or salt deposits) should be washed using copious amounts of water or steam cleaned. Severely contaminated surfaces should be cleaned using an appropriate solvent.

Do not remove firm rust or clean the metal back to a bright finish.

SURFACE PREPARATION WHEN USING OWATROL OIL AS A PAINT CONDITIONER

First prepare the surface as per the instructions on your paint can. In addition, if not asked to ensure that you remove all loose and flaking material and treat any organic growth with fungicidal solution or a mix of 1 part water to 1 part chlorine bleach (allow bleach solution to sit for 15 minutes), rinse thoroughly and allow to dry.

Application

Details

USING OWATROL OIL AS A RUST INHIBITOR

Owatrol Oil penetrates through the rusted metal to the sound metal below, isolating it and protecting it from further rusting. As it is a penetrating oil it can be used directly on the rusted surfaces – it drives out moisture and air and stabilises the metal to protect it from future damage.

Using Owatrol Oil to aid adhesion

Owatrol Oil leaves a bonding film on all surfaces it is used on which maintains the natural look of the surface but allows enhanced adhesion, making it perfect as a foundation for primers or finishing coats. It gives excellent adhesion including on galvanised steel, aluminium, zinc, wood and more. It allows paint to be applied directly to firm rust and is heat resistant up to +175°C.

USING OWATROL OIL AS A PAINT CONDITIONER

Owatrol Oil can be mixed into oil-based paints as a paint conditioner when several great benefits. Firstly, it gives the paint rust inhibiting properties and helps prevent rust on painted surfaces – even when rust is already present. It also improves the flow and workability of the paint, maintaining the ‘wet edge’ for longer and reducing brush and roller marks. Finally, it also gives the paint a better viscosity which allows painting work to be carried out in more extreme cold, heat and windy conditions. Unlike damaging paint thinners it does all this without altering the inherent qualities or the finish of the paint.

Please note that if you are looking for a product to give this effect but for water-based paints then please use Floetrol instead as it is designed for use in any water-based paint whereas Owatrol Oil is for use in oil-based paints.

USING OWATROL OIL FOR WOOD IMPREGNATION

When used on wood surfaces Owatrol Oil saturates the wood and protects it from damage caused by moisture. It also helps to prevent paint from peeling and protects metal parts such as hinges and latches from corrosion.
