Gloss Deks Olje is a penetrating oil that can be used as an alternative to marine varnish. It penetrates deep into the heart of the wood for a rich, natural & long-lasting finish.
Available in a range of sizes, gloss finish Deks Olje keeps wood in pristine condition and protects it with powerful fungus and rot inhibitors.
Deks Olje weathers but will not lift. With a periodic touch-up, Deks Olje Marine Varnish will give many years of service without the need to strip back to bare wood.
- Apply Deks Olje #1 carefully, following directions.
- Use Deks Olje #2 anywhere above waterline and below deck.
NOTE: Deks Olje #2 may be too slippery for a deck, so many boaters prefer protecting traffic decks with Deks Olje #1 only.
