Wood oil for exterior wood - how to use it?

Exterior wood oil application: simple, fast and efficient wood surface treatment

In our previous blog post, you learned about the exterior oil in the Rubio Monocoat product line, Hybrid Wood Protector. In short, it is an exterior wood oil that colours and protects exterior wood surfaces in one single layer. Our coloured wood oils are UV-protected and give the wood a water-repellent effect, providing long-lasting and effective protection against the weather. They are available in a wide range of colours and the different colours can be combined to use exactly the shade that really suits your yard, garden or patio.

Now let’s see how to work with this exterior wood oil, how easy and fast surface treatment can be when using Rubio Monocoat oil.


Of course, we only recommend the use of Rubio Monocoat products for the preparation and treatment of the surface, as this product family has been developed in the same laboratory, so we can be sure that by supporting each other, we can achieve maximum surface protection with them.

Whether you want to oil a new or previously treated wood surface, we strongly recommend that you clean it thoroughly first. The Exterior Wood Cleaner developed for this purpose is best suited for this purpose. This powerful outdoor surface cleaner also removes dirt, green discoloration and traces of previous surface treatment - if done with oil. If the wood surface has been painted before, thorough sanding is required.

For outdoor wood oil on vertical surfaces, we recommend Sunprimer HWP as an optional primer, which can give your surface extra UV protection and a more intense color. It is advisable to apply it after thorough cleaning and before oiling. Stir the primer thoroughly before use and spread evenly on the surface with a cloth, brush, or spray gun.

Oiling the wood surface

Always mix the Hybrid Wood Protector thoroughly before use until a completely homogeneous material is obtained. If you need several bottles of oil, we recommend pouring the required amount into a suitable sized container and mixing thoroughly. If the optional primer has been used or you want the treated wood surface to be even more durable, mix 10% setting accelerator (B-Component) with the oil.

If thoroughly mixed and our surface is dry after preparation, we can apply the oil with a flat brush or an RMC Brush Standard 220. Distribute the oil evenly on the wood surface and allow to set for 10 minutes. Then smooth the surface with the same brush without applying additional product. Allow the oil to act again for 5 minutes, then wipe off any excess oil with a cloth.

Allow the surface to dry for 24 hours for approx. It takes 7 days.

Useful tips and tricks for surface treatment

  • Never dilute our outdoor wood oil.

  • Do not work in direct sunlight or below 10 ° C.

  • Do not cover the surface or place heavy objects on it until it is completely dry.

  • Horizontal wood surfaces should be rubbed dry after treatment if rain is expected within 24 hours.

  • Shawls and clothing soaked in the product may ignite spontaneously - so it is very important to immerse them in water after use before disposing of them.
