As we all know, water can be lumber's biggest enemy. This robust hardwood oil stain penetrates down deep into the dense, resin-rich fibers of hardwoods to highlight the all-natural wood grain qualities. Ipe Oil® hardwood deck oil finish is a durable, semi-transparent, and stain resistant hardwood finish. Our hardwood stain utilizes Transoxide pigments for powerful U.V. defense and extra grain enhancement. This deck oil formula provides advanced safeguards from the destructive effects of severe temperatures, humidity, mildew, mold, rainfall, snow, and the sun's damaging rays.
Our hardwood oil deck stain contains a precise combination of ingredients for maximum wood grain penetration, oil solids for longevity and organic oils for color depth and water repelling features. Translucent iron oxide pigments are additionally added to warrant UV damage. Ipe Oil® allows wood to breathe, which in turn is essential in working with exotic hardwoods such as Tigerwood, Massaranduba, Teak, Brazilian Redwood, and many other hardwood species. The results, following years of development, is a hardwood oil finish of unmatched overall performance designed to protect exotic wood surfaces, rich with color and dimension.
While Ipe Oil® does contain linseed oil, it also contains a fungicide, and that fungicide inhibits the growth of fungus (i.e. mold and mildew) on the surface of the wood coating. This material is in the product to inhibit the growth of fungus on the surface of the coating, not to kill any existing growth, and not to prevent the growth on the wood itself. Note: it does not kill existing fungus/mildew, or is it a "preservative".
A very important objective with any exterior wood oil finish is to make sure the surface is clean and dry before application. This will go a long way towards reducing the likelihood of any mildew growth on the wood surface. As fungicides are only designed to inhibit the growth of mildew in the stain. We highly suggest properly cleaning the wood surface to kill existing spores that may be on the wood before applying. See the DeckWise® Cleaner and Brightener for proper wood preparation.
Most deck finish coatings form a film on the surface to offer natural wood color and keep moisture out. Some brands may last just a few months or two before they turn unsightly. Nevertheless many film coatings fail, and also require sanding or stripped before the hard wood can be re-coated.
Ipe Oil® then again, penetrates into the wood grain and defends from within and is not a surface film that will bubble, crack, or peel. Decking and hardwood siding restoration is a simple clean, brighten and re-coat. No major sanding or stripping should be needed. And hardwood which is left to discolor to a silver patina gray after coating, can be effortlessly restored to a gorgeous natural timber look even after many years of weathering.
When deck builders need their customer's hardwood projects to last 75 years or more and maintain its natural beauty, they turn to Ipe Oil® deck oil. 1 gallon of Ipe Oil® Hardwood Deck Oil covers approximately 250 ft2 and is formulated as an oil-based natural wood finish with a 250 VOC. To say “American Pride” sounds so good!

WARNING: Do not leave rags balled up, they will catch fire or self-combust. Rags, brushes, rollers, steel wool or waste soaked with Ipe Oil® Hardwood Deck Finish may also spontaneously catch fire if improperly discarded. Immediately after each use, place waste materials in a sealed, water-filled metal container. Dispose of waste material and empty cans or unused portion in accordance with, local, state, and federal regulations.
Our Ipe Oil® contains linseed oil, which many DIY people and contractors use to stain wood decking, furniture or fences each year. Linseed oil is a natural product extracted out of the flaxseed.
The unique properties of linseed oil is to soak into the grain of wood accentuating the grain giving it a perpetual “wet Look,” otherwise known as “popping the grain.” Since linseed oil naturally has a yellowish tint, we add a pinch of color to our Ipe Oil® to improve the natural wood characteristics.
Liquid linseed oil in its container is no more hazardous than any other byproduct oil. The linseed oil by itself is not necessarily the problem. It’s the actual petroleum based solvents used to thin the linseed oil that is extremely combustible and flammable.
If a wood finish containing linseed oil is on a cotton rag for application, fire could spontaneously occur at as low as 120 degrees. That’s with no external spark. These thinning solvents in the linseed oil can generate heat through exothermic reactions with oxygen.
Rags and other application materials left in a pile, balled up or left unattended are a real problem. As air molecules combine with the linseed oil’s solvents, the resulting chemical reaction will accelerate the build up of heat. Since the linseed oil on rags becomes concentrated when in a pile or balled up, this in turn can spontaneously ignite the rag, which the linseed oil’s solvents then act as the fuel.
The reason we don’t see the finished wood with linseed oil catch fire, is because the linseed oil is spread out. There is no chance for heat to build up, hence, no fire.
Great care must always be taken when using and wood finish containing linseed oil. Always allow application materials to dry completely by laying them flat to dry on a non-flammable surface, out of the sun and heat. The best disposal method is to then place the dry rags in a canister of water and tightly seal the lid before you take it to your local hazardous waste site for disposal.Label Warning Avertissement d'étiquette Etiqueta de Advertencia
