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 depth and patina qualities. Ipe Oil® hardwood deck oil stain is a durable, clear, and stain resistant hardwood oil 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, fungi, rainfall, snow, and the sun's damaging rays.

When it comes to fungi and mildew growth, we all look to linseed oil as the culprit. While Ipe Oil® does contain linseed oil as one of its components, it also contains synthetic resins that are made from linseed oil, so it's not just an oil but a blend of different things for superior results.

What does make a big difference with mildew growth is the quality and amount of fungicide used in the formula. DeckWise® uses a very high quality fungicide, and quite a lot of it.

The most important thing with any oil finish is making sure the surface is clean and dry before application. This will go a long ways towards reducing the likelihood of any mildew growth on the wood. As fungicides are only designed to inhibit the growth of mildew on the stain, not kill existing spores that may be on the wood before applying. See the DeckWise® Cleaner and Brightener for proper wood preparation.

Our hardwood oil deck stain contains a precise combination of linseed oil 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 absorption. Ipe Oil® allows wood to breathe, which inturn is essential in working with exotic hardwoods such as Tigerwood, Massaranduba, Teak, Brazilian Redwood, and many other wood species. The result following years of development is a hardwood oil finish of unmatched overall performance designed to protect ones exotic wood surfaces, rich with color and dimension.

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 “Made in America” feels so good!

How to Apply Ipe Oil®
Hardwood Deck Finish

Surface Preparation: Appropriate surface preparation of exotic hardwoods is the secret to the ideal finish and overall performance. It is extremely crucial that the surface be thoroughly clean of all grime, mildew stains, loose grain fibers and other unknown material. The longevity of Ipe Oil® could be reduced by a dirty or improperly prepared surface. Decking or hardwood siding surfaces need to be structurally solid plus completely dried out. Check to be sure that the moisture content of the hardwood is below 15 percent. If it is not, wait a minimum of 2-4 days of exposure to dry weather.

Always clean gray or dirty wood before applying Ipe Oil®. Use DeckWise® Deck & Wood Cleaner Part 1, a powder concentrate.

Allow wood to completely dry for at least 24 to 48 hours. Previously stained or treated wood should be sufficiently weathered to allow for complete penetration of Ipe Oil®. New wood should be aged at least 6-8 weeks and cleaned before applying product.

Special Instructions: Before applying, this product should be mixed thoroughly. Ensure that all settled material on bottom of can is evenly incorporated, and intermix multiple containers for an even blend.

Apply Ipe Oil® when surface temperatures are between 45F and 90F. If surface is hot to the touch, it is too hot to apply product. Do not apply product if precipitation is expected within 24-48 hours.

Brush, Roller & Rag Application: For the best results, utilize a high quality 3/8” nap roller, pad applicator or stain brush. To minimize lapping, maintain a wet edge lengthwise and do not break in the middle of boards. One coat is sufficient for most applications. Always apply oil onto the boards parallel to the grain of the wood. For exterior home furniture hand apply the finish into the hardwood grain simply by using a soft cloth. NOTE: Product not absorbed into the wood within 30-45 minutes must be thoroughly removed.

Spray Application: When spraying, back brush or roll to prevent sags and runs. Cover surrounding areas to protect from over spray. For airless spray, use .015” to .019” tip size for best results. NOTE: Product not absorbed into the wood within 30-45 minutes must be thoroughly removed.

Wipe Off Excess: Depending on temperature and direct sunlight verses shade, soak time may need adjusted. It is essential to wipe excess oil completely and attention paid to pooling after application. Continue to wipe excess oil until no surface sheen or leeching is noticeable. Wood surface must NOT look wet and will have a matte finish.

Maintenance: Clean and brighten hardwoods at least once a year with DeckWise® Deck & Wood Cleaner Part 1 and DeckWise® Deck & Wood Brightener Part 2 or use the DeckWise Deck Maintenance Kit with all the products and tools needed in one handy package. Apply Ipe Oil® for Hardwood Decks every one to two years in most applications for desired natural hardwood color.

Cleanup & Disposal: Wash rollers, brushes, spray equipment and steel wool with mineral spirits. Be sure to let air dry out of direct sunlight before disposal. Lay rags flat to dry out of sunlight or soak application utensils and any other materials in water immediately after use. Always keep the oil container closed and sealed when not in use.

WARNING! Rags, steel wool, brushes, rollers and waste soaked with Ipe Oil® may spontaneously combust if improperly piled and discarded. Immediately after each use, place all waste in a water filled metal container and seal. Dispose of empty containers and waste filled containers in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.

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.
