Textrol: The Number 1 Oil For Exterior Wood

Owatrol Textrol is a deeply penetrating oil, perfect for exterior softwood and hardwood on both horizontal and vertical surfaces.

Textrol does not hide the grain but instead enhances it and is available in 7 shades including clear. This is perfect for if you want to offer your wood the best protection, without having to change the colour of your wood.

Because Textrol is a deeply penetrative oil, this means it protects the wood from within, offering the best type of protection. Other products on the market sit on top of the wood’s surface, which will crack, peel and flake off, leaving the wood below exposed.


Apply the first coat of Textrol and allow it to penetrate into the wood – approximately 15-30 minutes.

Then apply a second application and again, allow it to penetrate for a further 15-30 minutes. If required repeat this procedure until the wood is saturated i.e. will accept no more oil.

Make sure you do not allow Textrol to become touch dry or dry between coats.

Once the timber is saturated, brush out or wipe up any excess product that has not penetrated to avoid shiny spots.

Remember that Textrol is not a surface coating, its place is within the wood not on the surface.

  1. Just applied Textrol for second year, unfortunately it has dried with some shiny spots and I wondered how to safely reduce the dried surface oil?

    1. Hi there Bill,

      I’m sorry to hear this has happened – can I please ask what you used to clean the surface prior to re-application of the Textrol?

      All the best,

  2. Dear Owatrol,

    Just embarking on sorting out some new teak garden chairs with seasonite then textrol weathered grey. If I sand with 80grit then wash clean (with water then allow to dry) the furniture to remove any mill glaze/open the pores before applying the seasonite – can I then move to the textrol promptly – rather than waiting 6 months for the wathering to resolve the potential mill glaze . Was thinking to let the seasonite dry/soak in for a few days before moving on to the textrol oil finish.

    I had taken this guidance from here:

    Achieving a weathered grey look to a bench without losing protection

    but have since seen that you reccomend waiting 6 – 12 months before applying finish – but this will then incur a further clean up prior to the textrol applicaiton in 6 months.


    1. Hi there Richard,

      If you are going to sand the surface to remove the mill glaze, so as long as this is done correctly, there would be little need to use Seasonite at all and you can just apply the Textrol.

      Please feel free to give us a call on: 01582 592707 or send us an email at: sales@owatroluk.com if you would like to discuss the matter further.

      All the best,
