Pine Tar Oil
Wood is the best and most natural material available. At the same time, it is alive and is affected by everything that happens around it. Weather and wind, acid rain, insects, mould and algae are examples of things that adversely affect the surface of wood. But you can avoid this if you treat your facade, patio, dock or outdoor furniture with pine tar. Auson Pine Tar oil is thin-bodied tar oil which is based on Genuine Pine Tar and the finest Gum Turpentine.
Pine Tar is nature´s own wood protection and consists among others various kinds of resins and terpenes. Resins are the tree´s natural way of protecting themselves against micro-organisms and heal injuries. Terpenes are a solvent and it accelerate the drying process. Pine Tar is produced of resin-rich pine trees in furnace.
Pine Tar oil penetrates deep into the wood, preventing it from drying out and splitting. The tar protects effectively against water penetration and delays the degradation of the timber. Light Pine Tar oil is dark brown when painting but the colour will eventually fade away as the UV rays break down the tar on the surface. This whole process can take up to a few months before the entire surface has returned to the colour that was before painting.
