Maintain the natural beauty of wood!

Valtti wood oil is a traditional solvent based treatment which enables you to protect and enhance exterior timber surfaces. When applied wood oil protects timber from the adverse effects of moisture and dirt.

One application is enough

Traditional Valtti Puuöljy (Wood Oil) is a tintable product for terraces, stairs, jetties, and garden and balcony furniture. Wood oil is absorbed well into new or previously oiled board surfaces.

Protection for board surfaces

Wood oil is suitable for the treatment of bare wood or previously oiled surfaces. 

Tinted protection for wood

Treating timber with Valtti wood oil deepens and evens out the the natural colour of the wood, when tinted Valtti wood oil slows down the effects of UV .

Weather resistance
We recommend to use a tinted product, which provides better weather resistance than a colourless product.

Application conditions
The surface to be treated must be dry and relative wood moisture content less than 20 %, as damp wood will not absorb oil, which dries slowly. As impregnated wood is often damp, we recommend treatment after a 6-month drying period.
During treatment and drying, air, surface, and product temperature must be at least +5 º C and relative air humidity less than 80%.
Untreated surfaces:
Remove all dirt, dust and loose material from the surface. Wash off mould with Tikkurila Homeenpoisto (Mould Removal) or Tikkurila Tehopesu (Super Clean) according to instructions.
Surface previously treated with wood oil:
Remove loose material from the surfaces with a scraper or wire brush. Clean and wash if necessary with Homeenpoisto (Mould Removal) or Tehopesu (Super Clean) according to instructions. If a clear film remains on the surface, remove it before treatment.
Stir Valtti Wood Oil thoroughly before and frequently during use. Spread oil with a brush or sponge tightly so that all of the oil is absorbed into the wood evenly. To avoid overlapping, apply continuous strokes the entire length of the board covering the whole surface evenly. Apply one coat on garden furniture. Porous wood might need two coats. When treating jetties take care that the oil does not end up in the water.  Apply the second coat as soon as the oil is absorbed and the surface is dry, after few hours depending on the weather conditions. Oil treatment will make the wood colour darker. Carry out maintenance when necessary. Surfaces continuously exposed to the weather may need to be treated annually.
Cleaning of tools
White Spirit 1050 or Tikkurila Pensselipesu (Tool Cleaner)
Maintenance instructions
After application, treat the surface carefully for the first week to allow it to achieve the final hardness and durability. After two days, gently clean the surface with a soft brush or mop if necessary.
Clean dirty surfaces with Tikkurila Huoltopesu Maintenance Cleaner (1 part of Maintenance Cleaner to 10 parts water). Remove stains and clean very dirty surfaces with a stronger solution of Maintenance Cleaner (1:1). After washing, rinse the surfaces and allow to dry.

Valtti wood finishes and wood oils colour card

Wooden surfaces are exposed to unrelenting weathering from sunshine and humidity. Semi-transparent wood finishes protect wood surfaces against the weather, retarding the adverse effects of moisture and UV-light, without covering up the beautiful wood grain.

Product consumption, when surface is...


Consumption varies depending on the surface to be treated and its condition. Absorption is affected e.g. by the surface roughness, moisture content level of timber and porosity. For example, log surface that has been untreated for a long time takes a lot more wood finish than a new surface to be treated.

When calculating the consumption, note that the consumption for round logs is 1.5 times higher than normal. Please also note the corner joints in the surface area.

Rounding up

As the filling rate is usually 90% (space for tinting), it is good to round up the liter amounts and reserve enough of the product so that the work is not interrupted unnecessarily, and colour will be even.
