What is CUTEK?

CUTEK decking oil is a high-grade wood protection solution favoured by tradies and DIY enthusiasts across Australia for its top-notch effectiveness in preserving timber decking. Born from a blend of Aussie know-how and cutting-edge research, this oil penetrates deep into the timber, providing robust protection against the unforgiving Aussie elements — from the fierce outback sun to the dampness of coastal areas.

Unlike some surface coatings that merely sit atop the timber, CUTEK oil works from within, helping to minimise warping, cupping, and splitting. This characteristic ensures that decks can stand up to the often harsh Australian climate, while also showcasing the natural beauty of the wood grain. With a barbie and outdoor living being nearly sacred in Australian culture, a product like CUTEK decking oil is invaluable for maintaining the decks that host these gatherings.

It's typically user-friendly, too; applying it is a pretty straightforward affair, which is just as well because Aussies appreciate a no-fuss, no-bull approach. The oil is designed to be reapplied over time without the need for sanding back, saving heaps of time and effort. Plus, it comes in a variety of tints to match or enhance the natural colour of the timber, making it a versatile choice for homes and commercial spaces alike.

What are the benefits of CUTEK?

CUTEK decking oil provides a suite of benefits designed to maintain and enhance the longevity and appearance of wooden decking. Here are some of the key advantages:

  • Deep penetration: CUTEK oils are known to penetrate deeply into timber, as opposed to merely coating the surface. This deep penetration helps in protecting the wood from the inside out, significantly increasing its resistance to damage from environmental factors.
  • Protection against elements: The oil provides robust protection against the harsh Australian climate, including UV rays, rain, and temperature extremes, which can cause wood to fade, crack, or rot.
  • Moisture regulation: By allowing the wood to breathe, CUTEK oil helps in managing the moisture content of the timber, reducing the risk of swelling and shrinkage that can lead to structural issues like warping or splitting.
  • Enhancement of natural beauty: The oil can enhance the natural grain and colour of the wood, adding to the aesthetic appeal of the decking without overpowering its natural characteristics.
  • Longevity: Treated decks tend to last longer, as the oil helps to preserve the timber's integrity over time, reducing the need for costly repairs or replacements.
  • Easy maintenance: Decks treated with CUTEK oil are easier to maintain. The oil can be reapplied as needed without the need for sanding down the previous layer, saving time and labour.
  • Variety of finishes: CUTEK oils often come in a range of tints, allowing for customization according to the type of wood and the desired final appearance.
  • Sustainability: As the awareness of eco-friendly practices rises, products like CUTEK decking oil, which are designed to prolong the life of timber without frequent replacement, contribute to sustainable living practices.
  • Mould and fungus resistance: The oil helps to protect against fungal growth and mould, which are common problems in the Australian climate, especially in humid or wet areas.
  • Versatility: Suitable for a wide range of timber types, CUTEK decking oil can be used on new and old decks, as well as on other wooden structures, making it a versatile option for various outdoor projects.

By choosing CUTEK decking oil, homeowners and professionals are investing in a product that’s designed to preserve the life and look of their wooden decking, ensuring it can stand up to the Aussie lifestyle and weather with ease.

Key questions...

Is CUTEK a stain or an oil?

CUTEK is primarily an oil-based wood preservative, not a traditional stain. Its formulations are designed to penetrate deeply into timber, protecting and stabilizing the wood from within, rather than merely coating the surface. While CUTEK oil enhances the natural beauty of the wood and can come with colourtones that provide a staining effect, its primary function is to preserve the wood rather than to simply colour it. The colourtones available with CUTEK oils add a tint to the timber, allowing the grain and texture to show through, which is a different approach compared to traditional opaque stains.

Does CUTEK need two coats?

Yes, for optimal protection, CUTEK generally recommends applying two coats of their decking oil. The first coat penetrates and stabilizes the timber, while the second coat ensures an even finish and maximum durability, particularly for new or untreated wood that's exposed to the harsh Australian environment.

How long does CUTEK stain last?

The longevity of CUTEK's protective qualities can vary, but typically, a CUTEK finish can last up to two years or more before reapplication is needed, depending on factors like the timber species, timber colour, exposure to the elements, and foot traffic. Regular maintenance can extend this period significantly.

Is CUTEK water or oil-based?

CUTEK wood preservatives are oil-based. They are designed to penetrate deep into the timber, providing long-lasting protection against the elements. The oil-based formula helps to repel water and resist the damage caused by moisture, making it highly effective for preserving wood in various environmental conditions.

How does CUTEK work?

CUTEK works by deeply penetrating the timber, nourishing the wood and providing protection from the inside out. It helps to control moisture, reducing swelling and shrinkage, and thereby minimising warping and splitting. It also forms a barrier against fungi, decay, and the damaging effects of the sun's UV rays.

Can you spray CUTEK oil?

Yes, you can apply CUTEK oil using either a garden sprayer or airless paint sprayer. This method can be efficient for large areas, ensuring even coverage and deeper penetration. After spraying, it's often recommended to back-brush the oil to ensure it's well absorbed and to avoid pooling on the surface.

What kind of oil is CUTEK?

CUTEK is a professional grade wood preservative oil. It's formulated with a unique blend of oils and resins that deeply penetrate into the wood, providing long-lasting protection against the elements. It's specifically designed to condition and stabilise timber, thereby extending its life and maintaining its natural appearance.

How long does it take for CUTEK oil to dry?

CUTEK oil typically dries to the touch in 24 hours under ideal conditions, which include moderate temperatures, good ventilation, and low humidity. Complete curing and maximum protection are achieved over several days, and it is usually recommended to avoid heavy foot traffic on the deck for at least 48 hours after application.

How many litres of decking oil do I need?

The coverage of decking oil varies by product, but on average, you might expect to use approximately 1 litre of CUTEK oil per 6 to 8 square metres for the first coat, and up to 10 to 12 square metres for the second coat. Always check the manufacturer's recommendations for the specific product you're using.

So is CUTEK worth it?

Determining whether CUTEK is worth it depends on various factors, including your specific needs, the environment your timber is exposed to, and your expectations for performance and aesthetics.

CUTEK oils are highly regarded for their deep penetration into wood, which offers long-term protection against the harsh Australian climate. This characteristic can help reduce common issues such as warping, cupping, and splitting. For those with timber decking or outdoor wooden structures, CUTEK's ability to enhance the natural beauty of the wood while providing a durable shield against UV rays, moisture, and wood decay could be a significant advantage.

Moreover, CUTEK's user-friendly application and maintenance — with no need for sanding between coats — makes it a time-saver and reduces labour costs, which is a big plus for both DIY enthusiasts and professional tradies. The range of colourtones available allows customization to individual tastes without hiding the timber's natural grain, which can be especially appealing to those who value the aesthetic of their woodwork.

From a sustainability perspective, using CUTEK could mean less frequent need for replacing timber due to decay, contributing to less waste and resource consumption.

In essence, if you're looking for a high-performance, long-lasting wood protection solution that maintains and enhances the timber's appearance while making maintenance more straightforward, CUTEK might be considered a worthwhile investment.
