Pure Tung Oil is water and alkali resistant. It resists marring, penetrates well, is elastic and unlikely to check. Tung oil builds quickly, consolidates the wood surface and builds a transparent matte finish. Pure Tung Oil contains no thinners or driers and has a light nutty odor. Tung Oil is pressed from the nuts of Tung tree is known also as China wood oil and nut oil. The oil is still known in some circles as "China wood oil". Tung Oil is an ideal "binder" or "vehicle", carrying the resins and dryers deep into the pores of the wood so that sealer and finish coats practically become part of the wood - drying into an armor-like yet beautiful surface. The thin, transparent oil penetrates deep into wood pores, forming an almost permanent seal against moisture because it never loses its elasticity. Tung Oil is the world's oldest and best wood preservative. Tung Oil offers a protective barrier against water, stains, abrasions and wear. The look is natural, hand-rubbed, classic; perfect for fine furniture.

Teak oil will evaporate over time and to keep the same look must be applied seasonally depending on the placement of the piece. Outdoors the sun's UV will dry the oil faster and it must be applied more often. It is mainly used for protection during initial transportation of the product and allowed to evaporate. The teak wood then developes a gray patina as it weathers and ages outdoors.
