Dark Red Meranti Recommendation

The substances contained can drip on fresh-cut surfaces and therefore cause discoloration on the masonry. Therefore we recommend that all cutting edges be provided with OSMO Cutting Edge Wax. For Dark Red Meranti, it is essential to use non-corrosive fasteners for external structures. After almost six months of exposure to the weather, natural light graying is normal and does not affect quality or durability.

Dark Red Meranti Finishing:

If a colorless wood treatment is required for outdoor use, use OSMO UV Colorless Extra Protective Oil. If you want to protect the wood with pigments and at the same time preserve its naturalness as much as possible, use OSMO pigmented coating Bangkirai Terrace Oil light.
Suppose you want to preserve wood sanding structure, but you want a color rendering with a higher degree of pigmentation. In that case, we recommend the OSMO granular oil glaze with eighteen color differences.
