高级保护户外家具图片

和大多数人一样,我的家人喜欢花时间在户外,不分季节。而且是人谁爱木材和天然木纹的性格,我比较喜欢实木户外家具在塑料椅子和铝草坪家具。

But I have learned that the combination of the ultra-violet rays of the sun, unexpected summer thunderstorms, snow and sleet — not to mention lemonade, tree sap and bird droppings — can take its toll on unprotected wood.

所有森林都有少量的天然油脂范围h, to a certain extent, do provide a low level of protection. But these natural oils evaporate quickly under the heat of the summer sun, leaving our wood furniture vulnerable to the elements. Wood that was once bright and beautiful is now reduced to wood that is gray, cracked, dirty, warped, stained and unsightly.

甚至更昂贵的木材,如柚木,雪松,红木和红木,可以堕入太阳的漂白作用,并且出现一次他们的天然油脂已经消失的污渍。但是,如果你等到太阳他们干出来的,很多损失将已经被完成。申请结束的保护层的时间是在你的家具看起来像它需要它,而不是之后。

对于这些类型的木材理想的终点,不管你是否使用它们在室内还是室外,是Minwax®Helmsman® Teak Oil. Unlike thicker finishes that dry on the surface, Helmsman® Teak Oil is designed to penetrate deep into the pores of the wood, where it mixes with the wood's natural oils, then hardens inside the wood.

For best results using Minwax® Helmsman® Teak Oil, I have found it always helps to start with a light sanding of the wood. This opens up the pores, removes scratches and reveals the true color of the wood. After lightly shaking the container for about twenty seconds, I use either a brush or a rag to spread a liberal amount of Teak Oil over the wood, making sure I apply it to the underside of boards as well. After about five to ten minutes, I apply a second coat the same way and let it soak in for about fifteen minutes more before wiping off any excess.

这里有一个技巧:我不喜欢的工作在阳光直射下,随着太阳的温暖会导致油开始变硬它有时间深入渗透到木材之前。如果你能在树荫下不工作,紧盯上第二遍,因为它可能会开始硬化比预期更快。如果是这样,擦去多余的关闭,只要你注意到它的发生。

尽管木材可能会觉得你消灭了那第二次施用后干燥几分钟,最好给它六到八个小时前完全硬化无论是把它背出来太阳或使用它。

请记住,约Helmsman®柚木油性伟大的事情之一是,你的木材似乎被晒出任何时候,你可以简单地抓住罐头和应用了另一个保护外衣。
