The Philosophy of OLI-NATURA

OLI-NATURA offers the professional user biologically unobjectionable products on the basis of natural and nature-orientated raw materials with the highest possible cost-effectiveness. The drying and handling characteristics of oils are greatly determined by the proportion of unsaturated fatty acids which react with the oxygen in the air (they oxidize) and cause the oil to harden.

Olive oil, for instance, never hardens. Sunflower oils or soy oils, which are often found in other eco-friendly products, have a low proportion of unsaturated fatty acids and thus dry very slowly. Under warm conditions they soften again and tend to produce a sticky, easily soiled surface.

OLI-NATURA products have a high proportion of drying linseed oils, wood oils and modified natural resins. These components dry quickly and cannot be melted after having hardened. Therefore, the surface is much more protected and easier to clean.

OLI-NATURA products are free of solvent additives, such as orange or lemon peel oil. These substances evaporate over time and can lead to allergic reactions in higher concentrations.

When necessary we use high-purity low-odour Isopar. Isopar is used for medical purposes and fulfils the standards of the German Book of pharmaceuticals. Solvents are used to increase the oils ability to penetrate wood and to reduce the effort needed for buffing. Project oil and yacht & teak oil are two examples where Isopar solvent is used.

Without biosides and preservatives

OLI deliberately avoids the addition of biocides and preservatives. OLI-NATURA oils and waxes form a natural membrane that protects the wood from moisture without limiting its diffusion ability notably. Due to the woods ability to breathe and at the same time prevent the penetration of water, the danger of fungal decay and decomposition is being reduced significantly in a natural way. However, OLI-NATURA products are not suitable for application in areas in which no sufficient ventilation can be guaranteed

and retaining moisture is very probable.

UV protection

All OLI-NATURA oils which are recommended for the use outdoors, have a highly effective UV blocker as an extra, which reduces the damaging and destructive effect of the intensive UV rays significantly. The natural ageing of the wood is being delayed and the oil keeps its protective effect.

Oli-Natura Product Range
