How to apply Hybrid Wood Protector to doorsUpdated 6 months ago

Consult the TDS prior to using Hybrid Wood Protector. 

Materials needed


Application process


  1. If the wood surface has been treated with a finish other than Hybrid Wood Protector, the previous finish must be removed before applying Hybrid Wood Protector. Ensure that any previous finish is completely removed by starting with a low grit and work up in consecutive grits (e.g., 40, 60, 80, 100, 120 max).
  2. Clean using Exterior Wood Cleaner.


  1. Stir the Hybrid Wood Protector thoroughly until a consistent mixture is obtained. Carefully add 10% Accelerator (Part B) to the oil. Pot life is 4-6 hours. Only mix what you can use up within that time frame. 
  2. Apply a layer of Hybrid Wood Protector with a firm bristle paint brush. 
  3. Leave the oil to react for 10 minutes. Then smooth the surface again with the same brush (without applying additional product). 
  4. After 5 minutes, gently wipe off the surface with a lint-free cloth to remove traces of excess oil until it appears even. 
  5. Let dry for about 24 hours. Complete curing takes place after 7 days. 

Clean up

Rags saturated in oil are combustible and require proper disposal. Here are some oily rags safety tips from the NFPA.


  • Do a visual check-up after one year, right after the first winter season. As needed, touch up the Hybrid Wood Protector in the original color where color has faded.
  • After 2-3 years, depending on the wood type, color, and location, you will need to re-oil the whole surface but you'll never have to sand again.
