How to re-oil window frames with Hybrid Wood ProtectorUpdated 6 months ago

Consult the TDS prior to using Hybrid Wood Protector. 

Materials needed


Application process


  1. Clean the wood surface thoroughly with Exterior Wood Cleaner. For lightly weathered surfaces, dilute 1-part cleaner with 2-parts clean water. For medium to heavily weathered surfaces, dilute 1-part cleaner to 1-part clean water. 


  1. Stir the Hybrid Wood Protector thoroughly until a consistent mixture is obtained. 
  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.
