Rust inhibitor & paint conditioner


  • MARINE OIL is a versatile, highly penetrating air drying oil that can be used alone or added to paint.
  • Used alone it provides a tough, flexible finish, driving out excess moisture and air and displacing it from rusted metal, so stopping rust.
  • Filling dry porous wood to stop paint peeling.
  • Added to any oil or alkyd based coatings and it will give increased wet edge time, improved flow ability, greater adhesion and unlike damaging thinners, will maintain the inherent quality of the paint without affecting its appearance or drying times.


  • To Condition Paint :
    1. Prepare surfaces as per instructions on paint can.
    2. Apply paint.
    3. If paint is sticky, sets-up or drags add MARINE OIL until the paint works smoothly, easily and evenly. Allow the brush, roller or spray to be your guide.
  • As a guide:
    • Topcoat: As required. Normally 5-20 % by volume.
    • Undercoat: Up to 30 % by volume.
    • Primer: Up to 50 % by volume.
    • For damaged, soft or punky wood use MARINE OIL to form a firm foundation for the paint. Apply MARINE OIL direct from can, 2-4 applications wet on wet, as fast as the wood will absorb it, wipe up any excess and allow to dry overnight (12 hrs). Apply paint as normal.
    • NOTE: MARINE OIL may be added to any coating (paint, varnish, stain) where the clean up is with mineral spirit.
  • To treat rusted surfaces:
    1. Ensure surface is dry and free from oil and grease.
    2. Remove any loose or flaky material. Do not remove firm rust.
    3. Apply marine Oil wet on wet, as fast as rust will absorb it until an even sheen is achieved.
    4. Leave to dry (24 hrs).
    5. Apply finishing coats. For lightly rusted surfaces use a mixture of 1 part MARINE OIL to 2 parts Metal Primer. Do not mix or overcoat MARINE OIL with paints containing «hot» solvents ie Xylene or 2 part coatings - for these type of paints use OWATROL C.I.P.
