Cutek Extreme is sold clear, which allows the wood to age gracefully into a beautiful silver patina on exposure to sunlight. However, if you’d like to retain the natural freshly oiled colour of the wood you’re working with, you can simply add a Colourtone to the clear oil. Choose one of our Colourtones which have been specifically developed to closely match many popular wood species. For best results, select a Colourtone that stays close to the natural shade of the wood species being coated.
MIXING: Mix 1 to 2 tins of Colourtone per gallon of Cutek Extreme. Stir well after adding and during use as tint will settle. Depth of colour may be increased by adding up to 1 more tin of Colourtone per gallon.
When selecting from the range of Colourtones allow for the wood colour to naturally lighten during the first three to eight months after application, as natural weathering and leaching occurs. Colour will last longer on rusticated, or band sawn lumber, and may be maximized by including the Colourtone in all subsequent applications of Cutek Extreme. If Colourtoned Cutek has faded over time, wash wood with Cutek ProClean and apply a single coat of Colourtoned Cutek Extreme to restore the original look of the protected lumber.
