CUTEK The best solution for wood protection
Cutek CD50 is a unique wood protection oil which keeps wood looking great for many years.
It comes as a clear oil (natural) and can be tinted to 17 colourtones which once added enhance the natural look of your timber.
By penetrating the timber so effectivly the Cutek CD50 is able to minimise warping, cupping and splitting, which means your exterior timber lasts years longer.
With a colourtone, the added UV protection keeps the natural colour for much longer.

Traditional film-forming coatings vs CUTEK™
Water is timber’s greatest enemy.
Most paints and stains attempt to control water and water vapour by forming a surface film.
In only a short time,
- UV and wear causes film breakdown which allows water and water vapour into the wood
- moisture moving in and out causes shrinkage and swelling, splitting, loss of dimensional stability, greater susceptibility to environmental degradation.
- does not form a film but diffuses through the timber controlling moisture from the inside
- significantly slows down the rate of moisture exchange between wood and the environment
- stabilises timber by controlling moisture for many years, minimising movement
- is not a film so does not need to be removed before recoating, greatly simplifying maintenance.
