Q: Hello, we are in france and we understand you can sometimes ship this to france. Could you tell if this is possible and the price? We would probably want about 5 x 5 litre tins. many thanks

Q: We were recommended it by a neighbour, Trevor Simmonds, in South west France. It is to treat our exterior woodwork against weather etc. It has been treated already, but the original treatment is wearing off. Trevor said we could use this and then top up in the future, rather than scraping it off and starting again each time. Does this sound correct?
Could you tell me when we need to order by to meet your next delivery deadline and how long it would take to arrive?
A: The Impra Elan top coat can be used on surfaces that have previously been treated with Impra base coat / top coat.
Delivery to France should take around 3-4 days.
Q: what is the best presevative to use on a new green oak timber framed building ? can the product be applied at any time ie does the oak need to be dry first
A: There is a product called OSMO UV protection oil that is a clear exterior finish with great UV resistance , The Osmo UV Protection 420 Extra also contains a bio-cide wood preservative.2 coats would be required.The timber will need to be as dry as possible , prepared correctly and the product should not be applied in freezing conditions
.You could use the Impra Elan colorless , but this provides no UV resistance and the timber would go grey over time. Also if you use the Impra you will require 2 coats of basecoat [Impra Color] and then 2 coats of top coat [Impra color].If you wish to use the Impra may I suggest using a colour such as ‘Light Oak’ , the Impra products with pigment in them provide UV resistance , but the colorless does not.
However if you require a clear finish with UV resistance you should be thinking about purchasing the Osmo UV protection.
Here is a link to the Osmo product :
As well as clear , the UV protection oil is also available in a medium to dark Oak color , this is known as Osmo UV Protection Oil 425 Oak.
