Cabot Bleaching Oil #3241 is uniquely formulated to accelerate the natural
weathering process of uncoated exterior wood. It contains a small amount
of gray pigment and a chemical ingredient that actually bleaches the
wood’s surface. When first applied, this product gives a delicate
gray tone, and during the first few months’ exposure it gradually
turns into a beautiful, natural driftwood gray color. This weathered
effect, if derived by nature, would require many years of harsh exposure,
which often turns wood dark and uneven in appearance. Cabot Bleaching
Oil produces a selfprotecting finish and achieves a uniform weathered
look in only 6 to 12 months. Cabot Bleaching Oil is for use on new exterior
wood that has not been previously treated. It can also be applied to
wood previously treated with Cabot Bleaching Oil. It is an ideal finish
for siding, shingles, shakes, fences, and railings and can be used on
almost any type of uncoated lumber, such as cedar, fir, pine, spruce,
cypress and redwood.
