I’m planning install a small area of decking made from reclaimed tropical hardwood taken from an old fishing boat. I would like to use a natural finish, but don’t know if any natural finishes provide UV protection. I would like the timber to retain its current dark brown hue rather than fade to silver over time.
I live in Beijing and tung oil is readily available, but I have no idea if it provides any UV resistance.
All help and suggestions will be gratefully received!
