Compoxell (previously known as Compo-Care) is a water-based coating for reviving all types of exterior composite wood. It enhances and revives the colour of the wood whilst also protecting it from stains and waterproofing the surface. It’s easy to apply with a brush or roller and only needs a single coat! It is a transparent tinted coating which is currently available in brown and grey and it gives a matt / matt sheen finish.

For our composite wood cleaner and degreaser, take a look at Owatrol Compo-Clean.

Compoxell does not contain solvents or paraffin.

Ideal Uses for Compoxell

  • Coating decking and pathways round static caravans and holiday homes
  • Reviving ALL types of exterior composite wood
  • Working on horizontal or vertical surfaces
  • Finishing composite railing and fencing
  • Protecting composite benches and landscaping

Always read the Compoxell Technical Data Sheet before using and follow the instructions carefully.

Surface Preparation

Initially, surfaces must be clean, dry and free of dirt, grease, oil, mildew and stains. Treat any existing mildew with a 50/50 bleach/water solution. Scrub the solution on to the surface and allow it to stand for 10-15 minutes before rinsing thoroughly.

We would recommend using Owatrol’s Compo-Clean to clean your composite wood. After cleaning allow the wood to thoroughly dry before applying the finish.

Application of Compoxell composite wood coating

Do not dilute.

Stir the product thoroughly before and periodically during application. Simply apply a single, even coat of Compoxell to the entire length or piece of wood, stopping at any natural breaks to avoid lapping.

Clean Up

Clean all tools used with soap and water.


This will depend on exposure to the sun, weather and foot traffic. Maintenance is due when treated areas turn clear. Compoxell requires no sanding or stripping prior to the application of a maintenance coat. First clean surface with Compo-Clean, then apply a single application of Compoxell to the entire surface according to the application instructions above.

Things to Remember

  • Do not apply in direct sunlight or to hot surfaces.
  • Do not apply if cold and/or wet weather is expected within 24 hours.
  • Apply between 10°C and 30°C.
  • Cover and protect everything you do not wish to coat.
  • For colour uniformity, mix all the product that is to be applied to any one area or section together before use.
  • Always work the entire length of a deck board or cladding board to a logical break.
  • Vertical cladding should be coated from top to bottom.
  • Never stop application in the middle of the board.
