Quebec, Ontario · More info

Osmo Polyx®-Oil is a very durable Hardwax-Oil wood coating derived from natural vegetable oils and waxes that is resistant to water, dirt, beer, wine, cola and saliva.

A unique combination of natural oils and waxes can be spot-repaired and/or restored/renewed with no sanding required, therefore wood never needs complete refinishing again.

Osmo Polyx®-Oil is microporous and does not crack, flake, peel or blister. In comparison to conventional finishes, the natural vegetable oils and waxes allow for an easy-to-apply, hard-wearing finish that can be applied by professionals and homeowners alike.

With the purchase of one or more Osmo samples, we will send you a free mini application kit, which includes a pair of nitrile gloves, a 120 grit sandpaper and applicator pads to prepare your sample. One kit per order. (Flat shipping rate of $3.95 per order, shipped with Canada Post Lettermail).

Directions for use

Preparation:

Wood surface must be clean and dry (moisture content max. 18%). Clean or slightly sand old micro-porous finishes, remove old varnishes. If required (rough surfaces) sand before application.
We recommend a final sanding with 120 - 150 grit sandpaper. Remove all dust carefully.

If required floors can be coloured using Osmo Wood Wax Finish.

Methods of Application:

Osmo Polyx®-Oil is ready to use, please do not thin. Stir carefully before use.

1st coat: Apply a thin and even coat following the grain of the wood grain using an Osmo Hand Brush, an Osmo Floor Brush or Osmo Floor Roller.

Leave to dry for at least 8 - 10 hours. Ensure good ventilation and room temperatures above 18° C.

2nd coat: Apply thinly as above. Remove surplus immediately. Alternatively apply second coat by scraper and buff the surface with a white pad. Leave to dry at least 8 - 10 hours, ventilate well.
When thoroughly dry, surface can be buffed or polished with hand polisher or buffing machine.

Note: Cork floors will absorb more oil – remove any surplus immediately and leave to dry for at least 24 hours providing good ventilation after every coat.

Certain tropical hardwoods are so dense or laden with oils and resins that they may not be compatible with Osmo Polyx®-Oil. Test the finish on a few boards or call for advice.

The Osmo Polyx®-Oil can take considerably longer to dry in cases where the air is humid, the temperature is low or the product is over applied.

Drying Time:

Approx. 8-10 hours (normal climatic conditions, 23 °C /50 % rel. humidity). Lower temperatures and/or higher air humidity can increase the drying time.

Coverage:

2.5 Liter will cover approx. 75 m2 (800 ft 2) with one coat. Coverage will vary depending on the type, age and texture of the wood.

Cleaning of tools:

Clean work tools with Osmo Brush Cleaner (benzene-free) or oil thinner

Note:

Oils accentuate the natural colour tone of wood (permanent wet effect). Applying the product too rich or offering deficient ventilation leads to drying delays and a typical smell of the oil.

Caution: For the interior of cabinets and drawers - 1 thin coat using a lint free cloth is the recommendation.

A trial coat is recommended.

Due to the extreme absorption of cork surfaces, make sure to apply an especially thin coating. Cork surfaces also require a longer drying period (minimum of 24 hours).

Wooden surfaces that are treated with Osmo Polyx®-Oil Original are easy to maintain. Dirt and dust can be easily pick up with a broom or vacuum cleaner.

For daily maintenance please mix the Osmo Wash and Care with water and clean the area with a moist (not wet!) mop.

For a deep cleaning of entire surface or to remove stubborn stains Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner is recommended.

To obtain a High Satin sheen, once the entire surface has thoroughly dried, apply a thin coat of Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner using a lint free cloth.

Great finish

Ryan Landon · Apr 25, 2019

I used the sample packet on some of my newest priducts and a little goes a long way. They turned out great, I'll definitely be grabbing some more in the near future.

Used as a table top finish

Martin Vendryes · Mar 5, 2019

Competitive with Rubio Monocoat (which I sometimes also use), this has the advantage of not needing a catalyst; i.e., one can and no mixing for application. Long shelf life (2 years after opening). Protects well.
