Wood surface must be clean, dry and frost-free (moisture content max. 18%). Osmo TopOil is ready to use, please do not thin. Stir well before use. Clean old microporous stains thoroughly. Old paints and lacquers must be completely removed. As a general rule, wear a dust mask during sanding works. Fill small cracks, larger joints or holes in wood. Sand wood surfaces carefully. Begin with coarse sandpaper – final sanding work for furniture P220-240. Before oiling the surface, remove sanding dust with a broom or vacuum. The finished surface is, among other things, influenced by the wood‘s natural characteristics. Therefore, a trial application is always required, especially for unfamiliar surfaces.
Methods of application:
Apply thinly along the wood grain with a lint-free cloth. Remove all excess product from surface. Allow to dry for approx. 8-10 hours with good ventilation. Repeat as above 2-3 times. When renovating, one coat applied to the clean and dry surface with a lint-free cloth is usually sufficient.
Cleaning of tools:
Oil finish thinner
Approx. 8-10 hours (normal climatic conditions, 23 °C/50 % rel. humidity). Lower temperatures and/or higher air humidity can increase the drying time. Allow for good ventilation while drying. Complete curing and water resistance after 7 days.
TopOil 3058 Clear enhances the tone of wood (permanent wet effect). TopOil 3068 Natural counteracts exactly this effect and protects wood nearly invisibly. The natural colour tone of wood is preserved. On dark/reddish wood species, TopOil 3068 Natural is visible as slightly white chalky surface. TopOil 3061 Acacia is lightly pigmented, which gives the wood an elegant look.
Applying the product too generously and insufficient ventilation lead to delays in drying time.
For cabinet interiors and drawers, apply max. one coat thinly with a cloth.
Allow for good ventilation while drying.
If a higher gloss level is desired, after thoroughly drying apply Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner thinly and polish when dry.
Wood surfaces treated with TopOil are easy to maintain. Remove coarse dirt with a broom or a vacuum cleaner. To clean, add Osmo Wash and Care concentrate to mop water and clean the surface with a damp (not wet!) cloth. Use Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner to remove tough stains, which cleans and regenerates the surface at the same time.
Dispose of leftover product and completely emptied packaging according to local official guidelines. Only completely emptied cans can be recycled.
