Osmo Polyx®-Oil is a general purpose Hardwax-Oil wood finish that is derived from natural vegetable oils and waxes. Resistant to water, dirt, beer, wine, cola and saliva, Osmo Polyx-Oil is microporous and molecularly bonds with the wood, meaning it does not crack, flake, peel or blister. Our new advanced formula of Polyx-Oil has been specially engineered in Germany to be the first Hardwax-Oil available on the North American market that can be easily applied with a brush or roller, with no buffing necessary! Can be spot-repaired and/or restored/renewed with no sanding required, therefore wood never needs complete sanding and refinishing again.
Wood surface must be clean, dry and frost-free (moisture content max. 20%).
Osmo UV-Protection-Oil Exra is ready to use. Do not thin. Stir well before use.
If possible, please apply the first coat to all sides before installation.
Fresh wood, containing natural wood extractives and especially hard wood needs to weather off (for approximately 6 weeks) after installation. Thereby the wood becomes absorbent and the wood finish adheres optimally.
A coloured base coat is recommended, e.g. Osmo One Coat Only, Natural Oil Woodstain or Country Colour.
For renovations, clean old microporous wood finishes thoroughly. Degrey any already greyed wood with Osmo Wood Reviver Power-Gel before applying Osmo Clean old microporous stains thoroughly.
Old paints and lacquers must be completely removed.
As a general rule, wear a dust mask during sanding works. Do not sand smooth surfaces finer than P120.
The finished surface is influenced by several factors, including the condition of the wood. Therefore, a trial application is always required, especially for unfamiliar surfaces.
If additional protection against blue stain, rot and insects is desired, pre-treat the wood if possible on all sides with Osmo WR Base Coat.
METHOD OF APPLICATION
With Osmo Flat Brush or Microfibre Roller, apply thinly along the wood grain and spread well.
Allow to dry for approx. 12 hours under good ventilation. Then apply the second coat.
When recoating colour treated surfaces, or for renovation works, one coat applied to the clean and dry surface is usually sufficient.
