OSMO Polyx Oil
Professional, clear, gloss (3011), matte (3031), satin (3043) or raw (3051) wood finish with a special surface hardness that uniquely combines the advantages of natural oils and waxes in one product. Osmo Polyx®-Oil High Solid is resistant to dirt, water and abrasion and smoothens the surface. Will not crack, flake, peel or bubble. In comparison to conventional finishes, the use of plant ingredients creates a more evenly coloured and more harmonious appearance. Simple application – without primer or intermediate sanding – this saves time and money. Suitable for wood; a microporous surface allows the wood to breathe and reduces swelling and shrinkage. Resistant to wine, beer, cola, coffee, tea, fruit juice, milk and water according to DIN 68861-1A – no water spots. When dry, the finish is safe for humans, animals and plants and is suitable for children’s toys as per EN 71.3 (European norm) and is resistant to saliva and perspiration according to DIN 53160 (German industrial norm).
RECOMMENDED USE Osmo Polyx®-Oil High Solid is ideal for protecting all wooden floors, such as solid wood and plank wood flooring, block strip, OSB and cork floors, wood trim and sheet products, as well as for furniture.
SURFACE PREPARATION Wood surface must be clean, dry and frost-free (moisture content max. 18%). Osmo Polyx®-Oil High Solid is ready to use, please do not thin. Stir well before use. Clean or slightly sand old microporous stains thoroughly. Old paints and lacquers must be completely removed. If required (rough surfaces) sand before application. As a general rule, wear a dust mask during sanding works. Fill small cracks, larger joints or holes in wood (with Osmo Wood Filler). Sand wood surfaces carefully. Begin with coarse sandpaper. We recommend a final sanding with 120 - 150 grit sandpaper for flooring and 180 - 240 grit for furniture. Before oiling the surface, remove sanding dust with a broom or vacuum. The finished surface is influenced by several factors, including the wood‘s natural characteristics. Therefore, a trial application is always required, especially for unfamiliar surfaces.
METHODS OF APPLICATION Osmo Polyx®-Oil High Solid is ready to use, please do not thin. Stir carefully before use. First coat: Apply thinly and evenly with 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
Second coat: Apply thinly as above. Remove surplus immediately. Alternatively, apply a 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, the surface can be buffed or polished with a hand polisher or buffing machine. When renovating or recoating an already oiled surface, one coat applied to the clean and dry surface is usually sufficient. Note: The finish can alternatively be polished into the floor using a single disc machine and non-abrasive pad.
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. Allow for good ventilation while drying.
COVERAGE 1 litre will cover approx. 260 ft2 (24 m²) with one coat. Coverage depends significantly on the condition of the wood. All information refers to smooth and planed/sanded surfaces. Other surfaces may lead to differences in coverage.
CLEANING OF TOOLS Clean working utensils with Osmo Brush Cleaner and Thinner (benzene-free).
