Osmo is a leading German company that has been producing wood finishes since 1964. Made with ecological responsibility and sustainability in mind, their high-quality finishes use natural and readily renewable vegetable oils and waxes.
With a thin viscosity formulated for dense woods, especially exotics, this deeply penetrating hard wax oil finish has a much lower wax content than Polyx.
A blend of vegetable oils (sunflower, soybean and thistle) and waxes (carnauba and candelilla) combined with a small amount of low-odor spirit (benzene-free), it has a low environmental impact. Forgiving to apply, it allows you to use a variety of methods (brush, roller, buffing pad or cloth), and a dust-free environment is not required. You don’t need to sand between coats, which also makes future repairs straightforward.
The finish is hard-wearing and has good resistance to water, alcohol and mild acids, making it suitable for a range of applications, from flooring and furniture to high-moisture environments such as kitchens or bathrooms. Non-toxic once cured, the finish is safe for food contact and complies with European standards for child safety (EN 71.3).
Can be used on its own (two coats recommended) or topped with Osmo Polyx for additional protection. Dries in 10 to 12 hours. A high-yield finish, it provides an impressive coverage of 190 sq. ft. per 750ml (25.5 fl oz) can.
