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.
An excellent choice for interior woodwork, this easy-to-apply finish is both a stain and a finish in one formulation. Applied in a single coat, it appears translucent; additional coats increase opacity and color saturation. On its own, it produces a sheen between matte and satin and can be top-coated with Polyx for increased sheen and durability.
A blend of vegetable oils (sunflower and soybean), waxes (carnauba and candelilla) and organically-derived pigments, 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 makes future repairs straightforward.
Osmo wood wax is hard-wearing and has moderate resistance to water, alcohol, and mild acids, making it suitable for a range of applications from flooring and doors to furniture. Non-toxic once cured, the finish is safe for food contact and complies with European standards for child safety (EN 71.3).
Two coats recommended. Dries in 10 to 12 hours. A high-yield finish, it provides an impressive coverage of 190 square feet per 750ml (25.5 fl oz) can.
