In common with other Osmo tinted wood wax we carry, this easy-to-apply intensive finish is both a stain and a finish in one formulation. It appears translucent when applied in a single coat; however, a second coat increases opacity and color saturation significantly, such that it is virtually opaque, with only minimal wood grain visible. 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.
An excellent choice for interior woodwork, 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).
Dries in about 24 hours at 23°C (73°F) and 50% relative humidity. Lower temperature and/or higher humidity affects drying time. A high-yield finish, it provides an impressive coverage of 95 sq.ft. per 375ml (12.5 fl oz) can.
