Preparation: Surfaces must be clean and dry, removing all traces of dust and dirt before application (maximum moisture content 20%). Only apply on frost free surfaces. For guaranteed performance, Osmo recommend that all traces of previous finishes are removed to expose clean, bare wood.
Existing oiled surfaces can be lightly rubbed back with meths then fully cleaned Pre-existing paints, varnishes, waxes and sealers must be completely removed by sanding or with a suitable varnish or paint stripper / remover Use Osmo Interior Wood Filler, Osmo Interior Gap Sealer or Osmo Repair Kit to repair small dents and holes To protect against blue stain in moist surroundings, pre-treat with biocide-free wax impregnation Osmo Wood Protector
Application We always recommend applying a test area to ascertain drying times and effect. Osmo Polyx-Oil is ready-to-use from the tin, do not thin. Stir thoroughly prior to application. Osmo oils dry via oxidation so it is important to ensure good ventilation during application and drying.
Application to Wood Floors The ideal application tool is a firm, fine, natural bristled brush. For the best results, apply thinly and remove any excess oil from the surface of the wood with a clean, lint-free cloth.
1. Apply first coat thinly and evenly along the wood grain with an Osmo Floor Brush - use in conjunction with the Osmo Telescopic Handle for ease of application 2. Remove any surplus oil and leave to dry (8-10 hours) 3. Lightly de-nib the surface 4. Remove all traces of de-nibbing / sanding dust with a vacuum cleaner 5. Apply a second thin coat and allow to fully dry
Application to Cork floors Cork tiles are best treated before fitting to avoid overlapping treatment of edges which would lead to prolonged drying times. A cork floor treated with Osmo Polyx-Oil will get a robust, elastic and wear-resistant surface which will harden further over 2-3 weeks. Due to the extreme absorption power of this highly elastic, natural, material we recommend the following procedure:
1. Apply first coat very thinly with an Osmo Professional Scraper or Osmo Double Blade Scraper, and for smaller areas use an Osmo Soft Tip Brush 2. Polyx-Oil should immediately absorb into the surface 3. Leave to dry for at least 24 hours 4. Apply second coat, again very thinly 5. Remove excess with cloth immediately 6. Leave to dry for at least 24 hours
Regular Cleaning For daily maintenance, cleaning with a dry duster, floor mop or vacuum cleaner will be sufficient. For commercial premises, an electric floor polisher can be used.
Please Note: Oiled or waxed surfaces should not be cleaned with a steam cleaner or steam mop as these will degrade or potentially strip the oiled finish.
Renovation Renovating, even partially, is quick and easy. Just clean and re-treat worn areas with a thin coat of Osmo Polyx Oil for an invisible repair. For deeper stains and scratches, a light sanding of the affected area may be required. Once the stain or scratch has been removed, clean the area thouroughly to remove all traces of sanding dust then re-oil the affected area for a seemless repair.
Do not use or store in extremes of temperature and protect from frost.
