Osmo hardwax oils offer a top quality treatment for wooden flooring, other internal and external woodwork. These are natural wood finishes with all the goodness of nature, made from natural oils and waxes, canauba wax, sunflower oil, candilla wax, thistle oil and more.
Osmo hardwax oils provide natural character, durability and protection for all interior and exterior timber. Wooden floors are often exposed to great stresses and strains, therefore they require extra protection and Osmo hardwax oils offer a very durable finish. This protection should not disturb or change the natural appearance of the wood‘s surface.
The range of Osmo hardwax oils provide this protection from within the wood itself, bringing the natural grain and character of the wood to life whilst offering maximum protection and allowing it to “breathe”. This helps to maintain its elastic surface qualities and allows it to compliment its environment. With Osmo natural wood finishes the wood surface retains its natural character and charm but also becomes abrasion, water and dirt resistant – a long lasting surface protection against those small daily mishaps.
Wood Wax Finish Transparent High Solid
Wood Wax Finish
Product Description: Osmo Wood Wax Finish is a semi-transparent or transparent interior wood finish. In one simple application it produces a rich professional satin finish which can be polished for higher sheen. Grain and texture of the wood are accentuated. Osmo Wood Wax Finish is natural oil/wax based and micro-porous, (allowing the wood to breathe). It will not crack, flake, peel or blister. It is water-repellent and dirt-resistant, and will not suffer from water marks. Dirt can easily be removed. It has been used for decades in rooms with high moisture content like kitchens and bathrooms.
Osmo Wood Wax Finish has a creamy consistence (thixotropic) and very easy to apply. It requires little or no maintenance.
The dried surface is resistant against wine, beer, cola drinks, coffee, tea, fruit juices, milk and water according to DIN 68 861-1C (German Industrial Norm).
Osmo Wood Wax Finish Clear Extra Thin is clear and satin-matt. It is more liquid and can also be applied by dipping or spraying in professional application plants. It penetrates deeply into the wood and is particularly well suited for the treatment of dark hardwoods like Jatoba, Meranti, Wengé, Merbau, Ebony etc. (f. i. on floors).
Recommended Use: All interior wood surfaces: panelling, ceilings, cornices, beams, furniture, doors, table tops, toys.
Also usable for all kinds of wooden floors (please see Osmo Color Hardwax-Oil). Especially recommended for rooms with high moisture content (kitchens, bathrooms, etc.).
Can also be used for touching-up painted or varnished surfaces. Applicable on all wood species, also laminated wood, hardboard, OSB (oriented strand board) and cork (all without primer).
Colour Tone: Osmo Wood Wax Finish is available in a range of natural wood shades to match the most commonly used wood species, and two clears (normal and extra thin). Osmo Wood Wax Finish is semi-transparent. The final appearance of the finish will therefore be influenced by the natural colour of the wood. Best results are normally achieved with corresponding or slightly darker shades or clear. Light shades should only be used for light new wood. (Trial application recommended). All shades are intermixable. When using several cans with different batch numbers please mix together in one large container to ensure uniform coloration.

Storage: Shelf life is 5 years or more if can is tightly closed. Store in a dry place. If thickened by frost it will regain a normal consistency under normal temperatures within 24-36 hours.
Preparation: Wood surface must be clean, dry (maximum moisture content 20 %) and frost-free.
Furniture finish: surface recommended to be sanded down to desired degree of smoothness - carefully remove all dust. Previously stained wood (micro-porous stains): surface must be cleaned or slightly sanded.
Old paints and varnishes must be removed (by Osmo Paint Remover or by sanding).
If in good state and only requiring a little touching up: clean with cloth or sand lightly.
Wood tending to attract blue stain (f. i. pine in rooms with high humidity) pre-treat with one coat of Osmo Wood Protector (biocidefree) up to one week before applying a final coat of Wood Wax Finish.
Application: By brushing, brushing machine or with cloth. Clear Extra Thin: brushing, dipping and spraying in professional application plants.
Osmo Wood Wax Finish is ready to use. Do not thin. Stir well. Apply a thin coat evenly and thoroughly with stiff quality brush or cloth along wood grain on clean, dry surface.
If a deeper shade is desired, a second thin coat can be applied, allowing 12 hours drying time between coats.
To obtain a higher sheen the dry surface can be polished with a dry, clean cotton cloth or Osmo polishing pad (ultra fine steel wool grade 000) or scotch pad.
Where possible apply on all sides of the wood before installation
Floors: For the clear treatment of wooden flooring (also cork or OSB) we recommend our Osmo Hardwax-Oil which has been especially developed for this purpose. It makes flooring very resistant against abrasion and dirt as well as water-repellent.
Because of the hard wear these surfaces are exposed to, two coats are recommended (compare product information No. 2).
For oak and other hardwood floors a clear treatment is recommended. For dark hardwoods (Jatoba, Wengé, Meranti, Ebony, Merbau, etc.) use OS COLOR WOOD WAX FINISH Clear Extra Thin.
Cleaning of Tools: Clean working utensils with Osmo Brush Cleaner (benzene-free).
Drying Time: approx. 12 hours (provide good ventilation);
Dust dry after approx. 6 hours.
