Osmo Interior Wood Wax Transparent Finish

Please note: Osmo Wood Wax Finish cannot be shipped to the greater Los Angeles, CA area due to restrictions.

ALL AROUND INTERIOR PROTECTION

Osmo Wood Wax Finish combines all the advantages of oils and waxes in one unique product. Resistant to water and dirt and very durable, the waxes smooth the wood surface while the oils penetrate to protect from within. It is possible to create an almost infinite variation of naturally occurring color shades to enhance the grain showing a gorgeous, natural color tone.

Preparation

 

  • Wood surfaces to be treated with wax finish must be clean, dry and free from surface dirt and debris.
  • Surface coatings such as paint, varnish and other surface sealers must be fully removed by sanding or with a suitable paint and varnish remover
  • Sand carefully before application starting with a coarse paper – final sanding for flooring should be with a P80 to P120 grit sandpaper and P120 to P150 for furniture
  • Thoroughly remove all traces of sanding dust with a vacuum cleaner before application

 

Application

 

WOOD WAX FINISH BY HAND WITH A CLOTH/RAG

Transparent (1-coat): Apply a thin coat with a lint-free cloth.

 

  1. Work product thinly and evenly onto wood using cloth
  2. For a more solid colour, ensure product is applied evenly, then proceed to step 5
  3. For a subtle effect: allow roughly 15-minutes for oils to penetrate and then proceed to step 4
  4. Working with the grain, remove all excess product from surface with a clean lint-free cloth
  5. Allow 8-10 hours drying time. Allow for good ventilation whilst drying.
  6. For flooring, a top coat of Polyx®-Oil 3054 is required for added durability against wear and stains

 

Intensive (2-coats): Apply two thin coats with a lint-free cloth.

 

  1. Once first coat has dried (8-10 hours) apply a second thin coat for a solid colour
  2. Allow 8-10 hours drying time. Allow for good ventilation whilst drying.
  3. Two coats is not recommended for high-wear surfaces like flooring

 

BY HAND WITH A FLOOR BRUSH

Apply two thin coats with an Osmo Floor Brush or Osmo Natural Bristle Brush for smaller areas.

 

  1. Apply with the brush thinly along the wood grain on the clean and dry wood surface
  2. For a subtle glazing effect, apply thinly with a cloth, and within 20 minutes wipe away excess
  3. Allow 8-10 hours drying time before recoating. Allow for good ventilation whilst drying.
  4. Apply second coat following the previous steps
  5. Clean brush with Osmo Brush Cleaner and Thinner (benzene-free) or Turpentine

 

WARNING: Cloths saturated with product are a spontaneous combustion hazard and should be left out unfolded until dried, prior to disposal or preferably stored in a proper fireproof container

 

BY HAND WITH A FLOOR ROLLER

Apply two thin coats with an Osmo Microfibre Floor Roller.

 

  1. Stir the Wood Wax Finish well and pour into tray
  2. Take the Microfibre Roller and roll well on the grid of the tray
  3. Roll very thinly and evenly onto the wood following the grain
  4. Allow 8-10 hours drying time before recoating. Allow for good ventilation whilst drying.
  5. For flooring, a top coat of Polyx®-Oil 3054 is required for added durability against wear and stains
  6. Clean roller with Osmo Brush Cleaner and Thinner (benzene-free) or Turpentine

 

Tip: The microfiber roller should only be saturated lightly. A lightly saturated roller will allow the user to cover approximately 43-53 ft2 (4-5m2) of flooring. Please be aware that Osmo Wood Wax Finish has a high yield (see product label). Product excesses and roller tracks must be roller or smoothed out immediately.

 

MECHANICALLY WITH A FLOOR BUFFER

Apply one thin coat with an Osmo FloorxCenter or floor-buffing machine.

 

  1. Stir the Wood Wax Finish well prior to use.
  2. Trowel the product thinly onto the floor using an Osmo Double Sided Scraper or similar.
  3. Disperse and polish the floor using a floor buffer and white pads.
  4. There is too much material on the surface when you can see rings. Turn the pad over.
  5. Allow 8-10 hours drying time. Allow for good ventilation whilst drying
  6. In order to protect the pigments, 1-coat of clear Osmo Polyx®-Oil is necessary as a top coat

 

Tinting: Osmo Wood Wax Finish can also be used to lightly tint Polyx®-Oil 3054 up to a ratio of 10:1. Do not exceed a ratio of 10 parts Polyx®-Oil 3054 to 1 part Wood Wax Finish.

 

 

Aftercare

 

Regular Cleaning

Surfaces treated with Osmo Wood Wax Finish Transparent should be dry wiped from time to time with a soft lint free cloth. To remove day to day, dust, dirt, scuffs and light marks use Osmo Spray Cleaner.

 

Deep Cleaning

For more stubborn marks, light scratches or if the surface is starting to look tired or worn, an application of Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner may be required.
