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.


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.

Easy application with a cloth, brush, or white pad – no need for a primer or sanding between coats, which saves time and money. Resistant against liquid spillages and also easy to refresh or spot-repair. When dried the surface is non-toxic and safe for humans, plants, and animals.


  • Suitable for all interior use
  • One coat produces a transparent color, or two coats produce an opaque color
  • Based on Sunflower oil, Soybean oil, Thistle oil, Carnauba, and Candelilla wax
  • Very durable and hard-wearing – water and dirt resistant
  • Resistant to common liquid spillages such as water, juice, tea, cola, and wine
  • Saliva-resistant and sweat-proof, suitable for children’s toys
  • Micro-porous, breathable finish which does not crack, peel, or flake
  • No sanding necessary for spot repairs or future applications
  • Made in Germany – Conforms to strict German and European norms

Application Tips

  • For resinous wood species, use Osmo Wood Wax Finish Clear Extra Thin.
  • Two coats can be applied on wooden furniture, doors, and joinery, but only one coat on flooring - as a second coat of Osmo Polyx®-Oil is required.
  • Woodgrain remains visible with 'transparent' tones and wood grain is hidden (after two coats) of 'intensive' tones.
  • The recommended application amount is 35 ml/m²
  • Lightly colored glazing effect: within 20 minutes after applying the coat, wipe with a cloth or a white pad along the wood grain.
  • As a coloring primer for flooring: Leave to dry for approx. 24 hrs to allow pigmentation to cure before applying second coat with Osmo Polyx®-Oil.
  • For alternative color tones, see Osmo Wood Wax Intesnive Finishes.
  • Multi-purpose cleaners such as washing up liquids and detergents are highly detrimental to the finished surface and is not recommended to be used as discoloration or staining may be possible.
  • Other household cleaning products such as varnish, bleach, baking soda, etc. are likely to cause severe discoloration or staining.
  • Always trial apply!

    More Info



    • 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





    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



    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



    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.



    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.





    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.
