SHORT OF TIME? POLYX®-OIL RAPID IS THE WOOD FINISH FOR YOU
Polyx®-Oil Rapid from Osmo UK is a premium wood finish guaranteed to keep wooden surfaces in top condition. As the name suggests, this product offers rapid drying times. Ideal for all wooden floors and furniture surfaces, it is a high quality, water-repellent and tread-resistant wood finish based on natural ingredients. Available in a matt, clear and satin-matt finishes, Polyx®-Oil Rapid is extremely durable and hardwearing and enhances the wood’s natural character.
The high solid content of Polyx®-Oil Rapid provides a superior finish in extra quick time – between 4 – 5 hours. In fact, the short drying time allows two coats to be applied in just one day. And the wear resistance of treated floors even exceeds that of conventional parquet seals and varnishes.
As well as being used on solid wood, plank, strip, OSB and cork flooring, Polyx®-Oil Rapid is also well suited for the treatment of internal joinery and furniture such as tabletops. The range features three different finishes:
- 3232 Clear, Satin – the subtle, noble shimmer resembles satin and emphasises the wood grain modestly.
- 3262 Clear, Matt – provides an almost completely natural look. Light reflections are diffused.
- 3240 Rapid White – it is recommended to apply just one coat, followed by a clear coat. Alternatively, for a more intensive colour, apply just two coats as a stand-alone finish.
Polyx®-Oil Rapid is water repellent and extremely tough and hard-wearing. It will protect against dirt and common liquid spillages such as water, juice, tea, cola and wine. It is also saliva-resistant and sweatproof, meaning that it is suitable for use on surfaces and toys that children use.
Before application, ensure the wood surface is clean, dry and frost-free, with old paints and lacquers completely removed. After sanding the surface and mixing the finish, use an Osmo Flat Brush, Microfibre Roller or Floor Brush to thinly and evenly apply the product along the wood grain. Allow the surface to dry for approximately 4-5 hours under good ventilation, before applying a second coat.
Polyx®-Oil Rapid is based on natural waxes and vegetable oils and penetrates the wood whilst retaining moisture, thus allowing the wood to breathe. The microporous finish will not crack, peel or flake. Once applied, the finish will protect and enhance the surface for years to come.
