Did You Know?
Natural Plant Based Wood Finish
Did you know that Osmo Polyx-Oils are based on renewable plant-based, natural, vegan, and eco-friendly ingredients making it a highly sustainable product?
This is due to the 5 main ingredients used for the product to create these high-performance oil-based wood finishes, without needing to use harmful binding agents and additives. These 5 ingredients combine to develop the highest quality hardwax-oil which include sunflower oil, soya oil, thistle oil, candelilla wax and carnauba wax.
High Solid Wood Oil
Did you know Polyx-Oils are High Solid?
Not all hardwax oils are the same! A High Solid wood finish contains at least 65% solid components. All other coatings with lower concentrations of solids are considered as conventional coatings or high build. It’s important to know the difference.
Did you know that Osmo Polyx-Oils boast a high coverage rate of up to 30m2/litre?
In just one single coat, Polyx-Oils can achieve this coverage rate across most new bare wood types it is suitable for. Osmo recommends two coats for the initial application, whilst only one coat is necessary for simple recoatings in the future – no sanding is necessary!
Sell Via Dedicated Suppliers
Did you know that Osmo sells all its products via dedicated suppliers across the UK?
For the best prices, stock levels and delivery service, always purchase Osmo direct from Osmo suppliers. Osmo list all their suppliers on the ‘Where To Buy’ webpage, where you can search physical stores by location or by supplier name. Osmo also has a select number of suppliers that sell online via ecommerce stores, as well as their physical stores.
Clear Wood Finishes
Did you know that the Polyx-Oil range offers a variety of clear wood finishes?
Polyx-Oil Original offers 4 clear finishes as standard featuring Glossy 3011, Satin 3032, Matt 3062 and Semi-Matt 3065. These clear finishes enhance the natural wood character and colour, showcasing its grain while offering excellent protection and durability.
For added safety, Polyx-Oil Anti-Slip provides wood surfaces with all the performance attributes of Original, but with added slip resistance. Two slip resistant ratings are available for this product, depending on how much resistance is required for your application. Suitable for both domestic and commercial use!
Retain a Light Wood Colour
Did you know you can retain the lighter natural colour of wood?
Another popular finish is the Raw Effect 3044, which allows wood to retain its light character due to its additional white pigment content. Occasionally you may hear wood being described as ‘orange’ in colour, and this is where 3044 Effect Raw flourishes for wood projects.
For high traffic projects, Osmo recommends two coats of 3044 Effect Raw for maximum protection. Contact the team today for expert advice.
Multiple Wood Tints for Added Colour
Did you know Polyx-Oil Tints offers 7 translucent tinted colours for wood?
These finishes allow the wood grain to remain visible after the application of one and/or two coats! For darker colours schemes, Black 3075 and Terra 3073 are often utilised, while White 3040 is a popular choice to create a ‘scandi-style’ look within the home or workspace. For added flexibility, you can also use one coat of Tints plus one top-coat of an Original clear finish.
Surface Preparation to Grade P120
Did you know you only need to sand wood to Grade P120?
Often when using Osmo oils, users are preparing their wood surface to a sanding grade which is too fine. This closes the wood grain and does not allow the Osmo product to penetrate the surface and nourish the wood from inside out, offering maximum protection.
As a guide for wood surface preparation, in most cases begin with a coarse grade and sand to a final grade of P120. The product smoothens the wood surface for you which reduces the need for finer sanding.
We recommend sanding to P150 particularly for softwoods such as Pine or Spruce. Whilst sanding to finer grades (P180 or above), is best suited for cloth applications most often for use on furniture and joinery.
If your wood project is not using new wood, before you even begin surface preparation with sanding, old paints, lacquers, varnishes, and stains must be completely removed before applying Osmo oil. You can fill small cracks, holes, and larger joints in wood with Osmo Wood Filler.
