Why do some of the product labels say that the finish is ‘satin’ and some say ‘satin-matt’?
Osmo initially used the terminology ‘Satin-matt’ for the labelling of products in the UK which provided a Satin finish. This is because the products are developed in Germany and is the result of a direct German to English translation of the term ‘Seidenmatt’.
We discovered that this caused confusion and from 2013 onwards, our Satin finishes have since been labelled ‘Satin’.
We can assure you that any Osmo product that refers to the finish as ‘Satin-matt’ is an older can label but with the exact same finish as the current label ‘Satin’. The products will always be universally identified by the product code (e.g. 3032 or 420) as labelling may change from time to time.
