How to manually apply Osmo
Apply thinly and evenly along the wood grain with the Osmo Natural Bristle Brush or the Osmo Microfibre Roller, and spread well.
Allow for good ventilation whilst drying. Apply a second coat as before. This should be applied onto a clean and dry surface. The final surface quality is dependent on the wood’s surface structure, we therefore always recommend to test the product on a small sample area before complete application.
How to mechanically apply Osmo
Spread evenly with the Osmo Scraper. Wait approx. 30-60 minutes, until the oil has penetrated the wood surface. Buff the oil into the surface using the Osmo FloorXcenter and a green pad. Directly after repeat these steps with a second coat. Using a white pad, spread the finish evenly across the surface area.
Tip: If the buffing machine starts to leave streaks because of over-application of the product, we recommend turning the pad over or replacing it.
Application of Colour
Step by step guidelines
Apply the first coat onto a clean and dry surface. Apply thinly and evenly along the wood grain, removing any excess if necessary.
The drying time may be 12 hours but it is strongly recommended to leave for at least 24 hours before applying the second coat. This is ensure the pigments have hardened to keep the intensity of colour during application of the next coat.
Apply a top coat of clear Polyx®-Oil onto the completely dry surface and apply thinly and evenly along the wood grain.
A harmonious colour tone with optical character. You will be able to feel the direction of growth of the wood’s natural fibres. The surface will feel very smooth along the grain and blunt against or across the grain. Always work with and along the wood’s grain to ensure a consistent and professional result.
