APPLICATION


Ensure that the surface to be treated is completely dry and absorbent. If necessary, all existing sealants should be completely removed. Working in small, controllable areas at a time, apply the product very thinly and spread well using either an Osmo Flat Brush, Floor Brush, Oil Finish Applicator Fleece (Hand Pad Holder) or Microfibre Roller. Remove any excess product (pooling or streaks) with a pad or a lint-free cloth. For very large areas to be treated, remove excess oil with a rubber scraper and polish with a buffing machine(white pad).Important: the liquid oil must be absorbed into the surface. Following application, there must not be any oil left on the surface. Allow to dry for 8-10 hours. Ventilate well while drying. Apply the second coat also very thinly. Again, remove any excess. When renovating already oiled surfaces, normally one coat on a cleaned surface is sufficient.

TIPS


  • The product will intensify the colour of the substrate (stone, concrete etc.)
  • White or very light-coloured stone/surface may yellow slightly as result of the oil treatment!
  • If used onto soft hand-made Terracotta floor tiles, Concrete Oil may not produce the high level of wax required for these tiles. Always speak to the tile manufacturer for finishing advice for softer floor tiles.
  • For acid sensitive stones like marble and limestone, avoid prolonged contact with acidic liquids such as fruit juice, wine, cola, and vinegar. Prolonged contact with acidic substances can cause etching to acid sensitive surfaces.
  • It is important to maintain surfaces and recoat as necessary, because on worn surfaces liquids like water and olive oil can penetrate and potentially stain tiles.
  • Day to day cleaning is recommended using Osmo Spray-Cleaner.
  • Pre-sealing of absorbent tiles prior to grouting might be possible. We highly recommend a trial is carried out first to ensure coloured grouts do not stain the tile. Please ensure that the tiles are completely dry before using Osmo Concrete Oil. We highly recommend allowing at least 7 days for newly laid tiles to release moisture from adhesives before sealing. Very porous surfaces my require 2 x thinly applied coats of Osmo Concrete oil prior to grouting. Following application of Osmo Concrete Oil, remove all excess product from the surface and allow 24 hours for each coat to dry before grouting. Following grouting, the fully dried and cured grout can then be sealed with one thinly applied coat of Osmo Concrete Oil.
