Osmo hardwax oils offer a top quality treatment for wooden flooring, other internal and external woodwork. These are natural wood finishes with all the goodness of nature, made from natural oils and waxes, canauba wax, sunflower oil, candilla wax, thistle oil and more.
Osmo hardwax oils provide natural character, durability and protection for all interior and exterior timber. Wooden floors are often exposed to great stresses and strains, therefore they require extra protection and Osmo hardwax oils offer a very durable finish. This protection should not disturb or change the natural appearance of the wood‘s surface.
The range of Osmo hardwax oils provide this protection from within the wood itself, bringing the natural grain and character of the wood to life whilst offering maximum protection and allowing it to “breathe”. This helps to maintain its elastic surface qualities and allows it to compliment its environment. With Osmo natural wood finishes the wood surface retains its natural character and charm but also becomes abrasion, water and dirt resistant – a long lasting surface protection against those small daily mishaps.

The satin-matt sheen can be intensified by slight polishing. Grain and texture of the wood are accentuated. A wooden floor which has been treated with Osmo HARDWAX-OIL will become more beautiful and valuable with age.
Product based on natural oil and wax Osmo POLYX® Hardwax-Oil Rapid is based on natural vegetable oils and waxes.

Shrinking and swelling are reduced.
Ideal for all wooden floors, solid or plank wood, strip parquet, OSB or cork flooring. Highly recommended for wooden furniture. Also for slate and screed as well as terracotta and other natural (non-glazed) ceramic tiles.

Product information: Polyx®-Oil Rapid High Solid
3232 satin-matt and 3262 matt clear interior wood finish
Wood surface must be clean and dry (moisture content max. 20%). Polyx-Oil is ready to use, please do no thin, stir well before use.
Clean or slightly sand old microporous finishes, remove old varnish (Osmo Paint Remover or by sanding). Small cracks, larger dents and small holes in the wood can be filled Osmo Woodfiller. Sand carefully before application starting with a coarse paper – final sanding for flooring P100-150, furniture P180-240. Remove dust etc. thoroughly from the surface before application (vacuum cleaner).
Apply first coat thinly, thoroughly and evenly along wood grain within 10-15 min. Remove surplus. Leave to dry 4-5 hours, ensuring good ventilation. Apply second coat as above. Remove surplus and leave to dry over night. Ventilate well. A further treatment of the floor is not necessary. When thoroughly dry, the surface can be polished with hand polisher or polishing machine. If a more satin finish is desired, apply Osmo LIQUID WAX CLEANER (also available as Spray) thinly and polish after
drying (for small areas use Osmo POLISHING PAD). When using a commercial brushing machine please follow instructions of manufacturer.
Due to the extreme absorption power of this highly elastic natural material we recommend the following procedure:
Apply first coat very thinly with a broad varnish scraper (the HARDWAX-OIL will immediately be absorbed by the cork surface). Leave to dry for a least 6-8 hours (if possible longer) – ensure good ventilation. Apply second coat very thinly with a roller of foamed plastics. Remove with cloth immediately any excess of finish (edges). Leave to dry for at least 12 hours. Small areas of cork flooring can also be treated by brush (Osmo HAND BRUSH). Please make sure to apply very thinly. Cork tiles are best treated before laying in order to avoid overlapping treatment of edges which would lead to prolonged drying times. A cork floor treated POLYX®Hardwax-Oil Rapid will get a robust, elastic and wear-resistant surface which will harden further over 1-2 weeks
Cleaning of tools:
Clean working utensils with Osmo Brush Cleaner (benzene-free).
At least 4-5 hours - provide good ventilation (Osmo wood finishes dry by oxidation and therefore need air). Dust dry - after approx. 2 hours. For cork surfaces the drying time can be 12 hours or longer.
