Sizes375mL, 750mL, 2.5L, Sample Sachet (5mL)


Transparent (1 coat): 

  1. Using an Osmo Microfiber Applicator Fleece, work product thinly and evenly onto surface
  2. For a more solid colour, ensure product is applied evenly, then proceed to step 4
  3. For a subtle effect allow approx 15 minutes for oil to penetrate and then working with the grain, remove all excess product from the surface with a lint-free cloth
  4. Allow 8-10 hours drying time, ensuring space is well ventilated

Intensive (2 coats): 

  1. Once the first coat has dried (8-10 hours) apply a second thin coat using an Osmo Microfiber Applicator Fleece
  2. Allow 8-10 hours drying time, ensuring space is well ventilated




IMPORTANT: Only one coat of any Wood Wax Finish tone can be applied on flooring as the second coat must be clear Polyx®-Oil.

  1. Stir thoroughly prior to use.
  2. Trowel the product thinly onto the floor using an Osmo Double Sided Trowel or similar
  3. Using a single disc buffing machine and a non-abrasive White Pad, buff the product thinly and evenly into the surface
  4. Allow 8-10 hours drying time, ensuring the space is well ventilated
  5. In order to protect pigments, 1 coat of clear Osmo Polyx®-Oil is necessary as a top coat

Tip: If you can see swirly marks when buffing then there is too much oil on the surface. The oil must be buffed more thinly!


Cure Period: Osmo Hardwax-Oil(s) like all floor finishes have a cure period. We recommend allowing 2 weeks for the surface to fully cure and harden prior to damp-mopping or placing rugs/mats on the surface.
