Please consult OSMO technical support at 1-844-OSMOCAN prior to carrying out a third coat

Tinting: Osmo Wood Wax Finish can also be used to lightly tint Polyx®-Oil 3054 up to a ratio of 10:1. Do not exceed a ratio of 10 parts Polyx®-Oil 3054 to 1 part Wood Wax Finish.

Ex. For Natural (no colour change from raw wood) tint Polyx-Oil with Wood Wax Finish 3111 White at 3% for the base-coat, followed by a coat of clear (untinted) Polyx-Oil as a top-coat.

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.
