Oil Stain



Colour and protect wooden floors without visible transitions, applying a single coat of the Oil Stain will create a transparent look showing the wood’s natural grain, whilst an optional second coat can give a more intensive colour tone. A clear final coat of Osmo Polyx®-Oil is a must to protect pigmented finishes from wearing the colour.

  • Old wood finishes including wood oils, stains, paints and lacquers must be fully removed before staining. Wooden floors and other wood should be sanded carefully with an appropriate grit abrasive to ensure a consistent stain. Uneven sanding or poor sanding technique may result in an inconsistent finish.
  • Wood surface must be clean, dry and frost free (moisture content max. 20%)
  • Small cracks, larger gaps or holes in the wood can be filled with a wood filler
  • Wood surface needs to be sanded carefully, final sanding for flooring P100-150, furniture P180-240
  • Remove abrasive dust with a vacuum cleaner before applying the wood stain
  • Wooden surfaces can be de-greased with meths to remove surface contaminates

How To Apply Osmo Oil Stain

Always do a test area before starting any project to check suitability and compatibility.

Depending on the desired result, use either the Osmo Floor Brush, a Osmo Roller or the Osmo Double Blade Scraper for application. If using the Osmo scraper, massage the wood stain into the surface of the timber with a single disk mechanical buffing machine and white buffing pad.

  1. Product does not need to be thinned, stir periodically throughout application process
  2. Ensure good ventilation during application and drying
  3. For a more intensive colour tone, a second coat may be applied
  4. For furniture, apply with a lint-free cloth
  5. A top coat of Polyx-Oil must be applied

Transparent tones: One coat of Oil Stain

Intensive tones: Two coats of Oil Stain

Finishing methods for optimal results

The majority of the Osmo Oil Stains should finished with Osmo Polyx Oil for full durability and longevity however the following colour tones and circumstances require special attention:

  • Osmo Oil Stain – White (3501): Over-coat with Osmo Polyx-Oil 3031 Matte or Osmo Top-Oil 3025 Natural to avoid an off-white or yellowing of the finish.
  • Osmo Oil Stain – Natural (3519): Osmo recommend applying a thin coat using either a floor brush or microfibre roller. After drying, a clear coat of Osmo Polyx Oil should be applied. The wood surface looks natural with no darkening of the timber. The finish may appear chalky on red /dark wood species.
  • Dense exotic hardwoods or oily woods such as Wenge, Meranti, Merbau etc, Osmo recommend using either Osmo Polyx Oil 2K or Osmo Wood Wax Finish Extra Thin (1101).

Cleaning of Wooden Floors and Furniture

Wooden surfaces should never be steam cleaned or saturated with water.

Regular Cleaning

For day to day cleaning, use a vacuum cleaner or dry sweep / wipe to remove dust and dirt particles from the surface. To remove dirt, shoe scuffs and other surface marks, we recommend Osmo Wash and Care (8016) and a slightly dampened mop or cloth.

Deep Cleaning

For a deeper clean to remove stubborn scuffs and marks, use a stronger concentration of Osmo Wash & Care with a damp cloth or mop. An alternative solution may be to use Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner.


For wooden floors and surfaces that have become dull, scratched or stained, lightly sand with a finishing pad or fine grit sandpaper to remove the damage, before applying a fresh coat of Osmo Polyx-Oil to the effected area. Take care not to sand the area back to bare wood by removing the oil stain.
