Osmo Country Colour is an opaque, satin wood finish for exterior use with excellent durability. Deep rich colours will hide the grain and colour of the wood but will allow for the wood's natural feel and texture to remain apparent. Based on natural vegetable oils with no active ingredients Osmo Country Color is an eco friendly product, that is microporous so allowing the wood to breathe. It will not crack, flake, peel or blister. Osmo Country Colour is ideal for outdoor furniture and buildings where its high coverage, long life and easy maintenance make it an extremely effective product. We strongly advise always doing a test area before the main application as different woods can affect the final appearance and it is impossible to accurately tell the colour from a screen or printed page.
Osmo Country Colour is best suited for any exterior wood where an especially durable coating is required:timber cladding, balconies, windows and window shutters, fences, pergolas, wooden shingles, garden furniture and summer houses, carports etc. Ideal for recoating old microporous finishes and weathered wooden surfaces.
Opaque, at first slightly satin-gloss then reducing to a satin finish based on natural oils for exterior wood. The microporous surface allows the wood to breathe and reduces swelling and shrinkage. Water-repellent, extremely weather-resistant and UV-stable, the surface does not crack, peel, flake or blister. No sanding is necessary when re-coating, just simply clean the surface and recoat; no primer is needed. Easy and simple to apply the finish stays workable while applying. When dry, finish is safe for humans, animals and plants and is suitable for children‘s toys as per EN 71.3 (European norm) and is saliva-resistant and sweatproof according to DIN 53160 (German industrial norm). The wood colour and grain is covered but the structure of the wood remains visible.
Method of Application:
Apply thinly and evenly to the clean and dry wood along the wood grain with an Osmo brush or Natural Bristle Brush or Osmo Microfibre Roller and spread well. Allow to dry for approx. 10-12 hours with good ventilation. After drying, apply a second coat – also thinly. When renovating, one coat applied to the clean and dry surface is usually sufficient.
1 litre covers approx. 26 m² with one coat. Product coverage depends significantly on the character of the wood. All information refers to smooth and planed/cut surfaces. Other surfaces may lead to reduced coverage.
If exterior surfaces (e.g. windows, cladding) need to have extra protection, apply one final top coat of Osmo UV-Protection-Oil Extra Clear (410 without biocide or 420 with biocide) after thoroughly drying. This protects against dirt and stains and extends the life of the finish. For Country Colour White 2101, please use Natural Oil Woodstain White 900 or UV Protection oil 429.
