Suitable Areas of Use:
Osmo End Grain Sealing Wax is ideal for areas such as the end grains of decking, cladding, roof soffits etc. It is suitable for hard and soft woods including Bangkirai, Teak, Oak, Pine, Spruce, Larch etc. The final appearance is influenced significantly by the wood and its condition so we strongly recommend a trial application particularly for unfamiliar surfaces.
5m² per litre per coat. Coverahe will depend significantly on the condition of the wood, these figures are smooth planed or sanded surfaces.
The surface must be clean, dry and frost free with a minimum moisture content of 20%. The minimum application temperature and temperature required for drying is 5°C but we would recommend not applying it below 10°C.
Use an Osmo Flat brush or brush suitable for wood oils, apply generously to the end grain. For optimal protection we recommend applying two coats.
