The range of Clear Osmo Polyx Hardwax Oils 3032 Satin, 3062 Matt, 3065 Semi-Matt and 3011 Gloss were developed from natural oils and waxes, so giving the benefits of both wax and oil whilst making them one of the most hardwearing and durable protection for wooden furniture and floors. In comparison to most conventional finishes the natural vegetable oils and waxes give the wood a smooth surface finish with an even colouring. Osmo Polyx Oils are designed to enhance the wood's appearnace whilst still keeping the natural appeal of the wood's grain. The final appearance is as much down to the substrate as the oil so always carry out a small test patch before the main application.

Wood surfaces treated with Osmo Polyx oil are easy to maintain, most spills can simply be wiped up with a damp cloth. For regular cleaning we recommend using Osmo spray cleaner (8026) for small areas or add Osmo Wash and Care concentrate to water and clean the surface with a damp (not wet!) mop or Osmo Cleaning Kit. There is also an Osmo Spray Mop where the cleaning fluid is pre-mixed and easy to apply.
Use Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner to remove tough stains, this also helps to clean and regenerate the surface at the same time, this also can be applied using the Osmo Cleaning Kit.
Do not use aggressive cleaners or washing up liquid to clean surfaces treated with Osmo Polyx oil as they will remove the coating.
Do not use steam cleaners to clean floors treated with Polyx oil as it will permanently damage the coating.
Like all oils Osmo Polyx Oils (3032, 3062, 3065 & 3011) will enhance the natural tone of the wood and will give the wood an appearance similar to when its wet, so we always advise that a test area is required before the main application to ensure it is the appearance you are looking for.
If you apply the product too generously and with insufficient ventilation it will lead to significant delays in drying.
For dark and naturally oil rich hardwoods (e.g. Mahogany, Teak, Iroko, Wenge, Merbau, Jatoba etc.) we recommend using Osmo Wood Wax Finish Clear Extra Thin. A trial application is always recommended.
When applying to cork surfaces, because of their high absorbency please always ensure that the wood finish is applied especially thinly and allow for much longer drying times (at least 24 hours).
When apply Osmo Polyx oil to furniture interiors or drawers apply just a single coat using a lint free cloth.
If a higher gloss level is wanted wait until the Polyx oil is thoroughly dry and then apply a thin coat of Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner and polish when dry.
