Osmo Wood Wax Finish Transparent (please see other listing for the Intensive version) combines all the advantages of oils and waxes in one unique product. It is resistant to water and dirt, wipe proof and stain resistant. As with most Osmo products it is easy to apply with no sanding required between coats and the final dry finish is safe for humans, plants and animals.
The transparent range are designed to allow the wood's natural grain and character to remain visible, if you wish the grain to be hidden please see the intensive version. For high wear areas such as floors a second coat of Polyx® oil Original is required. Otherwise for furniture and joinery a second coat can be applied for a more intensive colour tone.

How Long can it be kept: Up to 5 years and longer if the can is kept dry, closed and away from direct sources of heat. If thickened by frost store at room temperature for 24-36 hours before use.
Surface Preparation: Wood surfaces must be clean, dry and frost free with a maximum moisture content of 18%. Any old non porous paints and lacquers must be completely removed before application. Generally surfaces should not be sanded any finer than a 150 grit as this will effect absorption. All orders will be sent out with a detailed product information sheet.

Applying the product too generously or without sufficient ventilation will delay drying.
The final look is always influenced by the wood's characteristics so a trial application should always be carried out first.
Always choose colour tones that match or are darker than the natural tone of the wood.
Oils enhance the natural tone of timber and give a similar appearance to wood when wet.
For dark and oil rich exotic timbers such as Mahogany, Ipe, Balau etc we recommend using Osmo Wood Wax Extra Thin (see separate listing), a trial application is essential.
For interiors and drawers apply one thin coat with a cloth.
When overcoating white coated flooring use the lightly white pigmented Osmo Polyx Oil 3040 rather than the clear version.
Suitable for Worktops & Tables Extra thin is ideal for exotic woods
