Transparent, satin wood finish that uniquely combines the advantages of natural oils and waxes in one product. Osmo Polyx®-Oil Tints is stain resistant, water repellent and abrasion-resistant and results in a surface that is pleasant to the touch.

Wood surface must be clean, dry and frost-free (moisture content max. 18%). Osmo Polyx®-Oil Tints is ready to use. Do not thin. Stir well before use. Clean old microporous stains thoroughly. Old paints and lacquers must be completely removed. As a general rule, wear a dust mask during sanding works. Fill small cracks, larger joints or holes in wood (wood filler). Sand wood surfaces carefully. Begin with coarse sandpaper – final sanding work for flooring P120-150, for furniture P180-240. Before oiling the surface, remove sanding dust with a broom or vacuum. The finished surface is influenced by several factors, including the condition of the wood. Therefore, a trial application is always required, especially for unfamiliar surfaces.
METHODS OF APPLICATION
Transparent colour: With flat brush, microfibre roller, applicator or floor brush, apply thinly and evenly to the clean and dry wood along the wood grain and spread well. Allow to dry for approx. 24 hours under good ventilation. If a stronger colour intensity is desired, repeat the process (however maximal two coats).
Lightly stained effect: Within 20 minutes after application, wipe away product along the wood grain with a cloth or white pad. Allow to dry for approx. 24 hours under good ventilation.
Intensive colour: For this application, we recommend Osmo Wood Wax Finish.
Important: Apply maximum one coat of Polyx®-Oil Tints to flooring (Not applicable for Polyx®-Oil Tints White, see Notes). After thoroughly drying, a top coat with a clear Osmo Polyx®-Oil is to be carried out.
Approx. 24 hours (normal climatic conditions, 23 °C/50 % rel. humidity). Lower temperatures and/or higher air humidity can increase the drying time. Ventilate well while drying. After 2-3 weeks, the surface is completely cured.
1 litre covers approx. 30 m² with one coat. Coverage depends significantly on the condition of the wood. All information refers to smooth and planed/ sanded surfaces. Other surfaces may lead to differences in coverage.
Oils enhance the natural tone of wood (permanent wet effect). Applying the product too generously and insufficient ventilation lead to delays in drying time. For dark and extractive-rich hardwoods (e.g. Wenge, Merbau, Jatoba etc.), we recommend using Osmo Wood Wax Finish Clear Extra Thin. A trial application is recommended. When applying Polyx®-Oil Tints White, also use Polyx®-Oil Tints White as the top coat to prevent
yellowing. For cork surfaces, due to their high absorbency please ensure that the wood finish is applied especially thinly. On cork, longer drying times are to be taken into consideration. Caution: Apply max. one coat thinly to cabinet interiors and drawers with a cloth. Wood surfaces treated with Polyx®-Oil Tints are easy to maintain. Remove coarse dirt with a broom or a vacuum cleaner. To clean, add Osmo Wash and Care concentrate to mop water and clean the surface with a damp (not wet!) mop. Important: Apply maximum one coat of Polyx®-Oil Tints to flooring. Any brushstrokes can be removed with an unused, dry Microfibre Roller within 30 minutes after the application. After thoroughly drying, carry out a top coat with a clear Osmo Polyx®-Oil.
