Clear wood finish for wooden flooring in indoor areas for which a higher slip resistance is required. Osmo Polyx®-Oil Anti-Slip uniquely combines the advantages of natural oils and waxes in one product. It is stain-resistant, water-repellent and abrasion-resistant. In comparison to conventional finishes, the use of plant ingredients creates a more even colour and more harmonious appearance.
Osmo Polyx®-Oil Anti-Slip is ideal for the protection of all wooden floors for which higher slip resistance is required (commercial/public interiors), such as solid wood, plank, strip, OSB and cork flooring.

Clear Semi- Matt, Anti-Slip (R9): An R9 slip rating is more than adequate for domestic and commercial applications where a safety floor is not required.
Clear Satin, Anti-Slip Extra (R11): An R11 slip rating is an even stronger resistance against slipping, can also be used on sloped surfaces or ramps.
Wood surface must be clean, dry and frost-free (moisture content max. 18%). Osmo Polyx®-Oil Anti-Slip 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 (with Osmo Wood Filler). Sand wood surfaces carefully. Begin with coarse sandpaper – final sanding work for flooring P120-150. Before oiling the surface, remove sanding dust with a broom or vacuum cleaner. 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
With Osmo Flat Brush, Floor Brush or Microfibre Roller, apply thinly along the wood grain and spread well. Allow to dry for approx. 8-10 hours under good ventilation. After drying, quickly apply a second coat also thinly. For renovation works on previously oiled surfaces, one coat applied to the clean and dry surface is usually sufficient.
Note: Osmo Polyx®-Oil Anti-Slip cannot be evened out with a single disc machine.
Approx. 8-10 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, surface is fully cured.
1 litre covers approx. 24 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.
Polyx®-Oil Anti-Slip (Semi-Matt) is distinguished by its smooth, yet non-slip surface – a slip resistance class R9 is achieved.
Polyx®-Oil Anti-Slip Extra (Stain) is distinguished by its extremely high surface grip. Special additives provide the dried coating a structure that enables a slip resistance class R11.
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.
Wood surfaces treated with Osmo Polyx®-Oil Anti-Slip are easy to maintain. Remove debris 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. To refresh surfaces, use Osmo Maintenance Oil when necessary.
