Bona Hard Wax Oil - the natural oil, modified for superior protection of wood floors.
Bona Hard Wax Oil is a natural oil, modified for superior protection of wooden floors. It produces the warm look of an oiled floor while establishing a hardwearing and stain resistant surface that is spot-repairable and easy to maintain. Its a unique composition, formulated without harmful substances such as cobalt and ketoximes and is very low in odour and easy to handle. It can be applied with a roller, brush or trowel and leaves an open, breathing surface that reduces the risk of side-bonding. It's highly suitable for floors with underfloor heating.

Perfect sanding is a must for a clean and attractive surface finish. Please see the technical data sheet for the recommended sanding sequences for the surface you are treating. A trial application of Bona Hardwax Oil is recommended on a small section of the substrate before commencing.
How do I apply Bona Hardwax Oil?
Oils enhance the natural tone of wood. Applying the product too generously and with insufficient ventilation will lead to delays in drying.
For dark and extractive-rich hardwoods (e.g. Wenge, Merbau, Jatoba etc.), we recommend using Osmo Wood Wax Finish Clear Extra Thin. For Cork surfaces, due to their high absorbency please ensure that the wood finish is applied thinly. Longer drying times are to be taken into consideration (at least 24 hours).
Apply a thin coat to the clean and dry surface along the wood grain with Natural Bristle Brush, Microfibre Roller or 150mm Floor Brush, and spread well.
Allow to dry for approximately 8-10 hours with good ventilation. Lower temperatures and/or higher air humidity can increase the drying time. After drying, quickly apply a second thin coat. When renovating or recoating an already oiled surface, one coat applied to the clean and dry surface is usually sufficient.
After 2-3 weeks, the surface is completely and thoroughly hardened.
Wood surfaces treated with Bona Hardwax Oil are easy to maintain!
Remove coarse dirt with a broom or a vacuum cleaner. To clean, add Wash and Care concentrate to mop water and clean the surface with a damp mop. To refresh and clean intensively, use when necessary.
