The wood's true beauty is accomplished by using Osmo Polyx-Oil. The emphasis on the wood's grain and natural characteristics provides a warm and rich effect to ensure that any interior looks luxurious and elegant.
Osmo Polyx® Oil Effect is a decorative oil, available in Gold and Silver effect. It creates a decorative finish on dark wooden flooring such as Smoked Oak and Walnut, that combines the advantages of natural oils and waxes in one product.
Osmo Polyx® Oil Effect leaves a smooth surface and is resistant to dirt, water and abrasion. In comparison to conventional finishes, the use of plant ingredients creates a more evenly coloured and more harmonious appearance.
Osmo Polyx® Oil Effect is ideal for protecting all darkened Wooden Floors (Solid Wood, Plank Wood, Blockstrip, Oriented Strand Board and Cork floors) and darkened wooden furniture.

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 Polyx®-Oil is recommended on a small section of the substrate before commencing.
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).
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 Polyx®-Oil 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 mop. To refresh and clean intensively, use Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner when necessary.
If a higher gloss level is desired, after thoroughly drying apply Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner thinly and polish when dry.
