In Detail

Osmo Polyx Oil is a professional finish suitable for all wooden floors including solid wood flooring, laminated flooring and cork floors. It can also be used on slate, screed, terracotta and a range of other unglazed tiles. Polyx Oil is also well suited for the treatment of furniture, kitchen worktops, doors, MDF, oriented strand-board as well as other types of particle board.

Osmo Polyx Oil provides a finish that is hard-wearing and extremely tough. It is water repellent and dirt resistant. The finish is impervious to wine, beer, cola, coffee, tea, fruit juices, milk and water etc. when dry. Polyx Oil is based on natural vegetable oils and waxes; is micro-porous and does not crack, flake, peel or blister. It is an ideal treatment even in rooms with high humidity but it should be noted that oiled or waxed surfaces should not be cleaned with a steam cleaner or mop.

Osmo Polyx Oil Raw, helps to retains the untreated appearance of timber by using a small amount of white pigments to neutralise the permanent 'wet-look' that develops after application of a clear finish.

Available in Clear Gloss, Satin, Matt or Raw and in a range of sizes.

Excellent finish

Having used Danish oil in the past, I wanted something that protected my projects more. I went for Osmo Poly-X after it was recommended, and I've not looked back. For the best results, I have found that you should sand no more than to 240 grit before the first coat, which is then applied perhaps more "generously" than subsequent coats. I initially apply with and against the grain to ensure it gets inbetween the grain, before finishing off with the grain. When totally dry, I lightly rub any nibs down with 400 grit paper, clear away any dust, and then apply two further coats, thinly, with the grain, ensuring I let it dry out completely between coats, and any excess is buffed off after about 15 minutes of application.

The result is a lovely, smooth, loss-gloss (I use the Satin variety) surface which is very durable to water, cups, mugs of tea, etc. People can't help but comment on the lovely smooth finish of the wood.

The only downside is the cost, but the results are worth it. Be careful about getting a large tin, however, as it does have a tendency to want to solidify on the inside edge of the can if you are not careful (especially having opened and resealed the lid so many times).

Top Quality Finish

This is an excellent product producing a very nice finish which enhances the wood grain - even plywood. Yes, it does seem expensive but it is applied very thinly so it has a huge area of coverage. I have used it to seal and protect a workshop - ceilings, walls, floor, cupboards and a workbench and the end result is very pleasing. It has to be applied very thinly otherwise it will take an.an age to dry - 10/12 hours per coat if applied thinly as it says on the tin. It brushes out easily and does not take the effort that paint or varnish would. It does not drag the surface as overbrushing paint or varnish would and touching up missed areas does not leave any detectable marks. It is quick to apply, has s huge coverage and this makes it value for my money. Advice on a suitable finish for my needs was provided.by Axminster - once again my thanks to them for the sound advice.
