Simple application – without primer or intermediate sanding – this saves time and money. Wood surface must be clean, dry and frost-free - moisture content max. 18%. Osmo Polyx® Oil Effect 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).
For dark wood species: Apply thinly and evenly to the clean and dry wood along the wood grain with Osmo Natural Bristle Brush, Osmo Microfibre Roller or Osmo Floor Brush 150 mm, and spread well. After drying, apply a second coat also thinly and quickly with a clear Osmo Polyx®-Oil Original.
