Product Description

Osmo Wood Wax Finish (Transparent Colours) is an interior wax suitable for furniture, floors and various different wooden surfaces. Osmo Wood Wax Finish (Transparent Colours) offers a dirt resistant and water repellent protection.

Osmo Wood Wax Finish (Transparent Colours) is based on natural vegetable oils and waxes that penetrate deeply into the wood keeping it elasticated and healthy. Osmo Wood Wax Finish is micro-porous meaning the wood can breathe, releasing moisture that evaporates, reducing shrinking and swelling.

Application

Osmo Wood Wax Finish (Transparent Colours) Can be applied with a floor brush, wooden floors containing a very high level of oil should be pre-treated by rubbing the sanded surface with a cloth soaked with turpentine spirit to remove some of the existing oil. Make sure all surfaces are clean, dry and free from contaminants before application.

Surface/Environment

For decades Osmo Wood Wax Finish (Transparent Colours) has been used in rooms with high moisture like kitchens and bathrooms. Osmo Wood Wax Finish (Transparent Colours) helps surfaces to breathe and release moisture into the air so surfaces are less likely to shrink or swell up, causing cracks and flakes. It penetrates deeply into the wood and is particularly well suited for the treatment of dark hardwoods like Jatoba, Meranti, Wenge, Merbau and Ebony, to name a few.
