Osmo One Coat Only HS Plus is ideal for use on all types of exterior woodwork such as horizontal and vertical sidings, windows, claddings, window shutters, carports, fences, pergolas, exterior plywood, shingles, beehives, dovecotes, summerhouses, greenhouses, flower boxes and more.

Ensure that the wood surface to be treated is clean, dry (maximum moisture content 20%) and free from any surface coatings such as paint or varnish.

  • Old paints and varnishes must be fully removed with a suitable paint and varnish remover prior to application of Osmo One Coat Only
  • Old microporous stains need only be cleaned or lightly sanded
  • For additional protection against blue stain and wood rot on exterior timber, treat with Osmo WR Base Coat 4005 and allow 12 hours drying time before over-coating with Osmo One Coat Only HS Plus

Always do a test area before starting any project to check suitability and compatibility. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.

Osmo One Coat Only HS Plus should be brush applied only. (Not suitable for spray application.) Stir well before and during use for a consistent finish.

  1. Only dip the brush a little into the tin and apply very thinly along the wood grain
  2. Apply Osmo One Coat Only thoroughly and evenly
  3. Allow to dry for approx. 12 hours with good ventilation
  4. Remove any excess product immediately with a lint-free cloth

Please Note: If applied too thickly, this product may leave shiny areas. However, these shiny areas will weather naturally within a short period of time leaving an even, satin-matt appearance.

For windows or other surfaces exposed to weathering, apply a coat of Osmo UV Protection Oil Extra over One Coat HS Plus when fully dry. This will give the surface a slightly satin appearance and improved durability of the finish. If possible apply to all sides of the wood.


Light marks and dirt can be removed by cleaning the affected surface with a mixture of water and Osmo Wash And Care.

Q. Can Osmo One Coat Only HS Plus be used on interior wooden surfaces?

A. Although this product is labelled as an exterior use product, Osmo do say that it can be used on interior wooden surfaces such as wooden ceilings and panelling. This product however is not suitable for use on wooden flooring or other surfaces that are subject to wear and tear.

A high quality product by Hugh Saxby

Osmo One Coat is an extremely effective wood preservative which is easy to apply and I hope - long lasting finish. Do apply thinly though.

One coat leaves a stain like finish which suits me but some may wish to repeat the coat by Mr K. O'Grady

As above suggests one coat will not be enough to satisfy some. it is easy to apply and in the location is adequate.

Great product by David Barwell

A great product leaving a professional finish. My only comment is to test an inconspicuous area before applying a 2nd coat. The 2nd coat to my garage door is much darker than I anticipated (red cedar) and as left a glossy finish in areas, although I understand this will turn to a matt finish after a week or two.

Nice easy to use paint, looks good by Kim

Sprayed onto park bench slats with WR base coat first, its got good coverage, did have some left over but that was probably because we sprayed it on and not brushed it on and even though we applied it on different types of hardwood they all looked same colour.

Larger can not the same as the sample, beware !!!! by Linda Tamplin

Bought the sample pot and this gave very good coverage eg one coat as it says, bought the larger pot to finish the job and other than the colour matching it is not the same, 3 coats is a better description, watery thin rubbish.

A note from us...

Hello Linda,

This product needs a really good stir before and during use. This is because the pigment can sink to the botton of the oil and that may be why it appeared thinner. Also this is a semi transparent finish that allows you to see the grain of the wood.

I'm sorry that you have not had the best experinece with the One Coat and if you have any questions about the application process or would like to send some photos of the problem area please do to wood@finishes.direct

Many Thanks Sam.

A note from us...

Mr Midgley,

Thank you for your reveiw and thank you for taking the time to talk to me this morning. I am sorry that Blackfriars told you that this product is a replacement for Timba Dura. The products are completely different and can not be used together. As you said the Timba Dura is no longer available so you will need to try and find a suitable replacement. Please give the product a try on some bare wood. I'm convinced you will be pleasantly surprised. Should you need any advice or assistance with products in the future please give us a call.
Kind regards,
Wood Finishes Direct.

Excellent product by Tomaso Branca

Osmo One Coat Only HS, is perfect for saving time, doesn't need a second coat, it does seem expensive but it is applied very thinly so it has a huge area of coverage. It brushes out easily, It is quick and easy to apply, as it say on the tin, rough timber need a bit more product.
