Osmo Polyx oil is an extremely versatile oil and forms part of Osmo's interior range of finishing oils.

Osmo have made a name change to their 'satin' sheen level in this range. It was called 'Satin Matt' and is now called 'Satin', the product however remains the same. The 125ml labels can sometimes be printed in German.

Surfaces must be clean and dry, removing all traces of dust and dirt before application (maximum moisture content 20%).Only apply on frost free surface.

For guaranteed performance it is always recommended to remove all traces of a previous finish.

  • Existing oiled surfaces can be lightly rubbed back with meths then fully cleaned
  • Pre-existing varnishes and sealers must be completely removed via sanding or using a suitable paint and varnish remover

Fill small dents and holes with an appropriate porous filler

  • To protect against blue stain in moist surroundings pre-treat with biocide-free wax impregnation, Osmo Wood Protector 4006

How to apply Osmo Polyx Oil

We always recommended applying a test area to ascertain drying times and effect. Osmo Polyx-Oil is ready-to-use from the tin, do not thin. Stir thoroughly prior to application. Osmo oils dry via oxidation so it is important to ensure good ventilation during application and drying.

Application to wood floors

Apply with a firm, tight quality brush or floor brush with tight fine bristles or a commercial brushing machine.

  • Apply first coat thinly and evenly along the wood grain
  • Remove surplus and leave to dry (8-10 hours)
  • Lightly de-nib surface, then clean
  • Repeat above steps for second coat

Application to Cork floors

Cork tiles are best treated before fitting to avoid overlapping treatment of edges which would lead to prolonged drying times. A cork floor treated with Osmo Polyx-Oil will get a robust, elastic and wear-resistant surface which will harden further over 2-3 weeks. Due to the extreme absorption power of this highly elastic, natural, material we recommend the following procedure:

  • Apply first coat very thinly with a broad varnish scraper, or for smaller areas a natural bristle-brush
  • Polyx-Oil should immediately absorb into the surface
  • Leave to dry for at least 24 hours
  • Apply second coat, again very thinly
  • Remove excess with cloth immediately
  • Leave to dry for at least 24 hours

Oiled or waxed surfaces should not be cleaned with a steam cleaner or steam mop as this degrades the performance of the finish.

Regular cleaning

For daily maintenance a duster, mop or vacuum cleaner will be sufficient. An electric floor polisher is very useful. For optimal results surfaces should be treated with Osmo Wash And Care.

Deep cleaning

For persistent stains, remove with Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner 3029. This will also revive the appearance of the surface.


Renovating, even partially, is easy. Just clean and re-treat worn areas with a thin coat of Osmo Polyx oil - no sanding, no repair marks, no removal of previous Polyx Oil finish. No repair marks will be visible if applied thinly and appropriately.

Q. Can i use a steam cleaner or steam mop to clean my oiled floor?

A. In short, 'No'. Oiled and waxed finishes on floors are 'Micro-porous' which means that although the wood is protected, it can still breath as it is not completely sealed as it would be with a varnish.

Cleaning oiled or waxed floors with a steam cleaner or steam mop introduces high temperature and pressure water which can strip and penetrate the oiled or waxed finish and potentially damage the wooden floor.

Q. I have an old tin of Polyx Oil in the shed which states 'Satin' on the tin. I can't find a satin version on your site. Do Osmo still make a satin oil?

A. Osmo 3032 used to be called 'satin' but a number of years ago, they changed the name from 'satin' to 'satin-matt', the sheen level however remains the same.

Q. Can i apply a coat of Osmo Anti Slip Decking Oil 430 on top of Polyx Oil to give some slip resistance on a staircase and floor?

A. Osmo Anti Slip Decking Oil 430 is classified by Osmo as an exterior product for use on decking and not suitable for this purpose. A better alternative would be Polyx Oil Anti Slip R9 or Polyx Oil Anti Slip R11.

Q. Can i store any remaining product?

Osmo oils dry via oxidation so it is important to store the Polyx Oil with no or minimal air "surrounding" it. As such pouring the remaining oil into a smaller air-tight container (tin or glass jar) and filling to the rim will aid in its longevity. Make sure you protect the stored oil from temperature extremes of heat and cold also.

I wanted an oil that would finish off something I had made to make it look like a finished item by Julie Emary

This was perfect - the oil wasn't too overpowering. It has made it look much better - it has more depth and a finished quality that wasn't there before applying the oil.

At last a matt oil by Charlotte DuBern

Did not want our floor to look shiny as it needs to look a bit aged, this was the best I'd tried and we went on to order a tin to do the whole floor.

Great producr with great result by George Amin

This product is excellent, did bring the OAK grain well with its natural colour. Need to sand the wood well finish with fine wool wire, use Vacuum cleaner to suck the wood dust. Use old brush to ensure all dust cleaned. Follow instruction. after the first coat dry use wool wire gently and apply second coat. Result smooth brilliant finish.
