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%). Fill small dents and holes with an appropriate porous filler. Only apply on frost free surface. For guaranteed performance it is always recommended to remove all traces of a previous finish.
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.
Apply with a firm, tight quality brush or floor brush with tight fine bristles or a commercial brushing machine.
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:
Oiled or waxed surfaces should not be cleaned with a steam cleaner or steam mop as this degrades the performance of the finish.
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.
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.
Osmo Polyx Oil was recommended to me by a woodworker friend. It was easy to apply to the stairs and I am very happy with the finish.
I purchased this oil to renovate an old floor and it worked a treat. Fast delivery and great service
I used a sponge to apply to an oak floor, fab result, only 2 coats needed. :)
I bought the 125ml tin to do a door. Hardly used any. Think I have enough to cover several more doors.
Excellent product. I would definitely buy it again.
Poly Oil gives a fine matt finish which is highly resistant to water and wine spills. I prefer to apply is with a cloth pad but also use brush application for surfaces requiring a heavier finish
It was easy to use and didn't smell.
Really easy to apply and a fantastic finish
easy to apply but it was so matt that the floor finish was killed dead
So easy to apply with bristle brush, and the finish was exactly what I wanted
Really love this product. I used it on flooring and got a beautiful finish. I plan to use it on my worktops too.
After having a new oak staircase fitted I was recommended this product by the installer, A little more expensive than I expected to pay but very satisfied with the end result- easy to apply and dries to a good satin sheen, very pleased and would certainly use this product again
This finish is great, leaving the wood as it should be, with just a hint of a sheen to it. Surface prep is, as with any finish, essential, but i haven't found an easier to apply or better looking finish. Be warned though, i have found this to be far superior to the 'rapid' version.
good clean oil covers exceptionally well, we will be using again on future projects.
My husband is an architect and has specified this product many times but this is the first time we have used it ourselves and we are delighted with the results! We have grad a fantastic response to our restored floods and would only ever use this product in the future!
Looks great on our wooden worktops and protects well. You can see the water beading on the surface. Easy to apply with a sponge, not too thick. Bought the very small tin this time to refinish a couple of years after the worktops were installed.
Covered 3 ledge & braced doors with some to spare ( would probably do a fourth ). Leaves a lovely, hard wearing finish & brings out the grain of the wood beautifully
Bought 2 pots last month. Applied on to pine floor, pulls out the colour of the grain. Better finish that I expected. Would definitely recommend on pine floor.
Leaves the natural wood well protected, but let's the natural beauty of the wood shine through. Because of the natural content of the product, brush cleaning is a doddle.
