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

Please Note: Osmo have made a name change to the naming of their 3032 product 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.

Osmo Polyx Oil Clear can be tinting with colours from the Osmo Oil Stain range, up to a maximum of 10% i.e. 250ml of Osmo Oil Stain mixed with a 2.5Ltrs of clear Polyx Oil. Special care and attention must be taken when measuring and mixing.

Surfaces must be clean and dry, removing all traces of dust and dirt before application (maximum moisture content 20%). Only apply on frost free surfaces. 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 Product Stripper / Remover
  • Use an appropriate porous filler if repairing small dents and holes
  • 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

The ideal application tool is a firm, fine, natural bristled brush, however the key to a great finish is thin application with removal of any surplus.

  1. Apply first coat thinly and evenly along the wood grain
  2. Remove surplus and leave to dry (8-10 hours)
  3. Lightly de-nib surface, then clean
  4. 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:

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

Please Note: 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 Osmo Polyx hardwax oil?

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 3032 in the shed which states 'Satin Matt' on the tin. I can't find a satin version on your site. Do Osmo still make a satin matt oil?

A. Osmo 3032 used to be called 'satin-matt' but a number of years ago, they changed the name from 'satin-matt' to 'satin', the sheen level of the product 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 Osmo Polyx Oil Anti-Slip R9 or R11.

Q. Can I store any remaining product?

Osmo Polyx Oil dries 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).

Easy to apply and user friendly and a relatively low impact product. Leaves a good finish to seal protect and enhance.

Oh aye, it's oil alright by Daniel Marfany

Yep, it is definitely an oil, and it goes on pretty greasy at first but then it dries into something more akin to getting a massage off a sea-lion. In a good way.

Easy to apply by cloth and leaves a good finish by Peter Rattenbury

Excellent wood finishing product leaving a very smooth gloss finish and very easy to apply using a cloth , the only downside is that it takes a day for each coat to dry, but only needs 2 coats on bare wood !

Very effective and just what I wanted - far better than floor varnish or wax by Andreas KING

Ideal for my sanded wooden floor where the tops of nails can be seen as, unlike any water-based floor wax which has caused the nail heads to look rusty in other floors, the lost-head nails in this floor remain unaffected as this is an oil.
