Osmo Top Oil - Natural - 3068

Note: Osmo Top Oil 3068 Natural may produce a slightly milky or white film effect on darker exotic hardwoods such as Iroko. This is caused by the very small amount of white pigment that Osmo add to the oil, to retain the natural, unfinished look of lighter woods such as Oak, Pine, Larch and Beech.

Osmo Top Oil - Acacia - 3061

OsmoTop Oil 3061 Acacia is a lightly pigmented / coloured version of Osmo Top Oil. This variation adds colour to worktops for an elegant finish.

Ensure that real wood kitchen work surfaces and worktops are clear of dirt, debris and other contaminates before applying Osmo Top Oil. New or previously oiled work tops can be lightly sanded prior to applying the oil with a 120 - 150 grit paper.

To remove existing paint or varnishes, use a Paint and Varnish Remover.

White spirit can also be used to remove impurities and other contaminates from the surface of the wood.

Fill small cracks, larger joints or holes in wood with Osmo Wood Filler Sand wood surfaces carefully. Begin with coarse sandpaper - final sanding work for furniture P220-240. Before oiling the surface, remove sanding dust with a broom or vacuum.

Always do a test area before starting any project.

Note: Osmo Top Oil is ready to use, please do not thin. Stir well before use.

This product has a creamy consistency and is quick and easy to apply with a lint free cloth (Manns Cotton rags), roller or paint brush. Apply thinly with 2 coats total. No primer is required.

The grain of the wood is enhanced once this product has been applied and if the final finish is not shiny enough, buffing it with a cloth will create a sheen. Because the natural oils and waxes penetrate deep into the surface they help to keep the wood supple thus preventing it from getting dry and brittle and reducing swelling and shrinkage.

Kitchen work surfaces and table tops that have been treated with Osmo Top Oil can be cleaned with Osmo Wash And Care and water on a damp cloth and wiped dry. Stubborn marks and stains can be removed by using Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner, that both cleans and regenerates oiled surfaces.

Should this product get marked it is easy to repair. Normally a clean and a re-application of the top oil is enough to make most marks disappear. However if a wine stain (for example) has been left over night it may start to penetrate deeper than usual. In this instance the area can be lightly sanded with a finishing pad and then refinished with the top oil.

If applying with a brush, clean used brushes immediately after use with white spirit before the oil hardens. Wash out any application cloths immediately or store in a airtight container (danger of spontaneous-combustion).

Osmo Top Oil has a shelf life of 5 years or more if the tin remains closed. If only part of the tin is used, pour the remaining oil into a smaller bottle, jar or container and fill to the rim before sealing with an air tight lid. The remaining oil should be stored somewhere where the temperature does not fall below 5℃ or exceed 25℃, such as an under-stairs cupboard. This will help to preserve the life of the oil for longer.

Coats of top oil should be allowed to dry overnight for at least 8 to 10 hours. Room temperature, humidity and type of wood can all influence the overall drying time.

If a deeper satin finish is required, the oiled surface can be polished with Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner once the surface has fully dried.

Our Favourite by Josh Kennard

We use this on all our small wooden products, chopping boards, salt and pepper mills, turned bowls. It's such a joy to use, it brings out all the natural beauty of the wood while leaving a matte finish. It's also the ideal product for topping up a tired finish on worn furniture, floors and worktops.

Absolutely brilliant! by Ben Robinson

Used Osmo oil on my oak worktops and it gave them a fantastically consistent costing which, so far, appears to be wearing well. Will definitely use it again when needed.

Top oil Finish exactly as expected by Bruce Jamieson

It came highly recommended. Very durable and the desired finish. Only a slight shift in the grain becoming stronger on oak kitchen worktops.

What a finish! by Paul Crawford

Used this after a base coat of Osmo Wood Protector on some untreated oak worktops and wow what a finish. Carried out the recommended treatment 24 hrs for the wood protector applied by brush. Then 4 coats of top oil over three days sanding with a 120 grit paper lightly between coats. Time will tell but at this precise moment they look absolutely amazing. Only 1 slight complaint, you need a fraction of the amount required I bought 4 tins expecting to use all of them and I only needed 1. All sides, including the cuts were religiously treated and probably only about 2 mtrs left out of 9mtrs of worktops not treated yet.
