Osmo Top Oil is a strong, durable oil designed to enhance the natural beauty of wood on tables and kitchen worktops.
Based on natural waxes and oils, Osmo Top Oil does not peel, flake, crack or blister allowing for good performance in high humidity areas.
Hard wearing with excellent resistance against water, juices, wine, beer and fizzy drinks.
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. White spirit can also be used to remove impurities and other contaminates from the surface of the wood.
To remove existing paint or varnishes, use a Paint and Varnish Remover.
Note: This product must be stirred thoroughly prior to application.
This product has a creamy consistency and is quick and easy to apply with a cloth, 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.
Note: Osmo Top Oil 3068 Natural may produce a slightly milky or white film effect on some timbers such as Iroko and other exotic dark hardwoods. This is caused by the very small amount of white pigment that Osmo add to the oil to produce the natural, unfinished look on woods such as Oak, Pine, Larch, Beech and other lighter wood work tops.
Always do a test area before starting any project.
Kitchen work surfaces and table tops that have been treated with Osmo TopOil 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.
I bought this for my oak kitchen worktop's we had already used Danish oil which had made them go orange after sanding down used osmo top oil it's really great they now look lovely a light oak really pale just what I wanted the oil drys really quick so if your carefully can still use the worktop's in between coats I did three coats one each morning, they feel lovely wipe down easily nothing has stained them yet and the oil smells quite nice not to strong 🙂
Having spent £15 on a tiny mousse spray at a well known DIY Nationwide outlet, I discovered the Osmo Top Oil selling at the same price for 500ml. So pleased that I did and it works a wonder. I will definately purchase this product again when I run out of the current tin. Many Thanks
After saying what I intend to do, I was guided by the Salesperson and accepted what was suggested as I was a total beginner in this field. Not only was the Top Oil suggested, but a brush and some abrasive pads to use between coats, not as up-selling, but as a requirement, something I would never have thought of doing. Then a wipe with white spirit before next coat to remove the dust and clean the top down making it accept the new coat and smoother ! You cannot beat knowledge and staff impart this without one feeling stupid for not knowing.
Easy to alply. Fantastic durable finish.
Easy to use - put on 3 coats to a new piece of wooden worktop and an old part that had been sanded down. Made the whole thing look like new. Will I use it on a regular basis. Water droplets pooled on the surface so it will protect it from damage.
As an amateur when using wood oils, I found this one very simplistic, it did exactly what it said on the tin, the finish looks great, and the protection is strong.
Product arrived in good condition and when they said it would, The Osmo Top Oil was easy to apply and it had the desired effect when dried,(wet look).I would recommend this product to anyone.
Easy to use and worked extremely well on my re sanded worktop. I used clear so simply brought out the natural wood, very pleased. Shipped promptly and received on time.
A similar product had been on sale in a high street chain but discontinued. I couldn't find anything the same or similar until hearing of WFD and this product was an exact match for what I needed. Better price than expected and delivered a better finish too. What's more, WFD delivered in about 18 hours, what outstanding service. Forget high street chains for quality wood finishing products.
Clear instructions, easy to apply, excellent finish.
Best results obtained with cloth application in warmer conditions - repeated thin coats are the most effective. As with all such applications, Sandpaper scratch marks will be pronounced should preparation be substandard. A first thin coat will highlight such failings, but once this coat is dry a final fine sanding will easily get rid of blemishes. A product to give you confidence even when your preparation work is not perfect!
It has brought out our oak kitchen work tops a treat, totally recommend this product.
This is the first time I've used Topoil. My kitchen work tops have been varnished for 20 years. I made the decision to change to oil and it's so much easier , a pleasure to use. As its only been down for a few weeks, I cannot say how well it will last/do the job, but I have high hopes!
Very pleased with the result. The natural look is very convincing.
Used on elm worktops that I installed 3 years ago. Gave the worktops a hand sand to take out cuts and dings that had occurred over time and applied 3 coats by using bristle brush. Gave top coat a very light sand with 240 grit to finish. Result is superb.
Best wood treatment I've used: easy to apply. 2 coats leaves the wood with a good matt finish, mostly streak/ mark free. (A quick run with a fine abrasive pad removed any streaks)
It is easy to use and gives a nice finish. It is water resistant to light wetting but washing liquid etc leaves a mark.
There are some cleaning products on the market that due to there acidic or alkali can mark or damage Hard Wax Oils and so we recommend using a Ph Neutral product to clean the surface with. On our website there is Osmo Interior Spray Cleaner that is specially suited for use on Oiled surfaces.
Kind regards Sam.
After basic preperation I used this product on a solid beech topped kitchen island. It was very simple to apply with no mess or excessive odour. The result ater three application was a perfect satin finish which looks better now than when the island was new.
Used after Wood Protector on an oak worktop - really pleased with the finish.
