Osmo Top Oil is a strong, durable oil designed to enhance the natural beauty of wood on tables and kitchen worktops drying to a clear, matt finish.
Based on natural waxes and oils, Osmo Top Oil does not peel, flake, crack or blister allowing for good performance in high humidity areas.
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 2-3 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 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.
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.
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.
It has brought out our oak kitchen work tops a treat, totally recommend this product.
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)
Used after Wood Protector on an oak worktop - really pleased with the finish.
Good service, good products, would highly recommend
Good product Would recommend to a friend. Leaves a good finish
Excellent have fitted hundreds of timber worktops over the years this is by far the best product to finish one will use on all future jobs and recommended to all my customers
Seems thicker and more substantial than other worktop oils leaves a great finish as with all the other Osmo products I have used.
This is a great product, used it in the past and it protects wonderfully.
Very easy and quick to apply, went on evenly and absorbed quickly. The finished effect is completely matt, with very little change in colour (used on IKEA Oak worktop). Have used Danish oil on worktops in the past, this is so much easier, with none of the stickiness of oil. Can't say how well it will last as only been down a couple of weeks, but will be easy to re-apply when needed.
After reading the reviews I sent for this product. Used an old clean white cotton t'shirt cut into smaller cloth sized pieces to oil new oak worktops. Put on 3 thin coats. Applied in the same direction as the wood grain. Allowed 12 hrs to dry between coats (overnight is best). This is the first time I have used the Osmo Matt. An absolutely fantastic natural wood finish; no sheen and a mellow natural pale oak colour. I shall be using this product again.
I have used this oil before and would use it again - a much nicer finish than others I have tried for my oak kitchen worktops - produces a nice even matt finish,would recommend,
Easy to use and gave a lovely finish. Very pleased with it.
A far better product than Danish oil wish I had found this company years ago as there knowledge of products is unbeatable
Just use very thin coats and take care to rub in streaks before dry.
Very easy to apply and has provided just the finish we were after on our beech block worktop.
First time using a product, like this would highly recommend it really easy to use applying was easy with the cloths I purchased my oak worktops look amazing & water just pools up for easy cleaning.
