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.
The product I usually use to refresh my oak kitchen work-top had been discontinued so I followed the recommendation of my local diy store to use the Liberon kitchen worktop finish. Complete disaster. Then went back tried something else - another disaster. I then remembered I had used Osmo before on oak floorboards so knew it was good. Purchased the Osmo for wooden worktops. Got the product in no time at all. The finish is the best ever. Better than the original new kitchen. I used a matt finish and I am really delighted. It went on easily, and I now have a very smooth, invisible finish which is also proving to be very tough. I could npt be more pleased.
Went on easily and went a long way. Quick to dry and gave a lovely finish. I waited a week to reapply as initially I thought the first coat had done the job. The second left an excellent hard wearing finish
I used this on oak butcher block worktop planned down and used for shelving. This osmo oil went on soooo easily. I was going to Danish oil it until a French polisher I know told me to use osmo oil. Then found out this is what my brother uses on his worktop and raves over it. Has given a great finish, I applied with lint free T shirt and very light 240 sand between coats to remove nibs, too be honest this wasn't need because the coat went on so well. I poured water over it when finished and it is brilliant, seals the wood 100%. I can't rave over this product enough. If I had wood kitchen work tops I would definitely use this. I'm just about to fit several oak doors in my house and I will now use the appropriate osmo product for sure. You won't regret using it
I asked for a product that would be tough enough to cope as a finish for a kitchen worktop. I wanted a product that would give a natural or pale finish on my Oak wood and I didn't want the yellowy finish most varnish/oils seem to provide. This ticks all those boxes. I applied as recommended and easily got 3 coats out of the tin. I am only a few weeks in but so far so good and the finish has been much admired. Ladies (and gents!) - this is the equivalent of natural sheer stocking as opposed to a pair of glossy american tan tights!!
really useful for worktops
We were not sure about using an oiled finish, but having used this, are 100% satisfied. It was easy to apply, and after a few days to fully harden is a very good surface for akitchen worktop.
Easy to use. Worktop looks great after only 2 coats.
This is the only product of its type that I have found that gives a true matt finish
Perfect for worktops.
Easy to use and makes my worktops look amazing
I put 3 coats on my solid oak worktop 2 years ago, and just did the same for a kitchen I've put in for my neighbour. Goes on fairly easily and dries quick for an oil treatment, you need to take care with the natural colour treatment not to put it on too thick because it will leave milky lines or colouring, have a dry rag to hand to remove the excess. After 2 years heavy use in my kitchen it's still going strong, but I will probably give it a top up coat in the next 6 months. I take care not to leave it wet round the sink but I think you need to do that with any treatment on a solid wood worktop. The whiteners in the natural colour oil are effective and leave a very natural colour to the wood but don't put it on too thick. Highly recommend it.
Have given 2 coats after light sand surfaces as good as new job done.
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.
