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

Please Note: Osmo have made a change to the name 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 tinted 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.

Before opening the 5ml sample sachets, squeeze the packet several times to ensure that the oil, wax and resins inside are thoroughly mixed.

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.

How to apply Osmo Polyx Oil

We always recommend 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 with an Osmo Floor Brush - use in conjunction with the Osmo Telescopic Handle for ease of application
  2. Remove surplus and leave to dry (8-10 hours)
  3. Lightly de-nib the 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 an Osmo Professional Scraper or Osmo Double Blade Scraper, and for smaller areas use an Osmo Soft Tip 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

Regular Cleaning

For daily maintenance a duster, mop or vacuum cleaner will be sufficient. For commercial premises, an electric floor polisher can be used.

For optimal cleaning of floors treated with Osmo Polyx Oil, we recommend the Osmo Spray Mop or Osmo Floor Maintenance Kit.

For regular cleaning, we recommend using Osmo Wash and Care (8016) or Osmo Spray Cleaner (8026).

Deep Cleaning

For stubborn scuffs and stains, we recommend Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner 3029 or Osmo Intensive Cleaner.

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.


Renovating, even partially, is easy. Just clean and re-treat worn areas with a thin coat of Osmo Polyx Oil. No sanding is required, and no removal of a previous Polyx Oil finish. No repair marks will be visible if applied thinly and appropriately.

Osmo Maintenance Oil can also be used for maintaining and changing the gloss level of surfaces treated with Osmo Polyx Oil.

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 Osmo Hardwax 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).
