New untreated wood in its original form has a light, pale character from its natural 'raw' appearance. Sanded wood also has this effect. Osmo Polyx Oil Raw is designed to retain this appearance by using a small amount of white pigments to counteract the darker 'damp-look' that develops after application of a clear oil or varnish finish.
Please Note: All other oils in the Osmo range will give a darker look than Osmo Raw. This is what sets it apart, as it really gives that natural, untreated look. Please be advised that 125ml tins are printed in German only.
Before opening the 5ml sample sachets, squeeze the packet several times to ensure that the oil, wax and resins inside are thoroughly mixed.

Wood surfaces must be clean, dry and free from dust, dirt and any other surface contaminants prior to application of Osmo Polyx Oil Raw.
Always do a test area before starting any project to assess product suitability and final finish. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times. For the best results, allow the oil to warm to room temperature and stir thoroughly before and during application.
Please Note: Over application will result in a 'white wash' finish and in the worst cases, white swirls, brush marks and a sticky or tacky surface. On dark/reddish wood species, Osmo Raw is likely to produce a slightly 'milky' finish.
For daily maintenance a duster, mop or vacuum cleaner will be sufficient. An electric floor polisher can be used but instructions for oiled floors must be followed carefully. Floors treated with Osmo Polyx Oil Raw can be cleaned with Osmo Spray Cleaner or alternatively, a small amount of water and Osmo Wash And Care. For stubborn scuffs and stains, a very thin coat of Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner White (3087) can be used.
Localised areas that have become scratched, scuffed or worn can be quickly and easily repaired.
Q. Is this recommended for sandblasted or rough wood?
A. Probably not because the small content of white pigment in this product tends to collect in the grooves and other rough areas of the wood to show through more.
Q. I've heard this product can produce a white look, is this true?
A. THIN application is very, very important. If too much is applied then the small amount of white pigment in this product can remain on the surface to give a patchy or milky appearance. The product needs to be worked into the wood so that very little remains on the surface. Also the darker the wood is (prior to application) the more likely the white residue is to remain. Whilst some people don't want the slight white look, others find it quite desirable
Q. Can i use a steam cleaner or steam mop to clean my oiled floor?
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.
Cleaning oiled or waxed floors with a steam cleaner or steam mop introduces high temperature and pressure water which can penetrate and strip oiled or waxed finishes. Steam cleaners can also potentially damage wooden flooring.
