How to use Osmo Polyx Oil Rapid Tints

1. Wood surface must be clean, dry and frost-free (moisture content max. 18%).
2. Osmo Polyx Oil Rapid is ready to use. Do not thin. Stir well before use.
3. Clean old micro-porous stains thoroughly. Old paints, varnishes and lacquers must be completely removed.
4. Always wear a dust mask while sanding. Fill small cracks, larger joints or holes in wood (with Osmo Wood Filler). Sand wood surfaces carefully. Begin with coarse sandpaper – final sanding work for flooring P120-150,for furniture P180-240. Before oiling the surface, remove sanding dust with a broom or vacuum cleaner.
5. The finished surface and the product coverage are influenced by several factors, including the condition of the wood. Therefore, a trial application is always required, especially for unfamiliar surfaces.
6. Apply with Osmo Flat Brush, Micro-fibre Roller or Floor Brush
7. Apply thinly and evenly to the clean and dry wood along the wood grain and spread well within 10-15 minutes.
8. Allow to dry for approx. 4-5 hours under good ventilation.
9. After drying, apply a second coat also thinly and quickly.
10. When renovating or re-coating an already oiled surface, one coat applied to the clean and dry surface is usually sufficient.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Once your surfaces have been treated with Osmo Polyx Oil Rapid, it is recommended to use the surface as little as possible for around 1 week to fully cure. It is not recommended to regular household cleaners as they are not designed to clean oiled wooden surfaces and can damage them over time. Remove dust and dirt by vacuum cleaner or broom. For regular daily cleaning on wood floors, it is recommended to use Osmo Wash and Care. Simply add the Wash and Care to water and clean the floor with a damp (not wet) mop and wipe dry immediately. For wood surfaces like furniture or worktops use Osmo Spray Cleaner as this will clean your wooden surfaces without removing any oils and waxes, so will not dry the wood out. This will also remove many minor marks. It is also recommended to dust on a regular basis using a plain lint free cloth. If you accidentally scratch or damage the finish, you can either lightly sand the affected area and re-apply the same wood oil that you originally used. For lighter marks or scuffs, this can usually be cleaned by using Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner. If you want to create a higher sheen level to your finish you can also use Osmo Maintenance Oil. This can revive dull and matt wood flooring so helps to avoid time-consuming sanding and renovation.

Please note

Cleaning of tools: With Osmo Brush Cleaner (free of aromatic compounds).

Oils enhance the natural tone of wood (permanent wet effect). Applying the product too generously and insufficient ventilation lead to delays in drying.

For dark and extractive-rich hardwoods (e.g. Wenge, Merbau, Jatoba etc.), we recommend using Osmo Wood Wax Finish Clear Extra Thin. A trial application is recommended.

For cork surfaces, due to their high absorbency please ensure that the wood finish is applied especially thinly. On cork, longer drying times are to be taken into consideration (at least 6-8 hours). Caution: Apply max. one coat thinly to cabinet interiors and drawers with a cloth.

Wood surfaces treated with Polyx Oil Rapid tints are easy to maintain. To clean, add Osmo Wash and Care concentrate to mop water and clean the surface with a damp (not wet!) mop. To refresh and clean intensively, use Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner when necessary.

If a higher gloss level is desired, after thoroughly drying apply Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner thinly and polish when dry.

Drying time: Approx. 4-5 hours (normal climatic conditions, 23 °C/ 50 % rel. humidity). Ventilate well while drying. Lower temperatures and/or higher air humidity may increase drying times.

Coverage: Product coverage for 1 coat is 24 m²/1 l. It depends significantly on the character of the wood. All information refers to smooth and planed/cut surfaces. Other surfaces may lead to deviations in coverage.

Disposal: Dispose of product residuals and completely emptied containers according to the local official guidelines (EU-waste code key number 08 01 11*). Only fully emptied containers can be recycled.

Storage: 5 years and longer if stored in the closed original can. If thickened by frost, store at room temperature for 24 hours prior to use.

Questions and Answers

Does this product have any UV protection?

Osmo Polyx Oil Rapid Tints does not come with UV protection. We do offer Osmo Uv Protection oil extra in a clear or tinted version but this is meant for exterior use, although some tradesmen do use this on the interior wood of conservatories and windows etc.

Can Osmo Polyx Oil Rapid Tints be used on cork?

Yes this can be used on cork surfaces but because cork is so absorbent, it is recommended to only apply the oil very thinly. Also leave to dry for longer than usual , approximately 8 hours before adding a second coat.

How do I maintain the finish once applied?

Once you have added your final coat of Osmo Polyx Oil Rapid Tints, it is recommended to leave for around 14 days to fully cure before adding any maintenance products. After this time you can use Osmo Wash and Care mixed with clean water. This can be applied with a slightly dampened lint free cloth. Ensure the cloth is not too wet as you only want to have it very slightly dampened.

What is the difference between normal Polyx Oil and Polyx Oil Rapid?

Osmo Polyx Rapid offers the same benefits of the normal Polyx Oil clear but has much faster dying times. This Hardwax Oil usually dries within 4 to 6 hours so unlike the original, you can apply 2 coats within 1 day. This is perfect if you need to complete your wood treatment in a rush and is often used by tradesmen who are short on time.

What sheen does Osmo Polyx Hardwax Oil – Rapid, come in?

There are two types of sheen available, Osmo Polyx Oil Rapid 3232 which is Satin or Osmo Polyx Oil Rapid 3262 which is a Matt. Both are a clear transparent wood finish made from natural oils and waxes. The final finish will offer a stain and water resistant finish.

Does Osmo Polyx Oil Rapid come in a white transparent tint?

Here at Priory Polishes, we have an Osmo tinting machine so we can tint any shade of Osmo oil including the white transparent. We also offer all other colours in the Rapid range including Light Grey, Honey, Amber, Terra, Graphite, Black and many more. We are one of the only UK sellers who can sell the Rapid range in tints and we do ship around the UK on a daily basis.
