Osmo UK - floor finishes, sealants and varnishes

OSMO UK, which describes itself as the eco-friendly wood and finishes experts, offers Polyx-Oil Tints Raw, a lightly tinted protective finish that is said by the company to provide an original, untreated appearance for wooden floors.

Said by Osmo to be desired by many homeowners, this finish creates a reportedly sought-after look, but also protects the wood’s surface.

‘Based on the original Polyx-Oil product, it retains the natural beauty and character of the wood in a perfect way,’ says Osmo. ‘Easy to use and apply, Polyx-Oil Tints Raw is the ideal product for customers who wish to retain the wood’s original look.

‘By accentuating the natural colour and grain of the wood, the surface appears as near to natural as possible. The floor remains microporous and can be touched up to cover any abrasions without a problem.’
Osmo advises contractors to ‘simply apply two coats of Polyx-Oil Tints Raw and your new, improved and unique flooring is ready to show off. If any abrasions appear, the finish is easy to touch up and leaves no visible marks’.

Finishing your floors with Polyx-Oil is said by the company to create a durable and water and dirt resistant surface. ‘The natural renewable ingredients in this product guarantee an even colour spreading and an overall pleasing finish,’ says the company.

Osmo says that the key advantages to the product include:

  • Nearly invisible appearance, no 'permanent wet effect'
  • Light coloured wood stays light coloured
  • Extremely durable and hardwearing
  • Very water and dirt resistant
  • Resistant to common liquid spillages such as water, juice, tea, cola and wine
  • Saliva-resistant and sweatproof, suitable for children's toys
  • Microporous, breathable finish which does not crack, peel or flake
  • No sanding necessary for spot repairs or future applications

‘Osmo is renowned for its wood treatments that combine product performance and natural, environmentally friendly ingredients,’ says the company. ‘We operate a policy of supplying only products that are eco-friendly during production as well as in application.

‘Polyx-Oil is no exception, as it meets the requirements of EN 71.3 and DIN 53160, by being safe for humans, animals and even on children’s toys. Polyx-Oil’s reduced solvent content mean it’s much healthier for those suffering from asthma and other breathing problems, compared to other oil or wax finishes.’

Polyx-Oil is made up of purified, natural plant oils and waxes and contains no biocides or preservatives, says Osmo, adding that it’s this organic base that makes Polyx-Oil such a premium product.
