Surface preparation instructions:

  • If required (rough surfaces), sand before application.
    • Note: As a general rule, wear a dust mask during sanding.
    • Fill small cracks, larger joints, or holes in wood with Osmo Wood Filler.
    • Sand wood surfaces carefully.
      • Begin with coarse sandpaper. We recommend a final sanding with 120 - 150 grit sandpaper for flooring and 180 - 240 grit for furniture.
      • Before oiling the surface, remove sanding dust with a broom or vacuum.
  • The wood surface must be clean, dry, and frost-free (moisture content max. 18%).
  • Clean or slightly sand old microporous stains thoroughly. Old paints and lacquers must be completely removed.

Note: The finished surface is influenced by several factors, including the wood‘s natural characteristics. A trial application is always required, especially for unfamiliar surfaces.

Methods of application:

Osmo Polyx®-OilHigh Solid is ready to use. Please do not thin. Stir carefully before use.

  • First coat:
    • Apply thinly and evenly with the wood grain using an Osmo Hand Brush, an Osmo Floor Brush, or an Osmo Floor Roller.
    • Leave to dry for at least eight to ten hours. Ensure good ventilation and room temperatures above 18°C.
  • Second coat:
    • Apply thinly as above. Remove surplus immediately.
      • Alternatively, apply a second coat by scraper and buff the surface with a white pad.
    • Leave to dry at least 8 - 10 hours. Ventilate well.
    • When thoroughly dry, the surface can be buffed or polished with a hand polisher or buffing machine.
    • When renovating or recoating an already oiled surface, one coat applied to the clean and dry surface is usually sufficient.

Note: The finish can alternatively be polished into the floor using a single disc machine and nonabrasive pad.

Cleaning of tools:

  • You can clean working utensils with Osmo Brush Cleaner and Thinner (benzene-free).

Drying time:

  • About eight to ten hours (normal climatic conditions, 23°C, 50% relative humidity)
  • Lower temperatures and/or higher air humidity can increase the drying time. Allow for good ventilation while drying.


  • 1 liter will cover about 260 square feet (24 square meters) with a single coat.
  • Coverage depends significantly on the condition of the wood.
    • All information refers to smooth and planed/sanded surfaces.
    • Other surfaces may lead to differences in coverage.

Additional notes:

  • Oils enhance the natural tone of wood (permanent wet-effect).
  • Applying the product too generously and with insufficient ventilation leads to delays in drying.
  • Caution: Apply maximum of one coat thinly to cabinet interiors and drawers with a cloth.
  • The Osmo Polyx®-Oil High Solid can take considerably longer to dry in cases where the air is humid, the temperature is low, or the product is over-applied.
  • Cork floors will absorb more oil.
  • Remove any surplus immediately and leave to dry for at least 24 hours providing good ventilation after every coat.
  • Wood surfaces treated with Polyx®-Oil High Solid are easy to maintain. Remove coarse dirt with a broom or a vacuum cleaner.
  • 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.
