A clear, Hardwax Oil finish for interior wooden floors and furniture as well as timber panelling, ceilings and trim. Also recommended for plywood wall linings etc.

Available in 4 sheen levels: Gloss, Satin, Semi-Matt (Low Sheen) and Matt.

Osmo Polyx®-Oils are a clear, durable, low maintenance, food safe oil and wax combination for interior timber or cork flooring, as well as timber furniture including baby's cots, bassinets and playpens. Also suitable for exposed timber beams, sarking, paneling and timber benchtops. Suitable for a variety of timber types - both hardwood and softwood - such as Pine, Rimu, Kauri, Macrocarpa, Oak, Beech, Eucalyptus, Jarrah and Douglas Fir (Oregon). Polyx®-Oil, once fully cured, will not crack, flake, peel, blister or water mark and is stain resistant against wine, beer, cola, coffee, tea, fruit juices, milk and water.

As durable as polyurethane, and far easier to repair when scratched or worn down.Easy to apply, with 2 thin coats being applied 12 - 24 hours apart. Sanding in between coats is generally not necessary. Application can be by roller or brush, however a brush is Osmo's recommended applicator. Ensure your brush is a new, good quality bristle brush. (Osmo's 220mm floor brush is ideal). If using a roller, make sure the sleeve is micro fibre with a nap of no more than 5mm. Care should be taken to limit the amount of oil held in the roller, otherwise over application can result.

The coverage rate of Polyx®-Oil is exceptional at around 24 square metres per litre. That means a 10 litre can will cover approximately 240 square metres with one coat, or 120 square metres with 2 coats. That equates to a cost of approximately $8.00 per square metre.

Resinous timbers such as Matai, and oily, dense or tropical hardood timbers such as Totara, Kwila, Mahogany, and some Eucalypts such as Spotted Gum and Tallow Wood require a different finishing process. The use of Polyx®-Oil, or any coloured oils on these timbers is not recommended. The following products are recommended:

  • Woodwax Clear Extra Thin as an initial one coat primer, followed by 1 or 2 coats of the faster drying Polyx®-Oil Rapid. Suitable for both professional and DIY use.
  • 2 coats of Polyx Oil Express with added hardener applied direct to the timber. This is a professional use product only

Polyx®-Oil finishes are easy to maintain with any plant based soap such as Osmo's Wash and Care for damp mopping, and Osmo's Liquid Wax Cleaner for buffing the timber when needed.
