    CAN I STAIN MY WOODEN FLOOR FOR A DIFFERENT COLOR?
    Yes, with Osmo Polyx-Oil Tints and Wood Wax Finish. You can apply the finish easily by using a floor brush roller or a brush, and then allow it to work in for a few minutes and wipe away the excess with a cloth, along the wood grain. Allow the floor to dry overnight, ensuring that there is good ventilation and then apply one thin coat of Polyx-Oil to finish.
    HOW SHOULD I PREPARE THE SURFACE OF MY WOOD FLOOR?
    The surface should be sanded along the wood grain and finished with 120 - 150 grit sandpaper. Care should be taken when removing all scratch marks.
    WHAT HAPPENS IF PART OF MY FLOOR IS DAMAGED?
    Unlike many of the traditional polyurethanes, damaged areas on floors treated with Osmo products can be sanded and re-treated with the same products without leaving any visible transitions.
    CDO I NEED TO SAND BETWEEN COATS?
    You should always assess the surface before applying the second coat, as sanding between coats may be necessary.
    IS THERE ANYTHING SPECIAL TO WATCH OUT FOR WHEN TREATING HARDWOOD FLOORS?
    Some hardwoods such as Jatoba and Merabau are dense and have a high content of ingredients, which reduces their capacity to absorb other finishes. Therefore we recommend treating woods such as these with Wood Wax Finish Clear Extra Thin or Osmo Polyx-Oil 2K Pure, which penetrate deeply into the pores of these wood species.
    WHAT HAPPENS IF I APPLY TOO MUCH PRODUCT WHEN TREATING FLOOR?
    If you have applied too much Polyx-Oil, the drying time will be extended considerably, If this happens, provide additional ventilation by opening windows and doors so that the product can dry naturally through oxidation. If damage occurs to the surface as a result, repair the surface as described above.
    WHAT HAPPENS IF I APPLY TOO MUCH PRODUCT WHEN TREATING A FLOOR?
    IF you have applied too little of the product, water spots may appear, the wood may dry out or appear dull. In such cases, please apply another thin coat of Osmo Polyx-Oil.
    CAN I MIX OSMO COLOR TONES WITH EACH OTHER?
    YES, the color tones of the respective product ranges can be mixed in any ratio. Osmo Wood Wax Finishes are mixable allowing for a larger color range.
    HOW LONG DOES THE SURFACE TAKE TO DRY?
    Most Osmo products dry within 8 - 10 hours. The surface dries through oxidation and absorption. Please ensure that there is sufficient ventilation for drying purposes.
    WHEN CAN I WALK ON THE FLOOR AGAIN?
    As a general rule, the floor can be used one day after the final coat is applied. However, you must make sure that the final coat is dry to the touch. The surface will take 14 days to cure completely. As a result, rugs should not be placed on the surface for 2 - 3 weeks.
    DOES THE FLOOR NEED POLISHING ONCE THE TOP COAT OF OSMO POLYX-OIL HAS BEEN APPLIED?
    No, at this stage no further floor treatment is necessary. However, the surface can be buffed with a single disc machine (white pad) once completely dry. If a higher level of gloss is desired, the floor can be treated after one day at the earliest with Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner and then polished.
    HOW DO I MAINTAIN MY FLOOR?
    This all depends on how much it is used. For regular, protective cleaning, we recommend adding Osmo Wash and Care to mop water. Osmo Opti-Set and Spray-Mop have proven to be invaluable tools in maintaining floors. If the floor starts to look dull and lifeless, simply refresh it using Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner. This can be done in small areas, e.g. near doors or on high traffic areas, without needing to refresh the whole floor area as our products do not leave any visible transitions. If the sign of wear and tear are more substantial, the floor should be re-treated with Osmo Polyx-Oil.
    WHY DOES THE FINISH LOOK DIFFERENT ON THE CAN?
    Depending on the wood species they are applied on, finishes can appear differently in color tone. This tone does not have to match the sticker in the can. We recommend applying a small trial application on a similar piece of wood to test for desired results.
    HOW SHOULD THE WOOD SURFACE BE PREPARED BEFORE USING OSMO COLOR?
    The surface must be clean, dry (max. 20% moisture content) and frost-free.
    WHAT DOES WOOD TREATED WITH OSMO PRODUCTS SMELL LIKE?
    After drying, your wood flooring will have a slight smell of wood and natural oils and waxes. As a solvent, we use de-aromatized white spirit, which is less harmful to the health than so-called "Eco" solvents, such as citrus oils. The solvent dissipates 100% after drying and curing.
    DO OSMO PRODUCTS CONTAIN HARMFUL SUBSTANCES?
    Osmo products are based on carefully purified natural oils and waxes, dried surfaces are safe for people, animals and plants (suitable for children's toys as according to EN 71.3 and saliva-resistant and sweat proof as according to DIN 53160).
    NOTE FOR USING POLYX-OILS
    Cloth and material soaked with the liquid product should either be washed aout immediately or stored in an airtight metal container (Danger of self ignition!).
