For years people have looked for a wood counter top finish that balanced durability, repairability, and maintenance. Film finishes do not offer the ability to repair a work top surface without professional help. This makes polyurethane and varnishes incompatible with counter tops. Oil finishes give the ability to repair but do not hold up over time without continuous application.
Hard Wax Oil Finishes from Osmo combine a highly durable finish, that can be repaired by the home owner. Maintenance is minimal and continuous oiling is not necessary. In fact cleaning with Osmo products like Wash and Care and Liquid Wax Cleaner aide in continuously rejuvenating the finish. Making re-oiling a rare occurrence.
