As with any home, wear and tear is inevitable through everyday use, and with Summer upon us, now is the perfect opportunity to refresh the wooden surfaces in the home. Osmo UK, the eco-friendly wood and finishes specialist, offers a range of internal finishing products, designed to protect, preserve and enhance wooden flooring, worktops and other joinery.
Focus on: Flooring
Offering all the professional features of a traditional oil-based finish, Polyx-Oil combines the smooth surface of conventional lacquers, and the application ease of a water-based finish. Ideal for solid engineered or laminate wood flooring, Polyx-Oil is a high quality, water-repellent and tread-resistant wood finish that is based on natural ingredients and available in glossy, satin, semi-matt and matt finishes. Unlike ordinary oil finish products which form a film on the wood, the product’s natural components penetrate deeply into the wood to create a micro-porous finish. Containing no biocides or preservatives, Osmo Polyx-Oil meets all relevant environmental and performance standards.
Focus on: Worktops
Made with natural plant oils and waxes, TopOil accentuates the wood’s natural beauty and leaves a flawless water-repellent and resistant finish to wooden worktops. It is almost odourless, contains no biocides or preservatives and will not crack, flake, peel or blister. The finish achieved with Osmo TopOil ensures the worktop is impervious to a wide range of liquids, such as wine, beer and cola.
Focus on: Doors, Furniture and Joinery
Osmo Wood Wax Finish is a satin wood finish that combines all the advantages of oils and waxes, making it resistant to water and dirt and safe for humans, plants and animals. Requiring no primer or sanding between coats, it is quick and easy to apply, saving time and money. The finish can be applied with either a roller, brush or lint-free cloth and requires two or four coats, depending on the application. Available in 186 RAL custom colours and from stock in 15 transparent and 10 intensive colours, Wood Wax Finish is the product to give your interior wood a durable surface that adapts to the demands of life.
Focus on: Correcting Damage
Woodfiller is a multi-purpose, easy to use, fast drying solution which is used to remove scratches and dents in the wood. It also acts as an edge filler, wood putty, crack filler and sanding sealer, eliminating the need for several different products. Available in 14 different colours and designed to be used across a wide range of wood surfaces, there is no reason for inconsistency of colour on the surface. Woodfiller can even be mixed within the range to achieve a custom colour.
Focus on: Cleaning and Maintenance
Liquid Wax Cleaner is designed for occasional intensive maintenance and reconditioning which revitalises, maintains and enhances wooden floors. Specifically developed to take care of stubborn stains on oil and wax treated flooring, simply apply thinly to the floor with a lint-free cloth and polish. This economical product which is odourless and water-repellent is also available as a spray.
For a more regular cleaning regime, Osmo Wash and Care is a highly effective and water-soluble for quick, easy and thorough floor maintenance. Suitable to apply in high traffic areas, this product cleans and freshens the floor at the same time.
