GOOD PROCESSING

  • Oil-based wood finishes that work without primer
  • A thin application of the material is sufficient and provides a very high spread rate
  • Outstanding coverage due to a high content of solids
  • No traces of brushstrokes thanks to a long working time
  • Also on larger areas finishing is seamlessly possible
  • No need to thin

THE ADVANTAGES OF MICROPORES

  • Oils fill pores of wood and protect it from damaging water logging although they do not form a waterproof film. The wood remains microporous and continues to absorb and release water without damage.
  • Microporous wood can breathe, provides better air quality and is anti-static (attracts less dust) and ideal for allergy sufferers

NATURAL INGREDIENTS

  • All Osmo wood finishes are based on oils and waxes: sunflower oil, carnauba wax and candelila wax, linseed, soya and thistle oils.
  • Oils help to retain the value of the natural raw wood material.
  • For a natural, environmentally friendly and safe coating.
  • Pigments are food-safe
  • The binding agents in Osmo Wood finishes penetrate the wood deeply and protect it from deep within
