Osmo POLYX® Hardwax-Oil Rapid is a professional, clear, fast drying finish for all wooden floors (solid wood floors, laminated flooring, oriented strand-board etc.). Can also be used on cork floors and for terracotta and other unglazed tiles. It is also well suited for the treatment of furniture surfaces (i. e. table tops).
The finished surface is extremely tough and hardwearing. It is water-repellent and dirt resistant. The finish is resistant against wine, beer, cola, coffee, tea, fruit juices, milk and water etc. when dry according to DIN 68861 - 1C (German Industrial Norm). Dirt can easily be removed without trace. Renovating, even partially, is easy. Just clean and re-treat worn areas: No sanding, no repair marks, no removal of previous HARDWAX-OIL finish. The wear resistance of floors treated with Osmo HARDWAX-OIL even exceeds that of conventional parquet seals and varnishes.
Osmo POLYX® Hardwax-Oil Rapid is based on natural vegetable oils and waxes. It is micro-porous and does not crack, flake, peel or blister. Therefore it is an ideal treatment even in rooms with high humidity. Application is easy: Only two thin coats no primer!). The short drying time allows both coats within one day. It is of a creamy consistence (thixotropic). The satin-matt sheen can be intensified by slight polishing. Grain and texture of the wood are accentuated. A wooden
floor which has been treated with Osmo HARDWAX-OIL will become more beautiful and valuable with age.
For all interior wooden floors. Also very well suited for cork and OSB (oriented strandboard) floors, terracotta and other unglazed tiles.For dark hardwood floors like Jatoba, Meranti, Wengé, Merbau, etc. use Osmo WOOD WAX FINISH No. 1101 Clear Extra Thin (Trial application recommended). Can also be used to advantage on wooden furniture, table tops etc.
Based on natural vegetable oils and waxes (sunflower-oil, soyabean-oil, thistle-oil, carnauba-wax, candelilla-wax), paraffine, siccatives (drying agents) and additives. Disaromatised white spirit (benzene-free). This product fulfils EU-Regulation (2004/42/EC) according to the VOC limit value of max. 500 g/l (Cat. A/e (2010).
The wood, cork or OSB surface must be clean and dry (maximum moisture content 20 %). Small dents and holes in the wood can be filled with Osmo Woodfiller. Only apply on frost free surface. Clean or lightly sand old micro-porous finishes. Remove old varnishes (with Osmo PAINT REMOVER or by sanding). If required, sand with fine grain before application (grain max. 150), remove dust carefully. For wood tending to attract blue stain in moist surroundings (e.g. pine) a pretreatment (all sides if possible) with biocide-free wax impregnation Osmo WOOD PROTECTOR is recommended.
Apply thinly and evenly along the wood grain with either an Osmo Hand Brush, the Osmo 220mm Floor brush or the Osmo Microfibre Roller, and spread well. Allow for good ventilation whilst drying. Apply a second coat as before. For the renovation of oiled/waxed surfaces, generally only 1 coat is required. This should be applied to a clean and dry surface.
The final surface quality is dependent on the wood's surface structure, we therefore always recommend to test the product on a small sample area before complete application.
For daily maintenance a duster, mop or vacuum cleaner will be sufficient. An electric floor polisher is very useful. Floors treated with Osmo POLYX® Hardwax- Oil Rapid can be cleaned with water (containing Osmo WASH AND CARE). For persistent stains, remove with Osmo LIQUID WAX CLEANER. This will also revive the appearance of the surface.
When the surface becomes a little dull apply a thin coat of Osmo POLYX® Hardwax-Oil Rapid and wipe with cloth or electric floor polisher. Clean floor (as above) prior to re-finishing.
1 l = approx. 12 m², two coats = approx. 20 m², one coat
Cleaning of tools:
With Osmo Brush Cleaner (benzenefree) or white spirit.
At least 4-5 hours - provide good ventilation (Osmo wood finishes dry by oxidation and therefore need air). Dust dry - after approx. 2 hours. For cork surfaces the drying time can be 12 hours or longer.
