osmo polyx oil where to buy

Osmo offers a natural and environmentally friendly alternative to wood finishing. The products are based on rapidly renewable, natural vegetable oils that penetrate deeply into the wood, keeping it elastic and healthy, whilst preventing it from drying and becoming brittle. The wood is allowed to breathe which means it is naturally protected, moisture can evaporate whilst the surface is very water resistant, water tightly beads on the surface which can be simply wiped off – and for exterior wood the rain will evaporate naturally, meaning little or no maintenance is required.

What are the ingredients of Osmo Products?

Osmo products contain natural vegetable oils such as linseed oil, sunflower oil, soybean oil and thistle oil – and the interior range also contain natural vegetable waxes such as carnauba wax and candelilla wax. Although the ingredients vary with each product, there is a full declaration of the ingredients on each product page.

What is a hardwax-oil finish?

Hardwax-oil finishes are engineered using plant oils and waxes, with just enough refined “benzene free” mineral spirits to allow easy application.

Hardwax-oil vs. regular oil finishes vs. lacquers and water-based finishes – which is better?

Most regular oil finishes contain a high ratio of solvent to synthetic resins, and do not contain wax. This means that, although easier to apply, they protect the wood “from within” by filling in pores, and do not create a film on top, rendering them less durable than hardwax-oil finishes. On the other hand, lacquers and water-based finishes “protect from the outside” by forming a thick film on top of the wood. While more durable than oil finishes, over time these will crack, flake, peel, or blister, and must be completely sanded off for renovation.
Hardwax-oils combine the best of both worlds – the finish penetrates the wood and forms a protective film on top that won’t crack or flake, increasing its durability and resistance to scratches and fluids. Osmo works by having the naturally-based oils penetrate into the wood, providing elasticity, while the microporous surface allows it to breathe, letting moisture evaporate as needed.

Are Osmo products natural or “green”?

Yes! Osmo products are based on natural and renewable vegetable oils and have very low-VOC content. Its ingredients include sunflower, soya, linseed, and thistle oils, as well as carnauba and candelilla waxes, while pigments are derived from purified minerals.

Is Osmo easy to use?

Yes! Osmo is easily applied and maintained. It can also be partially renovated where other finishes would require full sanding and removal. Re-application is also simple – no need to sand, just clean and apply.

Are Osmo finishes VOC compliant?

Absolutely – Osmo Canada does not import or retail any finishes which are in-excess of Canada’s VOC laws and despite being well within limits, Osmo is constantly working to lower VOC content even further simply to show commitment to a low solvent future.
