Osmo UK, the eco-friendly wood and finishes specialist, has enhanced its TopOil product offering with the introduction of three new finishes; White, Terra and Graphite.
The TopOil product range now features seven colours, including clear matt, satin matt, natural matt and acacia matt. The three new shades allow Osmo UK to provide its customers with a colour option to match all current interior design trends.
– 3037 White, Satin – the wood’s grain and natural characteristics are lightly white tinted transparently.
– 3038 Terra, Satin – the wood’s grain and natural characteristics are lightly tinted transparently, giving a result similar to a dark oak effect.
– 3039 Graphite, Satin – the wood’s grain and natural characteristics are lightly tinted transparently, giving a result similar to a dark grey effect.
An ideal choice to accentuate the natural beauty of wooden surfaces, TopOil consists of natural plant oils and waxes. The finish works by penetrating the surface of the wood to enhance the existing characteristics and grain.
Suitable for all wooden worktops and internal joinery, TopOil has a simple application process. Once the surface is prepared, Osmo UK recommends applying the initial coat of finish with a flat brush to ensure even distribution.
The second coat can be applied using a lint free cloth, which helps to work the finish deep into the grain. Not only does the finish deliver professional results, but TopOil is food safe (EN 1186) and suitable for use on children’s toys (EN 71.3) making it a family-friendly choice without compromising on health and safety.
The water-repellent and resistant finish makes TopOil an ideal choice for the kitchen and bathroom, where water damage and spillages of wine, beer, cola, coffee, tea, fruit juices, milk and water are inevitable. These types of liquid spillages will tightly bead on the surface without leaving any marks, and can be simply cleaned by wiping with a cloth.
