Osmo UK’s fastest drying wood finish

  • 11 Oct 2018

Polyx®-Oil Express from Osmo UK is a premium fast drying wood finish, guaranteed to keep wooden surfaces in top condition.

Taking just one and a half hours to dry in between coats when used with the Osmo UK 6632 Hardener, Polyx®-Oil Express offers flooring contractors, specifiers, DIY enthusiasts and consumers a solution that eliminates long downtime, which still provides all the professional features of a traditional oil-based finish.

Ideal for solid wood and plank wood flooring, blackstrip, OSB and cork floors, as well as furniture, Polyx®-Oil Express is a high quality, water-repellent and dirt-resistant wood finish based on natural ingredients.

Polyx®-Oil Express is available in a clear-satin finish for a subtle, noble shimmer that resembles satin and emphasises the wood grain modestly, and a clear-matt finish for a virtually completely natural look, with light reflections diffused.

Osmo UK Polyx®-Oil Express is also extremely easy to apply; simply mix the hardener into the finish and then apply two coats thinly along the wood grand with a natural bristle brush or microfibre roller. Brush on to the wood surface to achieve deep, long-lasting penetration.

Offering all the professional features of a traditional oil-based finish, Polyx®-Oil combines the smooth surface of conventional lacquers, and the ease of application of a water-based finish, while managing to eliminate the inherent disadvantages of these other types of finish.

Unlike ordinary oil finish products which form a film on the wood, Polyx®-Oil Express’ natural components penetrate deeply into the wood to create a micro-porous finish, allowing the wood to breathe, moisture to evaporate and ensures a flawless finish both upon application and for many years to come.

After treatment, the wood is strengthened from within and retains its elasticity. It becomes water repellent, stain resistant and more hard-wearing, because it meets the wood’s natural demands and does not crack, flake, peel or blister.
