Osmo TopOil is a special oil and wax combination, used as a treatment on wooden kitchen work top surfaces and general interior joinery.
Osmo TopOil is made on a base of natural plant oils and waxes. The surface will be protected against common household substances such as wine, beer, fizzy drinks, coffee, tea, fruit juices, milk and water in accordance with DIN 68861-1A (German industrial norm). When dry, the finish is safe for humans, animals and plants and is suitable for childrens' toys as per EN 71.3 (European norm) and fast to perspiration and saliva in accordance with DIN 53160 (German industrial norm).
Oils like the TopOil 3058 clear emphasise the natural colour of the wood (wet-look-effect). The TopOil 3068 Natural* counteracts this effect and protects the wood almost invisibly. The original look of the wood can be kept. On dark/reddish wood species the TopOil 3068 Natural can be seen as a faintly white surface. The TopOil 3061 Acacia is slightly pigmented, thus giving the wood a precious-looking character.
The wooden surface must be clean and dry (max. 20% moisture content). Clean or lightly sand old micro-porous stains. Remove old varnishes (use Osmo Paint Remover or sand down).
If necessary sand down the surface using fine sandpaper (grit P120 -150), carefully remove dust. Always wear a dust mask when sanding.
Method of application
Osmo TopOil Is ready to use. Please do not thin. Shake well before use.
Apply thinly with a cloth, following the grain of the wood. Leave to dry overnight for at least 8-10 hours. Allow for good ventilation.
Repeat 2-3 times as described above and allow to dry for 8-10 hours between the applications.
The finished surface is, among other things, influenced by the woods natural characteristics, therefore a trial application is required before finishing.
