Osmo Polyx-Oil: The Original Hardwax Oil.
Formerly known as Hardwax Oil, Osmo’s flagship product is a high-quality, durable finish for all interior wood. The oil penetrates the pores of the wood, making it resistant to staining, and the wax creates a surface coating which protects against surface abrasion. Easy to apply and maintain, Polyx-Oil leaves a satin-matte finish that resists water and stains, and is safe for pets and children alike. With high coverage and great repairability, Polyx-Oil is a great value. Two coats are reccomended for high traffic areas such as flooring. Derived from natural plant based oils and waxes, Osmo is a great alternative to high-solvent petroleum-based polyurethanes.
