Osmo Polyx Oil Raw Effect

Osmo Polyx Oil Raw Effect: untreated wood in its original form has a light, pale character from its natural 'raw' appearance. Sanded wood also has the same effect. Osmo Polyx-Oil 3044 Raw is designed to retain this appearance by using a small amount of white pigments to neutralise the permanent 'wet-look' that develops after application of a clear finish.

Osmo Polyx Oil Raw Effect: untreated wood in its original form has a light, pale character from its natural 'raw' appearance. Sanded wood also has the same effect. Osmo Polyx-Oil 3044 Raw is designed to retain this appearance by using a small amount of white pigments to neutralise the permanent 'wet-look' that develops after application of a clear finish.

Transparent coloured, satin wood finish that uniquely combines the advantages of natural oils and waxes in one product. Osmo Polyx-Oil Effect Raw is resistant to dirt, water and abrasion and smoothens the surface.
In  comparison  to  conventional  finishes,  the  use  of  plant ingredients creates a more evenly coloured and more harmonious appearance. Simple application without primer or intermediate sanding – this saves time and money.
Suitable  for  wood;  water-repellent  surface  does  not  crack,  peel,  flake  or  blister.  Resistant  to  wine,  beer,  cola, coffee, tea, fruit juice, milk and water according to DIN 68861-1A – no water spots. When dry, finish is safe for humans, animals and plants and is suitable for children‘s  toys  as  per  EN  71.3  (European  norm)  and  is  saliva-resistant  and  sweatproof  according  to  DIN  53160 (German industrial norm).

Osmo  Polyx-Oil  Effect  Raw  is  suitable  for  the  protection  and  nearly  invisible  finish  of  all  light-coloured  interior woods, such as wooden floors and furniture.

Based on natural plant oils and waxes (sunflower oil, soya oil, thistle oil, carnauba wax and candelilla wax), paraffin,  titanium  dioxide  white  pigment,  siccatives  (drying  agents)  and  water-repellent  additives. Dearomatized  white  spirit  (benzene-free).  This  product  fulfils  EU  regulations  (2004/42/EC)  according  to  the  VOC content of max. 500 g/l (Cat. A/i (2010)).

Up to 5 years and longer if can is kept dry and closed tightly.  If  thickened  by  frost,  store  for  24-36  hours  at  room temperature before use.

Wood surface must be clean, dry and frost-free (moisture content max. 18%).
Osmo Polyx-Oil Effect Raw is ready to use, please do not thin. Stir well before use.
Clean  old  microporous  stains  thoroughly.  Old  paints  and lacquers must be completely removed. As a general rule, wear a dust mask during sanding works. Fill small cracks, larger joints or holes in wood (with Osmo Wood Filler). Sand  wood  surfaces  carefully.  Begin  with  coarse  sandpaper – final sanding work for flooring P120-150, for  furniture  P180-240.  Before  oiling  the  surface,  remove sanding dust with a broom or vacuum.
The finished surface is, among other things, influenced by the wood‘s natural characteristics. Therefore, a trial application is always required, especially for unfamiliar surfaces.

Apply  thinly  and  evenly  to  the  clean  and  dry  wood  along the wood grain with Osmo Natural Bristle Brush, Osmo Microfibre Roller or Osmo Floor Brush 150 mm, and spread well. Allow to dry for approx. 24 hours with good ventilation.
After drying, quickly apply a second coat also thinly.
When  renovating  an  already  oiled  surface,  one  coat  applied  to  the  clean  and  dry  surface  is  usually  sufficient.

With  Osmo  Brush  Cleaner  (free  of  aromatic  compounds).

Approx.  24  hours  (normal  climatic  conditions,  23°C/50% rel.  humidity).  Lower  temperatures  and/or  higher air humidity can increase the drying time. Allow for good ventilation while drying. After 2-3 weeks, surface is completely hardened.


  • Polyx-Oil  Effect  Raw  protects  wood  nearly  invisibly.  
  • Applying  the  product  too  generously  and  insufficient  ventilation lead to delays in drying time and the typical smell of oil.
  • Any brushstrokes can be removed with an unused dry Microfibre Roller within 30 minutes after applying.
  • The natural colour tone of wood is preserved – it does not enhance the tone of wood, no permanent wet effect.
  • On dark/reddish wood species, Polyx-Oil Effect Raw is  visible  as  slightly  white  chalky  surface.  A  trial  application  is  recommended.  For  extractive-rich  hardwoods (e.g. Wenge, Merbau, Jatoba etc.), we recommend using Osmo Wood Wax Finish Clear Extra Thin. A trial application is recommended.
  • Caution:  Apply  max.  one  coat  thinly  to  cabinet  interiors and drawers with a cloth.

Keep out of the reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes, skin or clothes. Contains 2-butanonoxime. May produce  an  allergic  reaction.  If  medical  advice  is  necessary please show the container or label. Use only
outside or in well ventilated areas.

Caution:  Wash  out  any  cloth  impregnated  with  this  product  immediately  or  store  in  an  airtight  container  (Danger  of  self-ignition).  The  dried  finish  is  classified  as B2 (normal flammability) according to DIN 4102 regulations.
