Osmo Wood Protector is a clear wood primer and preservative for interior timbers which are used in wet areas such as laundries and bathrooms. It is also recommended for use as a sealer on timber kitchen benchtops, prior to finishing with Top Oil, however, it's use will darken the timber slightly.
While the use of this product is not essential, it is recommended for wet areas. Wood Protector's wax content will help to seal the timber's surface and stop watermarking, prior to applying one or two top coats of your chosen Osmo finish.
Osmo Wood Protector is also recommended for use on timbers which are susceptible to blue stain and mould - such as Pine, Spruce and Douglas Fir (Oregon) which are being used in areas where moisture and high humidity are present, such as bathrooms, laundries, saunas and on interior timber window frames and sills etc.
Wood Protector is biocide free, and is suitable for use on children's toys and playground equipment. It is based on natural oils and waxes, and is extremely water repellant.
Only one coat is required, followed by one or two coats of Polyx®-Oil or other Osmo finish.
