A fast drying wood finish for ongoing care and maintenance of oiled and waxed timber flooring which is lightly worn, and is looking dull and lifeless. Safe for humans, animals and plants when cured. Available in matt, satin, or satin anti-slip finish.
While this is an Osmo product, it is possible to use it over other oil and wax floor finishes, however a trial application is essential to determine suitability.
Maintenance Oil is also a renovation product. It's timely use can prevent major sanding and renovation work. However, if the existing surface is badly scratched or worn, it should be lightly sanded and finished with one of the Osmo Polyx®-Oils, rather than use Maintenance Oil.
Maintenance Oil is especially recommended for high traffic areas such as restaurants and cafes etc.
Maintenance Oil needs to be applied very thinly. It can be be applied using a low nap microfibre roller, double blade scraper or single disc low speed floor polisher with a white pad.
Note: A buffing / polishing machine should not be used on floors finished with Polyx®-Oil matt, as it will buff the finish to a higher sheen level. On floors finished with Polyx®-Oil matt, Osmo recommend using only a microfibre roller to apply the Maintenance Oil.
Coverage is 40-60 square metres per litre with one coat. Drying time is approximately 3-4 hours under normal conditions. Lower temperatures will increase the drying time.
