- Ensure the surface is absorbent, clean, dry, and frost-free.
- If there are existing sealants, use a suitable tile or stone sealant stripper to completely remove them. Consult the manufacturer of the sealant stripper for guidance on the appropriate products to use.
- Rinse the surface thoroughly after stripping the sealants.
- Allow the surface to dry for at least 7 days in well-ventilated, livable conditions. This drying time is also applicable to newly laid stone or absorbent tiles.
- For concrete slabs, ensure that the slab has completely dried, which may take several weeks depending on its thickness.
- It is highly recommended to perform a trial application before proceeding with the full application of Osmo Concrete Oil.
- Stir the Osmo Concrete Oil well before use.
METHOD OF APPLICATION:
- Use an Osmo Flat Brush, Floor Brush, Oil Finish Applicator Fleece (Hand Pad Holder), or Osmo Microfibre Roller.
- Apply the Osmo Concrete Oil very thinly and spread it well over the surface, working along the grain.
- Remove any excess wet product, such as pooling or streaks, using a pad or a lint-free cloth.
- For larger areas, excess oil can be removed with a rubber scraper and polished using a buffing machine with a white pad.
- It is important to ensure that the liquid oil is absorbed into the surface and that no oil is left on the surface.
- Allow the first coat to dry for 8-10 hours. Ensure good ventilation during the drying process.
- Apply a second coat of Osmo Concrete Oil, again very thinly, and remove any excess.
- When renovating surfaces that are already oiled, typically one coat on a cleaned surface is sufficient.
By following these instructions, you can effectively apply Osmo Concrete Oil to the surface, ensuring proper absorption and a high-quality finish.
