Osmo Oil Stain is ideal as a colored base coat for all types of wooden floors, including solid wood, plank, strip, OSB, and cork flooring. It can also be used on stairs and furniture surfaces, providing a durable and attractive finish.

  • Stain-resistant, water-repellent, and abrasion-resistant: Osmo Oil Stain provides excellent protection against stains, water damage, and wear, ensuring the longevity of your wooden surfaces.
  • Pleasant to the touch: The finished surface of Osmo Oil Stain feels smooth and pleasant, enhancing the overall tactile experience.
  • Plant ingredient-based formula: Osmo Oil Stain incorporates plant ingredients, resulting in a more even color and a harmonious appearance compared to traditional finishes.
  • Clear top coat required: After applying Osmo Oil Stain as the base coat, it is essential to follow up with a clear top coat using Osmo Polyx®-Oil to provide additional protection and enhance the beauty of the wood.
  • Microporous surface: The microporous nature of Osmo Oil Stain allows the wood to breathe while preventing cracking, peeling, flaking, or blistering.
  • Resistant to various liquids: Osmo Oil Stain exhibits resistance against common liquid spillages such as wine, beer, cola, coffee, tea, fruit juice, milk, and water, ensuring the surface remains free from water spots.
  • Safe for humans, animals, and plants: The dry finish of Osmo Oil Stain is safe for use around humans, animals, and plants. It is resistant to saliva and perspiration according to German DIN 53160 and suitable for children’s toys according to EN 71.3.

To prepare the wood surface for applying Osmo Oil Stain, please follow these steps:

  1. Ensure that the wood surface is clean, dry, and free from frost. The moisture content should not exceed 18%.
  2. Osmo Oil Stain is ready to use and should not be thinned. Before application, stir the product well to ensure an even consistency.
  3. Thoroughly clean any old microporous stains, and remove all traces of old paints and lacquers. When sanding, it is recommended to wear a dust mask for protection. Fill small cracks, larger joints, or holes in the wood using Osmo Wood Filler.
  4. Carefully sand the wood surface, starting with coarse sandpaper and gradually progressing to finer grits. For flooring, use grit P120-150 for final sanding, and for furniture, use grit P220-240. Remove any sanding dust from the surface using a broom or vacuum cleaner before applying the oil.
  5. Keep in mind that the finished surface’s appearance is influenced by various factors, including the condition of the wood. Therefore, it is advisable to perform a trial application, especially on unfamiliar surfaces, to ensure satisfactory results.

Now, let’s move on to the method of application for both transparent and intensive color options:

Transparent color:

  • Use Osmo Floor Brush, Osmo Microfibre Roller, Oil Finish Applicator Fleece (Hand Pad Holder), or Double Blade Scraper to apply the Osmo Oil Stain very thinly and evenly along the wood grain. Rub the stain into the wood using a white pad.
  • For larger areas, it is recommended to use the Osmo Floor-X-center with a white pad to achieve an even color tone.
  • Allow the surface to dry for approximately 12 hours under good ventilation.

Intensive color:

  • If you desire a stronger color, apply the Osmo Oil Stain thinly along the wood grain using Osmo Microfibre Roller or Floor Brush, and spread it well. Note that the oil stain may penetrate quickly, so on thirsty woods, a hand application may appear patchy. It is highly recommended to perform trial applications first.
  • For best results, rub the stain into the wood with a white pad.
  • If there are any brushstrokes, you can remove them within 30 minutes of application using an unused Osmo Microfibre Roller. Ensure proper ventilation during drying.
  • For an even more intensive color, apply a second coat with Osmo Double Blade Scraper, Osmo Microfibre Roller, or Floor Brush, and rub it into the wood with a white pad. Make sure the first coat has fully dried before applying the second coat with a white pad.
  • After thorough drying, a top coat should be applied using a clear Osmo Polyx®-Oil.

For smaller areas like furniture, you can apply Osmo Oil Stain using a lint-free cloth.

Following these guidelines will help you achieve the best results when applying Osmo Oil Stain to your wooden surfaces.
