Osmo Door Oil is ideal for veneered doors. The unique formulation penetrates the wood surface which remains microporous and whilst the finish will not crack, peel, flake or blister. The surface also becomes healthy and elastic, and the wood's fibres are prevented from becoming dry and brittle over time as well as shrinking and swelling. Application SURFACE PREPARATION Wood surface must be clean, dry and frost-free (moisture content max. 18%). Osmo Door-Oil is ready to use. Do not thin. Shake well before use. For solid doors, clean old microporous stains thoroughly. Old paints,varnishes and lacquers must be completely removed. If renovating veneered doors, always check with the door manufacture that renovation is possible. Always wear a dust mask while sanding. Fill small cracks, larger joints or holes in wood (with Osmo Wood Filler). Sand wood surfaces carefully. Begin with coarse sandpaper – final sanding P120-150 for solid wood doors. Before oiling the surface, remove sanding dust with a soft brush or vacuum cleaner. If possible, please apply the first coat to all sides before installation. METHOD OF APPLICATION With Osmo Flat Brush or Osmo Microfibre Roller, apply thinly and evenly to the clean and dry wood along the wood grain and spread well. If applying the Door-Oil 3033 Raw, remove excess white pigment before allowing the surface to dry. Allow for good ventilation while drying. After drying, apply a second coat – also thinly. NOTE Applying the product too generously and insufficient ventilation lead to delays in drying time. Oils enhance the natural tone of wood (clear Door-Oil 3060 with permanent wetlook-effect). Osmo Door-Oil 3033 Raw counteracts exactly this effect and protects lighter coloured wood almost invisibly. The original look of the wood can be kept – no emphasising of the natural colour of the wood (no wetlook-effect). On dark/reddish wood species, Osmo Door-Oil 3033 Raw can be seen as a faintly white surface. Over application of Osmo Door-Oil 3033 Raw can also result in a faintly white surface. A trial application is recommended. Using general or multi-purpose cleaners will increase the frequency of maintenance and recoating. Allow finish to fully cure before heavy usage. CARE Regular Cleaning: Dust mopping. Damp mopping using Osmo Spray-Cleaner. Occasional Maintenance: For the Intensive cleaning of stubborn scuff marks, and refreshing the sheen on Osmo Door Oil 3060 clear satin, use clear Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner. Avoid using Liquid Wax Cleaner over Osmo Door-Oil 3033 Raw matt as it will appear more shiny. Recoating: Simply re-apply one coat onto the clean and dry surface when slight signs of wear become visible.
