Polyx-Oil Effect Natural is the same product that is sold overseas as Polyx Raw (3044). It’s basically Polyx Original 3054 to which a small amount (3%) of white pigment has been added, to offset ambering on light-colored woods. Unlike other tinted or colored Polyx Oils, Natural can be used for both coats - since the pigment load is very low, you can expect the color to be maintained without a second coat of Polyx 3054.
As with other Polyx products, Natural is great as a floor finish and also popular for furniture finishing. Osmo products meet Germany’s exacting standards for safety and have become popular for anything that someone might chew or eat from. Polyx-Oils are made of natural oils (sunflower, soybean and thistle) and waxes (carnauba and candelilla) plus a bit of low-odor, benzene-free solvent. Once dry, the finish is food safe and appropriate for children’s toys.
These environmentally friendly characteristics of Polyx-Oils stem from an approach that also focuses on the finish enhancing wood’s natural beauty, strengthening the wood grain rather than coating it with a plasticky-cover. Polyx-Oils leave the wood micro-porous and breathing, which enables the finish to perform well even in conditions of high humidity. Polyx-Oils offer very robust resistance to water and dirt and whatever liquids you can throw at its surface - coffee, red wine, tea, soda, grape juice, milk, etc.
Use Polyx-Oil Natural for an extremely durable choice especially if you want to preserve the look and feel of natural wood. Apply the first coat to clean, sanded wood. Let it dry for 8 - 10 hours and then apply the second coat. For interior use only. Made in Germany.
