In preparation, the surface must be absorbent, clean, dry and frost-free. Osmo Stone and Terracotta Oil is ready to use; do not thin. Stir well.
Apply with Osmo Flat Brush, Floor Brush, Oil Finish Applicator Fleece (Hand Pad Holder) or Osmo Microfibre Roller, apply very thinly and spread well. Remove any excess product (pooling or streaking) with a pad or a lint-free cloth. For larger areas, remove excess oil with a rubber scraper and polish with a buffing machine (white pad). Important: the liquid oil must be absorbed into the surface. There must not be any oil left on the surface. Allow to dry for 8-10 hours. Ventilate well while drying. Apply the second coat also very thinly. Again, remove any excess. When renovating already oiled surfaces, normally one coat on a cleaned surface is sufficient.
Oils enhance the natural colour of the substrate (permanent wet effect). Trial application is absolutely essential! The use of Osmo Stone and Terracotta Oil may influence the slip resistance of the original surfaces. White or very light-coloured stone/surface may yellow slightly as result of the oil treatment! The acid sensitivity of the stone (e.g. marble) remains unaffected. Non-absorbent surfaces, such as glass, glazed tiles or ceramic, cannot be treated (impregnated). Substrates sensitive to solvents (e.g. plastics such as Plexiglas) must be protected. A lack of ventilation leads delays in drying.
Using power washers will severely decrease the coverage of the finish and general or multi-purpose cleaners will increase the frequency of maintenance and recoating.
Clean with Osmo Decking Cleaner using Osmo Decking Cleaning Brush. If necessary, intensive clean with Osmo Wood Reviver Power Gel or Osmo Gard Clean.
To recoat, re-apply one coat onto the clean and dry surface when signs of wear become visible.
A trial is always recommended first to determine suitability.
