Osmo Transparent Wood Finish is an extremely versatile wood finish with many possibilities for use on wooden surfaces in outdoor areas.
It is ideal as a primer for softwoods, especially sawn timbers or gray and weathered wood surfaces.

Storage: Up to 5 years and longer if the can is kept dry and closed, if thickened by frost, store at room temperature for 24-36 hours before use.
The wood surface must be clean, dry and frost-free (maximum 20% moisture content).
Clean all gray or weathered wood with Osmo Houtongiger Power Gel if necessary. old paint layers with Osmo Paint Remover gel..
But in any case remove dirt and loose wood fibers . Osmo Clear Wood Finish is ready to brush, not flimsy. Stir well. If possible, apply the first coat on all sides before beginning installation. Thoroughly clean old open-pore paint. Old finishes must be removed. Always wear a dust mask for dust extraction.
The finished result depends on the nature of the wood, so a test layer should always be made.
As a Primer : Apply thinly in the direction of the wood grain with an Osmo Brush or microfibre roller and rub out thoroughly. Let it dry for 10-12 hours with good ventilation. Then finish with Osmo Country Paint, etc.
As a glossy finish: Using Osmo brush or microfibre roller, apply 1x very thinly in the direction of the wood grain to the wood that has been treated with pigmented Osmo finish and has dried well and is well distributed. Important Substrate must be dry! In the case of renovation, 1 layer on the surface is usually sufficient.
Cleaning the tools: With Osmo Brush Cleaner (free of aromatic compound).

Osmo Transparent Wood Finish is clear and therefore offers no protection against UV radiation from the sun (greying). Not suitable for single product applications in areas exposed to weathering (especially terraces). Due to the surface structure, ribbed or roughly sawn wood absorbs significantly more products.
For areas that are highly exposed to weather influences, such as facades, posts, window sills, you have to take into account significantly shorter renovation times.
Horizontally mounted timber should have an angle of at least 15 degrees.
Sharp edges must be rounded (radius > 2 mm). If the graying process has already started, refresh the surface with Osmo Power Gel and treat. Due to its high oil content, Osmo Transparent Wood Finish exhibits a light yellow effect when used on white for treated surfaces.
Note : old or raw wood or wood that has been left untreated often absorbs more oil. With new wood it is best to let it weather for a few weeks. This ensures that the wood is more resistant to rain and moisture influences. After this process you can clean the wood again with the .
It is therefore advisable to order a little more than necessary, so that you can continue to maintain and update the surface annually.
For surfaces that have already been treated with Osmo or with another brand or product, it is best to do a test. With a new layer, 1 layer is usually sufficient.
We therefore recommend using Osmo Natural Stain 900 White as a top coat in such cases. Oils enhance the natural color of wood (permanent wet effect)
