Osmo is the specialist when it comes to an optimal interplay between wood and coating systems. Considered as high solid products in comparison to conventional coatings, Osmo coating systems are more environmentally friendly due to less solvents being emitted upon application, while providing higher wood surface coverage, and increased longevity and durability of the wood finish.
“Our deep research and development into colour has enabled us to offer a vast range of new colours, creating a tailored experience for each individual.”

New Tinting System: Mix In Stores
The new Osmo Tinting System becomes possible with an automatic paint dispenser to efficiently produce high quality interior and exterior Osmo natural wood finishes from an endless variety of transparent and opaque colours.
Installed in more than 30 stores and counting throughout the UK, the high-performance compact machine utilises the ZeroPurge™ piston pump and AutoDrive™ features, to offer complete colour customisation, which will continue to expand the range of colour year after year, providing an ever-increasing array of vibrant choices.
This on demand custom colour mixing service produces ready-to-use wood coatings for every customer within minutes, reducing customer order waiting times, wasted product stock, and required retail store space.
Interior Product Enhancements
Before the Osmo Tinting System, the most popular hardwax oil, Polyx®-Oil Original, was available in only four clear finishes; glossy, satin, semi-matt, and matt. Now, these four Original finishes can be tinted in eight transparent colours.
So, what’s new? Previously, these eight transparent colours were already available in only a satin finish. The Tinting System means that not only can these colours be mixed in satin, but they can also be mixed in glossy, semi-matt and matt for the first time ever!
Additionally, Polyx®-Oil Rapid, which offers rapid drying times compared to Original, was previously available in only two clear finishes; satin and matt. Now, following suit, Rapid can also be mixed in the eight transparent interior colours with a satin or matt finish. Again, a first for the company and the world. From just two interior products, the range has dramatically grown from 14 standard clear and colour options to an impressive 54 mixable options in a variety of sizes.
Exterior Product Enhancements
Exterior wood finishes are extremely popular this time of year. With that in mind, Osmo has launched four of the most popular exterior wood finishes with the Osmo Tinting System, including the brand-new opaque colours of Country Shades, which boasts a huge 120 colours from the Osmo Elements® colour range, 2000+ RAL colours, 200 BS colours, and additional NCS colours upon request.
Ideal for vertical wooden surfaces, UV-Protection Oil can now be mixed in eight transparent colours in both satin finishes. For exterior wooden decking, Decking Oil can be mixed on demand in 11 transparent colours in a satin finish, while Natural Oil Woodstain which is suitable for all exterior wooden surfaces, has seen a big enhancement and can now be mixed in all its 18 transparent finishes in both a satin and a matt finish.
