About Osmo UK
From high quality, beautiful decking, to top of the range wood finishes, Osmo is the wood product specialist.
Because the Osmo range is not produced for the mass market, more time can be spent on ensuring all the products are of the best quality.
If you have any questions on the range, all of the Osmo team have an encyclopaedic knowledge of our finishes, so they should be able to answer pretty much anything.
Osmo UK is owned by Steve Grimwood. While working in Germany with Osmo UK’s parent manufacturer, Steve spotted the potential of the Osmo range and realised there was a niche in the UK market – Over 20 years and still going strong.
With everything from the popular Polyx®-Oil, the original Hardwax Oil, to the beautifully constructed flooring and decking, to our garden buildings, screens and fences all produced in Germany – the home of perfection – you can be guaranteed the products will not disappoint.
Osmo UK aims to be as environmentally friendly and ecologically sound as possible and this reflected in the products.
Osmo’s top-selling interior products include Polyx®-Oil, Wood Wax Finish Transparent, Wash and Care and Liquid Wax Cleaner.
The top-selling exterior products include UV Protection Oil Extra, Natural Oil Woodstain and One Coat Only.
NATURAL: HEALTHY LIVING
Good for both humans and wood: The sunflower, soya, linseed and thistle oil, the basis of our wood finishes as well as the waxes and pigments which Osmo uses are classed as food safe.
Disaromatised white spirit ensures that the finishes are easy to spread, this allows us to do without so-called “Green solvent” materials which can cause allergies, e.g. orange oil, as a general rule we also leave out preservatives.
HIGH COVERAGE: EASY SAVINGS
Osmo finishes contain an unusually high amount of pigments and oils, and as such, they have much better coverage than more conventional finishes, they leave a stunning surface finish after just one or two coats, without the need for a primer or base coat.
The result: with just one tin of Osmo you can achieve near to double the square meter coverage of an ordinary finishing system, and in comparison to other paints, which need primers etc.
the time you need to use Osmo is massively reduced, saving you time and money.
ENDURING BEAUTY THANKS TO OILS AND WAXES
Wood is a natural material, the cell structure, similar to our skin, can take on and release moisture, it breathes.
To ensure that this exchange is not prevented we have created finishes especially trimmed to the character of the wood.
Osmo natural wood finishes are based on oils and waxes, the oil penetrates into the wood surface, protecting from deep within.
The waxes form an elastic, microporous surface which protects the wood from external influences. The wood remains naturally beautiful, protected and durable.
Osmo does not supply lacquers, these water-based, film-forming finishing systems, which cause rough feeling raised wood fibres, do not allow the wood to breathe and are prone to cracking and peeling.
Only oils and waxes can give wood what it needs.
QUICK: NO NEED FOR SANDING
Forget about time-consuming, tiring sanding, Osmo natural wood finishes can be easily renovated at any time without the need for sanding.
It may not even be necessary to re-finish the entire surface but simply touch up damaged or faded areas. Once you switch to Osmo, you will never look back.
SOLID WOOD FLOORING – DESIGNED FOR LIFE
Wooden flooring gives a room a whole new character and atmosphere – much more so than any piece of furniture, and is an investment for life which can be enjoyed every day.
Osmo offers a wide range of flooring to meet your individual needs or wishes, from the friendly looking Pine to a more solid Oak, to more extravagant wood species such as Walnut or Tigerwood.
MULTI-PLANK – FOR PRACTICAL PEOPLE
The Osmo Multi-Plank is still through wood.
The difference to solid wood is that it is built up in layers, the visible top layer is made of high-quality Oak, the carrying layer beneath is pure Birch (multiply).
The combination of these layers makes the flooring extremely stable and allows plank of widths of up to 22 cm. The flooring is easy to install and can be used with underfloor heating.
CREATIV-FLOORING – FOR INDIVIDUALS
Emphasise your personal style of living with Osmo Creativ-flooring.
Our flooring can be delivered with various surface structures and colour tones upon request.
Do you find antique flooring attractive? Would you like a white limed surface effect?
Or a more colourful solid Oak floor? Allow your fantasy to run free Osmo.
Should your taste change after a couple of years then you can simply sand and recreate the flooring as per your wishes.
