Materials and tools


To bring out your individual style and taste professionally, wooden floor can be colour-coated with Öl-Beize. This coating comes in a wide colour spectrum - from classic brown colours to trendy greys.

Thanks to its plant-based ingredients, Öl-Beize produces a harmonious and seamless colour without visible transitions. The oil penetrates especially deeply into the wood, thus enabling an optimal staining.

Öl-Beize is easy to apply and economical: 1 litre covers up to 48 m².

Osmo Öl-Beize for your solid wood flooring in the living room: simple application and individual staining for a new look


The classic among Osmo coating systems, Hartwachs-Öl Original, protects the colour pigments in the staining against abrasion so that the flooring stays in perfect shape. 

This wood coating is based on natural oils and waxes and provides a low-maintenance surface that supports a healthy home. The oil penetrates the wood protecting it from the inside, while the wax forms a durable, elastic and abrasion-resistant protection on the wood surface. With this treatment, wood can absorb and release moisture, and the coating will not crack, flake or peel.

After the final treatment with Hartwachs-Öl Original, the wooden floor is hard-wearing, water and dirt repellent and extremely durable.

Osmo Hartwachs-Öl Original protects the colour pigment against wear and abrasion.


Osmo tools are optimally suited to oil and wax-based coating systems and facilitate renovation projects greatly. Larger machines like Osmo FloorXcenter can be hired at a specialist merchant.
