Osmo End Grain Wax is specially developed to seal the end grain of timber. Designed to protect the end grain from weathering, cracking, swelling and shrinkage, Osmo End Grain Wax minimises the amount of water the end grain can absorb.

Protecting from the inside, Osmo End Grain Wax is absorbed into the natural fibres of the timber, blocking the movement of water in to and out of the board. Controlling the moisture in the timber in this way, Osmo End Grain Wax stabilises the board and prevents swelling and shrinkage of the timber in wet and dry conditions.

Application Areas

End Grain of decking, cladding or timber roofing applications of softwood and hardwood species such as Western Red Cedar, Pine, Larch, Douglas Fir, Spruce, Teak, Yellow Balau, Cumaru and Thermowood.

Environment

Natural products

Osmo uses food safe, natural ingredients for the basis of their wood finishes, waxes and pigments, including sunflower, soya, linseed and thistle oil, which is good for customers and wood alike.

Osmo products contain disaromatised white spirit to ensure finishes spread easily, removing the need for so-called "Green solvent" materials which can cause allergies.

Natural beauty of 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 suited 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, micro-porous surface which protects the wood from external influences. The wood remains naturally beautiful, protected and durable.
