The Osmo Oil Stain 3564 was previously known as Tabac but is now called Tobacco. It must be applied on clean, dry wood surfaces. It does not need to be diluted and requires good ventilation. To avoid an off-white finish, it is necessary to apply a final coat of Osmo Polyx(r) Oil Raw.

However, it is important to consult with the manufacturer for its recommended compatibility advice. Also, some Osmo exterior ranges may require that the timber weathers before they can be used.
Osmo Oil Stain is available in a clear matt finish and various coloured satin finishes. While a clear finish does not provide UV protection, coloured finishes do.
Maintenance of Osmo oil stain

Because it uses plant ingredients, it is safe for plants and animals. It can be used on a variety of surfaces, including wood, non-glazed natural ceramic tile, and strip parquet.

To maintain Osmo Oil, apply a coat after a few days. However, be careful not to use household cleaning solutions and multi-purpose cleaners as they can discolour or stain the product.
