Protecting Against Shrinkage

AS a natural material, the reaction of wood to its environment has usually prevented the use of wood floors in wet room areas and damp spaces.
However, a wood protector from OSMO UK has been developed to protect and preserve wood floors wherever its location.
Osmo’s Wood Protector is designed to be quick and easy to apply as a coating to wooden surfaces.
Based on natural oils and waxes, it allows the wood to retain its breathability and elasticity while making the flooring resistant to water, it is claimed. Applied by brush or by dipping, it is said to enable the wood to adjust naturally to moisture and to reduce the effects of shrinkage or swelling.
Osmo’s Wood Protector provides a clear basecoat, and is claimed to contain no organic biocides. Once dried, a suitable finish can be applied.
