For timbers which are oily by nature, such as some species of Eucalypt, Kwila/Merbau and Rosewood etc, it is recommended that the timber's surface be wiped over with a solvent to remove any oil present, before applying Polyx Oil. A suitable solvent would be Osmo's Brush Cleaner and Thinner.

Coats should be applied 12 - 24 hours apart. The preferred method of application is by good quality bristle brush. Osmo's floor brush applicators are ideal. A low nap microfibre roller may also be used. Please read the data sheet for details. Liquid Wax Cleaner is recommended for buffing and rejuvenating the timber when needed.

A trial is always recommended first to determine suitability.
