Additional Advice:

It may also be used as a priming coat on timber bench tops and vanities, prior to finishing with Top Oil, however, it's use will darken the timber slightly. While the use of Wood Protector is not essential on timbers which do not contain blue mould, it's wax content will help to waterproof the timber's surface and stop watermarking, prior to applying one or two top coats of your chosen Osmo finish.

Only one primer coat of Wood Protector is required, followed by two top coats of the desired Osmo finish.

A trial is always recommended first to determine suitability.
