Osmo WR Basecoat is a clear, ready to use wood protection base coat for exterior wood that prevents swelling and shrinking. It contains active ingredients which according to latest research protect against wood rotting (EN 113) and wood staining fungi such as blue stain, as well as against wood destroying insects (EN 46). Penetrating the wood easily, it is moisture regulating and provides an adhesive surface for subsequent treatment with finishing with further treatments such as Osmo Country Colour. It has a faint odour during the application but is odourless after drying. Suitable for out exterior windows, doors, shutters, fences and sheds.

Preparation and Application of Osmo Country Colour

For best results, we recommend that your wood surface is clean, dry and frost-free (moisture content max. 20%). Osmo WR Base Coat is ready to use so there is no need to thin, simply stir well with a flat stirring brush or spatula. We recommend that any previous paint or lacquer is removed before application.

For ease of application, we recommend that you use the Osmo Flat Brush or Microfibre Roller, spreading out thinly and evenly along wood grain. Apply evenly for 2-3 coats depending on the condition of the wood.
