Swedish Cold Pressed Boiled Linseed Oil
Ottosson Färgmakeri Swedish Cold Pressed Boiled Linseed Oil
Swedish cold-pressed boiled linseed oil of the highest quality. The oil is stored for at least 6 months after being pressed so that any slime products may settle, and then it is heated to approximately 140°C (284°F). It is a natural treatment without any chemical additives. The absolutely pure linseed oil is then decanted to another storage tank.
Applications: Purified Boiled Linseed Oil is a refined, cold-pressed linseed oil, used as a surface finish on unpainted, varnished, or painted wooden surfaces that are clean and dry. The oil is easy to apply with a brush, sponge, or cloth. Raw linseed oil will not dry, but when boiled it will dry and form a protective surface finish. This boiled linseed oil is also used as a binding agent in all Ottosson Linseed Oil Paints.
