Swedish Cold Pressed Raw Linseed Oil
Ottosson Färgmakeri Swedish Cold Pressed Raw Linseed Oil
Swedish cold-pressed raw 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. It is a natural treatment without any chemical additives. The absolutely pure linseed oil is then decanted to another storage tank.
Raw linseed oil has a lower surface tension than water and therefore penetrates deeper than water into all forms of substrate. This ability renders it unrivalled where protection against wood rot is concerned. In addition to oiling, raw linseed oil is used to dilute linseed oil paint outdoors. It is also used for storing paint brushes. Raw linseed oil dries slowly.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
I understand that this is raw, cold pressed linseed oil, but has it been washed (alkalie or otherwise)?
This product is completely pure and made naturally. Once the flax seeds are pressed, the oil sits in a barrel for a number of months so that any impurities settle to the bottom and it is then drained/filtered. There are no additives or chemicals in this product!
