$19.50
Size

Swedish cold-pressed boiled linseed oil is of the highest quality. The oil is stored for at least 6 months after being pressed so that any slime products may settle. The oil is then heated to 140⁰C for seven days. It is a natural treatment without any chemical additives. The absolutely pure linseed oil is then decanted to another storage tank.

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, boiled linseed oil is used to dilute linseed oil paint outdoors. Boiled linseed oil dries substantially more quickly compared to raw linseed oil.

Applications: Use this organic boiled linseed oil as a base coat before linseed oil paint. Wood Shingles, Wood Siding, Wood Decks, Porches, Wooden Boats, undercoating for cars etc.

Paint Removing: Use to reconstitute old paint prior to heating with the Silent Paint Remover. Softens paint layers and reduces paint dust created by scraping.

This product is not bleached or filtered. Not for food or hygiene applications. Not sensitive to freezing. Organic Raw linseed oil dries significantly slower than organic boiled linseed oil.

About Linseed Oil
MADE IN SWEDEN The Scandanavian people have known about the unique properties of linseed oil for several thousand years. Linseed oil penetrates into wood, protecting it from moisture and rot.

Linseed oil is cold pressed from the seeds of the flax flower. This is done "cold" to prevent impurities getting into the oil.

The raw linseed oil is purified and refined through the addition of oxygen to produce boiled or "cooked" linseed oil. This process eliminates protein and improves aspects such as the drying time, shine and purity. Purified linseed oil is mold and mildew-free.

Uses:

  • Thinning Linseed Oil Paint
  • Maintenance of old Linseed Oil Painted surfaces
  • May be used as a first coat as a primer on extremely dried out wood
  • Add a few ounces of paint to the boiled linseed oil to create a custom stain
  • Purified Boiled Linseed Oil is excellent for long term storage of paint brushes
