Linseed Varnish Oil

A drying oil for polishing oil treated woods and oil impregnation of pressure impregnated woods. Contains no solvents.

LINSEED VARNISH OIL is our thickest oil, and the quickest drying. It is linseed oil from which the non-drying ingredients have been removed with our unique refining method. It penetrates the substrate and dries quickly by a reaction with the oxygen in the air to linoxyn, a natural polymer with excellent adhesion. It is non-biodegradable, water-repellent and resistant to fats, petroleum products, salts and household acids, e.g. lemon, wine and vinegar.
At 20 °C / 60 °F and with good ventilation, LINSEED VARNISH OIL dries in 6-24 hours.

LINSEED VARNISH OIL forms fine and durable surfaces, especially on wood treated with PRIMER OIL or FURNITURE OIL. First impregnate the wood using either oil. Create the desired surface gloss on the following day - from silk matte to high gloss - by oil-polishing with LINSEED VARNISH OIL. Choose the degree of gloss by using a coarser or finer grinding pad.

Oil impregnate pressure impregnated woods using LINSEED VARNISH OIL rather than PRIMER OIL as the pressure impregnation breaks the cell structure of the wood and makes it so porous that it absorbs practically unlimited quantities of the thinner liquid PRIMER OIL.
