A drying oil which makes wood water-repellent, resistant to rot, dimensionally stable and which increases its bending strength.
Available in 0,25, 1 and 5 litre cans, 200 litre drums, 1000 litre IBC containers. Retailers.
PRIMER OIL 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, PRIMER OIL dries in 24 hours or less.

PRIMER OIL makes wood rot resistant by making it waterproof - fungi cannot grow in dry wood, and no organism can extract nourishment from the oil.
Field tests and tests in a rotting chamber show that wood deep impregnated with PRIMER OIL remains free of rot for a minimum of 24 years - in moist soil!
The dimensional stability and the increased bending strength - doubled in our experiments - is a result of the wood forming a natural composite with linoxyn.
Sunlight will make the surface turn grey. The original colour of the wood can easily be restored by rubbing a small quantity of PRIMER OIL into the surface.
