A drying oil that penetrates the surface structure of clean or corroded metals and prevents oxidation. Contains no solvents.
Available in 1 litre and 5 litre tin canisters, 200 litre drums and 1000 litre IBC containers. Where to buy.
RUSTPROOFING 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, RUSTPROOFING OIL dries in 24 hours or less.

RUSTPROOFING OIL PROVIDES BETTER PROTECTION THAN ORDINARY LINSEED OIL
Linseed oil contains substances that react with water: the waxes from the seed coat which create a gel with water, and non-drying fatty acids, which do not dry but go rancid and emulgate with water. Water usually comes in contact with the metal under films of oil and create further corrosion. Traditionally, attempts to solve this problem include linseed oil burning: heating up the workpiece in a forge or with a welding torch until it’s red hot, and then dipping it in linseed oil, whereupon a small explosion occurs and the workpiece turns black.
We have solved this problem by removing all the substances from the linseed oil except for the oxidizing fatty acids, which we boil. The result is an oil from which no living organsisms can extract nourishment, which does not react with water, which dries completely and which penetrates the microstructure of the surface - it turned out to be impossible to scrape off the dried residue of our oil from polished stainless-steel containers. Only long periods of wetting in strong soft soap will dissolve our dried oil.
Dried RUSTPROOFING OIL is an excellent substrate for painting provided that the residue of oil has been removed from the surface before it has dried.
Clean, non-corroded metal surfaces are effectively protected by painting them with Selder & Co’s linseed-oil paints. They consist of 45% binder with the same composition and properties as RUSTPROOFING OIL. Selder & Co’s linseed-oil paints permanently attach to the oil-treated surface and never peel off. They can be easily maintained every 10-30 years, the time dependent on the amount of UV radiation that dissolve the binder (refined linseed oil).
