Linseed Oil Emulsion is made primarily of linseed oil and can be mixed to produce a variety of different colours.
The Traditional Paint Company specialise in bringing you only the best in interior and exterior paints. We pride ourselves with only supplying products that we would use ourselves. Linseed Oil Emulsion is an eco-friendly, wood oil, that dries to form a durable, silk, matt finish. It is ideal for use on a variety of wooden surfaces. You can apply this product to a wide range of hardwood and softwood surfaces. This includes exotic woods. Customers can apply this paint on both horizontal or vertical surfaces.
Being solvent-free and based on natural oils means you can use Linseed Oil Emulsion internally as well as externally. We use no harmful ingredients to produce this paint. Therefore, you don’t need to worry about ventilation during the application process, as there is little odour. Because no solvents have been used to manufacture this paint, the drying time is somewhat longer than conventional wooden paints. It will dry primarily via oxidation. The drying conditions should be warm so the process is faster. The coating doesn’t cure well in colder conditions.
Unlike conventional paints that will degrade or crack after approximately 5 years, Linseed Oil Paint has a long-lasting life of over 15 years when used internally and anywhere up to 15 years when used externally. You should be careful when applying Linseed Oil Paint as it is different from conventional paints that get thinner during the drying process. Linseed Oil actually gets thicker so you should ensure you apply the coating quite thinly in order to avoid pools of paint, which are more common on horizontal surfaces.
