The Traditional Paint Company Boiled Linseed Oil refers to a combination of raw linseed oil with additives (catalysts to accelerate drying) with traditional linseed oil products.
Linseed oil, also known as flaxseed oil, is a colourless to yellowish oil obtained from the dried, ripened seeds of the flax plant. The oil is obtained by pressing followed by solvent extraction. Linseed oil is a drying oil, meaning it can polymerise into a solid form. Owing to its polymer forming properties, linseed oil can be used on its own or blended with combinations of other oils, resins, or solvents as an impregnator, drying oil finish or varnish in wood finishing, as a pigment binder in oil paints, as a plasticiser and hardener in putty, and in manufacture of linoleum.
