The polymerisation of Raw or Refined Linseedoil at moderate temperatures under controlled oxidation combined with an incorporation of catalysts (metal dryers or ‘siccatives’) leads to a variety of Boiled Linseedoils. Oxygen is chemically incorporated in the oil, resulting in an oil with increased reactivity towards pigments and a greatly improved and standardised drying time (12 to 24 h).

The main application of this oil is in timber treatment and wood preservation. You may also want to use Boiled Linseedoil directly on steel (anti-corrosion), as waterproofer (concrete and terracotta), in paints (primers) and in putty and sealants.
