The first step is crushing Linseed to Linseedoil. With an iodine value normally between 180 and 190, Linseedoil is one of the best drying vegetable oils with a variety of applications in the coatings industry:
- ● paints and varnishes printing inks ●
● alkyd resins sealants ●
● linoleum pigment pastes ●
● rubber plastics ●
The high content of α-linolenic acid (ALA) makes Linseedoil also the richest vegetable oil in ω3-fatty acids, an essential fatty acid of growing importance and interest in our daily food and feed. ω3-Fatty acids are expected to help prevent several contemporary health problems.
