PAINT ECO Cold-Pressed Linseed Oil is extracted using cold pressing technology. Linseed oil soaks into the wood, highlighting its structure. Protects from moisture. The product needs preparation before use: heat-up in a water bath.
Application of Cold-Pressed Linseed Oil
Indoors and outdoors. For uncoated surfaces as well as for previously oiled surfaces. Outdoors – as a primer for wood, concrete, plaster, etc. Can also be used for diluting boiled linseed oil stains and paints. Widely used in restoration projects.
5-6 days at average temperature of +20 (± 2) ̊C. Low temperature, high humidity and wood moisture content can result in extended drying time.
Preparation of the surface:
– surface must be dry and clean, free from dust and with no rosin residue
– moisture content of wood cannot exceed 18%
– product can be used only if the surface has been cleaned of previous coat(s) of chemical coating
– it is recommended to use the product in average temperatures between +10 ̊C. – +25 ̊C. Do not use on a sun heated surface
– for outdoor use, prior to product application, in order to avoid or eliminate fungal infections of wood, it is recommended to apply water-based antiseptic in corresponding colour.
1 liter in a single coat covers
– rough sawn timber ~5-8 m2
– planed timber ~8-12 m2
– hardwood ~30-36 m2
