It seals the sports goods surface to prevent any moisture getting into or out. Excellent for conditioning new and revitalising old sport equipment.view more
Boiled Linseed Oil is a great protectant for wood both indoors and outdoors. It beautifies any wood and, once cured, protects the wood from sun and water damage. It can really reinvigorate old dried out wood and bring it back to a healthy status. Boiled Linseed Oil has deep penetrating abilities. After application, the wood fibres draw the oil deep inside which protects not just the surface, but the whole piece of wood.
Linseed oil protects metal from oxidation. Apply a thin coat to non-moving parts and once dry, it will protect and beautify the surface. Thick coats can get gummy so avoid using it in moving parts which get stuck together. Mainly used on chisels, screwdrivers, heirloom tools, block planes, and more specifically cast iron tops like the table saw, mortiser, and band saw.In humid conditions, linseed oil has a tendency to mildew. It is advised to test the product in small patches before.
Linseed Oil is one of the most popular wood finishes in the world. Like other hand-rubbed oil finishes, linseed oil saturates deep into the wood grain to protect against scratches and changes in humidity. It is easy to care for, eco-friendly, and produces a satin finish that really brings out the colour and grain of the wood underneath. Unlike its other counterparts in the market, linseed oil penetrates deep inside the wood and protects rather than forming a layer on the surface.view more
Boiled linseed oil is best suited for touching up and refinishing furniture given its quick drying time (under 24 hours). It provides a lustrous finish to any wood project.It seals and preserves wood and provides a protective barrier. It is also relatively inexpensive.
Steps to be followed to touch up/refinishing furniture:
- Remove the furniture’s old finish
- Use a natural bristle paint brush to spread the oil over the entire surface of the wood
- Allow the oil to soak into the wood for approximately half an hour (more if it humid outside)
- Using a clean cotton cloth, take off the oil that did not soak into the wood
- Wait at least a day for the oil to completely dry
- Continue applying several layers
- leaving a day of dry time in between each one
- Finish the process by applying wood furniture wax over the top layer
- Buff to a shine
Raw Linseed Oil has been often replaced by synthetic alkyd resins (lacquer, polyurethane, and varnish) for the past several decades, however its coming back in the limelight, thanks to its non-toxicity and its environmentally friendly characteristics, making it ideal to be used over edible surfaces and on children's wooden toys.view more
