Boiled with industrial dryers, double-boiled linseed oil can be used as an impregnator, pigment binder, plasticiser and hardener.
Raw linseed oil is cooked along with industrial dryers to produce double boiled linseed oil. Heating the oil causes it to polymerize and oxidize, effectively making it thicker and shortening its drying time.
Double Boiled Linseed oil is a drying oil that can polymerize into a solid form. Due to its properties, linseed oil is used on its own or blended with other oils, resins, and solvents as an impregnator and varnish in wood finishing, a pigment binder in oil paints, a plasticizer and hardener in putty and the manufacture of linoleum.
