Carbolin boiled linseed oil is linseed oil blended with driers, improving drying times. Linseed oil comes from ripened and dried ‘flax plant’ seeds and has been in use for centuries. Boiled linseed oil penetrates unsealed wood, leaving a natural, water resistant, protective finish. The colour darkens slightly with age.
Use Carbolin boiled linseed oil for oiling many types of bare wood. Boiled linseed is suitable for many wood types, but is not suitable for oak furniture or flooring. Primarily for internal use and wood care applications. It also functions as a traditional treatment to seal terracotta tiles and other porous substrates.
Often mixed with burnt sand to form a caulking to fill gaps between timber and masonry.
