The binding agent in Allbäck linseed oil paint is "boiled"
(oxidized) linseed oil from Skåne, the southernmost province
of Sweden. It is very low emitting and completely free from harmful
additives and solvents. The pigments used in the white paint are
zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Other shades are made from natural
metal oxides and earth colors. All color shades can be blended with
one another to create an infinite array of colors.
|This displays the amazing penetration
power of the Allback Linseed Oil Paint. Paint will penetrate the
wood surface and give it great resistance to water and subsequently
Linseed oil paint can be used both outdoors and indoors, on timbers
and metal. It ages visibly, fading naturally over time. After some
time, the paint will become chalky as the pigment begins to be released.
Brushing the surface and applying a coat of Maintenance
Linseed Oil Wax or Raw Linseed
Oil as a last coat helps the surface regain it's former luster
and function, simply and inexpensively.
Linseed Oil Paint can also be mixed
to an emulsion and applied to most types of plaster, brick or stone
walls (internally or externally) or cement floors, but not on lime
plaster. For any wooden surfaces use undiluted Linseed Oil Paint. Emulsion
should not be used on any woodwork. Please check and read instruction
sheet thoroughly before undertaking.

a "gray-oil" paint.

oil if you desire a more glossy surface.
- The paint will have an even, matte surface without shiny patches
on all surfaces. The paint's penetration ability has been minimized.
- The paint dries as water evaporates and the linseed oil oxidizes.
The drying time is about 24 hours depending on the thickness of
the paint, ventilation, temperature etc. When the paints are drying
there may be a slight smell of linseed oil. There is a lot of
oil and water that has to oxidize and evaporate. Make sure you
have good ventilation!
Why is Allback Linseed Oil Paint Superior?
uses a unique but not new technique to clean and then sterilize
the linseed oil in Allback
In the jar is cold, pressed linseed oil directly from the press.
As you can see the linseed oil contains a white substance. This
is protein that will cause a variety of problems from mildew and
rot. Most if not all paint manufacturers leave protein in the oil
and add massive amounts of chemicals in order to keep the paint
from rotting. In the bottle you see cleaned and sterilized linseed
oil. What oil would you prefer to have in your paint?
