Description
Type of vegetable oil obtained from linseed and used in organic coatings for almost a thousand years. Linseed oil contains 52% tri-unsaturated linoleic acid, 16% di-unsaturated lionleic acid and 22% mono-unsaturated oleic acid in its structure. Because linseed oil is a drying oil, it is directly used as paint binder, as well as in drying alkyd resin production.
