Description
Tung oil is vegetable oil obtained from tung tree with a fatty acid composition of 80% eleostearic acid. Eleostearic acid bears three conjugated double bounds. Therefore, it is oxidized by air at room temperature to give tough and durable films. On the other hand, if baked over 120°C, due to self polymerization, tough and durable films are formed.
