Differences between Boiled Linseed Oil & Cold-pressed Linseed Oil

Boiled Linseed Oil


Authentic WOODCARE.GUIDE Boiled Linseed Oil is additive and solvent-free. Suitable for protecting new and old wood surfaces and making Swedish red paint, and other paints and wood preservatives. Due to boiling, linseed oil dries faster than cold-pressed linseed oil. Boiled linseed oil forms a hard and clear film on the surface whereas cold-pressed linseed oil absorbs into the wood. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

Cold-pressed Linseed Oil


WOODCARE.GUIDE Cold-pressed Linseed Oil is a genuine linseed oil that is organic and absorbs well into the wood. Suitable for log walls, panels, surfaces, furniture, toys, and for tools used with foodstuffs, such as cutting boards. Linseed oil is obtained from flax seeds by mechanical pressing or chemical extraction. Can be used as a surface treatment agent and color binder. Suitable for indoor use.
