Trouble shooting & FAQ: Contractor Grade Swedish Linseed Oil Paint

Crackle Finish. If the surface is saturated with organic raw linseed oil and it is not completely absorbed into the wood grain before applying the top coats, you can end up with a crackled surface within a year of application. The rule of ”No lean on fat” apply with this linseed oil paint. Remedy: Clean the surface well with the linseed oil soap and let surface completely dry. Apply the top coats of the linseed oil paint.

The wood grain shows through the linseed oil paint. This linseed oil paint should be applied with three top coats after one coat of a primer coat. Add 20% boiled linseed oil to this linseed oil paint as a primer coat. Make sure the surface is completely dry. Remedy: Add enough coats of linseed oil paint to cover the wood grain or the surface in general.

Linseed oil paint is not drying. This linseed oil paint will take 1-2 days to dry in 60 degree temperature. Colder temperature will slow drying. Remedy: Make sure each linseed oil paint coat is dry before each coat.

Maintenance. This linseed oil paint should normally only be cleaned until the substrate needs more pigment. It can take 5-12 years before a new coat of paint is needed depending on location. Maintenance cleaning: Use a natural PH neutral soap for cleaning. A good quality organic dish soap should work well. Only in rare occasions you need to use a harsher linseed oil soap to remove any contaminants from the surface. Remedy: Use a natural dish soap for cleaning. Use a linseed oil soap for heavy dirt, mildew and carbon build up.

Linseed oil paint beads on the surface when applying. If the surface has become contaminated from something in the project environment, the linseed oil paint can have adhesion issues. The organic raw linseed oil needs to be completely absorbed into the substrate before applying the linseed oil paint. Silicone in tack cloth, painters cups containing BPA, dust spray or other chemicals can cause adhesion issues. Surface that is not dry may cause adhesion problems Remedy: Clean the surface with the linseed oil soap. Let the surface completely dry and apply a coat of the linseed oil paint. Discard brushes, plastic cups etc that had been used for the project to avoid re contamination. Avoid Japan drier, chlorine and TSP when using linseed oil paint as it can cause adhesion issues over time.

Why use zinc in linseed oil paint? Zinc is widely used in consumer products and was also traditionally used in paint for decades. Zinc works as an inorganic herbicide and will reduce the chance of mildew. The linseed oil paint also dries to a harder surface making it less of a chance of dirt build up. Remedy: Never flush oil linseed oil paint down the zinc as it is hard for a water treatment facility to remove it from water. Always use every drop of the linseed oil paint. Never discard linseed oil paint. Any zinc is sequestered in the linseed oil paint and very small amounts are actually released into the environment.

Why using paraffin in the Linseed oil paint? Paraffin is is also widely used in North America for consumer products. It is an important component for the linseed oil paint for the drying process to form a durable surface. Remedy: Never flush oil linseed oil paint down the sink as it is hard for a water treatment facility to remove it from water. Always use every drop of the linseed oil paint. Never discard linseed oil paint. As the paraffin used in this linseed oil paint is less than 3%, a very small amount is released into the environment. In comparison to other types of coatings sold in North America, this linseed oil paint has an extremely low carbon foot print. Some water based acrylic coatings have a huge amount of chemicals suspended in water. This is a greater and safer alternative.
