Contractor Grade Swedish Linseed Oil Paint. What to Expect.


All external surfaces are affected by the environment, global climate change, pollution and general acidification.

Linseed oil paint is not exempt from problems with dirt, mildew or algae.

The linseed oil products are free from solvents and free from environmentally harmful toxins as much as possible.

Customers must take the responsibility for all appropriate surfaces preparation and maintenance cleaning. If necessary, clean the surface with a natural PH neutral dish soap. If the surface is very dirty, use the linseed oil soap or linseed oil soap flakes.

Linseed oil paint will NOT create a barrier on the surface that will block mildew spores from within the wood. Anything inside the wood grain that wants to come to the top of the surface will come right through the paint.

The large amount of organic matter circulating in the exterior air can often settle on the linseed oil paint surface and may feed mold. Cleaning is a natural process of maintenance.

We are handling a 97% natural coating that is safe to work with and is easy to maintain. Free of petrochemical acrylics and solvents.

The main goal with a 97% petrochemical free coating is to preserve wood and metal for a long time without the adverse effects from petrochemicals acrylic oils. If applied on a dry and clean surface, there is a very slim chance of cracking or peeling. Linseed oil paint will strengthen the entire thickness of the wood over time. You are nourishing the entire thickness of the wood with the linseed oil and not just the surface. No wood decay if maintained regularly with purified organic linseed oil.

Always clean the surface well before applying the linseed oil paint using the linseed oil soap. Light dirt can be cleaned with a natural dish soap.

Avoid using chlorine and or TSP for cleaning as this aids in promoting mildew and will guarantee that the surface needs to be cleaned regularly. Using the linseed oil soap flakes is gentler than linseed oil soap on linseed oil painted surfaces.

What You Didn't Know About Paint Made from Flax Oil


Should you really use a natural oil on the walls?

Yes, you should. After reading this you will understand why you should use natural oil grown in a field instead of a chemical created in laboratory on the walls or the roof.

Using natural binders like linseed oil has many advantages. You reduce the consumption of environmentally hazardous solvents, biocides and other additives for example. Linseed oil, extracted from flax seed, is one of the most useful natural oils. It is used as a preservative for wood as well as an ingredient in paints, varnishes, and stains. What is left after the oil has been pressed out of the flax seeds are used to make pellets for animal feed and also use to boost Omega 3 in eggs and meat widely sold in the USA.

Organic paint made with natural ingredients and a very small amount of paraffin look and feel very natural. The flax oil-based paint gives a special glow to the wall in a way that modern paint cannot.

 

A Little Bit of History


The use of flax is nothing new. It’s been used as food and clothing for over 9000 years. The oldest pictures of flax cultivation were found in Egyptian graves from 2400-2100 B.C. To use Linn-seed (flax) to protect wood and to paint houses has been done for the last 300 years in Scandinavia. Before the 15th Century only churches and similar exclusive buildings were painted in Sweden. The paint used was distemper, lime wash and sometimes tar. The pigments available were earth pigments, such as iron dioxide and other minerals. These were the only available pigments until the middle of the 17th century and have traditionally been used in Scandinavian countries.

 

What is In The Paint?


Modern paints are far more complex chemically and physically than early paints. More ingredients have been added to the original concept of a simple three-part system of pigment, binder, and bulk. We make it simple by going back to the old material.

Oil: The oil in the paint penetrates the surface of the wood and the pores and cavities in the wood are filled with oil. There is no room for water and this prevents the wood from decay. Simultaneously, the water-repellant property of the oil works on the same principle as water on a ducks back. The wood is kept dryer and fungi growth is greatly reduced.

Pigment: It is the pigments that give the paint its color and ability to cover. Common pigments in oil based paint are titanium dioxide, zinc oxides, dolomite, chalk and talcum. Other common pigments used to color the paints are industrially made iron oxides and earth pigments like sienna, Ochre’s and Umbers. You can find the earth pigments where they occur naturally as decomposed soil.

Almost all these pigments can be used without risk to the environment or your health.

Emulsion paint is a stronger version of distemper. When linseed oil is mixed with water – then you get emulsion paint. The principle is when fatty acids are mixed evenly into water; you get an emulsion – like milk.

To differentiate emulsion paint from latex and acrylic paint, the emulsion paint should build a permeable, breathing coat. The percentage of oil in the mix must be perfectly matched to make the paint suitable for interior and exterior walls. By adding 20% clean water to the linseed oil paint, mixing with a high speed mixer will create an excellent cleanable surface for stone, concrete and also for wood in kitchens and bathrooms.

 

Why Use Natural Paint?


In Sweden and we have a large amount of timber houses which needs to be protected. That’s why we have plenty of experience in paint. Many houses are more than 150-200 years old. The old houses were at first painted with linseed oil containing white lead. Since lead isn’t particularly good for your health, it was later exchanged for zinc oxide.

The houses painted with linseed oil seldom had to change a single wood board because of decay.

The linseed oil in the paint gradually oxidizes with the oxygen in the air.

Over the years it becomes ‘chalky’, it fades and become even more beautiful and it is still protecting the wood.

 

What Does Swedish Linseed Oil Paint Do?


We have created a unique, modern, high quality paint based on traditional recipes.

One important thing to remember is that all surfaces aren’t alike.

  • The south side is exposed to more sun than the north side.
  • The north side is more exposed to fungi attacks.
  • Threes growing near a house increases the risk of growth of fungi.
  • Even the location of the house matters, for example, whether a house is on the coast or not.

Our paint has been developed over several years to be able to resist the Scandinavian weather - hot summers, cold winters. Our paints have high dry content which means that the paint will cost less in maintenance.
