The environmentally and finisher friendly Botanical Polymerized Tung Oils were crafted using our proprietary, all botanical, citrus solvent, DiCitrusol™, with no petroleum solvents included. The same polymerization process is still utilized in this formulation.
Polymerized Tung Oil undergoes further processing whereby heat and UV additives are incorporated to encourage polymerization and allow quicker initial drying. Botanical Polymerized Tung Oil also incorporates DiCitrusol™, a citrus solvent derived from orange peels, which in turn provides extra protection against the elements and a deep, glossy sheen.
The Botanical Polymerized Tung Oils are offered in Low Lustre, Medium Lustre and High Lustre.
High Lustre contains the most amount of Tung Oil in the Original Formula line. It’s the product of choice when you want to create a high sheen and the most protection for a project. It’s also a great choice if you want to be able to create different sheens without having to buy the other lustres. The High Lustre can be diluted with Mineral Spirits to create each of the other Lustres.
