The Original Formula Polymerized Tung Oil is the first product Sutherland Welles Ltd.® formulated. It’s a perfect choice for creating the finest hand rubbed finish. This product can be used for many different projects.
Sutherland Welles Ltd.® Original Formula line was their very first line over 50 years ago. Still today, Sutherland Welles Ltd.® is formulating the line much as they did then with some important improvements. Sutherland Welles Ltd.® uses very low toxic chemical driers and now use a VOC exempt solvent that is virtually odorless.
That plus working with a natural tree product that is sustainably grown and harvested makes the completed formulation a great ecological choice for any project. This user-friendly line makes creating a beautiful hand-rubbed patina on cabinets, furniture, walls, windows, doors and floors a satisfying project.
