The special ingredients used in the manufacture of Danish Oil penetrate deep into all types of timber, drying to a hard, durable, and water-resistant seal. Unlike varnishes, it does not leave a thick film which may peel, chip or craze on ageing.
The oil dries quickly in 4-6 hours, dependent on the ambient temperature and humidity, producing a non-tacky surface. It does not, therefore, pick up dust or dirt as will wood treated with linseed oil. As it is a hard-drying oil, it may be used as a primer or sealer on bare wood before applying other finishes.
Rustins Danish Oil conforms to The Articles in Contact with Food Regulations and to the Toys (Safety) Regulations 1995, BS:EN71 Part 3.
