One of the biggest advantages of cold-pressed linseed oil over hot-pressed linseed oil is the minuscule size of its molecules. It is just that the smaller, cold-pressed molecules percolate deeper into the wood and expand when drying. Therefore, processing gives the wood a longer life span and durability, protecting it from mould and fissures.
Linseed oil is highly suitable for food contact coating of wooden surfaces. Linseed oil is fully natural and environmentally safe. Natural linseed oil is meant only for interior finishes. Consumption for planed surfaces is between seven to ten litres per square metre.
