Linseed oil

Linseed oil is a vegetable oil obtained from the seeds of flax. Linseed oil contains very many unsaturated fatty acids, which can be chemically reacted very well.
Linseed oil is therefore used in industrial chemistry. It serves as a raw material for the production of raw materials for oil paints, varnishes, oil varnishes and linoleum, and to a lesser extent for the modification of alkyd resins and for the preparation of soft soaps and letterpress ink. Because of its polymerizing properties, linseed oil can be used as a paint binder.
In veterinary medicine, linseed oil is used, for example, as a laxative for sheep and horses, and in cosmetics, for example, in exfoliating creams. To a lesser extent, cold-pressed linseed oil is used as an edible oil.
At KRAEMER, linseed oil is used, for example, to produce raw materials for glazes and wood coatings.
