Real Milk Paint Pure Tung Oil is exactly that: pure tung oil with no additives or petroleum distillates. This is the highest grade tung oil available, with a light honey tone that adds brilliance to any wood. Tung is one of our favorite finishes, as it polymerizes for a highly durable, water-resistant finish, and is FDA approved for food conatact. Tung oil dries to a matte finish, and will not build up a coating but will rather seal the wood at the surface. It will not blister and peel, and does not mold or darken with time like linseed oil.
Pure Tung Oil is honey golden in color and adds a rich look to wooden surfaces. Dark Tung Oil has the look of strong coffee. The darker tint is imparted by a resinous hydrocarbon that adds to the complexity of the finished look. We especially like the way Dark Tung Oil brings out the open grain of oak, highlighting the natural beauty of the wood.
Tung oil is an excellent finish for outdoor furniture, and a great natural choice for protecting your deck. Likewise, it's a great choice for floors, chairs and countertops. Very porous surfaces can absorb pure oil, but for a natural finish with better penetration and quicker drying times, mix with Citrus Solvent. Can be used on any wood, and even brick or concrete.
Real Milk Paint goes to great lengths to provide the freshest, highest quality Tung Oil available. They package just before shipping so you receive the freshest product possible. The only way your likely to get a fresher product is by wringing out the tung nut yourself.
For a light seal, apply 2-4 coats. For heavy-wear, apply at least 6 coats. Ideal application is full saturation: apply tung oil until the wood won’t soak up any more.

Tung Oil is Flammable: Keep containers tightly closed away from extreme temperature changes and open flames. As with all oils, rags, steel wool or waste soaked with oil, may spontaneously catch fire if improperly discarded. Immediately after use, place the oil soaked material in a sealed water-filled metal container or hang outside separately to dry.
