CAS Number: -
Linseed oil is obtained from the seed of the flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) a plant grown mainly in Canada and increasingly in Eastern Europe. The oil content in the seed is 35-45%.

The boiled oil is obtained from adding drying agents (metals, except lead is not used) to the crude oil. The end result is an increase in the reactivity.

Its high content of linolenic fatty acid makes it a siccative oil that after its polymerization gives a high level of resistance to the final product. The increase in its reactivity also makes it a raw material in, among other sectors, the preservation of wood, coatings, inks and paints manufacturer.
