Description

*** This listing is for 1 PINT (16 fl. oz.). See my other listings for other sizes with Etsy-calculated shipping. ***

Pure Tung Oil is a hard drying oil that provides a lustrous and beautiful finish. It resists marring, penetrates well, and is environmentally friendly. Ours is the purest, highest quality you’ll find. All natural, food safe, and creates a flat finish. FDA approved for food contact.

Pure Tung Oil is our favorite wood finish for our vintage-inspired and historic projects. This tung oil is a 100% pure VOC-free (green) wood treatment distributed by the Real Milk Paint Company. Apply as a topcoat to milk paint or simply apply to your woodwork and projects for a fantastic finish. This also works very nicely on bare metal for an oil-rubbed look. This oil is a pleasure to work with.

For best results, you will need to thin pure tung oil. We recommend mixing half-and-half with Citrus Solvent (pure orange oil).

ENHANCE CHARACTER & WATER RESISTANCE WITH A GREAT FINISH

The Tung Oil offered by Real Milk Paint is a pure oil meaning it comes without any additives or distillates. Most other companies can be anything from a thinned down varnish to polymerized tung oil, and most have petroleum distillates added. Ours will not build a gloss finish or heavy finish, but will penetrate deeply into the wood to enhance character and water resistance while creating a great wood finish.

This makes our tung perfect for uses such as wood bowls, wood counter tops, butcher blocks, cutting boards, chopping blocks, outdoor furniture, decks, wood siding, wood flooring, concrete, brick and just about any porous surface that needs an environmentally friendly product.

We guarantee our Pure Tung Oil is ASTM Quality Tested to be light in color with the highest amount of reactive sites to ensure drying and a great wood finish. Only the freshest, highest quality, most costly oil is “Shipped Daily” from our facility. Remember that “Quality is long enjoyed while a cheap price is long endured”. My family and dedicated associates thank you for your support.

Our oil is a natural “Honey” color. Cheaper grades are generally off-color or greenish. Other companies will not talk about th color oils are supposed to be because it’s their quality does not uphold. But color is important, you are using it to finish your wood so it makes sense that the way it looks plays a big part in the finish of your product.

HOW FRESH IS OUR PURE TUNG OIL?

All of our Tung Oils are “fresh” pumped from a drum just before shipping. They are packaged in #2 HDPE recyclable bottles because being devoted to an environmentally friendly product isn’t just about the what’s in the bottle! If you’re looking for a darker finish, be sure to also see our exclusive Dark Raw Tung Oil.

For new wood floors and refinishing wood floors, applications must be thinned for the best wood finish. “Floor Finishing and Pure Tung Oil“, “How to Stain Floors” and our newest article “How to Finish Decks and Porches“.

For other applications the following methods should work well, as always test your application method before full application to a large project. We strive to provide the best information and assistance possible. If you have any question or feedback, please call.

HISTORY

Pure Tung Oil comes from cold pressing of the seeds or nuts of the Tung tree, which mainly grow in the mountainous regions of China away from industrialization and pollution. Climate, soil and air quality are essential for high quality oil. Ours is 100% Pure Chinese Tung Oil, which is also known as China wood oil and is an all-natural finish manufactured by pressing the tung nut, no petroleum distillates or other additives – just pure oil. Some low priced marketers will package South American Tung Oil (dark, greenish in color) and sell it as the higher quality Chinese. Chinese Tung is available in 3 grades, we only offer the best available, Grade 1 yellow. This high quality oil offers superior color, faster drying and a long term elastic finish. Elasticity is an important factor as the oil must continue to flex with the expansion and contraction of the substrate on which it is applied.

It’s one of the first and remains to be one of the only truly “Green” or environmentally friendly finishes. It is all natural and contains zero VOC’s. It’s an all-natural finishing product that provides a tough, flexible and highly water-resistant coating or wood finish. It is classed as a drying oil along with linseed, poppy seed, safflower seed, walnut, soybean, oiticica and a few other oils. Although it is relatively new to the Western world, it has been known for centuries to the Chinese, and until this century, China was the main source. It comes from the seed of the tung trees, Aleurites fordii and Aleurites montana, deciduous trees that are very susceptible to frost damage. This vulnerability has restricted the cultivation of the trees to China and South America. It’s been used in the building trades as a treatment for both stone and wooden structures; in marine trades as a preservative and water repellant on wooden boats for centuries. It is said to have been introduced to the West by Marco Polo. From the 13th to the 19th century, tung oil had only limited use in the West. More recently, it’s gained favor over linseed oil for wood finishing because it is faster drying and does not darken as much with age.

APPLICATION

Pure Tung by the Real Milk Paint Company is recommended for wood finishing of kitchen tables, chopping blocks, cutting boards, wood and concrete counter tops, wood floors, concrete floors, refinishing wood floors, outdoor decks, outdoor furniture, wood siding, log homes both interior and exterior and similar uses. Its non-toxic nature makes it particularly appropriate for children’s toys and furniture. It gives good protection to wood paneling and molding.

The oil’s matte finish will do nicely on certain pieces of furniture, but if a glossy finish is preferred you will need to buff and wax the finish, or use polymerized tung oil or a formulated tung oil based product over the Pure Tung Oil.

We have found tung oil to be a valuable helper in the workshop. It adheres very well to metal, and a light coat rubbed onto tool steel is an effective rust inhibitor. Wooden handles will also benefit from the occasional coat.

THINNING: Can be thinned with Citrus Solvent for a all natural finish. Can also be thinned with Mineral Spirits, Paint thinner, Odorless Paint thinner. Do not use the “Green” type paint thinner or odorless paint thinners. These “Green” thinner contain water. They will not mix with the oil.

TEMPERATURE: Tung Oil should remain above freezing during and after application for a period of 10 to 15 days. If freezing temperatures do occur it is possible for the fat in the oil to rise out of the oil and deposit on the surface. The warmer the temperature the faster the oil will cure. However direct sunlight baking a surface after a “fresh” application can quickly polymerize the oil and result in a dry rubbery frosted appearance or a distinctly more glossy finish than the surrounding area.

STORING MATERIAL: Stored in moderate temperatures. Do not freeze and do not store in hot places like attics. It should also be stored out of direct sunlight like a mildly heated basement area. A mixture of Pure Tung Oil and Citrus Solvent should be stored in the “White” Citrus Solvent container. These are treated to hold the Solvent for optimum storage.

FDA: Pure Tung Oil is approved for food contact by the FDA. View document.

NOTE: 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.
