Did you know that boiled linseed oil has not been boiled?
Boiled linseed oil is mislabeled as boiled, but actually, it is just linseed oil with added metal dryers.
Why do manufacturers do this?
As you may know, linseed oil has a long curing time, so adding metal dryers significantly reduces the curing time.
It is also much cheaper to add dryers to linseed oil than to heat it.
These metal dryers are not safe in households with children and older adults with health conditions. It is more suitable for an industrial environment where adequate protection is available.
