An ancient culture technique: linseed oil

Flax is a centuries-old crop. The oil, which is obtained from its seeds, is used for healthy nutrition and is characterized by a large number of technical fields of application and excellent properties.

Leinölpro oils are particularly suitable as a primer for wooden surfaces and as an admixture for linseed oil paints. The surface becomes water-repellent and remains open-pored.

And even if they are edible: Please refrain from consuming the used oils.

The linseed oils from Leinölpro

Oil and pigment. Nothing else. 

Not only suitable for wood: Linseed oil paints from Leinölpro. Pure linseed oil, cold-pressed, cleaned and free of additives, becomes an opaque, lightfast coating with a high proportion of added pigment. Due to the vapor-open and at the same time water-repellent properties of the paints, you can even use them outdoors. Linseed oil paint has even proven its worth on metal and mineral surfaces.

You can choose between forty standard colors. And if that is not enough, we will mix up your personal shade for you.

Glazes from linseed oil

If the linseed oil paint is too opaque and you want to see a little wood grain, you can do this too. The glazing of wood can be done as a separate surface treatment or as a protective coating for coatings with linseed oil paint. The glaze oil from Leinölpro is a particularly solid oil for the surface treatment of wood. It forms a stable surface that can also be used as a hard floor oil. You can use the glaze oil pure, then it is transparent, even add linseed oil paint to get a desired color and an opacity that suits you. Or buy the finished colored glaze oils from Leinölpro.

Traditional and rustic: clay and linseed oil floors

Clay floors were found in commercial and even residential buildings for centuries. The clay linseed oil floor is a robust, water-repellent version of this traditional technique. We will be happy to advise you on this very special floor covering.

Renovation of a rammed earth floor  

in the Holm-Seppensen Museum

A rammed earth floor was replaced in Sniers Hus. The requirements for a floor here are very high because of its use.The Sniers Hus is rented out for weddings and celebrations. Benches and tables can be set up for different purposes. If these are moved around, the floor must be able to withstand it. Another challenge only came to light during the installation.

When we removed the old floor, the floor was very damp - the area has a continuous layer of clay at a depth of about 60 cm. On this layer of clay, the rainwater flows into the nearby pond. In order to block the path of moisture upwards, we have built in a moisture barrier made of clay granulate. We will see if everything works as it is intended. An exciting project that was a lot of fun!After water damage from water that had run in during the heavy autumn storms, the surface had to be repaired 2 years later.

To do this, I sanded the surface with a floor grinder and applied raw linseed oil as a bonding bridge for the new top filler. I worked on 50 m² for an hour with the floor sander and was able to completely remove about 1 dustpan. So a very solid surface! The water damage had softened the floor, making it prone to high-heeled shoe prints. After drying out, however, the old surface strength was there again.

After a total of 5 years of intensive use and a permanently slightly damp surface, we have removed the entire wear layer and completely renewed it. Here it has been shown that the moisture that is still minimally let through from below has accumulated under the linseed oil filler and could not dry off quickly enough. The linseed oil filling was now loose on the rammed earth as a stable layer. We removed this and reapplied it. Rammed earth should not be used on damp surfaces - permanent intensive care is the result.
