Selders linseed oil products work excellently for woodworking both indoors and outdoors. For extra protection or in extra-exposed areas such as window frames, cornices, etc., one can advantageously treat these with oil before they are then painted with linseed oil paint, for extra resistance. Here are our tips for outdoor oil painting:
Selders drying universal linseed oil makes wood water repellent and rot resistant. For smaller jobs, it is perfectly fine to apply the oil by hand with a natural brush. See image 1. In order to avoid sore joints and complete sadness in larger jobs (if you are going to prepare sashes for a large villa or similar) we recommend instead putting these in a bath of linseed oil!
A balanced primer is a prerequisite for a well-executed painting work and a durable end result. Selders base color is extra fat and zinc-based, which means that it has good adhesion and counteracts mold and other growth. The primer should always be used regardless of whether the surface is clean wood or already painted. See image 2.
- Final coating
The linseed oil paint is painted to cover but not thick layers, undiluted directly from the can. Usually it is sufficient with one layer of primer and two layers final coating. See image 3. Selders linseed oil paint remains durable and nice looking as good as forever if you prime and paint according to these instructions. We mix linseed oil paint in desired color after NCS, RAL and several other colors. Tips, if you have an older color samples, from for example a color flake from an old trim etc, we can help find the nearest shade.
The paint is aged by slowly breaking the binder by the sun's rays. When this happens, after a few years or decades depending on location and weather, the color becomes dull and fades. Don't panic though, a thin layer of linseed oil varnish replaces the lost binder and instantly reproduces the surface its original color and shine!
One of the advantages of Selders linseed oil paint is that it adheres to most materials such as plastered facades, wooden facades, wooden details, sheet metal, metal and even galvanized materials where many other colors have problems with grip.
