Pure tung oil is the premium wood finishing oil among the group of auto oxidising, unsaturated oils. This pure oil is derived from the nuts of tung trees – Aleurites fordii – native to East Asia. It is a pale gold brown in colour and has a viscosity somewhat like olive oil.
Pure tung oil will harden on contact with oxygen and provides an excellent, waterproof, durable and food-safe finish to timber
It can also be used as a figure enhancing sealer under other top finishes such as shellacs and varnishes.
