Morrells Tung Oil is 100% pure Tung nut oil, made from the pressed seeds of the Chinese Tung Tree and gives a superior finish to that of other traditional pure oils, such as Linseed oil. Normally produced in China, it gives a smooth, clean finish that forms a thin film on furniture and other wooden surfaces to provide a water-resistant barrier when 3-5 coats have been applied. Tung oil is able to move and flex as wooden surfaces and furniture expand and contract with changing temperatures. Easy to work with and maintain, pure Tung oil is both safe and versatile and can be used on almost any surface including, food preparation areas, floorboards, furniture, children's play areas, childrens toys and much more.
Please note: Tung Oil is extracted from nuts and may cause an allergic reaction.
It is recommended that any dirt and grease is removed from the surface with a good quality white spirit or other form of de-greasing agent.
Always do a test area before starting any project, to asses product suitability and final finish. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.
Please Note: Tung oil can be slow drying and waiting times depend on the coverage and the environmental conditions. It is possible to thin Tung oil, if necessary with white spirit. A thick coat will dry within 3 days and a thin coat will dry in around 12 - 24 hours.
As with most wood finishing oils, waxes and stains, care should be taken with the storage of Morrells Tung Oil. To prolong the life and retain the properties it should be stored in a tightly sealed container somewhere that is both cool and dry.
Morrells Tung Oil is very easy to maintain and repair. Most knocks, minor damages and stains from spillages can be removed by gently sanding the affected area and re-applying a fresh coat of Tung Oil. This will blend in with the original finish to produce an almost invisible repair.
