Linseed oil and tung oil are the two most common types of varnish or finish used in the field of woodworking. Tung oil is also known as China wood oil. It has many more benefits than the more commonly used linseed oil.
The Waterlox Original 350VOC Satin finish is a unique product, perfect for many of your woodworking projects––not just hardwood floors! It provides a satin sheen appearance and is the lowest gloss Waterlox finish. It penetrates and waterproofs when used as a finishing system in conjunction with Waterlox Original Sealer/Finish. 90% of the resin formula is made of natural, renewable resources. It’s also simple to apply and ready to use, straight from the can.
Tung oil is far superior when it comes to water resistance. This is the main reason as to why it’s the best choice among woodworking professionals. Waterlox tung oil creates a waterproof or spill-proof finish which is extremely useful on all interior wood projects including floors, doors, cabinets, picture frames, wooden mantels, wood paneling, window sills or frames, tables, and other types of furniture. It’s much easier to maintain than other interior clear finishes.
Waterlox Original is a resistant varnish that creates a long lasting product that will need far less maintenance in the years to come. It will cost the homeowner much less to retouch or refinish than to replace entire rooms of wood flooring due to water damage. Waterlox is quickly becoming the preferred brand when waterproofing is required for any interior woodworking project. This is the Waterlox advantage.
