Drying of linseed oil wood coatings using reactive diluents

Studies of the drying of two linseed oils with different fatty acid patterns, oil A(74.2% linoleic acid) and oil B (55.2% of linolenic acid), show that the structural variations and the addition of the methyl ester of oil A as a reactive diluent (0, 20 and 40wt%) influenced the drying performance and final film properties of the oils. The incorporation of reactive diluents reduced the effects of surface sealing for oil B at higher temperatures and increased the through-drying rate of oil B. Softer coatings were obtained for both oils when using a reactive diluent. Chemical reactions induced by the wood substrates are shown to affect the drying.
