Wood is a unique material and has always been used by humans for construction. The benefits, including the look and the organic surface, which is comforting to the tactile sense, are its constructive characteristics: Elasticity and stability. To keep these qualities and even enhance them natural oil-based paint is the best choice.
The integral part of Kreidezeit wood paint is the well drying linseed oil. Used for hundreds of years it has played a vital role in the preservation of historical buildings. Linseed oil is obtained by pressing seeds of the flax plant. Due to the extremely small molecules (about 50 times smaller than synthetic resin molecules) it penetrates deep into even smallest wood pores. For the life of the wood upon which it is used, it stays elastic and highly diffusible. It reliably prevents cracks in coats and water logging in wood. We manufacture a variety of products based on linseed oil, pine resin, stand oil, Portuguese balsam turpentine oil and mineral pigments for the treatment of wood.
Carefully thought-out formulas using environmentally friendly and sustainable raw materials based on the science of building physics guarantee the highest safety in application and use. In addition, no hazardous waste is left behind when the materials have to be disposed. These factors make natural Kreidezeit products superior for the treatment of wood in comparison to wide-spread fast drying acrylic- and synthetic resin-based products in many respects. Our oil-based products are free of lead, barium and cobalt.
All products are subject to strict internal quality controls. All raw materials are selected with the utmost care. Of course thorough declaration of all raw materials used is essential to us.
