About Pine Tar | Material
is "The Real Stuff" 100% Natural: Authentic Pine Tar also referred
as Stockholm Tar is a pure, natural wood preservative made in Sweden from natural pine resin.
Pine Tar has been used since ancient times for creating a water
repellent vapor barrier on wood and rope and for its gentle antiseptic
effect. Pine Tar is used for wood preservation on utility and fence
poles, cottages, splint roofs, boats et cetera. Pine Tar is a more effective
wood preservative and a safer substitute for pressure treated wood. Works
well even for preserving wood used underground. Use
this recipe to thin Pine Tar with Purified
Linseed Oil to obtain faster penetration and avoid stickiness.
Apply warm if possible. Note: do not apply on skin.

Pine Tar Stain

for surface treatment of wooden buildings, outdoor wooden
structures, and wooden boats. Pine Tar Stain provides fantastic
protection for wood in damp or humid climates as well as in
dry and sunny areas. Mix 50% with Purified Raw Linseed
Mixture coverage: 10 square metres / litre depending on surface quality.

PINE TAR STAIN is enhanced with iron oxide / carbon pigments
for durability to withstand strong UV exposure. Pine Tar Stain
has very good penetration on rough cut timber and allows
wood to breathe. Thinning with purified raw linseed oil
gives faster penetration, less stickiness and a matte surface.
Apply as warm as possible for a faster dry time. Like pine
tar, purified linseed oil is a live material and will interact
with the wood surface. When the surface looks dry, apply a
thin warm coat of the purified
raw linseed oil.
Pine Tar Stain is a totally natural product extracted from pine roots
by burning. Color may differ in appearance from various batches.
Mix the estimated amount for the entire area to be covered.
For best results, perform application in hot weather.
IMPORTANT: The pigment will sink to the bottom of the container
in storage, therefore it is important to stir the contents
thoroughly to achieve uniform color on the surface. Stir during
application as well. Finish the entire surface of a wall in
order to avoid uneven shades of color.
IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ OUR PAINTING INSTRUCTIONS.
COLOUR: Deep red / Pitch black
COVERAGE: Varies greatly depending wood quality. 60sqft - 300sqft / 3 Litres.
DRYING TIME: Dry after application is absorbed into the wood surface,
after which the surface feels dry.
THINNING: We recommend Purified Raw Linseed Oil only. If you must use conventional linseed oil from the hardware store, then also add pure gum turpentine or citrus solvent, as these linseed oils are not purified.
CLEANING: Linseed Oil Soap and water
VOC LIMIT: (cat 1.1 / f) 700 g / lit. These are natural VOCs from wood terpenes. There are NO chemical VOCs.
CONTENT MAX: 300Gr/lit.VOC
Mixing Suggestion: Mixing 50% of the Purified Raw Linseed
Oil into the Pigmented Pine Tar Stain will slightly dilute
the color but create a fantastic wood protection in all types
of climates. Once the color is achieved, maintain the surface
by applying a thin coat of the Purified Raw Linseed Oil
every 3-5 years. Maintenance depends of the quality of the
wood and exposure to harsh elements.

About Genuine Pine Tar
Pine tar is a vegetable liquid obtained from the wood of various
trees of the family Pinaceac by distillation. Using a process that
is centuries old, pine stumps and roots are burned very slowly in
special kilns. This pine tar is a resin rich liquid that is extracted
from the bottom of the kiln. This is authentic Stockholm tar. Genuine
Pine Tar has been valued for hundreds of years as a preservative
for wood and natural fiber rope. It is the smell of the square-rigged
ship. Traditional sailors describe this rare grade of tar in words
usually reserved for fine wines and tobaccos.
The product is still used to a great extent for wooden constructions
such as shingles, bridges, boats, barges and cottages. The Swedish
Cultural Management recommends pine tar as surface treatment of
wooden church roofs and other cultural buildings made of wood. There
are examples of stave churches that have been preserved with pine
tar for nearly a thousand years with very few intervals of maintenance.
It is also used for veterinary purposes, in hoof moisture retention
of horses, cattle and sheep and for pharmaceutical purposes as treatment
of different kinds of skin diseases. Pine tar can be found as an
ingredient in shampoos, soaps, and expectorants and in ointments
against allergic rash, psoriasis and eczema, among others. Another
different field of application of pine tar is as a softener when
manufacturing rubber tires.
Case Study: Maintain
wooden roof shingles with pine tar.
Pine tar was the choice for boat builders for hundreds of years.
We now offer the old type pine tar again. Pine tar with the organic
linseed oil mixture makes for excellent wood protection on boats
as well as on wood shingle roofs. The photo in the picture here
was taken at the Mystic Seaport Wooden Boat show in 2008.
