Allback Linseed Putty
Linseed Putty for glazing and filling cracks in timber.
Our linseed oil putty is made from cold pressed raw cleaned and sterilized linseed oil and chalk. The putty is used for puttying windows and for filling in cracks and holes in wood. The putty should be regarded as perishable goods, but can be kept for up to one year in a sealed container. If the putty becomes hard, warm the whole package for a few seconds on full effect in a microwave oven and then knead the putty until smooth on a cold surface. Can be deep-frozen for long-term storage. Paint Shellac on all wooden surfaces that will come in direct contact with putty. You can paint direct with Allbäck Paint or after 24 hours.
Warning: Thoroughly wash all rags you use to apply the oils, putty or wax to ensure they don't self-ignite as they dry.
Sydney Paint Warehouse supply an extensive range of products using Linseed Oil.
Made from cold-pressed, purified, raw linseed oil and chalk, this putty is used for glazing windows and also for filling in cracks and holes in wood without shrinking.
Knead well before using. If the putty becomes too soft, allow to cool or add some Allback Chalk Powder. If the putty becomes too firm, warm it up or add some Allback Purified Raw Linseed Oil.
Before applying the putty to glaze windows, paint shellac in the wooden rebates of the window that will come into direct contact with the putty. This will seal the wood and prevent the oil from being drawn out of the putty over time, leading to premature failure.
Dust with Allback Chalk Powder and paint right away with Linseed Oil Paint, or wait for 24 hours to allow the putty to set up before painting. There is no need to neutralize the putty before painting as with other putties and paints. This is a major time-saver.
Allback Linseed Oil Putty can be kept for up to one year at room temperature in a sealed container. If the putty becomes hard, warm the putty and then knead until smooth on a cold surface. Can be frozen for long-term storage.
