Histocolour offers the finest Linseed based paint available today. Linseed oil paint penetrates the surface far better than any synthetic paints (which only form a film on the surface) and has therefore, a much longer life span. It forms a bond with the structure and so does not flake or peel. Its wicking properties allow any moisture in the wood to escape, avoiding rot. Linseed paint is completely natural and does not contain any solvents. Once properly applied, a coat of linseed oil from time to time is all that’s needed to revive existing paintwork, making this the most durable paint finish for exterior paintwork.
