Commonly referred to as Chinese wood oil, Tung oil is often applied as a finish to a variety of materials, such as bamboo, concrete, stone, brick, and even metal. This fast-drying, easy-to-apply, non-toxic oil helps protect materials from water, heat, rust, acid, and other destructive elements. Tung oil is a preferred finish for furniture, toys, flooring, decks, siding, cabinetry, and musical instruments. The yielded gloss of the finish depends on the amount of tung oil applied to an object, with larger concentrations requiring longer drying times. Tung Oil may be used on its own or combined with other materials to create different colored or textured finishes.
