About Zest-it® Pure Tung Oil
Leaf, Fruit and Pit of the Tung tree, the oil comes from the seed or pit inside the 'nut' which is actually a Drupe same family as peaches and plums.
Zest-it Pure Tung Oil Group
Tung Oil has been in use for thousands of years by Asian countries for the preservation of paper, wooden boats, varnish, paint, cloth, also as a coating for food, drink medical containers and wire insulation.
The Chinese for instance have utilised the properties of Tung oil for eons, for caulking and painting of their boats, for treating leather, for waterproofing paper and cloth.
The fruit of the Tung tree is often called a nut, although technically it is not, it is actually a Drupe.
They are about the size of a tomato, which starts as green in colour gradually changing to a purple/magenta colour on ripening. The fruits grow in clusters, each yielding four or five pits or stones. The seed inside the stone contains the oil and it is cold pressed to release it
Tung oil or China Wood Oil is arguably the best natural finish for wood. In over 100 years of development of synthetic resins and varnishes no one has developed a coating that surpasses the overall performance of natural Tung oil.
We also have a complimentary Tung Oil Dilutant for thinning the oil as required.
