Le Tonkinois is a natural oil that is based on lineseed oil
and tung oil. It's environment friendly in contrast to other lineseed
oil based products, it dries quickly and can be recoated after 24
Because of the absence of volatile solvents, it builds up quickly
such that four layers suffice to give a coat of approximately 200
mikrons. A layer this thick is ample protection against water
penetration. Blisters do not form and the layer is sufficiently hard
to withstand abbrasive action and modest mechanical impact, yet is
elastic enough not to crack.
Le Tonkinois is equally at home inside and outside. It withstands
walking and persistant humid conditions and is ultraviolet light
resistant. These characteristics make the product ideal for a
maritime environment . It withstands abrasion , seawater and weather.
Thus, this varnish oil is also very suitable for wooden floors ,
staircases and other 'land-based' uses.
