Gennaro,

Borate answers that question, it is a fungicide, insecticide, termiticide.
As well as a necessary mineral to our health and well being along with
calcium and magnesium, and other minerals. I found that borate in using it
as an insecticide cured my arthritis. So when I found that I had prostate
cancer, I researched on the internet and found that it was an element that
would help control cancer. I was being treated at the VA Hospital in San
Antonio, we found that the PSA was reduced 5 times faster with Tri-Boron
that I bought at a health food store, than without the boron. I continue to
take it but at every other day rather than every day. The doctors were
surprised to find that the Borate did not show up in my blood tests. I have
taken the prescribed cancer medication and will continue to do so. Boron is
a salt and will dry out your skin if you take too much. 

 

We continue to use borate as a pretreatment and treatment for insects and
fungus homes at new construction, as well as existing frame buildings.

Can tung oil go rancid like other edible oils and if so does it matter?

I ask because I am considering buying from a new supplier and don't know the
age of the oil.

Exactly - the more the coats the more it'll build up and could go glossier.
Buff it for more sheen.

Hey Gennaro,

I've never used Tung Oil myself, but talking recently with another
woodworker who uses it a lot he explained that you need to build up multiple
layers of TO to get the shiny finish, (up to seven layers on wood) and once
you do, it is very tough and resilient.

It is only matte as long as it is being absorbed. Once it has sealed, any
additional layers oxidize on the surface and can be highly polished.

Cheers,
Steve.

Interesting. My experience is tung is matte. Maybe it was the wood

 Don't know about mixing with citrus or linseed, but I do know that Tung Oil
itself gives a shinny finish like a varnish, not at all like an oil finish
(discovered to my dismay after accepting an offer to refinish a good coffee
table with Tung Oil).

Hello, 
I'm interested in your experience with mixing tung oil, citrus solvent and
linseed oil for floors. My experience is that linseed leaves more of a
shinny coating which sort of replicates typical varnish. Does anyone have
suggestions on floor applications? Just tung and citrus? Or is putting a
little linseed better?
 
Thanks!
