Brief Description / Features of the Technology:
Finishing oils suitable for application on wood and related products have been formulated using the oil extracted from the seeds of Lumbang (Aleurites moluccana Wild) tree. The process consists of initially heating the extracted oil to 95°C then adding 24% lead napthenate solution at a proportion equivalent to 1.5% by weight of oil and 6% cobalt napthenate at an equivalent to 0.5% of oil. The mixture is further heated to 180°C before finally adding paint thinner on 1:1 oil to thinner ratio by volume for one formulation and 1:2 oil-to-thinner ratio by volume for another formulation.
- Production of high quality wood furniture
