Obtained by pine carbonization, Swedish Tar was used in Scandinavia for centuries to protect and preserve boats, landing stages and wooden everyday tools. In addition to the protection of the wooden structures against the rot, the natural tar is also slightly antiseptic.
The pine tar is a blackish brown viscous liquid, containing neutral oil, resinous and fatty acids. The resin contains wooden protective substances against the rot, the insects and so on.
It penetrates deeply into the wood and prevents drying and cracking. Indeed, dried and cracked wood, easily permeable to water, quickly generates decomposition and moulds. By preventing drying, you avoid the rot.
The tar can be applied on all woods, without track. It does not blister, does not flake.
The pine tar oil is the protection of the wood created by the nature itself, completely natural, harmless for the environment and 100% biodegradable.
