Want to know more about Turpentine? Here you can read all about Turpentine oil, Venetian Turpentine, Portuguese Turpentine and Pinecone Turpentine oil, etc. What is turpentine good for?

Turpentine and related products have a large number of names including Turpentine, Portuguese Turpentine, Venetian Turpentine, turpentine oil and a few more depending on where the turpentine is made, but whatever it is called, turpentine is in any case the natural solvent used. is used to dilute all natural oil and wax products. Many people say that Turpentine smells like old-fashioned floor polish, but actually that old-fashioned floor wax smells like turpentine...

Turpentine is extracted by tapping sap from coniferous trees and distilling that sap. The sap of the trees can be obtained by making a cut in the bark and hanging a jar under it, as is done with latex. In addition to this method, the sap can also be obtained from the roots of the trees and nowadays much turpentine is even made by leaving the tree alone and extracting the sap from the pine cones instead. The turpentine from our range is obtained from pine cones.

The volatile substance released during distillation is the turpentine oil that we are talking about here. The hard substance that remains after distilling the turpentine oil is the resin type Colophonium that can be dissolved with turpentine oil. In the past, varnish was made by dissolving resin in turpentine, and that process has not actually changed. However, nowadays synthetic resins are often used to make varnish instead of the many different types of natural resin that we used to use. So many types of trees, so many types of resin. In the past, different varnishes with different properties were made by combining different types of resin. One of the most important trading places where all these different types of resin could be purchased was Bernice in present-day Libya. So if you wanted to make a clear coat you went to Bernice, a concept that has slowly been corrupted from Bernice via Bernis to varnish..

Venetian Turpentine resembles turpentine oil, but is a thick liquid, somewhat yellowish variant that still consists of a mixture of turpentine and rosin. As the name suggests, Venetian Turpentine originally comes from the Venice area. Even with regular turpentine, it can happen that if it stands for a long time, some resin still becomes visible as sediment.

Is there a difference between turpentine and turpentine?

Turpentine is often confused with turpentine. There are even manufacturers who mention both the words turpentine and turpentine on one package. However, turpentine is a natural product while turpentine is a petroleum derivative with completely different properties...

Is turpentine harmful?

Many people find turpentine oil smells nice. However, this more or less pleasant smell is an "instinker" because, in combination with the fact that it is a natural product, it could give the impression that it would be harmless and that is unfortunately not the case; Turpentine oil is also harmful to health. Our products do not contain turpentine oil as standard, but if you want to dilute the products, this is a suitable solution.

Our other oils should all be stored with as little oxygen as possible in, for example, Stoploss bags. For turpentine, storing oxygen-free is less exciting, but it is still advisable, especially if you can use a can for a long time, to store the turpentine cool, dark and without oxygen to enjoy it for as long as possible. For those who have never heard of a stop loss bag, click on this link for more information about these storage bags that are suitable for oil, varnish, stain and the like. Of course, the bags can also be reused. When it is almost empty, buy a new container of the finished product and simply pour it back into the bag.
