CAS NO:8001-26-1

Linseed oil, also known as flaxseed oil or flax oil (in its edible form), is a colourless to yellowish oil obtained from the dried, ripened seeds of the flax plant (Linum usitatissimum). 
The oil is obtained by pressing, sometimes followed by solvent extraction. 
Flax oil is a drying oil, meaning it can polymerize into a solid form. Owing to its polymer-forming properties, Flax oil can be used on its own or blended with combinations of other oils, resins or solvents as an impregnator, drying oil finish or varnish in wood finishing, as a pigment binder in oil paints, as a plasticizer and hardener in putty, and in the manufacture of linoleum. 
Flax oil use has declined over the past several decades with increased availability of synthetic alkyd resins—which function similarly but resist yellowing.

Flax oil is an edible oil in demand as a dietary supplement, as a source of α-Linolenic acid, (an omega-3 fatty acid).
 In parts of Europe,Flax oil is traditionally eaten with potatoes and quark.
Flax oil is regarded as a delicacy due to its hearty taste and ability to improve the bland flavour of quark.

Structure and composition

Representative triglyceride found in a Flax oil, a triester (triglyceride) derived of linoleic acid, alpha-linolenic acid, and oleic acid.
Flax oil is a triglyceride, like other fats. 
Flax oil is distinctive for its unusually large amount of α-linolenic acid, which has a distinctive reaction with oxygen in air. Specifically, the fatty acids in a typical Flax oil are of the following types:
The triply unsaturated α-linolenic acid (51.9–55.2%),
The saturated acids palmitic acid (about 7%) and stearic acid (3.4–4.6%),
The monounsaturated oleic acid (18.5–22.6%),
The doubly unsaturated linoleic acid (14.2–17%).

Drying properties
Main article: drying oil
Having a high content of di- and tri-unsaturated esters, Flax oil is particularly susceptible to polymerization reactions upon exposure to oxygen in air. 
This polymerization, which is called "drying", results in the rigidification of the material. To prevent premature drying, Flax oil-based products (oil paints, putty) are stored in airtight containers.

Rags soaked with Flax oil stored pose fire hazard because they provide a large surface area for rapid oxidation. The oxidation of Flax oil is exothermic, which may lead to spontaneous combustion. In 1991, One Meridian Plaza, a high rise in Philadelphia, was severely damaged in a fire, in which three firefighters perished, thought to be caused by rags soaked with Flax oil.

Most applications of Flax oil exploit its drying properties, i.e., the initial material is liquid or at least pliable and the aged material is rigid but not brittle. The water-repelling (hydrophobic) nature of the resulting hydrocarbon-based material is advantageous.

Paint binder

"Your country needs flax .." U.S. WWII poster soliciting Flax oil for use in paint
Flax oil is the carrier used in oil paint.
Flax oil can also be used as a painting medium, making oil paints more fluid, transparent and glossy.
Flax oil is available in varieties such as cold-pressed, alkali-refined, sun-bleached, sun-thickened, and polymerised (stand oil). The introduction of Flax oil was a significant advance in the technology of oil painting.

Traditional glazing putty, consisting of a paste of chalk powder and Flax oil, is a sealant for glass windows that hardens within a few weeks of application and can then be painted over. 
The durability of putty is owed to the drying properties of Flax oil.

Wood finish
When used as a wood finish, Flax oil dries slowly and shrinks little upon hardening. 
Flax oil does not cover the surface as varnish does, but soaks into the (visible and microscopic) pores, leaving a shiny but not glossy surface that shows off the grain of the wood. 
A Flax oil finish is easily scratched, and easily repaired.
Only wax finishes are less protective. 
Liquid water penetrates a Flax oil finish in mere minutes, and water vapour bypasses it almost completely. 
Garden furniture treated with Flax oil may develop mildew. Oiled wood may be yellowish and is likely to darken with age. Because it fills the pores, Flax oil partially protects wood from denting by compression.

Flax oil is a traditional finish for firearm stocks, though very fine finish may require months to obtain. 
Several coats of Flax oil is the traditional protective coating for the raw willow wood of cricket bats;
Flax oil is used so that the wood retains some moisture.
New cricket bats are coated with Flax oil and knocked-in to perfection so that they last longer. 
Flax oil is also often used by billiards or pool cue-makers for cue shafts, as a lubricant/protectant for wooden recorders, and used in place of epoxy to seal modern wooden surfboards.

Additionally, a luthier may use Flax oil when reconditioning a guitar, mandolin, or other stringed instrument's fret board; lemon-scented mineral oil is commonly used for cleaning, then a light amount of Flax oil (or other drying oil) is applied to protect it from grime that might otherwise result in accelerated deterioration of the wood.

Boiled Flax oil is used as sizing in traditional oil gilding to adhere sheets of gold leaf to a substrate (parchment, canvas, Armenian bole, etc.).
Flax oil has a much longer working time than water-based size and gives a firm smooth surface that is adhesive enough in the first 12–24 hours after application to cause the gold to attach firmly to the intended surface.

Flax oil is used to bind wood dust, cork particles, and related materials in the manufacture of the floor covering linoleum. After its invention in 1860 by Frederick Walton, linoleum, or 'lino' for short, was a common form of domestic and industrial floor covering from the 1870s until the 1970s when it was largely replaced by PVC ('vinyl') floor coverings. However, since the 1990s, linoleum is returning to favor, being considered more environmentally sound than PVC.
Flax oil has given its name to the printmaking technique linocut, in which a relief design is cut into the smooth surface and then inked and used to print an image. The results are similar to those obtained by woodcut printing.

Nutritional supplement and food
Raw cold-pressed Flax oil – commonly known as flax seed oil in nutritional contexts – is easily oxidized, and rapidly becomes rancid, with an unpleasant odour, unless refrigerated. 
Flax oil is not generally recommended for use in cooking. Alpha linolenic acid (ALA) while bound to flaxseed ALA can withstand temperatures up to 175 °C (350 °F) for two hours.

Food-grade flaxseed oil is cold-pressed, obtained without solvent extraction, in the absence of oxygen, and marketed as edible flaxseed oil. 
Fresh, refrigerated and unprocessed, Flax oil is used as a nutritional supplement and is a traditional European ethnic food, highly regarded for its nutty flavor. 
Regular flaxseed oil contains between 57% and 71% polyunsaturated fats (alpha-linolenic acid, linoleic acid). Plant breeders have developed flaxseed with both higher ALA (70%) and very low ALA content (< 3%). The USFDA granted generally recognized as safe (GRAS) status for high alpha linolenic flaxseed oil.

Modified Flax oil
Stand oil
Stand oil is generated by heating Flax oil near 300 °C for a few days in the complete absence of air. 
Under these conditions, the polyunsaturated fatty esters convert to conjugated dienes, which then undergo Diels-Alder reactions, leading to crosslinking. 
The product, which is highly viscous, gives highly uniform coatings that "dry" to more elastic coatings than Flax oil itself. Soybean oil can be treated similarly, but converts more slowly. 
On the other hand, tung oil converts very quickly, being complete in minutes at 260 °C. Coatings prepared from stand oils are less prone to yellowing than are coatings derived from the parent oils.

Boiled Flax oill
Boiled Flax oil is a combination of raw Flax oil, stand oil (see above), and metallic oil drying agents (catalysts to accelerate drying).
 In the Medieval era, Flax oil was boiled with lead oxide (litharge) to give a product called boiled Flax oil. The lead oxide forms lead "soaps" (lead oxide is alkaline) which promotes hardening (polymerisation) of Flax oil by reaction with atmospheric oxygen. 
Heating shortens its drying time.

Raw Flax oil
Raw Flax oil is the base oil, unprocessed and without driers or thinners. 
Flax oil is mostly used as a feedstock for making a boiled oil. 
Flax oil does not cure sufficiently well or quickly to be regarded as a drying oil. Raw Flax oil is sometimes used for oiling cricket bats to increase surface friction for better ball control.
Flax oil was also used to treat leather flat belt drives to reduce slipping.

Flax oil and linseed oil are the oils that come from flaxseed. 
Flax oil is usually used in manufacturing, while flaxseed oil is used for nutrition. 
Flax oil contains the essential omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). 
In foods, Flax oil is used in salad dressings and in margarines. 
Flax oil is also used as a medicine.

Flax oil is used for carpal tunnel syndrome, diabetic foot ulcers, and dry eye.
Flax oil is also used for heart disease, high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), high levels of cholesterol or other fats (lipids) in the blood (hyperlipidemia), and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.

How does it work ?
Flax oil is a source of polyunsaturated fatty acids such as alpha-linolenic acid. 
The alpha-linolenic acid and related chemicals in Flax oil seem to decrease inflammation. 
That is why Flax oil is thought to be useful for rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory (swelling) diseases.

Uses & Effectiveness ?
Possibly Effective for
Foot sores in people with diabetes. 
Research shows that taking Flax oil twice daily for 12 weeks may help foot ulcers to heal faster in people with diabetes.
Dry eye. 
Early research shows that taking Flax oil by mouth might reduce irritation and symptoms of dry eyes in people with a condition called Sjögren syndrome. 
Taking a specific product containing fish oil plus Flax oil by mouth might reduce symptoms of dry eye and increase tear production. 
Using eye drops that contain Flax oil may help reduce certain symptoms of dry eye in some, but not all, people.

Flax oil comes from ripened flaxseeds that manufacturers have cold pressed to extract the oil. Another name for Flax oil is linseed oil.

Flax oil is commercially available in both capsule and liquid form. 
Flax oil contains a type of omega-3 fatty acid called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).

The body uses ALA from flaxseed oil and converts it in small amounts to other fatty acids, including docosahexaenoic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid.

Omega-3 fatty acids are vital to a person’s physical and mental health.

Flax oil does not contain the same nutrients as the whole seed. For example, flaxseeds contain fiber, magnesium, and vitamin B, but flaxseed oil does not.

Benefits of Flax oil
Although scientists have conducted more research into flaxseed than Flax oil, some studies into the oil do show promising results.

The possible benefits of Flax oil include:

Reducing cholesterol
Similar to flaxseed, Flax oil may help lower cholesterol levels. The ALA in flaxseed oil might play a role in decreasing low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or “bad,” cholesterol.

Fighting cancer
Flax oil may help fight certain types of cancer. 

Treating atopic dermatitis
Flax oil may also have benefits for the skin and hair, such as reducing some of the symptoms of atopic dermatitis. Atopic dermatitis is a type of eczema, which is a long-term condition that causes red and itchy skin.

Reducing diabetes risk
Flax oil may also help lower the risk of diabetes. 

Decreasing inflammation
In one meta-analysisTrusted Source, flaxseed and its derivatives decreased circulating C-reactive protein, which is a marker of inflammation. However, these results were only present in adults who were obese.

How to use Flax oil
Flax oil is sensitive to light and heat, so it is best to buy it in an opaque or dark glass bottle to protect it from the light and store it in a cool, dark place.

The taste of Flax oil is mild. People can drink a spoonful straight or incorporate it into dips and sauces.

People can also use Flax oil instead of other oils or butter for cooking. 
Flax oil is sensitive to heat, so cooking with it will change the nutritional properties.

For those who do not want to add flaxseed oil to food, it is also available in capsule form as a supplement.

Flax oil is made from ground and pressed flax seeds. 
Flax oil is known for its many health benefits, including lowering inflammation, preventing heart disease, and reducing cancer risk. There are many more health benefits, along with some side effects and precautions to take when adding flaxseed oil to your diet.

Health Benefits
Flaxseed oi contains many active and helpful compounds,1 including: 

Omega-3 fatty acids
Healthy proteins that may decrease risk factors of heart disease
Fiber to prevent digestive issues and constipation
Phenolic compounds (lignans), which may prevent cancer
Minerals, including calcium and magnesium
Here are some of the impressive health benefits of flaxseed oil and evidence to back up these claims. 

Lowers Inflammation 
Because Flax oil contains omega-3 fatty acids, Flax oil may reduce inflammation. 

One analysis of multiple human studies found Flax oil contained compounds helpful for reducing C-reactive protein (an inflammation marker) in some of the study participants.

The analysis indicates the properties of Flax oil may affect people differently and, therefore, more research is needed to determine its effects on inflammation in the general population.

What is Flax oil?
Flax oil, also known as linseed oil or flax oil, is an oil harvested from the dried, ripe seeds of the flax plant.  Like other oils, it is released through the pressing of these seeds. 

The reason this oil is so healthy is that it has a high concentration of omega-3 fatty acids. You may already know that omega-3s are important to overall health and body function and that they support the cardiovascular, pulmonary, immune, and respiratory systems.

We need omega-3s to function properly, and our bodies crave them. These fatty acids are found in foods like nuts, seeds, fish, and soybeans as well as in oils like Flax oil, but the high concentration of them in flaxseed oil will help us to get more of them even more easily.

Further, there are different types of omega-3s, and while they are all beneficial to our health, the specific one found in Flax oil is alpha-linolenic acid, also known as ALA. 
Our bodies don’t make this type of fat on their own because it is plant-based. However, we can still benefit from it because our bodies will convert it to the types it does need for us. This makes Flax oil a great way for vegans and vegetarians to get their needed omega-3s.

Flax oil has other components that bolster our overall health as well. 
Flax oil includes proteins that help decrease heart disease risk factors. The fiber within it helps combat constipation.
Flax oil also has within it minerals our bodies need like calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. And, best of all, flaxseed oil contains phenolic compounds to help protect us from cancer.

Flaxseed Oil Benefits for Health
Now that you know how flaxseed oil works to help you, and how to use it, the potential benefits to your health it can provide will amaze you.

1. Inflammation Reduction
According to research, flaxseed oil may work to reduce inflammation, which can help people who experience pain. 
Flax oil is believed that due to the omega-3 fatty acid content, it may even be as effective as olive oil in this realm.
Flax oil especially seems to have an immense effect on people who are obese, according to one study. 

2. Reduction in Cancer Cell Growth
There are few families who have not been affected by cancer. As a result, people are always looking for cancer-fighting foods, and flaxseed oil is one of them. 

3. Improvement in Skin Health
Many people who use flaxseed oil topically or internally report that it greatly improves the quality of their skin even over a relatively short time. Several studies also seem to suggest this as well. 

4. Improvement in Heart Function
Again, the omega-3 fatty acids in Flax oil offer a major health benefit in the heart and circulatory system. Because of the fact that these acids help to reduce inflammation, the blood vessels open up to allow more blood to flow through unencumbered as more omega-3 fatty acids are introduced into the body. 

This action will help to stave off both heart attack and stroke, two of the leading causes of death in the United States today. Further, the omega-3 fatty acids help your pulmonary system in another way, too. They can lower blood pressure and also reduce the risk of irregular heartbeat. 

5. Constipation and Diarrhea Relief
Flax oil not only helps to promote regular bowel movements, but it also helps to reduce diaherrea.  This combination is amazing for anyone wishing to have more regular and comfortable bowel movements. 

Benefits of Flax Oil:
Helps transition to cardiovascular system
It is an anti-inflammatory factor
Has anti-cancer properties
Influencing blood management
helps to help

Flax Oil comes from flax seeds which are harvested from the same flax plant that produces the fibers used to make linen. Artists have been using linseed oil for centuries to make paints, mediums and varnishes. 
Flax Oil is widely used today, not only in artist materials, but also for a wide range of industrial applications and as a dietary supplement. 
Flax Oil dries relatively fast and produces a durable, flexible paint film. The term alkali refined, when used in relation to oils, refers to the way the oil is extracted from the seed and subsequently clarified. 
This article will describe the alkali refining process and how it produces a high quality oil for use in artist paints and mediums. 

Benefits and Uses

Alkali refined Flax Oil can be used effectively to make oil paint and oil painting mediums. Traditionally, cold pressed oils have been considered more effective for grinding paint because they have a higher acid number which tends to coat pigments more effectively than oils with lower acid numbers. 
Fortunately, today’s alkali refined oils are available with a variety of acid numbers to optimize wetting of pigment, drying, and yellowing. 
Alkali refining Flax Oil produces a light, straw-colored oil which is thought to yellow less over time than Flax Oil that have not been refined. 
This is due to the reduced number of free fatty acids and plant matter in the oil. 
Alkali refined oils are also consistent in their acid numbers, color, and cleanliness, making them a reliable choice for manufacturers. 
As dedicated as we are to alkali-refined Flax Oil, we continue to test a variety of oils for dry time, film integrity and color stability. 
In addition, we have also explored more traditional refining methods since these might present advantages or qualities often overlooked or lost in the drive for more efficient, industrial processes. 

Flax Oil
Gold-coloured flax oil is extracted from whole flax seeds, using presses specially developed for extracting oils from plants.
Flax oil requires careful handling: its high alpha-linolenic fatty acid (ALA) content makes it susceptible to deterioration and spoilage. 
Thus, keep flax oil cool and dark, ideally, in the refrigerator. 
Flax oil products typically cost more than either whole flax seeds or flax seed meal. While flax oil is an excellent source of ALA, it contains no lignans. The lignans have been stripped away with the seed.

Flax Oil. Bottled flax oil, purchased from health food stores or through the Internet, can be taken by the spoonful as a dietary supplement.
Flax Oil can also be used as your main oil in salad dressings, or on baked potatoes or other foods, instead of butter or margarine.
