Linseed oil is a vegetable oil that's different from other oils through its high iodine value. The iodine value is a determing factor for the drying of the oil.
Linseed oil is the fastest drying oil in the range of vegetable oils.

Oliefabriek Lichtervelde produces linseed oil in a natural way.
The linseed is heated up to about 70°C, which improves the manufacturer's ability to remove the oil.
Linseed oil is pressed out of the linseed by presses.

The majot part of the oil is carried in bulk to the customer (both by road haulage and by sea transport).
Beside the bulk deliveries Oliefabriek Lichtervelde has specialised in filling 190 kg drums.

Linseed oil has three main applications:
  • Paint
  • Printing inks
  • Linoleum

Linseed oil is also used in the production of soaps.
