Price: $17.95 CAD
Epoxide Oil is a dicyclopentadiene copolymer linseed oil. It is a fast drying oil with good alkali resistance. The copolymer of linseed oil and dicyclopentadiene provides a new vehicle that can be added to paints low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs), yet provide low enough viscosities that make it easy to apply. Epoxide Oil is a reinforced oil that is excellent in varnishes and paints. Use it in place of natural and synthetic resinous mediums to speed up drying and improve film formation.
Dicyclopentadiene, abbreviated DCPD, is a chemical compound with the formula C10H12. At room temperature, it is a white crystalline solid with a camphor-like odor. Dicyclopentadiene is a monomer in polymerization reactions, for example as a copolymer with ethylene or styrene utilizing only the norbornene double bond.
Use turpentine or mineral spirits as a solvent for oil painting mediums made with Epoxide Oil.
