The following is a reply to an email request for information about the difference between 100% tung oil and polymerized tung oil.
Polymerized tung oil isn't a synthetic its generally heated tung oil, but some will use chemicals. Tung oil polymerizes naturally as it dries, but the heating process to polymerize tung oil takes care of the polymerizing in advance so the polymerized tung oil will dry faster and harder and is more viscous. The polymerized tung oil gives a gloss finish.
