Pine tar – Nature’s own paint
If you care about your house
House paint made from pine tar is for everyone who cares about their house. Pine tar paint protects and preserves the facade by replenishing the wood with its own, naturally protecting substances. In addition you get a facade that will only grow more and more beautiful as time passes.
Can be painted over distemper paint!
With house paint made from pine tar, you can paint on wood previously painted with distemper paint.
A durable result
Painting and redecorating should be fun! Painting with house paint from Auson, you get a result that will stand the test of time. That makes it even more fun to paint!
As opposed to distemper paint, you can relax when leaning against a facade painted with pine tar paint. It won’t stain.
A natural product from the forest
House paint made from pine tar is a natural product. We make it from tar, straight from the forest. Pine tar paint replenishes the wood with its own, protecting substances, thus prolonging the life of your facade with many years.
Far between the repaintings!
House paint made from pine tar renders a durable result. Expect to wait at least six to eight years between repaintings.
“THE HOUSE HAS GOT A WINTER COAT”
You would be hard pushed to find a better location. Sun all day long and an unbeatable view out over the ocean. There is really only one drawback with this scene – the black paint of the facade has suffered from the effects of the constant sunlight and sea winds. However, Malin and Linus’s dream house in Vallda Sandö has now been given a new “winter coat” called Black Pine Tar.
– How long will the colour last?
We recommend that you repaint after 5–10 years. This time span depends on numerous factors including the climate, the wood quality and where you live. If there is algae or mildew on the wood, it is important that you remove this, since merely brushing off dirt and dust is not sufficient.

A thousand-year-old love story originating in the forest
From Viking longboats to modern houses and outdoor furniture. Pine tar is like jeans – a durable classic that never goes out of fashion. The Vikings were among the first to discover the fantastic properties of pine tar, which they used to protect their ships and building façades from rot. With Tjärlek by Auson, we have combined the impregnating properties of pine tar with modern, natural colours. The result is a paint that you are guaranteed to fall in love with. It is also a tribute to our forest.
It is difficult to find a more natural product than pine tar. It is quite literally a product of the forest. It is obtained from the dry distillation of resinous wood and, in the case of pine tar, pine wood. We use gum turpentine, which is also extracted from trees, as a solvent. The result is a paint that protects and strengthens the wood as well as giving it a beautiful, natural colour.
