Well…from my use it gelled up in the can like a wax from exposure to air, which, of course, contains free oxygen. I have never looked into the chemical content. The exterior of my finish buffs up to a warm luster after a couple of weeks after the application similar to wax. If tung oil has a “relatively hard film”, is has never been apparent in my use.

My caveat is tung oil should be capped back up with as little air (oxygen) as possible or it will gel up.
