Stains are used to add colour or effects to bare solid wood or veneered surfaces. They also permit emphasis of the wood’s pore pattern or structure.
Stains can even be used to even out wood differences and delay wood ageing / discolouration. A basic distinction is made between dyestuff stains (transparent, penetrate deep into the wood) and pigment stains (opaque, sit on top and barely penetrate the wood).
A further distinction is between water-based stains, where water is used as a solvent , and reaction stains, where the stain reacts with a substrate . Our product range no longer includes stains with organic solvents.
Fields of application : all interior fittings with veneer and/or solid wood
