Area Preparation

Surface must be clean and dry. Remove all dust, dirt, grease, oils, wax, and any other surface contaminants. Previous coatings must be completely removed. Prepare bare wood for staining by sanding in the direction of the grain with sandpaper until smooth. Use a tack cloth or vacuum cleaner to remove any dust prior to staining.

Application Details

Provide adequate ventilation. Stir well before and during use. DO NOT THIN. Apply with a clean cloth, high-quality synthetic brush, sponge, pad, roller, or by spray equipment. When using more than one container of the same color, intermix to ensure color uniformity. Allow stain to penetrate no longer than 5 minutes. Wipe off the excess stain with a soft, lint-free cloth. Do not allow stain to dry before wiping. To further increase color intensity, allow the stain to dry for 1 hour, and then apply a second coat. Protect with the appropriate water-based or solvent-based, clear topcoat.

Drying Time

Requires 2 hours of dry time before adding another coat, 2 hours of dry time before adding a top coat
