STAIN
Storage:
Protect from frost/freezing.
Where to use:
Properly prepared interior wood substrates such as floors, doors, trim, paneling, cabinets,
or furniture.
Preparation:
Surfaces should be clean, dry, sound and free from dirt, dust, and surface contaminants.
Sand substrates first, using either fine sand paper, or a fine sanding pad. DO NOT use
steel wool. Always sand in the direction of the natural grain. For staining hardwood floors,
we recommend a lamb’s wool applicator. Remove sanding dust with a lightly waterdampened cloth, or tack rag. Always prepare a test sample first on a scrap piece of wood
before you begin to ensure a sound technique and to achieve a greater understanding of
product performance. Although most stains share some similarities and characteristics, all
vary slightly from one to another.
Application:
Do not thin. Stir gently before use and continue stirring during application. Intermix if
using multiple containers to ensure color uniformity. May be applied using a clean cotton
rag, or cloth. If using a brush, maintain a wet edge and do not allow the product to
puddle. Remove excess stain with a cotton cloth. Use a lamb’s wool applicator for floors.
Darker tones can be achieved by allowing the product to sit before wiping. A second coat
may be applied after 20-30 minutes to achieve a deeper, richer look. Allow 2-4 hours
before applying a clear coat. Finish with a minimum of two coats of WoodShield varnish.
Avoid applying at temperatures below 41°F (5°C).
Clean up:
Use warm soapy water.
Coverage:
Maximum spread rate is 100-125 sq. ft. per quart, or 400-500 sq. ft. per gallon depending
on substrate porosity.
Health & Safety:
Avoid overexposure to skin and contact with eyes. Rinse off with water. Keep out of reach
of children.
