Active Stain is water based and developed to produce grey special effect colours in oak wood and create a very unique colour. The product is non-corrosive.
Active Stain reacts with the tannic acid in the oak. The colour may vary after application depending on the concentration of tannin in the wood.
Please notice! The colour might change in the first period of time when exposed to UV light.
The wood must be clean, dry and free from dirt and grease.
Apply an even coat of the stain with a brush or a short-haired paint roller lengthwise along the grain.
Apply at least 1 litre of stain to 10 m2 of wood.
Clean tools in water after use.
Leave the stained surface to dry for approx. 24 hours at 20°C (the wood must be completely dry).
De-nib standing fibres with a fine abrasive polishing pad and vacuum clean the floor before the final basic treatment.
Finish the wood surface with WOCA oil, Colour Oil, Oil Lacquer or soap.
Attention: Depending on the amount of moisture and tannin in the oak, the colour may vary. Active Stain does not develop in sapwood.
