Approximately 400 square feet per gallon. Spreading rate will vary significantly depending on application method, porosity and texture of wood.
Allow the stain to dry 2 to 3 hours before applying protective finish. Apply when the air and surface temps are between 60 and 90°F and humidity is between 30% and 70%. Do not apply below 55°F. Keep product from freezing.
Application tools and hands can be cleaned with soap and water.
The wood surface must be clean, dry and free from dirt, wax, grease or glue.
New Wood: Lightly wet the surface with water to raise the wood grain. Once the grain has been raised, allow the wood to dry thoroughly. Sand the surface smooth and remove all dust particles with a clean cloth. Always sand in the direction of the woodgrain.
Previously Finished Surfaces: Restore to bare wood by completely removing the old finish. Lightly wet the bare surface with water to raise the wood grain. Once the grain has been raised, allow the wood to dry thoroughly. Sand surface smooth and remove all dust particles with a clean cloth.
Application: Stir thoroughly before and during application for even distribution of color.
1. Apply a liberal, even coat of stain with a nylon/polyester brush, foam brush, staining pad or cloth or sprayer. Maintain a wet edge.
2. While still wet, remove excess with a clean cloth, wiping the direction of the woodgrain. To avoid lap marks, stain to the end of an area. Never stop in the middle of a surface area.
3 If color penetration is uneven, re-wet the surface with more stain and wipe excess with a clean cloth, blending the uneven areas. If stain dries too fast, reduce stain approximately 5% to 10% with water.
4. For added color depth, apply additional coats of stain after the first coat has dried thoroughly.
Large areas, such as floors, may require two people. Complete small sections with one person applying the stain and the other person wiping the stain.
Thinning is not recommended; however, a small amount of water may be added to provide a longer wet edge.
