ZAR Wood Stain can be applied to all varieties of wood, both unfinished
and previously finished, and can be used on surfaces that have been
previously painted or varnished to achieve a wood grain eﬀect. ZAR Wood
Stain brings out the beauty of wood on interior surfaces such as
cabinets, floors, paneling, antiques, doors, wood trim and unfinished
furniture. Steel Doors or Painted Surfaces: In addition to wood doors,
ZAR Wood Stain when used with the ZAR Graining Tool is excellent for
making steel doors look like real wood. Grained Embossed Surfaces
(Fiberglass, Steel or Composite): Because fiberglass doors have a wood
grain embossed in their surface, ZAR Wood Stain can be used to quickly
and easily bring to life the doorâ€™s real wood look.
Stains and clear finishes will not adhere to shellac or lacquer. They should be removed before refinishing.

Wood: Make sure the surface is clean and dry. Sand with #120 or #150
grit sandpaper until the surface feels smooth. Remove sanding dust with a
tack rag or a cloth dampened with paint thinner.
Painted Surfaces : Remove all dirt, oil, wax, polish and grease with
turpentine or suitable solvent. Sand lightly in the direction of the
grain to remove gloss and wipe away sanding dust with a tack rag.
Embossed Surfaces (Fiberglass, Steel or Composite): Remove the door
from its hinges by removing the hinge pins, or you can work with the
door mounted. In either case, make sure the surface is clean and dry
before beginning. It is helpful to wipe the surface lightly with a cloth
dampened with denatured alcohol or paint thinner to remove dust
If you scrape, sand, or remove old paint, you may
release lead dust. LEAD IS TOXIC. EXPOSURE TO LEAD DUST CAN CAUSE
SERIOUS ILLNESS, SUCH AS BRAIN DAMAGE,ESPECIALLY IN CHILDREN. PREGNANT
WOMEN SHOULD ALSO AVOID EXPOSURE. Wear a NIOSH- approved respirator to
control lead exposure. Clean up carefully with a HEPA vacuum and a wet
mop. Before you start, find out how to protect yourself and your family
by contacting the National Lead Information Hotline at 1-800-424-LEAD or
log on to www.epa.gov/lead.
DO NOT THIN. Stir ZAR Wood Stain
thoroughly before and during application. Using a clean lint-free cloth,
wipe ZAR Wood Stain on evenly in the direction of the grain of the
wood. Wipe off excess wood stain using a clean lint-free cloth. Let the
stain dry for 3 to 4 hours. If greater depth of color is desired, apply a
second coat of ZAR Wood Stain and repeat drying and buﬃng steps. Allow 3
hours drying time. Protect your stain by top coating with ZAR
Grained or Painted Surfaces : Wipe on ZAR Wood
Stain with a lint-free cloth, and then use a brush, cloth or graining
tool to achieve a wood grain eﬀect. Allow ZAR Wood Stain to dry at least
48 hours before applying a protective coat of ZAR Polyurethane Clear
Grained Embossed Surfaces (Fiberglass, Steel or
Composite): Stir ZAR Wood Stain thoroughly. Using a lint free cloth,
wipe on a light, uniform coat of ZAR Wood Stain. Use a dry soft-bristled
brush to remove any streaks and enhance the wood grained look of the
door. If your first coat is too light, wait 48 hours and wipe on a
second coat. As with the first coat, remove any streaks with a dry soft-
bristled brush. Do not sand between coats. Sanding can damage the
fiberglass surface. After allowing the stain to dry 48 hours, complete
the job by applying ZAR Polyurethane Clear Wood finish. For the exterior
side of doors exposed to prolonged or extreme sunlight, apply ZAR
Exterior Polyurethane. For doors protected by overhangs and porches, and
for the inside of doors, apply ZAR Interior Polyurethane. Use a
quality, natural bristle brush or use ZAR Polyurethane spray cans. If
using a brush, apply a thin coat of ZAR Polyurethane by flowing on the
material in the direction of the grain. If using ZAR Polyurethane Spray,
apply a thin even coat. Apply a second coat, if needed, after 12 hours.
Allow 24 hours drying time before rehanging the door. Steel Door
Instructions Create a wood grain effect on steel doors with ZAR Wood
Stain and the ZAR Wood Graining Tool. ZAR is the only wood stain widely
available with enough pigment and body to be used as a graining medium.
Before you begin to grain your door, practice on a painted metal or
painted wood surface until you feel comfortable with the graining tool.
When you begin to grain your door, wipe a thin, uniform coat of ZAR Wood
Stain on the surface and let stand for about 15 minutes. Beginning at
the top of the surface to be grained, draw the graining tool down,
moving it at a constant speed. While drawing the graining tool, use a
rocking motion to create a natural heartwood appearance. Do not allow
the grooves of the graining tool to flood with stain. If you are not
satisfied with your results, wipe off what you have applied using a
cloth dampened with mineral spirits and start over. After allowing at
least 48 hours drying time, apply a thin, uniform coat of ZAR Wood Stain
over the newly grained surface in the direction of the grain. The
darkness of the finish depends on the amount of stain applied. Allow
this coat to dry thoroughly for at least 48 hours. Apply ZAR
Polyurethane Clear Wood Finish. For the exterior side of doors exposed
to prolonged or extreme sunlight, apply ZAR Exterior Polyurethane. For
doors protected by overhangs and porches, and for the inside of doors,
apply ZAR Interior Polyurethane. Allow the clear finish to dry for 24
hours before putting the door into service.
