Wood Stain Preparation Guide
Ensure that all surfaces are clean, dry and free from surface dirt, debris and sanding dust. Wooden surfaces should be vacuumed or wiped down after sanding to remove surface contaminates prior to applying Harmony stains.
Before using the wood stain, it should be thoroughly mixed. Shaking the container will ensure possible residue at the bottom is dissolved. Ensure you check the colour by conducting a test area. It’s advisable to also try subsequent coats of the final lacquer on top to ensure the finished colour is suitable. Variable substrates can change the appearance of the Harmony stain. Approve the wood stain colours on the substrate being used before beginning any project.
The Harmony Wood Stain coverage is approximately 8-12 square meters per litre dependent upon application method the size, alignment and surface quality of the item being coated. Harmony stains will dry within 10 minutes, however drying times may vary depending on room temperature and humidity. Please be aware that due to the nature and make up of our Pastel Colours that to retain Colour Retention Symphony Coatings recommend the over coating lacquer to be a Non-Yellowing type, ask our Technical Department for advice.
Wood Stain Application Guide
The surface should be pre-sanded with 150 – 220 Grit abrasive (depending on the kind of wood) prior to using to avoid problems such as uneven or patchy drying. 1 or 2 coats of Harmony stain can be applied to achieve the desired coverage and colour depth. The best results are achieved between 18℃ and 22℃ with good air movement and ventilation.
When Rag Wiping, use a soft, white, lint-free cloth. (Coloured or printed rags can bleed and cause discolouration). Apply the stain wet to the entire surface to avoid uneven dispersion and then remove any excess with a clean cloth. For bigger surfaces it may be suitable to apply the wood stain in sections. Always work along the grain when wiping off, and leave a minimum of 10 minutes to dry before applying finishing coats.
When Spraying, apply an even wet coat of Harmony stain and remove excess with a soft, white, lint-free cloth. When dry spraying ensure an even coat is applied and that the gun strokes follow the grain of the timber. Wiping can enhance the constancy of the colour and accentuate the grain definition and the natural properties of the wood.
Dipping can be controlled through submerging and wiping the excess stain off with a clean, white, lint-free cloth to achieve an even stain.
