Woodoc Gel Stain for wood and porous surfaces
Woodoc Gel Stain is a modern easy-to-use concentrated stain for wood. Spreads easily and evenly when applied. Gel Stain is available in a range of colours in wood and decorative tints and comes in 250ml bottles (enough for approx. 5 square metres for 1 coat).
The advantage of the gels stain is that it does not run on the surface and gives clean lines with masked areas. This makes it both easier (and less messy) to work with and gives better results when masking areas. It is also easy to control the intensity of the colour by applying multiple coats (each coat is dry enough for another coat in about 1 minute).
The stained wood will need to be protected with a Woodoc solvent based or water-borne sealer and can be sealer once completely dry (typically after 1 hour of stain application).
Gel stain is not recommended for exterior use as the colour will fade with time in strong sunshine.
I was looking for a product that could dye the laminate surround for new, slightly darker kitchen doors. To my surprise, this product actually worked really well and slightly darkened the baseboard and surrounds to fit in well with the new units.
I was pleased how the coverage was. The stain was very easy to apply. I was very impressed with the density of the colour. I was using oak for the job and Antique Oak stain. The colour was perfect. I am looking forward to experimenting with the other colours in the range in the future.
