STAIN ST7400

Wood Stain

Tough Stuff Wood Stain provides a long lasting, maintenance free coating to color and protect wood without disturbing the natural texture.

PRODUCT CHARACTERISTICS

EXCELLENT COLOR RETENTION: Pure organic oxide pigments and premix acrylic copolymers give Tough Stuff stains excellent long term color retention.

DEEP PENETRATION: Fast and deep penetration is achieved through advanced micro pigment technology. The resulting stain is locked into the wood and can not peel or flake like paint or conventional coatings.

ECONOMICAL AND COST EFFECTIVE: Excellent coverage rates and simple application give the Tough Stuff system an edge over even flat latex on rough surfaces for both price and appearance. Initial costs can pay back three-fold on the long term maintenance-free performance of Tough Stuff stains.

APPLICATION PROCEDURES

GENERAL

  • Do not open container until ready to use.

  • Apply the sealer with spray, brush, or roller making sure that the product is worked into the wood.

  • Pay special attention to end cuts and joints. On old severely weathered wood a second coat may be required to achieve color uniformity.


SURFACE PREPARATION

  • All surfaces must be clean and fully dry prior to applying the sealer.

  • New wood decks must be allowed to weather at least thirty (30) days before any application of the sealer or waterproofing material can be applied.

  • Always contact the Coatings International, Inc. technical department for recommendations whenever the ability of the stain to penetrate the substrate is in question.

PERFORMANCE TIPS

  • WATERPROOFING: Superior penetrating clear silicone rubber sealant is recommended to thoroughly saturate the surface to form an excellent water shed over the stain. This greatly extends the life of both the coating and the substrate.


SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

  • INSTALLERS must read, understand and follow all technical and informational literature for Tough Stuff Wood Stain prior to using this product.

  • For chemical emergencies, spills, leaks, exposure, or accidents in the US: CALL CHEMTREC 24 HOURS A DAY / 365 DAYS A YEAR 1-800-424-9300.
