Reactive stain is a reactive aging stain based on natural and reactive colorants. Reactive stain is especially suitable for aging woods containing tannin. After reaction time, the reactive stain should be finished with oil or waterborne finishes.
» Reacts with tannin in the wood and creates a unique finish.
» Endless possibilities in combination with colored oils.
» Color intensity can easily be adjusted with Reactive stain Clear.
Make sure that all old finish coats are completely removed and that the wood is free from dust and other dirt. Can be used on sanded, planed, and brushed wood. Pre-wetting the wood can reduce the risk of overlapping.
Stir and shake well before and during use. Apply reactive evenly stain in the direction of the wood fiber, even out afterwards. Reactive stain can be applied using a brush or spray gun and subsequently smoothened with a brush or mop.
Reactive stain can “pop” the grain so it is suggested that you smoothen the surface after the full reaction time with a buffing pad. Afterwards, the surface should be made dust free, prior to finishing with an oil or waterborne finish from the Ciranova® product line. Please contact Ciranova® Technical Support for information about using a waterborne finish.
