These great before and after shots show another way to use Solid Colour Stain. In this case, the customer has chosen Fairest Ivory. First they used our solvent free paint remover, Dilunett, to strip the old coating and then neutralised with Net-Trol.
After leaving the furniture for a week to dry out completely, they then applied 2 coats of SCS in Ivory. We think the result is a lovely warm look which is different from a standard wooden garden furniture set.
Solid Colour stain is an all-in-one wood treatment and opaque finish which gives excellent protection from damage caused by UV exposure and rain. It has excellent adhesion and produces a strong but flexible film, this means it moves with the wood. It’s also guaranteed against peeling or flaking for 5 years on garden furniture.
Applying Solid Colour Stain
If your wood, as this example, has been previously coated then you need to strip that coating first with Dilunett. If your previous coating was also SCS then don’t fear, there’s no need to strip! You can just carry out a maintenance touch up. It’s easy to use and can remove your coating in as little as 5 minutes. Just remember that you do need to neutralise the wood straight after with Net-Trol to stop it from darkening. Then once you’ve left it to dry for a few days you can begin with your finish! Solid Colour Stain is super easy to apply, it’s just 2 simple coats with 3-4 hours in between for drying.
Maintaining garden furniture with Solid Colour Stain
SCS gives long lasting protection and when applied correctly should need very little maintenance – as little as once every 5 years! When maintenance is due though, there’s no laborious sanding needed! Just a quick clean with Net-Trol and once dry you can apply maintenance coats of SCS directly.
