First impregnation treatment with Pinja Wood Stain TCW

 

Pinja Wood Stain TCW is a water-borne, fast-drying translucent wood stain, which penetrates deeply into the wood and protects it against moisture, sunlight and dirt. It also decreases the risk of the wood cracking. Pinja Wood Stain TCW is tintable in the Akvi Tone tinting system.

The viscosity of the Pinjalac Solid Dipp is low. The lacquer is ready to use in flow coating and dipping applications. Pinjalac Solid Dipp  penetrates well into the wood pores of e.g. oak and meranti.
