Exceptionally high UV and weather resistance

Pinja Color Plus is a high-solid wood stain, which can provide you with a maintenance interval twice as long as traditional wood stain.  The product creates a satin smooth surface and protects wood against moisture, sunlight, surface mold and dirt, preventing the cracking of wood.

Wide range of colors

Pinja Color Plus has two different bases: EPP-colorless and OPL tintable with Avatint colorants. The OPL base contains yellow and red oxide transparent pigments, which provide better resistance to sunlight and thereby a longer maintenance interval.

10 deeper and natural looking colors

Using Super Color tinting technology you can achieve deeper and more durable colors.  The Tikkurila Super Colors color card contains 10 intensive shades, which are based on yellow and red transparent pigments.

Super_Color_colorcard_ENG Super Color shades are based on yellow and red iron oxide pigments which enable warm, natural earthy shades in this color range. The size of transparent color pigment particles is only a tenth of ordinary color pigments, which enhances transparency and thus provides better resistance to sun light and longer maintenance interval.
