Controlled Erosion Stain
Grimes & Sons Controlled Erosion Stain is a low VOC, wax and oil free, water based stain. It is designed to give a genuine, weathered appearance to raw exterior grade timber, to fade over time, and to let the natural grey of the timber take over. It will reduce tannin bleeding and water pick up after the first coat. Controlled Erosion Stain works especially well on mixed species timber, as it hides the underlying colour.
Coverage is ≈ 10 m²/L, depending on timber porosity and application method. Ensure surface is clean, dry, free from wax, grease, dust, etc.. Stir thoroughly before and during use with a flat paddle. Apply 2 coats with a clean brush, roller or spray gun, to both sides of the timber. Do not apply in temperatures below 10℃ or above 30℃. Allow 24 hours drying time. Brushes and equipment should be cleaned thoroughly with water. Timber has natural faults and features. Always make your own test on part of the job which does not show to determine suitability for your specific use.
Provide adequate ventilation during use. Keep out of reach of children. Keep container closed when not in use.
