Fiddes Wood Floor Stains are a range of penetrating oil-based stains that are specially formulated for application onto wooden flooring. They are designed to enhance the natural beauty of the wood while providing a durable and long-lasting finish. These stains are specifically recommended for use under Fiddes Hard Wax Oil, which is a popular choice for finishing wooden floors.
By applying Fiddes Wood Floor Stains before the Hard Wax Oil, you can achieve a desired color or shade on your wooden flooring. The stains penetrate deeply into the wood, highlighting its grain and providing an even and consistent coloration. This creates a beautiful and customized look for your wooden floors.
It’s important to properly prepare the wooden flooring before applying the stains. This typically involves sanding the surface to remove any imperfections or previous finishes, ensuring a clean and smooth surface for the stain to adhere to. Follow the instructions provided by Fiddes for the best results.
Once the stains have been applied, they can be sealed and protected with Fiddes Hard Wax Oil, which will further enhance the appearance of the wood and provide a durable, water-resistant finish.
Dry Time: 6-8 hours at room temperature. Coverage: 14 sqm per litre, depending on substrate and method of application. Coats: 1 coat – further coats will deepen color/shade. Thinners: Nitro Thinners. Recommended for use on: Floors.
To achieve the best results, it is important to properly prepare the wooden substrate before applying the stains. This involves sanding the surface in stages, starting with a medium sandpaper (120 grit) and progressing to a medium/fine grade (180-220 grit). Sanding should be done in the direction of the wood grain to ensure a smooth and even surface. It is essential to remove any blemishes and glue residue and thoroughly clean the surface to remove all traces of sanding dust.
Before application, stir the contents of the stain well and always check the shade to ensure it matches your desired color. Take a clean, lint-free cotton cloth or sponge and apply the stain in the direction of the wood grain. Remove any excess stain immediately with a separate, clean absorbent cloth, following the grain pattern. To achieve a uniform color, wipe evenly and blend the stain over the entire surface area, applying a degree of pressure when doing so. Allow the stain to dry, and it is not necessary to sand between coats. Additional coats can be applied to deepen the color or shade as desired.
It’s important to note that the Fiddes Wood Floor Stains are recommended for use on floors. Following the application of the stains, you may consider sealing and protecting the wood with a suitable finish, such as Fiddes Hard Wax Oil, for enhanced durability and water resistance.
