Rubio Monocoat Precolor Aqua is a unique water based stain that inhibits the ambering normally associated with applying clear finishes to wood; especially oils. It also contains a small amount of blue/green tint that tends to cancel or mute the pink normally found in oaks.
When you apply any color to wood, the color is modified by the underlying wood color; colors appear less “true” due to this effect. The use of Pre-Color Aqua White 01 can lead to a purer color when the finish is applied. As with any finish product, sample to make sure you achieve the desired result. Also be aware that this is a water-based finish and must be applied evenly to achieve a good result.
