NOTE: Safecoat Durostain Pro uses natural mineral pigments and slight variation in color may accordingly occur between batches. Always use material from the same batch for a specific job.
Because of wide variations in the way different woods accept stain, we particularly recommend that users always test in small, inconspicuous areas for appearance and compatibility before application to the entire surface. Surfaces to be stained with Safecoat DuroStain should be sound and cleaned or dirt, dust, grease, wax, silicone, soap and oil, and must be completely free of mold, mildew or fungus contamination. Cleaning with an odorless, dye-free, all-purpose cleaner like SafeChoice Super Clean is recommended. Previously painted or sealed surfaces will not accept stain readily. Consequently, stripping of old paint or sealer followed by rinsing and sanding will be required before application of Safecoat DuroStain to achieve maximum penetration from this product. Surface can be dampened with water to assist user in getting an even application. Porous woods with strong grain pattern can be tamed by using thinned (50% with water) application of Safecoat DuroStain Clear. Safecoat DuroStain can be used as a glaze over painted and sealed surfaces.

Intermix (boxing) all containers of the same color to ensure uniformity before applying.Apply with the grain using a brush or pad applicator always keeping a wet edge. Make sure towipe off any excess stain which does not penetrate into the wood.
Under normal conditions, Safecoat DuroStain Pro dries to touch in one hour and is re-coatable after two hours. Normal conditions include a dry surface, access to fresh air flow, moderate humidity and temperatures above 55 degrees F. Thick application, high humidity or conditions other than normal will cause Safecoat to dry and cure more slowly.
