Pre-Colour is a water-based stain used for the priming of unfinished or newly sanded interior woodwork i.e. floors, stairs, furniture and panels. Pre-Colour enhances the wood grain prior to a protecting oil or lacquer finish. Pre-Colour may be used on all types of wood.
How to use
Product, room and floor temperature must be between 15-25°C. Wood humidity must not exceed 12%. Ensure good ventilation during application and when drying. The wood must be newly sanded, use grit 100-120 for the final sanding. Vacuum thoroughly. Clean the wood with WOCA Intensive Wood Cleaner and leave it to dry for at least 8 hours before applying the stain.
- Thoroughly shake the container of Pre-Colour, both before and during use. Containers with different batch numbers should be mixed to avoid colour mismatch.
- Apply an even coat of undiluted stain along the wood grain with WOCA Applicator. A more uniform colour is obtained if the wet stain is polished into the wood using a polishing machine and a beige pad. Use at least 1 L of Pre-Colour per 10 m2. On vertically mounted wood, apply from top to bottom. Leave the surface to dry for 8-12 hours.
- Sand with a green pad to obtain a smooth surface and vacuum thoroughly.
- The surface must be finished using one of WOCA’s oils, following the product instructions.
