We offer the Morrells SCANDI range stains that have been inspired by Nordic design and consist of classic wood shades and contemporary pigmented colours. All are lightfast and suitable for wooden substrates.

Formulated to provide excellent grain definition and depth of colour while maintaining lightfastness. SCANDI pigmented stains have been designed with a longer drying time to better suit rag-on-rag-off applications, allowing greater control of colour and grain definition.

Suitable for tinting pre-catalyst lacquers up to a maximum of 5% by volume. For flooring applications, a minimum of 2 hours to dry must be given before sealing and topcoating.

Drying and recoat time will vary with temperature, humidity and absorption of the timber. SCANDI stains must be topcoated.

Preparation

  1. Ensure surface is clean, dry and free from old finishes, dust, dirt, oil and other contaminants.
  2. Pre-sand with 180 grit sand paper prior to stain application to avoid patchy or uneven drying.

Test patch

It is advisable to test the colour in an inconspicuous area or on a spare piece of substrate.

Note

The SCANDI range contains pigments that will settle with time. Ensure the stain is thoroughly mixed before use and at regular intervals to ensure consistent colour.

Hand staining

  1. Use a soft, white, lint-free cloth. Avoid using coloured or printed rags as dyes can bleed into the stain and cause discolouration.
  2. Apply the stain wet to the whole surface to avoid uneven penetration and then remove excess with a clean cloth. For larger surfaces it may be appropriate to apply the stain in sections.
  3. When removing excess stain, work with the direction of grain.

Spray application

  1. Spray apply an even wet coat
  2. Remove excess with a soft, white, lint-free cloth, working with the direction of the grain.
  3. Wiping off process can enhance the evenness of the colour and highlight the grain definition and the natural figuring of the substrate.

  2. Wipe off excess stain with a clean, white, lint-free cloth, working with the direction of the grain.
