Water borne stain for giving colour and accentuation appearance to the wood. Available ex works in numerous colours for spray processes (TEKNOSTAIN AQUA 1996-00) or roller application (1996-20).
Water borne clear topcoat with excellent transparency and fast initial hardness. Gloss grade 10-60 still fully transparent with three coats. Outstanding flow properties even with a low application of 70 g/m².
Water borne pigmented topcoat with excellent drying and anti burnishing effect. Good blocking properties and stackability.
