Wood stain

  • Solvent-borne

Slightly thixotropic, alkyd-based transparent wood stain for outdoor use. Easy to apply and penetrates into the wood and forms no uniform film after the first application. Protects the wood against weather strain by slowing the effects from moisture, UV radiation of the sun and soiling.

New and previously with transparent wood stain treated wooden surfaces, e.g. log surfaces, walls, doors, window frames and fences. Not suitable on film-forming wood stains, nor in greenhouses, hotbeds or shelters for livestock. Not suitable for indoor use.

Surface preparation

Remove all loose matter, dirt and dust with wire-brush, scrubbing brush or scraper. Wash dirty and/or mildewed surfaces with RENSA FACADE facade cleaner. Rinse the surfaces thoroughly with water and allow to dry.


Stir WOODEX CLASSIC thoroughly before use and also now and then in the course of work. Apply by brush or spray. Apply the wood stain evenly and continuously on the whole length of the beam or timber to avoid making restart points. Treat end grain with special care. Priming with a wood preservative from the WOODEX series is recommended for untreated wood. It is not recommended that clear wood stain is used alone due to restricted weather resistance.

Application conditions

The surface to be treated must be dry. The moisture of the wood must be below 20 % of the dry weight of the wood. During the application and drying period the temperature of the ambient air, the surface and the wood stain shall be above +5 °C and the relative air humidity below 80 %.
