TimberSoy Natural Wood Stain, Tint Base is an untinted base without colorant. Choose the Tint Base if you are having your dealer tint in store or when you wish to add our pre-measured Color Tint Packs.
Wood floor staining, wood deck staining, or wood staining in general has variables depending on the wood species and conditions. Your wood staining project may be as simple as a one coat, one standard color look, or is a project where darker or lighter color and variations are required.
You need the right product that gives you the ability and flexibility to meet your project objectives without breaking the budget or wasting valuable time. We've made it possible to lessen pigment load, increase pigment load, or even make your own custom wood stain colors on site to save you time and money.
Buy Our Wood Stain Base If:
The fill volume of our wood stain base will allow you to add up to (3) color packs per each one gallon stain tint base. Adding one of our premeasured color packs to each one gallon of wood stain base will produce our published TimberSoy wood stain colors. You may add less than one pack to lighten the color or you may add as many as (3) pigment packs which is our maximum recommendation to avoid exceeding the pigment volume concentration limit. Note: If adding (3) color packs, you should pour the stain base into a larger mixing container prior to adding the pigments as it may exceed the volume capacity of the one gallon container. If you add more than the standard (1) color tint pack, it will change the transparency from semi-transparent to semi-solid or even opaque if the substrate is very porous. The color packs may also be intermixed to create your own custom colors. If producing your own colors we recommend a range of 2 to 4 ounce per one gallon of tint base and never exceed 8 ounces per one gallon.
