Wood Stains & Treatments are used on wood for preservation, sound-proofing, and fire resistance. Our colorants are compatible with all stain, coating, and CCA(Chromated Copper Arsenate) preservative formulations to meet building standards and codes such as ASTM E-90, NFPA 703,and UL Design No. V314.  OrcoStain™ wood stain dyes and wood finishing dyes are selected colorants chosen for their brilliance, clarity and ease of use. The WS Line offers minimal “grain raising” characteristics and excellent water and water-miscible co-solvent solubility properties. The SS Line is recommended in solvent-based systems and for tinting of clear solvent based finishes. Our technical staff is available to prepare custom formulations of both water and solvent soluble dyes and pigments.

Actual pigment and dye samples must be evaluated in a laboratory on medium to be colored in production for accurate shade and physical property results. Shades shown on print material and computer monitors are for general reference only as they are inherently inaccurate due to calibration variations and technical limitations of monitors and printers.
