NaturalKoteTM Soy-Based Wood Stain is still the #1 choice of stain for many. Especially in the high production outdoor furniture, pergola, gazebo, log cabin and storage shed businesses.

It features almost no odor, fast tack free drying, and is very scratch and mar resistant which greatly reduces the need for touch up. Its superior flowing and penetrating technology allows it to be sprayed with little or no back brushing.

It is also non film forming which allows it to be re-coated with ease, and no need to strip for recoats, (unlike many traditional stains).

All colors shown approximate actual stain colors as accurately as possible. Colors will be influenced by lighting, texture, grain porosity, species of wood and when refinishing previously stained surfaces. A trial area is suggested before proceeding with your entire job. BEFORE STAINING….always test on the natural wood for color.

available in 1QT,1GAL, 5GAL, 55GAL drum & 275GAL tote.

Application Instructions

Temperature
The ideal room and product temperature is between 60-80 de- grees. Warmer room air temperatures may cause the coating to dry too quickly at the edges of the spray fan causing a dusty over spray. Cooler temperatures will slow drying times. The NaturalKote Stain temperature should be similar to the room temperature for best results. Substrate temperature should be consistent with the room and coating temperature. The siding must be dry and free of dirt or dust. Consistent temperatures of the spray room, coating and substrate are important for the proper application of Natu- ralKote Stain.

Equipment
Spray equipment must be maintained and working properly for best results. We recommend using a 210 Fine Finish tip, for furniture, or for sheds we recommend a 511 or 513 tip. Regular switch tips will leave slightly larger droplet particles which will take a little longer to dry . Equipment recommendations are general and can vary with the personal preferences and requirements of each person doing the application. We recommend that those doing the application experiment with different tips and find what works best for your situation and circumstances.

Application
When staining smooth planed wood surfaces, light sanding is recommended to open the wood pores, which results in better penetration and more uniform color overall. Apply one good coat putting on enough so that the wood gets all that it can soak up. Take care to avoid puddling. Recommended to topcoat with 1-2 coats Elite 501 Clear Sealer for outdoor applications. When staining rough sawn wood surfaces, two good coats are recommended. Back brushing to achieve maximum penetration. Begin by making sure your sprayer pressure is correct. Spray a test panel and lower the sprayer pressure until there are fluid streaks at the outside edge of the spray fan. Gradually increase the pressure until the streaks go away. Make a note of the pressure for future reference.

Different sprayers may require different pressures so be sure to test a new or different sprayer before spraying a barn. Apply the first coat with even, up and down strokes holding the spray fan in the center of each groove in the siding. Fan width and coating volume may vary a little depending on your tip and equipment but with the recommended tip sizes there should be very little difference. Wait until the first coat has dried then apply the second coat. NaturalKote Soy Based Wood Stain is also great for decorative concrete.

Ventilation
Ventilation of the spray room is critical for timely drying of the NaturalKote Stain. The spraying process of this waterborne stain creates moisture in the air that needs to be ventilated out of the room for quicker drying. Air movement needs to be through and out of the spray room, not just around the spray room. The best way to do this is to have a fresh air intake of some kind, even if it’s a window or door, and exhaust fans at the other end of the room blowing air to the outside. The more moisture you move out of the spray room with ventilation the quicker the coating will dry. The less air you move through the longer it will take to dry. Humid and colder air will slow drying times.
