Wood Stain by the Quart

What is Wood Stain?

At Lubricite, we sell wood stain by the quart, which is available in a variety of colors. But what is wood stain? Wood stain is a type of paint that is used to color wood that is comprised of colorants dissolved and/or suspended in a vehicle or solvent. The “vehicle” refers to water, alcohol, a petroleum distillate, or a finishing agent such as shellac, lacquer, varnish and polyurethane.

Pigments and/or dyes are largely used as colorants in most stains. The initial application of any paint or varnish is absorbed into the substrate similarly to stain, however the binder from a stain resides mainly below the surface. While the pigment remains near the top or at the surface. Colored or stained finished do not typically deeply penetrate the pores of the wood. They might actually largely disappear when the finish deteriorates or is removed.

Wood stain is typically composed of the same three primary ingredients as paint, which is pigment, solvent, and binder. However, the mixes are different, since wood stain is primarily solvent, then pigment, and just a small amount of binder. The overall aim of a wood stain is to add color to the surface, while leaving some of the substrate (wood) still visible. Once this application is finished, transparent varnishes or surface films are applied. A general principle of wood stain is that they do not provide a durable surface coating or film. However, since the binders are from the same class of film-forming binders that are used in paint, there is a build-up of film. Lubricite manufacturer wood stain by the quart and the end result of our product is unparalleled on the market.
