Blue Capri Wood Stain - Where to use
A professional wood stain suitable for staining all types of solid and semi solid wood floors & general wood surfaces. It can be used to change the look of any type of wood surface that is sealant free, clean, dry & dust free. The wood stain is just a colour so it can be used for staining exterior furniture and exterior woodwork as long as a suitable exterior sealer will be used to overcoat it.

Blue Capri Wood Stain - How to use
You do not need to be a professional and you do not need special training to use a wood stain. Assess the surface, make sure that the wood is sealant free, dry and clean. If there is some type of sealer on the surface, remove it with sandpaper. Start with 40 grit sandpaper, go to 60, then 80 and then 100 grit. Vacuum well and start the staining process. You will need a cloth and a pair of gloves.
Soak the cloth in the stain and start rubbing it along the fibre of the wood
Apply an even pressure all over the surface to ensure even absorption
If some areas are darker/brighter than the rest, go over one more time
Allow time to dry, 2-5 hours, before applying a sealant over it
Use a two pack water based floor lacquer if you are looking for a natural finish
Avoid stain drippings & avoid touching any other surfaces that does not require staining
If you are staining garden furniture, seal it with an "exterior” sealer
If you are staining large floor surfaces, you should use a floor buffer
Blue Capri Wood Stain - Coverage
You should easily achieve 20-30 sq meter of floor per 1L of stain. The product can cover over 50 sq meter of floor if used in conjunction with a low speed floor buffer. The type of surface that you plan to stain, the quality of the sanding and the skill of the applicator will determine the final coverage area. Always remove any excess stain from the floor. The wood stain is not a paint and it will not create perfect blue surfaces. It will only add a hint of blue in the grain of the wood
