NR4000: A Water Based Stain Safe for You and the Environment
100% Water Based Stain made from a Plant Based Renewable Resource
Natural Resin 4000 Stain is made with a renewable plant based resin compound that is 100% biodegradable. The very small particle size of this unique resin structure in the NR4000 base allows for deep penetration into the wood cell structure and 100% color transparency of our fade resistant dye stain colors. Our water based stain’s rich, deep color penetration into the wood grain creates a color richness and beauty that rivals oil based stains. Unlike oil based stains, NR4000 Stain has zero hydrocarbons or ethylene based solvents making it non-flammable, HAPs-Free and ultra-low VOC emissions. Our water based stain is fast drying, cleans up with soap and water, and makes storage and disposal safe and simple.
A Water Based Stain that gives the Finisher Ultimate Flexibility
Natural Resin 4000 Stain in the Clear-Base color can be used to pop the grain figure and color of domestic and exotic hardwoods similar to a coat of dewaxed blond shellac. NR4000 Stain Clear-Base can also be used as a vehicle for creating your own custom stain color by adding water soluble dyes and pigments to the clear base.
Natural Resin 4000 Stain can be applied by spray, brush, roller, or wiping. Our water based stain has a user friendly open time and excellent re-wetting properties which allows for easy control of lapping lines, a fairly common problem with other water based stains. This allows for an exceptionally even and consistent finish comparable to oil based stains.
We recommend that you do not let our water based stain puddle and dry on the surface during spray, brush, or roller applications. Any excess stain should be wiped off with a clean cloth before it can dry on the surface without penetrating into the wood surface.
Natural Resin 4000 Stains are 100% compatible with all Target Coatings water based wood finishes and must be topcoated with a clear finish to maintain the color and durability of the water based stain coat.
