COLOURS FOR LIFE Woodstain No. 560

The solvent-free machine-tintable COLOURS FOR LIFE Woodstain No. 560 is available in 65 different shades. It is satin matt and meets the DIN/EN standards for "Toy safety norm DIN EN 71-3" and "Sweat and saliva resistance DIN 53160".

The wood stain is suitable for interior and exterior application and provides a brilliant result and excellent weather resistance outdoors after just coats. Even the transparent variant No. 560-01 provides an excellent protection against external influences and even protects the wood against greying*. This gives the wood the care and protection it needs outdoors, while retaining the unique grain of the wood.

The product is easy to apply, fast-drying, almost odourless and low in emissions. It meets the criteria of the French VOC regulation, is AgBB-compliant and therefore especially recommended for living and sleeping areas.

* For the transparent variant, it is recommended to apply it 3 times outdoors.

  • Fast drying
  • Very good flow
  • High surface resistance

The COLOURS FOR LIFE Woodstain No. 560 cannot be applied only on wood. It can also be used for decorative purposes on walls which are coated with emulsion paints such as No.'s 321, 331 or 524. For this purpose, it is advisable to make the wall less absorbent so that the wood stain cannot dry too quickly during application.
