FIELDS OF APPLICATION

Water based penetrating stain with slight sealer protective features for all interior/exterior wood surfaces. EcoCer Stain is a custom tinting formula base, to permit correct color correction on application for any type of wood species. Product is tinted with earth oxide tints for permanent color stability with excellent UV protection and environmental durability. EcoCer Stain penetrates the cellulose fibers of all types of woods, deciduous and conifer, thus creating luminous color depth and intensity, not typical for most water-based stains.

EcoCer Stain diluted according to instructions can be mixed with EcoCer Varnish, Matte, Satin or Exterior to work as a wood conditioner, or pre-sealer, to assist in achieving color depth and even stain applications. EcoCer Stain permits excellent touch-up capability for repairs.

EcoCer Stain can be applied to porous surfaces including slaked lime plasters and lime wash, for special decorative effects applied to wood. Product is non-yellowing.

PRODUCT FEATURES

An acrylic water based stain that contains very low solvent content, providing low VOC content, is fast drying, with excellent color penetration. EcoCer Stain is a professional use product for floor finishes, high quality cabinet finishes, is concentrated and non-yellowing. Application method is typically by brush, and in light color, higher dilutions, may be applied by sprayers. EcoCer Stain is a mono component, concentrated product, which is diluted with water for application, providing excellent coverage with 2 – 3 coats. Coverage per square foot is average typical for most water-based stains. EcoCer Stain can be used residentially and commercially for wet sink and bar areas, on any type of wood product, without sustaining wood discoloration by water penetration if EcoCer Stain is properly sealed and protected from exposure to water. For low VOC content varnish with excellent resistance to water damages, use EcoCer Varnish Matte or Satin varnishes.

EcoCer Stain can be diluted with water for multiple use functions and can be tinted with natural oxide earth tints and 0% VOC colorants to offer esthetic color options with minimal impact to the environment and to provide toxic free air quality for indoors. EcoCer Stain is an environmental low impact paint material as described in the Eco Category description. This product is ideal for use in homes, schools, and hospitals and work sensitive areas.

APPLICATION CYCLE INSTRUCTIONS

BRUSH APPLICATIONS | SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS

1ST COAT     Apply EcoCer Varnish as a conditioner prior to applying 1st and 2nd coat stain color (see BRUSH & SPRAY APPLICATION notes). Dilute EcoCer Stain with 10% – 50% average, maximum 150% water, per one (1)-liter bucket of EcoCer Stain. Always wet wood surfaces with sufficient water to allow stain to be applied on a damp surface, not a wet surface. Apply stain with a high quality brush in an even and constant pattern, and remove product with absorbent cotton cloths to achieve the desired color depth. Water based wood stain must be removed typically within 2 – 3 minutes, depending on existing humidity and temperature. Regardless, stain must be removed prior to any surface drying that occurs or this will require the adjustment or removal of the stain application by aggressive means. Allow to dry for at least 4 hours before applying 2nd coat. Wash paint brushes immediately with soap and water after completion of use.

2ND & 3rD COAT     Repeat steps for 1st coat application as necessary to achieve desired color depth.

PAINT SPRAYERS | simple instructions

1ST COAT     Follow application instructions as indicated above in the BRUSH APPLICATIONS. Instead of using a brush for application, a fine spray application may be possible when using light color stain applications. Sprayers cannot be used to achieve dark color staining.

2ND COAT     Follow instructions for 1st coat above.

SPRAY TIP USAGE     EcoCer Varnish can be applied using an airless sprayer. Apply stain product with a # 0.011 – 0.013 size spray tip. Always use new spray tips for starting a paint job for best results. This will also conserve the amount of paint necessary to complete the job.

BRUSH & SPRAY APPLICATIONS

Before starting application of stain, perform tests on the same wood sample and species type that has been used for the project or installed on the construction site. Always test stain coverage with minimal water dilution prior to increasing dilution. Several tests will be required to assure that diluted stain will match to ‘control sample’. To ensure even coverage and absorption it is advised to apply tinted conditioner to your wood as your 1st Coat application; dilute EcoCer Varnish 300% with water (3 liters water), then adding 25% – 50% EcoCer Stain tinted product (250ml – 500ml stain), mixing into the diluted varnish formula. This dilution helps create an ideal wood conditioner for applying even stain finishes, especially dark stain colors, and helps reduce the number of stain coats required to achieve the ‘control sample’. See CONDITIONER SOLUTION MIX below for easy view of formula.

MIXING STAIN & WATER

Most of our paint and varnish formulas are concentrated and require water to be added to them for proper use. This process means we can sell more coverage in an economical package that decreases the cost for transport, reduces the carbon footprint, helping the your pocket book and the environment.

Mix stain and water carefully with a paint paddle.

DRYING TIME

Allow a drying time between coats of at least 4 hours. With lower temperature and humidity more time may be needed. Allow at least hours 8 – 12 hours drying time before applying additional coats of lime paint, sealers, or varnish.

TOOLS

Apply EcoCer Stain with a brush, or with an appropriate sprayer and sprayer tip. New sprayer tips should be used to prevent product waste and provided for a more perfect finish.

CONSUMPTION/COVERAGE

Approximately 2,600 ft2 / 240 mt2 – 4,000 ft2 / 370 mt2 per 10 liters bucket diluted with 10% – 50% water dilution. Determine exact consumption by performing a test on the surface to be treated.

PACKAGING

Plastic buckets of 1, 2.5 and 10 liters.

APPLICATION CYCLES ON DIFFERENT TYPES OF BASES

Make sure base is solid, dry and well cleaned, prepared with skill. It is recommended to observe the rule VOB DIN 18 363, Part C, paragraph 3.

FLOORS

STAIN & VARNISH

Prior to each application of EcoCer Stain on wood, conditioner or diluted stain, the wood surface to be stained must always be pre-wetted with water; just enough to create a wet/damp surface. The dampened area should not exceed the capacity for the applicator to apply the stain within a short time period.

APPLYING CONDITIONER

When using a stain conditioner, which is highly suggested for any stain coloring on wood, and imperative on dark stain tinting, hand wiping off the conditioner is not recommended. It is important not to over-load the floor or allow puddles to sit on the surface after application of colored conditioner. Apply in an even and consistent manner the conditioner, applying onto damp wood as one moves across the floor. Use a dry brush when necessary, which will help remove excess by extending the conditioner over a larger area, without adding more liquid product. Wipe the brush off often with a clean rag when using this approach. Allow conditioner to dry completely for 8 – 12 hours before attempting to apply the 1st coat of diluted stain color onto the wood.

APPLYING STAIN

Pre-wet floors prior to applying stain, even if a conditioner has been applied. A simple solution is to damp mop; use wet/dampened rags laid flat on the floor and use a floor wand or damp sponge mop, placed in the center of the rag, applying slight pressure, move the dampened rags over the surface of the wood to evenly moisten the surface. Using a simple hand pump garden sprayer is another excellent method to dampen wood. Remove excess water using a damp mop and rags as described above or with just damp rags. Applying excessive water will create uneven staining and/or blotching.

Always apply stain in runs of approximately 2 – 3 feet wide, or as can be reached by hand and wiped off without placing knee pads or hands on the stained area that is to be wiped. Always slightly over-wet the area beyond what boards will be stained so as to remove any stain that may fall beyond the determined area to be stained. Staining floors can only be applied by brush. Begin to apply stain with a brush only, on an area as is possible to apply and wipe off within a very short time period; not more than 2 – 3 minutes maximum. Always wipe stain off moving in the direction of the wood grain. Wiping must be carefully done using rags to remove excess stain. It is imperative to avoid over-lapping with color stain. To help control overlaps using a water based stain, it is recommended to wet both the unstained wood and the just previously stained wood with water for each run just completed. It should be understood that previously stained wood boards require a few minutes to permit the stain to dry, before applying water again. Usually, finishing a run from one end of the room to the other, before moving back to the starting point is enough time to permit re-wetting of the stained boards. When applying water onto newly stained areas, overlap with water just enough to permit stain overlapping being applied by brush, to be removed. Do not re-wet the entire just stained. To match the stain color density on the previously stained boards, or runs, and to remove overlaps, use a series of rags; a rag completely damp with stain, a rag partially damp with stain, and a clean rag. These series of types of rags, will permit control to adjust color penetration and color evenness when staining the wood. Wipe off with light but constant pressure to manipulate the stain to achieve an even color, and using a series of all those rags that will best create the desired results.

Applying stain on a wood floor is a group project that requires usually 3 persons minimum. All 3 persons need to work in tandem and closely together, in close proximity, moving at a very fast pace. Speed is essential to wetting the wood, applying the stain, and wiping off the stain.

Please determine your dilutions for color depth by testing on same wood type and color prior to begin applying stain. Water based stains will always need to be diluted with water, at least 10% per volume. Multiple stain colors can be used to achieve rich and dynamic coloration. Allow each stain color to completely dry before applying a new stain color.

Once the desired tone or color stain has been achieved, which may require 1 coat conditioner, 1 coat of stain for light colors, 2 coats of stain for dark colors, allow the stained floors to completely dry for at least 8 – 12 hours prior to applying any additional treatments including lime wash, BioCalce Classico, or EcoCer Varnish.

STAIN & LIME WASH

Staining wood and applying lime wash to create aged or ceruse finishes is a technique that was developed by ROMA in 2009 to permit on-site application of ceruse finishes without the need to apply pre-finished flooring systems. This permits construction schedules to not be affected by the installation of pre-finished floor systems that can easily be damaged during construction processes.

Apply stain as indicated in section STAIN & VARNISH.

APPLYING LIME PAINT

Dilute BioCalce Classico, tinted lime paint, diluted with water 120% and mix thoroughly. Apply the lime wash with a brush, following the direction of the grain, and allow floor to completely dry for at least 8 – 12 hours.

Remove the lime wash using a buffer with a Maroon pad, so as to completely expose the wood grain, removing all excess lime products. Once the room has been buffed, vacuum immediately all excess lime dust so that there is not created excessive amounts of dust to be spread throughout the other floors or house. It is suggested to vacuum several times to remove excess dust. After vacuuming it is suggested to use lightly dampened rags and gently pass over the floor, so as to remove small particles of lime dust. Do not over-wipe or use excessive water during this process so not to damage or remove excessive amounts of Limewash that remain in the grain of the wood.

Lime paints or any alkaline finish material cannot be painted with any type of varnish without being consolidated! All lime treated floors or cabinets must be treated with TerraMare Velatura before EcoCer Varnish can be applied.

APPLYING CONSOLIDATOR

TerraMare Velatura is a silossanic consolidator ideal for application on lime products that will be sealed with EcoCer Varnish. TerraMare Velatura also acts as a decorative glaze that can be color tinted. The result is that using stain, Limewash, tinted consolidator, and tinted varnish, the options are unlimited to create color hues and tone with unlimited richness and depth for wood finishes.

Pre-dilute the consolidator with water, 300% – 550% by volume, 1 part product / 3 – 5.5 liters water. Apply the consolidator with a brush covering an area that can be applied and removed within a maximum of 3-5 minutes, exactly like the application and removal of stain for 1st and 2nd coats as indicated above. Once a determined area has been covered, remove the excess consolidator with a damp rag, moving always in the direction of the wood grain. After 2 – 3 pulls with a clean rag, working within arm’s length, turning the rag over often to a new side, rinsing and changing rags as needed, remove the amount of glaze as needed to achieve visual effect desired. Rinse the rags out as often needed, thoroughly, and continue the process to wipe off TerraMare Velatura, not allowing the consolidator to dry prior to removal of all excess material. For less glazing effect, repeat the process a 2nd time so that very little hazing is visible using only a clean, unused rag.

As with stain coloring, overlaps of consolidator from one board to another will appear very visible after drying, and care must be given to remove overlaps with a clean rag.

After drying, approximately 1 – 2 hours, inspect for overlaps from consolidator, and remove them during this time period by hand, using a maroon pad or green pad, sponge, and/or a rag, so as to create an even effect for coverage. Failure to remove consolidator within the time limit specified will result in the overlap to be permanent, and will prove to be very difficult to remove glazing without the risk of causing damage to the stain color or lime paint finish underneath. Allow TerraMare Velatura to completely dry for at least 8 – 12 hours before commencing with application of EcoCer Varnish Matte or Satin varnishes.

CABINETS & FURNITURE

Use the same application methods as described above for floors. Sponge mops or wands cannot be used to finish cabinets. Cabinets and furniture require special attention when applying stains, and all applications and removals must be done strictly by hand. Use sprayers for stain applications only after sample testing has been performed to determine if this method will be sufficient to create the stain color and effect desired.
