General Finishes Water Based Wood Stain is formulated to have similar characteristics to oil based stain.
Water based stains are easy to apply, can be repaired, and are suitable for DIY or professional use.
The semi-gel formula contains the highest quality pigments to help you achieve great results on hard to stain woods.
These stains also have much better color depth and saturation compared to other brands of interior water based stain.
An advantage over oil based stain is the colors a more rich as more pigment can be added to water based stain. This allows for deeper color options and a true black wood stain.
Water based wood stain is low VOC, at less than 150 g/L in all colors, has a low odor and cleans up with soap and water.
General Finishes water based stains are among the best on the market.
