About Saman water based wood stains.

SAMAN’s introduction of a revolutionary water based wood stain was first launched in the Canadian marketplace in 1998. The product quickly became entrenched in the Canadian wood stain DIY market. With ever changing environmental laws here in the US, it was only natural that SAMAN water based wood stains would transverse the border to find a new home and marketing opportunity.

SAMAN water based wood stains are the easy to use, easy to work product that was designed for you! Color choices are limited only by your imagination. Because of the unique formulation it is possible to mix several colors and obtain an infinite number of shades as you would with watercolor paints.

Saman stains are an environmentally friendly product.


Basic Application Methods & Tips

Surface Preparation:
The surface must be clean, dry and free of all dirt.  If necessary, sand with fine abrasive paper (120-150 grit) to get a smooth finish and remove excess material with a compressed air duster or tack cloth.

Very simply pour a small quantity of stain onto a sponge (use the included sponge inside the Saman staining kit 60-002), or purchase a comparable sponge or foam brush.  Always working with the grain of the wood.  Wipe up any excess of stain using a lint free cloth.  We suggest the SuperWiper lint free cotton cloth.

Sealing & Protecting:
Apply two coats of Saman water-based clear finish to the surface area.

Darken applied color -  Apply a second coat and wipe thoroughly.
