Solar-Lux™ Stain


5/5 · 4 reviews

Solar-Lux™ Stain is a dye base, non-grain raising stain which is also highly fade and U.V. resistant. Its colorful transparency and deep penetration enhances wood's natural beauty. Solar-Lux Stains can be mixed together in order to achieve customized shades. They dry in approximately 5 minutes and can be coated with varnish, polyurethane, oil or conventional lacquer. Solar-Lux added to lacquers will provide a high-quality toner that deepens colors without painting or clouding the finish.

For Professional Use Only

To dilute use Solar-Lux Reducer. To slow drying use Solar-Lux Retarder.

Directions for use

Solar-Lux Stain may be brushed, wiped, or spray-applied (30-35 psi). Apply Pre-Stain Clear Wood Stain Base to the wood before brush or wipe application to promote even staining. Solar-Lux Stain may also be added to lacquer for shading.

To dilute use Solar-Lux Reducer. To slow drying use Solar-Lux Retarder.

Great Product

I have used this stuff for violin/musical instrument repairs for years. I have refinished violins with this product as well. It brings out the wood grain like you wouldn't believe. Ardec did a great job getting it to me in a timely manner.

As somebody who generally stains or leaves a project natural this is only the second dye I've ever used. In comparison to the last dye this one is absolutely fabulous in both application, coverage and appearance. I couldn't be happier. This Solar-Lux jet black product will definitely become my go to product when I want an ebonized finish. Not to mention the ordering process was simple and delivery as expected only improvement would be a tracking number and an order update once shipped.
