In the past, stains were generally
oil-based. This was the accepted norm even though they were challenging to use, especially for the DIY user. An oil-based stain is not easy to work with; it's difficult to remove from brushes, clothes, and even skin.

BEFORE USING AQUA COAT GRAIN FILLER
AFTER USING AQUA COAT GRAIN FILLER
Listen to Aqua Coat’s President on APC’s Paint Radio podcast educating contractors on how to use Aqua Coat White Cabinet Grain Filler to obtain a smooth finish on kitchen cabinets.
Achieving a glass smooth finish with grain fillers is not as hard as you’d think. Especially with today’s modern products. Learn everything you would ever want to know about grain fillers in the Paint Radio podcast.
With Grain Filler or Without? You decide. Woods such as oak, mahogany and walnut are characterized as having “open grain” because the wood pores are large. In contrast, “closed grain” woods like hard maple, cherry, poplar and beech have smaller pores. You don’t have to fill the pores of any wood before applying a finish. It’s a matter of what you want the final surface to feel and look like. ...

News stories about chemical dangers in food, in health products, where we work and in our homes, appear almost daily, so we worry. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) are carbon-containing compounds that, as the product dries, get released into the air where they react with other elements to produce ozone, which in turn causes air pollution and health issues. It makes sense, then, to limit those VOCs in our...

Fifty years ago, virtually all paint products were solvent based. They contained high levels of organic compounds. These solvents facilitate application, drying and the formation of a durable, regular film. On the negative side, when these compounds evaporate, they release Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) into the atmosphere resulting in a strong odor and toxic impact on the environment. Stricter environmental regulations have required paint manufacturers to dramatically reduce the levels...
Applying sanding sealer is a vital step in finishing high-quality furniture and trim. The difference between a project with a professional-looking finish or one that just looks okay is attention to detail and patience. Attention to detail means taking the time to prepare the wood properly and patience means you need to take extra time to finish the project. One of those extra steps is to use a sanding sealer....

Blotching can be caused by stain penetrating deeper into some parts of the wood than in others. It depends a lot on moisture in the wood and the types of wood. It is common with woods that have uneven densities. Hardwoods like oak and maple do not usually need blotch protector because due to the hardness they absorb stain consistently across the wood. Softwoods such as pine, birch and some...
During the process of film formation, which is the water evaporating from the coating film, both temperature and humidity in your environment are some of the factors that affect the formation of a water-based coating. Application of a water-based product to a surface whose temperature is above or below 50 to 80 degrees F could cause the coating to have poor durability. Temperature is only one of the external factors...
