Hesse Colour stain BC 40-(colour tone) for spraying and wiping off

  • Can be used on many woods
  • All tones can be mixed with each other
  • Spraying with wiping
  • Use for tones uncommon in wood, for instance according to RAL
Ready to use HYDRO pigment stain. Transparent to opaque stain appearances are achieved using Hesse BC colour stains. Opaque colours can be formulated, for instance according to RAL, Sikkens or NCS colour cards. Although the use of extremely fine, micronised pigments means that you obtain higher transparency and brilliance than is usual for this type of stain. The structure of the wood is covered more or less effectively depending on the depth of colour tone. This also allows you to create colour tones that are lighter that the inherent hue of the wood. The light fastness of colour stains represents the maximum that can be achieved amongst all stains. Specifically formulated for ash.

Information on use

Drying 3 h / 20 °C
Surface preparation The wood must be dry, dust-free and grease-free.
Substrate sanding grits from-to 120 - 180
Finishing Subsequent coating with light-stable lacquers from the Hesse PU range, colour stains in natural shades also with suitable 1C and 2C HYDRO coatings. Complete drying must be guaranteed prior to recoating. Drying is delayed by low temperatures, reduced exchange of air, high humidity and large application amounts.
Comments on sanding A graduated raw wood sanding is recommended. The quality of the sanding is decisive for the quality of the final result. The bare wood can optionally be dampened. After drying overnight, sand or smooth.
Yield per coat 15 - 24 m²/l

The spreading rate is heavily dependent on the type of application. The specifications relate to a liter of ready-for-use product, if necessary including hardener and thinner.
Working Temperature Range 16 - 25 °C
Storage temperature 5 - 30 °C
Working temperature 20 °C
conditions of transport frost-free - up to a maximum of 35 °C
Processing instructions Apply stain with light excess. Evenly spread the excess first across then with the grit using a suitable brush. The stain should only appear slightly damp as opposed to wet after wiping. Uneven wiping leads to differences in colour tone. Strong opaque effects can be achieved by misting again. Stir stains well before and during processing. The stains can be thinned with water, if required. We recommend small spray nozzle sizes for stains that are to be sprayed but not subsequently wiped. Although large spray nozzle sizes are recommended when spraying stains that are subsequently to be wiped.
Particular instructions Hesse stains are matched to each type of wood in terms of colour tone and application. Additional types of application and woods are available. All stains from the same range can be mixed together. Lighten by adding water. Can be tinted with colour concentrates in the range: BP 30xx, BP 3570. Priming with HYDRO lacquers can result in discolorations when using wood species with a high proportion of water-soluble wood constituents (e.g.oak). We therefore recommend a PU base coat, especially in the case of pastel or white colour tones.
General instructions on workmanship Trial staining of the original sanded wood with original lacquering should be carried out under real conditions. Only use stains from one batch for any one job. Do not pour soiled stains back into the original container. Clean tools with water immediately after use. Dried-on stain residue can be removed with thinners such as ZD 82. Stir stains well before and during processing.
