Staining tables: key points and tips for industrial use

Staining tables: key points and tips for industrial use

Staining a table is a great idea for several reasons. It increases durability and provides a sleek finish. Below, we share the main points to consider and tips for industrial use.

Staining tables: key reasons to do so

  • With the right finish, staining wooden surfaces significantly extends the lifespan and functionality of tables;
  • Stains accentuate the natural and authentic appearance of the wood;
  • Staining and subsequently varnishing tables and other furniture make maintenance and cleaning easier. The surface becomes more resistant to stains, scratches, and moisture.

Preparatory steps

To ensure that the stain adheres well and provides the aesthetic finish you desire, follow these steps:

  • Sanding. Lightly sand untreated wood. Start with coarse grit sandpaper and finish with a finer grit. Sand in the direction of the wood grain to prevent scratches;
  • Dusting. Remove the wood particles released during sanding. Use a soft, lint-free cloth or brush. For thorough cleaning, a vacuum with a soft brush attachment can also be used;
  • Degreasing. Ensure the surface is free of grease so that the dyes can penetrate the wood optimally.

Points to consider when staining

  • Take appropriate safety measures. Wear gloves to prevent skin irritation and safety goggles to protect the eyes from potential splashes. Use respiratory protection when working with solvent-based stains;
  • Always stir the stain thoroughly before use. This is necessary for even distribution of the pigments;
  • Adhere to the correct drying time. The drying time depends on the type of stain, temperature, and humidity within the space. For specific recommendations, we are happy to assist you. Important: do not place objects on the stained table during drying;
  • Apply the stain with long, even strokes to achieve uniform coverage. Optionally, wipe off excess stain with a cloth.
