Use: Bio Savvy Stain Java is recommended for unsealed wooden surfaces, concrete, and metal.
Surface Prep: Because different types of wood accept stain differently, we recommend that users always test in small, inconspicuous areas before application to the entire surface. Surfaces to be stained with Java Bio Savvy Stain should be cleaned of dirt, dust, grease, wax, silicone, soap and oil, and must be completely free of mold, mildew or fungus contamination. Cleaning surfaces with an odorless, dye-free, all-purpose cleaner like Bio Savvy Super Solution is recommended. Previously painted or sealed surfaces will not accept stain readily. Stripping of old paint or sealer followed by rinsing and/or sanding may be required before application of Bio Savvy Stain to achieve maximum penetration from this product.
Application: Stir Java Bio Savvy Stain well before using, then apply evenly using a high quality pure bristle brush or roller. Darkness of stain may be increased by high surface porosity, wiping off less stain, or letting the stain dry longer before wiping. The shade of the stained surface will be affected by the color and type of wood.
Dry Time: Under normal conditions, Java Bio Savvy Stain dries to touch in less than 1 hour and is re-coatable after 2 hours. Normal conditions include a dry surface, access to fresh air flow, moderate humidity, and temperatures above 55°F. Thick application, high humidity or conditions other than normal will cause Java Bio Savvy Stain to dry and cure more slowly.
Clean-Up: Tools should be cleaned after use with a solution of soapy warm water.
