|Preparation||Good surface preparation is vital for the perfect finish. Surfaces should be clean, dry, and free from any dirt, dust, grease, glue, flaking pieces, or contaminants. Repair any cracks, holes, or imperfections. Sand the wood in the direction of the grain to obtain a smooth uniform surface. First use a medium-grade sandpaper (#120) working your way to fine-grade sandpaper (#220). Do not use steel wool. Wipe clean with a damp cloth to remove all sanding dust, and let dry thoroughly before applying the stain. Always spot test on an inconspicuous area to ensure satisfactory results and color.|
|Application and Clean Up||Stir thoroughly before and during use to eliminate any settling. Do not shake. Do not thin. Do not apply in temperatures below 50oF. Dries to the touch in 30 to 60 minutes. High humidity and cool temperatures may result in longer dry and recoat times. Clean application tools with warm soapy water. Apply in the direction of the wood grain using a clean, lint-free cloth, high quality synthetic bristle brush, a foam brush, or lamb’s wool applicator (for floors). Maintain a wet edge. Allow to penetrate for one to three minutes. Once the conditioner has been applied go over the same section with a clean lint-free cloth to remove any excess, wiping in the direction of the grain with an even pressure. Do not allow conditioner that has not penetrated the wood to dry on the surface. After 15 to 30 minutes, lightly sand the surface with fine-grade sandpaper (220 grit) to smooth any raised grain, then remove all sanding dust. The surface is now ready for staining with ECOS Stain.|
