OIL BASED PRE-STAIN WOOD CONDITIONER

General Finishes Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner is designed for use before staining new, soft and porous wood surfaces, such as aspen, cherry, birch, poplar or pine with an oil-based stain. It penetrates the grain of the wood to promote uniform acceptance of oil-based wood stain and reduces streaking and blotching to help ensure beautiful, even coverage.

 

 

General Finishes Oil Based Pre-Stain Conditioner Application Steps

 

For use with oil-based stains.

 

  1. Work in a well-ventilated area. 
  2. Stir General Finishes Oil Based Pre-Stain Conditioner to reincorporate solids that have settled to the bottom of the can.
  3. Do NOT thin.
  4. Apply 1 coat of Pre-Stain Conditioner to raw wood using a clean cotton rag, natural bristle or foam brush, staining pad or pad applicator.
  5. Pre-Stain Conditioner Natural can improve color uniformity over difficult-to-stain wood species such as pine. However, it will limit color absorption, so a darker wood stain may be required to get the desired depth of color.
  6. Let Pre-Stain Conditioner penetrate the wood for 10+ minutes.
  7. Wipe off excess with a clean, dry cloth.
  8. Apply stain over conditioner. 
  9. Let Pre-Stain Conditioner dry at least 30 minutes, but no longer than 2 hours before applying stain, in ideal conditions: 70°F/20°C; 50-70% humidity. Do not wait longer than 2 hours, and never let Pre-Stain Conditioner dry overnight before applying a stain over it. 

 

Dilute Oil Based Stain: Add 5% GF Oil Based Pre-Stain Conditioner to GF oil based stains by volume; increase up to 15% as desired.
