Wash Coat before Stain

2 posts in this topic

has anyone heard of this process used on marine applications prior to staining?  My understanding is that if you bleach your wood it is a way to partially fill your grain, pin holes and darkens the wood to it natural state... it also helps with the Stain application process.... anyone with experiance in this area would apprecate some feed back.....

 

Thanks

Bleaching the wood will resolve dark staining and neutralize any fungus that may be in evidence. After bleach the wood must be rinsed with a lot of fresh water, Of course the water will raise the grain and may incidentally fill minute imperfections. The real purpose of the bleach is to kill fungus and remove the old stain. You will still need to sand and prepare the surface for both stain and varnish.

I hope this helps clarify the process
