AFM Safecoat DuroTone is a fast-curing low odor semi-transparent interior wood stain using no aromatic solvents, formaldehyde, UV inhibitors or hazardous air pollutants. It penetrates deeply into the wood and has excellent pigmentation stability creating a more uniform finish.
It's ideal for flooring, furniture, doors, millwork, window and door trim and all unsealed interior wood surfaces.
NOTE1: Freshly sanded wood will absorb all water-based stains very quickly. To avoid lap marks, we recommend lightly misting or wiping the floor first with water so that the stain absorbs more slowly and evenly.
NOTE2: Actual product colors may vary from colors shown on your monitor, and application color will be affected by the wood you are placing the stain upon (the photos show the stain on Poplar). Colors can be verified by ordering the small pint size from our Site.
AFM Durotone is different from AFM DuroStain or other water-based stains because it has a little bit longer open time which makes it easier to apply on large surfaces such as flooring. It also uses non-toxic dye and pigmentation with no acrylic. Finally, DuroTone accepts water finish coats such as AFM Polyureseal BP, AFM Acrylacq, AFM WaterShield, for maximum longevity. Please follow application instructions, and be sure the Durotone has dried completely before applying your finish coat.
AFM has recently created a beautiful non-toxic stain that works far better than its predecessor AFM Durostain. It covers 450 SF/gallon (instead of 350/SF), has a longer open time (dries slower), produces a more even and less splotchy color with no lap marks and can be finished with water based finishes.
