Truly universal wood dyes
UNICOLOR are special wood dyes/stains for indoor applications as formulated in bi-soluble solvent dispersion.
These dyes could be thinned down with water or solvent or with a combination of the two.
Thanks to the particular formulation, UNICOLOR dyes meet most of the application systems and methods like: spray, wiping, roller and through manual and/or automatic equipment.
UNICOLORS are supplied in high concentrated solutions to be reduced accordingly to the color chart below.
Usually, distilled water is commonly used for thinning down UNICOLOR dyes, as said distilled water is de-mineralized in order to avoid the formation of mold and interactions with impurities, although inside the formulation there are already stabilizers and anti-mold substances.
UNITHINNER is the solvent thinner used by itself or in combination with distilled water. It leaves the surface homogenous and smooth to the touch, with no-grain raising.
Even on the hardest woods, UNITHINNER provides and facilitates the color uniformity with excellent results. The final result is an amazing deep and brilliant hue.
The over layering of UNICOLORS, with solvent varnish, will not modify the color shade. The overlayering of UNICOLORS with water based varnishes will change the hue into a more brilliant tone. UNICOLORS can be also over layered with solvent based varnishes such as to nitrocellulose, polyurethanes, acrylics and, after the previous application of an insulator, polyesters paints can be applied too. Astra Vernici® also provides specific “vehicles/binders” in order to meet all the customers demands and application systems even when said dyes are applied on difficult timbers.
Reliable indoor water based wood dyes
ACQUACOLORare superb water based wood dyes for indoor applications, containing very low solvent content with low impact for the environment.
Thanks to their special formulation, ACQUACOLORS meet most of the application systems and methods like: spray, dip-coating, flow-coating, wiping, roller and through manual and/or automatic equipment.
ACQUACOLOR are supplied in high concentrated solutions to be thinned down accordingly to the color charts parthere below. The thinner used for ACQUACOLOR is distilled water (de-mineralized, to avoid the formation of mold and interactions with impurities, although inside the formulation there are stabilizers and anti-mold substances with low environmental impact). Even on the most problematic woods ACQUACOLOR provides excellent color uniformity and the final result is a unique, deep and brilliant tone. The over layering of ACQUACOLOR with water based finishings does not modify the color hue (it’s a “non bleeding” series’). ACQUACOLOR can be over layered with water based coatings or solvent based finishings such as nitrocellulose, polyurethane, acrylic and, after the application of a specific isolator, with polyester undercoats and finishes, as well.
Astra Vernici®. also provides specific “vehicles/binders” in order to avoid any inconvenience with the ACQUACOLORS dyes and with the application methods even when said wood-dyes are applied on difficult substances.
