These are smaller sample cans to test the appearance of various Messmer's UV Plus tints on your actual wood. One sample can will cover about 6 square feet.
Messmer's UV Plus is a truly excellent stain containing extremely high quality resins and pigment particles. It will provide a much richer tone and greater longevity than any commonly-available stain.
It is a full-penetration stain that will not alter the wood surface, obscure the natural grain, or form a surface skin. For this reason recoating is very quick and easy - there will be no scraping required and only a single coat is required (multiple coats are not recommended).
Once you've chosen your colour, it is highly recommended that you prepare the deck before staining using our "Ultimate Deck Cleaner - Step 1" (to remove surface contaminants and dirt that prevent optimal stain penetration and adhesion) and then our "Ultimate Citric Brightener - Step 2" (to brighten wood and create the optimal Ph-level for stain retention).
Many of our customers are switching over from competitor's stains, in which case you may wish to strip the deck first using our easy-to-use "Ultimate Deck Stripper - Step 1 for Oil-Based Coatings" followed by our "Ultimate Citric Brightener - Step 2".
Available colours are shown below. For those looking to match the colour of oiled Ipe, "Dark Walnut" is an excellent choice. For those looking to match the colour of oiled Sandeka, Oak Brown is an excellent match.
