Controlled Erosion Stain is a low VOC, wax and oil free, water based stain that instantly ages timber. It is designed to give a genuine, weathered appearance to raw exterior grade timber, to fade over time, and to let the natural grey of the timber take over. It can also be stained black to give a charred timber look. It will reduce tannin bleeding and water pick up after the first coat. Controlled Erosion Stain works especially well on mixed species timber, as it hides the underlying colour.

  • Coverage is ≈ 10 m²/L, depending on surface porosity and application method. Ensure surface is clean, dry, free from wax, grease, dust, etc.


    Stir thoroughly before and during use with a flat paddle. Apply 2 coats with a clean brush, roller or spray gun, to both sides of the timber. Controlled Erosion Stain can be scoured back to give a wonderfully deep appearance, though only of dressed timber surfaces. On Weathertex, 3 coats must be applied to the front, with only 1 required on the back.


    Do not apply in temperatures below 10℃ or above 30℃. Allow 24 hours drying time. Brushes and equipment should be cleaned thoroughly with water. Timber, stone, and masonry have natural faults and features, thus variation can be expected. Always make your own test on part of the job which does not show to determine suitability for your specific use.
