With this range, PHILODEN offers a versatile range of dyes that find its use in the production of wood staining and lacquers.
All the products of this range are available in a wide variety of colors, fulfil the standards typically required for such applications.
Solvent Born Wood Staining
Besides paints, wood stains are used as alternative way to color wooden articles.
Different than paints which normally provide hiding power, wood stains made of PHILOPON dyes, allow the coloration of wood without hiding the attractive structure and pattern of natural wood and therefore maintaining the character of the grown wood. After treated with stains, wood often needs a top coat for protection since staining just provides coloration.
Solvent Born Lacquers
This is another field of applications for which our products from the PHILOPON range are the first choice.
Dissolved in organic solvent systems together with a suitable resin (e.g. acrylate), our range of dyes can become the toolbox which allows to cover an extended color space.
Such lacquers can be applied on porous and non-porous surfaces in order to achieve a transparent coating.
When applied on reflective surfaces like metal foils, lacquers produced from our dyes can show their full potential regarding coloristic and transparency.
