Timber Colour Shade Adjustment
There are many times we are called out to help repair pre finishes boards, engineered and real wood floors that have discolouration throughout the timber. Most of the time all you will hear is that "its the natural deviation in the timber". We all know the customer will never be happy with this.
So is there a solution? Yes, of course there is.
Konig Australia holds the largest colour range in the world tailored to all timber colours. One of the products that will be discussed through the article is basically the best way of making the defect look invisible.
Follow these simple steps to achieve the best finish:
Products Required: Furniture Refresher and dry sandpaper
Clean surface with a light cleaner or furniture refresher and roughen with Sandpaper, grain 320/400. Finally, sand with Wire Wool 000 or with the 1500 grit Sanding Pad.This allows the pours of the timber to be open, ready for any absorption permitting any product to adhere the best.
Products Required: LP Shade Equalizer
Protect the surrounding area with tape and choose matching colour shade from König‘s standard colour chart or special colour match. Prior to use, shake can well and spray briefly to clear the valve. When banging of the mixing balls is audible – shake at least for another 30 seconds. Repeat this operation during processing. Process at room temperature – do not spray on cold/hot surfaces. Do not use in the gasket area of windows and doors. When spraying from a distance of 40-50 cm, tiny colour dots are produced so that a 'raster-like colour net' develops ensuring smooth colour transitions on the repaired area. Several colour shades can be put on top of each other.
Adjust colour shade by misting with Shade Equalizer LP from a distance of 30-40 cm – do not spray too wet. LP for intensive colour adjustment, P for very precise colour adjustment.
Waiting 10 to 30 minutes between coats is the best option. Dry time can be within 5 minutes if warmer weather. Apply light coats instead of thick wet layers.
