What are Reactive Stains?
Reactive stains work by reacting with the natural components WITHIN the wood. Whereas, traditional stains add their color by painting the SURFACE of the wood.
Reactive stains create color from inside the wood by interacting with the woods natural ingredients to create unique, 2-toned colors in wide variations that cannot be duplicated with traditional staining methods.
Reactive stain's interaction with the natural tannins and sugars in the wood also creates an 'aged' look by replicating the oxidization and maturing process of naturally aged wood. The natural maturing process will normally take decades to achieve, but with the reactive staining process it can create the same look immediately without harming the quality of the wood itself.
Timbertop: The Gold Standard of Reactive Stain
Artisans and technicians have come together to perfect the age old tradition of tannin enhanced staining in the premium Timbertop collection.
Extracting natural chemistry from earth elements and combining them with the European Oak tree’s tannin rich cellular structure brings to life a color pallet with depth and variation unattainable with pigmented stains and dyes.
Suitably called “Live Color”, each plank takes on a life of its own over the course of a 2-3 week coloring process which effectively neutralizes the color and brings to life the natural depth, grain and character in the wood.
