What is a varnish?

  • A varnish gives a hard-wearing transparent protective film.
  • You can choose a matt, satin or gloss finish.
  • It is resistant to scratching.
  • It is not micro-porous, thus reserved for interior use (furniture, doors, stairs, floors, etc).

What is a woodstain?

  • A wood stain is comparable to a micro-porous varnish (meaning it acts as a barrier to liquid water, but allows water vapour to pass through in order for the wood to ‘breathe’).
  • Because of this, it resists moisture and is ideal for exterior use.
  • In general, it is coloured to combat the effects of UV.
  • It can also be used indoors for its decorative qualities.
