Product Information:

Solar-Lux is a highly fade and UV resistant, dye base, non-grain raising stain. Its penetration and translucency enhance the wood’s grain pattern. Solar-Lux shades can be mixed to achieve custom colors, and it accepts a finish coat of polyurethane, oil or conventional lacquer. Apply with the grain and then wipe with a clean lint-free cloth. Solar-Lux dries to the touch in about five minutes but you should wait about an hour before recoating. Solar-Lux can be mixed into Behlen nitrocellulose spray lacquers to produce shading and highlighting toners. Use warm, soapy water or Solar-Lux Reducer to clean up equipment. One pint.

    Comments about Behlen Solar-Lux Stain, American Walnut, Pint :

    I bought this to use on a walnut end table because I wanted to even out some of the coloring and darken some of the lighter sapwood areas. The dye left a very distinct reddish tinge that did not look natural. I ended up using a Minwax walnut oil stain and fared much better.

    Comments about Behlen Solar-Lux Stain, American Walnut, Pint :

    Took an old beat up Garand stock and sanded out all of the gouges etc. Got down to some pretty wood but still had stains around the butt plate and didn't want to ruin the fit with more. The Behlens blended the stains away and made the wood look beautiful. I used GB Lin-Speed oil finish on the Behlens and it couldn't look better. Behlens and Lin-Speed are a great combination.
