Behlen Solar-Lux is a highly
Fade and U.V. resistant
Non Grain Raising Dye stain.
Solar-Lux penetration and translucency helps to enhance the wood’s natural grain pattern.
Solar-Lux colors may be intermixed
to achieve customized colors and shades.
Solar-Lux can be mixed into Behlen nitrocellulose spray Lacquers to produce shading and highlighting toners.
Solar-Lux dries in approximately one
hour and accepts a finish coat of varnish, polyurethane, oil or conventional or waterborne lacquer.
Finish sand wood surfaces to 220 - 280 grit, clean, dry, and free of sanding dust.
Apply to BareWood. Behlen Solar-Lux can be applied by spray, brush or wiped on. Application should be consistent and wet to achieve uniform color. Stain should be applied with the grain and then wiped with a clean lint-free cloth. All Behlen Solar-Lux dyes can be intermixed to achieve a variety of cshades.
Overcoat after one hour with solvent based finishes. Allow overnight drying prior to overcoating with Behlen water base finishes.
Solar-Lux Stain is formulated to be used without reduction. If a less intense shade is desired, use Solar-Lux Reducer to reduce color density or to lighten the color tone.
To extend the drying time, promote penetration, or to help eliminate possible lapping marks, use up to 10% of Solar-Lux Retarder.
SHADING LACQUERS & SEALERS:
5-7% of Behlen Solar-Lux dye can be mixed into Nitrocellulose Lacquers and Sealers to produce shading lacquers and sealers.
Soapy warm water or Solar-Lux Reducer should be used to clean up equipment.
