Sayerlack revolutionizes the world of stains with Wood Stain plus

July 07, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
The new Sayerlack Tintometric Wood Stain Plus system was created from the need to develop translucent tints and stain finishes using a spectrophotometer reading of reference liquid samples or samples applied on a wood substrate. Starting with Sayerlack concentrated stain bases, the dispenser machine automatically provides the colorants, making it simple, precise, quick and economical to match tints to the sample.

Until now, operators have had to visually analyze the sample, formulate the tint based on their experience and professionalism, manually add the colorants and apply the tint. The coating produced in this way was compared with the sample to be matched and, if the results weren’t satisfactory, the tint was reformulated and corrected until the required colour tone was obtained.
The Wood Stain Plus system is a revolution in the world of colour and offers translucent tints and stain finishes the benefits of the simple and tested method used by the Wood Colour Plus tintometric paint system. The procedure has 5 phases:

1.spectrophotometer reading of the liquid or applied sample processing and tint formulation generated automatically
3.concentrated bases can be mixed manually or automatically using a dispenser machine
4.stain application
5.colour correction to achieve exact match by repeating the previous steps.

The spectrophotometer sends the colour data from the sample to a computer which processes thousands of permutations of the bases under different simulated lighting conditions to obtain a 'colour match prediction.’ This is then tested by application of the formulation onto timber. If not exact the first time, then by measuring the colour, the computer program can optimize the formulation to achieve the perfect match.
Wood Stain Plus allows a colour to be matched with extreme precision, starting with a liquid sample. If you start with an already painted surface, the system can match the colour regardless of the type of substrate, on any type of wood and with any kind of application method.
Wood Stain Plus allows you to faithfully match the sample colors, significantly reducing test samples, time and waste of colorant to obtain the desired results.

This cutting edge method significantly reduces formulation times and makes matching the colour less subjective by removing human error when obtaining the required colour.
Stains formulated in this way can be rapidly prepared by the automatic dispensing of the tintometric machine. After dispensing the concentrated colorants, a suitable thinner is added in the amount indicated by the formula provided by the software in order to obtain the required tint. The new Wood Stain Plus system uses concentrated Sayerlack colorants, successfully adopted by the major manufacturers of wood products worldwide for many years.

Wood Stain Plus allows you to create a database of formulated tints in order to be able to match them very quickly at any time, in any amount, without tests and uneconomical waste. Thanks to Sayerlack and Wood Stain Plus, faithful colour matching is guaranteed!
Wood Stain Plus is a valuable ally for colour centres whose rapid and excellent service is their secret weapon on the market. Cabinet makers, carpenters and artisans who need tint samples can turn to them with the guarantee of high Sayerlack quality and personalized service.
