Excellent fade & UV resistance. NGR Transparent Dyes are used alone on bare wood or to provide a base tone of color on which to build a final finish color with stains, glazes, and toners. Dyes contain NO Pigment Particles and therefore color wood without emphasizing the grain structure. Intermix colors to arrive at custom color tones. • For use on bare or stripped wood. • Reduce color with NGR Reducer (M520-00017), or Acetone. • Use NGR RETARDER to slow drying and improve penetration, especially in hot weather or on harder dense woods. • Mix into Lacquer or Shellac to make transparent tints or toners. With the newer VOC Compliant formulation, use ofNGR RETARDER is HIGHLY RECOMMENDEDfor penetration and to extend open working time especially for dye application by hand.
NGR (non grain raising) DYE RETARDER slows evaporation and drying of NGR Dyes to give more working time and improve penetration, especially on hard dense woods. With the newer Dye VOC Compliant formulation, use of the NGR DYE RETARDER is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED especially for dye application by hand.
