Water Based Stains and Topcoats10/17
Hi everyone, I work for a small coatings company that produces stains and topcoats. Our customers are finishing companies, we currently do not do retail. However, our company was approached by a large retail chain to supply them with water based stains and water based topcoats.
The target customer is going to be professionals that finish flooring.
My question is, what type of qualities in a stain or topcoat are important to you as a finisher? Easy to use? Fast dry time?
Are there any negative properties that you see in your current products?
Thank you for any input!
Thank you for the response. I agree, formulating for WB is much easier.
What do you mean by adding transparent iron oxide wb dispersion? Do you use transparent pigments in your stains or you add them to the top coat to have a tinted top coat?
