Wood Finishes And Coatings
Wood finishing coating is done to enhance the look and texture of the wood, to cover the grain of the wood and to provide a protective covering. There are different kinds of finishes that could be given to wood such as varnish, stain, dye, wax, oil and wood preserver. While choosing the finish for your wood consider whether you need some color or gloss or just a protective covering or an almost invisible coat. Varnish is available as water based or oil based type. Varnish is a hardwearing, transparent, decorative and preservative finish. It can be used for wood and to protect unsealed finishes.
Satin soaks into the wood and provides a decorative and a preservative finish. Satin usually darkens the wood. It is also available in water based and oil based types. Dye is used to enhance the color of the wood. The disadvantage of using dye is that it does not provide any protection for the wood unlike varnish. For a transparent or translucent decorative finish wax is the ideal kind of finish. Before applying the wood finish, surface imperfections are removed using sanding, planing and scraping techniques. Staining and bleaching are also used to change the colour of the wood. Once these processes are completed, the appropriate finish is selected to provide the desired results such as glossy finish and excellent shine. Some of the places in UAE to purchase wood finishing materials or to find professionals who provide wood finishing services are Mussafah industrial area in Abu Dhabi and Al Quoz industrial area in Dubai.
