Taking advantage of nature
Modified natural oils and resins are carried deep into the wood's cell structure using one of nature's commonplace miracles - water. As the water evaporates, Sansin bonds directly with a wood substrate, forming a tough, durable barrier that won't crack, peel or blister.
Sansin Enviro Stains are created using the same principle used for thousands of years. In fact, the ancient people of Norway took resin and gums from the heartwood of trees, warmed it and applied it to their Stave Churches with a broom, buildings which are still standing to this day.
Wide spectrum of natural colour tones
With Sansin Enviro Stains, not only can you protect your wood naturally, you can also invite the beauty of nature into your life. Sansin's collection of 79 unique colours is inspired by the stunning beauty of our world - deep blue of the summer's sky, the rich yelows of a ripe harvest and the pure tones of a sandy beach.
Sansin doesn't just stain your wood; it actually becomes an integral part of your wood's cell structure, protecting it naturally from within. Because Sansin stains are water-borne, they can be applied even to wood with a high moisture contect, with no harmful impact to the environment.
The science behind healthy wood
Wood is a tremendously versatile material - and as long as it's protected, a very strong and durable one. Water, ultraviolet (UV) rays and fungi can all seriously damage your wood.
Traditional petroleum and acrylic-based coatings protect wood by forming a surface film which repels water and UV rays. Unfortunately, this tends to prevent evaporation, trapping moisture in the making it prone to decay.
