Stainable Primer™ is a revolutionary new product which makes virtually any surface a stainable surface, without having to strip off the old finish.  Developed in 2008 by a hobby-chemist whose wife wanted to replace her white kitchen cabinets with stained cabinets, and after seeing the large costs associated with replacing or refacing the cabinets, his idea was to create an economical wood based product that could easily be applied to a surface, and be stained.  After years of research and development, Stainable Primer™ was born and the chemist’s family had a beautiful new kitchen.

Stainable Primer™  is safe, biodegradable, and has virtually no VOC (<30g/L) (<100g/Gal), which means no offensive smell and less damage to our environment. Because it is a water-based product, Stainable Primer™ can be applied using an inexpensive paint brush or HVLP (High Volume Low Pressure) sprayer by either inexperienced homeowners or by professional painters.

Stainable Primer™ allows you to skip the time consuming step of stripping the old finish. Unlike many other products, the adhesion and absorption properties are excellent. This means that once the project is complete, your new finish will not scratch or chip off. This is a result of the absorption properties of Stainable Primer™ which allows your stain to seep in, just like it would on a standard wood product. After applying Stainable Primer™, you can then use any manufacturer’s stain or paint to create the look and finish you want.

Ideas for Where to Use Stainable Primer™:

  1. Transform MDF, painted wood or particle board cabinets into stunning stained cabinets

  2. Make plastic or metal furniture look like lovely wood furniture

  3. Create attractive stained trim molding using inexpensive wood, PVC or MDF molding

  4. Transform the appearance of a metal, fiberboard, or composite door into a beautiful wood door

  5. Change a staircase from carpet to stained wood, without replacing the underlying inexpensive wood

There is no other product available today that allows you to apply stain to virtually any surface.  The potential uses are limited only by your imagination!
