Varnishing solid wood is an important step in woodworking, as it protects the wood from wear and tear, and gives the surface a smooth and uniform finish, to enhance the aesthetic qualities and perception of the product.

Painting solid wood can be difficult and give poor quality results if you don’t know the correct techniques.

In this article, the expert painters of Torneria Friulana del Legno will provide technical information on the differences between polyurethane and water-based colors.

Polyurethane stains are solvent-based paints that provide a hard-wearing, glossy finish. They emit toxic vapors during application, require adequate ventilation and can take longer to dry than water-based dyes.

Water-based paints, on the other hand, are water-based paints that emit few toxic vapors and have a faster drying time. However, they can be less resistant to wear than polyurethane dyes.

These characteristics must be evaluated by experts in the sector in order to obtain the most suitable wood varnishing solution for each product, based on the specific needs of the customer.
