Fiddes Nitro Stains are a range of high quality penetrating oil-based stains designed with the flexibility to create your own unique colour.
Nitro Stains are specifically formulated for timber floors but can also be used on any timber surface. They offer excellent even penetration and rich depth of colour. Suitable for use under Fiddes Hard Wax Oil or Lacquers. Nitro Clear/Thinners can be mixed with Nitro Stains to customise colours and to clean up accessories.

Stir the contents well and always check the shade before application.
Rolled On Method – For a deep colour, roll out the stain evenly using a 10mm microfibre roller in the direction of the grain working out a few boards/areas at a time. Use a paint brush to blend the end boards and leave.
Buffed In Method – For a lighter two-toned effect use a SLOW speed buffing machine (175RPM) with Fiddes Buffing Cloth or like material on a pad. Pour the stain directly onto the pad and buff in evenly. Brush the stain on the edges and rag off the excess.
Wipe on/Wipe off Method -Take a clean, lint free cotton cloth or sponge and apply in the direction of the wood grain where possible. Take care to remove any excess stain immediately with a separate, clean absorbent cloth, again following the direction of the grain pattern. To obtain a uniform colour, always wipe evenly, blending the stain over the whole surface area by exerting a degree of pressure when applying by hand. Leave to dry, and do not sand between coats.
The application of additional coats will deepen the existing colour/shade.
