Many people request colour matched MIROSTAIN colours for various projects. However, some colours are created for customers who wish to own a unique colour that cannot be easily replicated by others.
So how do our colour services match/create your stain colours?
The principal requirement is a good source of natural light to compare MIROSTAIN colours on the substrate sample. Other requirements include:
Supply of the timber substrate used in the project,
Measuring jugs or beakers,
Colour formulation records,
Retained colour samples &
Depending on the application method (spray, dipping or wiping), MIROSTAIN colours are created by the same method which will be used in full scale production by the customer. It is important to remember that colours may vary depending upon the application method (spray, dipping or wiping), plus the time lapse between application and final wiping off. Spray application may leave a darker colour than wiping. It is also important to note that colours may vary depending upon the substrate being either solid timber or timber veneer. Timber articles made from both solid and veneered timber may show a variation in colour due to differing levels of penetration into the substrate.
