Interior Stains & Finishes
Oil-Based Gel Stains
Gel Stain from General Finishes is home to the popular Java Gel Stain featured across the nation’s social media for upcycling furniture and cabinets. Gel wood stains are heavy-bodied and do not penetrate as deeply into the wood as liquid oil-based wipe-on stains do, providing the deepest, richest colors of any oil-based stain available.
Water-Based Wood Stain
General Finishes Water Based Wood Stains are formulated to provide workability similar to oil-based stains. They spread easily, can be repaired, blend effortlessly, and have plenty of open time. These wood stains’ thicker formula allows for controlled penetration, and their high-quality pigments produce rich, dark, uniform colors on hard-to-stain woods like maple and pine. Low odor, low VOC, water cleanup, and noncombustible.
Arm-R-Seal Oil-Based Topcoat
Arm-R-Seal Topcoats are made with the highest quality urethane resin, making them extremely durable and long-lasting. These oil-based finishes are formulated to be wiped on with a cloth or applied with a foam brush, and they penetrate to provide deep-down protection for the “natural” look.
Oil-Based Gel Topcoat
Gel Topcoat has been a long-time favorite finish of woodworkers, with a heavy-duty oil-and-urethane base that produces a beautiful, hand-rubbed look. Gel Satin Topcoat has a thick consistency, so there are no drips, runs, or spills.
Enduro-Var Water Based Urethane Topcoat
The enduro-Var wood finish is a self-crosslinking, oil-modified, water-based polyurethane that looks more like an oil varnish than a water coating. It ambers slightly, is highly water-resistant, and is both sprayable and brushable. Enduro-Var water-based topcoat adheres well ONLY over Water stains, dye stains, and raw wood. High-Performance Polyurethane Water Based Topcoat Winner of Fine Woodworking’s “Best Overall Choice Award,” High-Performance Topcoat was voted the hardest, most durable consumer polyurethane topcoat.
Extender is a wetting additive used to improve flow and leveling and slow the drying time of any water-based stain, topcoat, or glaze, which helps hot, dry conditions. Looking for inspiration? Click here to check out General Finish’s Design Center.
