application and advice


Ensure the surface is clean, dry and free of any previous finishes, wax, oil, grease and dust. Sand thoroughly to a smooth finish and remove the dust.


Ensure the product is well mixed but do not shake. Apply liberally with a brush, sponge or clean cotton cloth and wipe off any excess immediately, working with the grain wherever possible. For a lighter shade, the dye may be diluted with water. For a stronger colour apply a second coat after 4 hours. If more than one container is needed, mix them together to ensure uniform colour. Always apply to a test area before starting work. Do not apply in direct sunlight. Do not apply in temperatures below 10°C. Instructions in the technical data sheet must be followed.
We recommend protecting with a Polyvine water-based interior/exterior varnish after leaving to dry overnight.


Different woods and woodgrains will alter the appearance of the wood dye. Apply to a test area prior to application.
Polyvine Wood Dye seals the surface but for added protection apply Polyvine Heavy Duty Wood Varnish, Polyvine Heavy Duty Floor Varnish, dead flat or satin, or Polyvine Exterior Varnish.


Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.
