All about Auro 160 - Woodstain

Auro 160 is a wood stain that contains only natural raw materials, has a semi-transparent finish, and was a nominated test winner by the German ‘Stiftung Warentest’ (Organisation for the Comparative Testing of Consumer Goods).

Its purpose is to provide the same finish as you would expect from any top-quality wood stain, but as a natural wood stain. Because of Auro’s unique natural approach to making wood stain (and other products such as their paints), Auro 160 wood stain is virtually odourless, quick-drying, solvent-free, and can even be used on children’s toys and cots (certified saliva- and perspiration-proof, DIN 53160; safe for toys, DIN EN 71, Part 3). It’s even vegan friendly.

There is a fantastic selection of mixable colours that provide a breathable protective layer on both wood and wood-based materials. Pre-treat wood types that are rich in active substances with Special Primer No. 117.

What is Auro 160 Wood Stain best used for?
Wood stains are easy to apply and give a distinctive appearance to wooden surfaces. The grain of the wood remains visible after the application of the wood stain.

The natural ingredients in the wood stain penetrate deeply into the wood, protecting it from weather and pests. It is best used on interior and exterior wood, well as wood-based materials, including the following applications:

- Doors
- Furniture
- Windows
- kitchen and bedroom furniture
- Garden furniture
- Wooden sheds
- Fences
- Beehives
