Woodluxe: A Symphony of Innovation and Tradition
Unveiling the Water-Based Marvel
The heart of Woodluxe lies in its water-based iteration, which unfurls a captivating and extensive spectrum of finishes, meticulously crafted to cater to the diverse and discerning preferences of its users. From the steadfast and reliable Ultra Flat Solid and Solid finishes to the nuanced elegance of Semi-Solid, Semi-Transparent and Translucent options, Woodluxe stands as a testament to the brand's commitment to providing a comprehensive offering that caters to the unique demands of every project.
The water-based Semi-Transparent, Translucent, and Semi-Solid variants have undergone a meticulous and comprehensive redesign, setting them apart from their predecessors in the Arborcoat line. Each product boasts key enhancements designed to elevate the user experience and redefine the standards of excellence in wood staining:
- Stain Penetration: Delve into a new dimension of protection with deeper stain penetration, ensuring longevity and enduring beauty for your wood surfaces.
- Minimal Film Formation for Longevity: Woodluxe's water-based products have been ingeniously designed to wear gracefully over time, a departure from the conventional peeling concerns, ensuring reduced callbacks for contractors and less headaches for homeowners.
- Application Characteristics: Experience a heightened level of ease during application, with a reduction in lap marks, resulting in a flawlessly finished project.
- Uniform Appearance: Achieve a consistent and harmonious aesthetic in every stroke, ensuring that your wood surfaces exude timeless elegance.
- Water Beading and Protection: Benefit from enhanced water resistance, providing enduring protection against the unpredictable elements of nature.
While the Solid version remains consistent with the Arborcoat Solid formula, the Woodluxe Ultra Flat Solid has undergone a complete and transformative reformulation, enhancing marring resistance and durability to make it suitable for both horizontal and vertical surfaces.
Easy application, quick drying, and convenient soap and water cleanup make Woodluxe water-based products not just a choice but a preference for both seasoned professionals and DIY enthusiasts alike, setting a new standard in user-friendly and efficient wood staining solutions.
Embracing the Elegance of Oil-Based Stains
As the journey through the Woodluxe narrative unfolds, the focus shifts to the oil-based counterpart, which introduces a captivating array of finishes designed to celebrate the innate beauty of wood. With Translucent, Semi-Transparent, and Semi-Solid options, these oil-based products represent a pinnacle of aesthetic excellence, promising to elevate the allure of any exterior project.
The oil-based formulations within the Woodluxe series have been subjected to a comprehensive and transformative reimagination. This time, the emphasis is on presenting a full oil-based stain, a departure from the oil-modified acrylic approach. At the core of Woodluxe's oil-based offerings is Benjamin Moore's unwavering commitment to delivering an authentic oil-based line. This commitment translates into an experience characterized by ease of application, minimal lap marks, and a classic oil finish that accentuates the woodgrain. This makes Woodluxe an ideal choice for hardwoods such as Ipe and Mahogany. This transformation unfolds across several key aspects, each contributing to a superior wood staining experience:
- Stain Penetration: The pursuit of enduring beauty and best in class performance necessitates superior stain penetration, ensuring that the wood surfaces are not just protected but transformed into timeless pieces of natural art.
- Water Repellency: Woodluxe's oil-based formulations provide enhanced protection against the elements, creating a formidable shield that withstands the tests of time and weather.
- Beauty and Appearance: The oil-based Woodluxe products are crafted to bring forth the inherent elegance of wood, ensuring that every project becomes a showcase of nature's finest aesthetics.
