PENOFIN exterior finishes were formulated to safeguard the natural beauty of wood and to prevent discoloration from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Penofin wood stain resists and retards bleeding caused by nails. Two key ingredients contribute to Penofin’s exceptional abilities:

  • Brazilian Rosewood Oil provides tough, deepdown moisture protection while still allowing the wood to “breathe.” There’s no surface film to trap moisture, chip, or peel.
  • Microscopically fine, transoxide pigments inhibit ultraviolet damage and darkening. They add deep, rich color without hiding the natural beauty of the grain.
  • 250 VOC

By precisely combining these and other ingredients, we have created a line of transparent oil wood finishes unmatched in durability and beauty.

Caution & Warnings
  • Combustible – keep this product away from heat, open flame, and sparks.
  • Beware of spontaneous combustion. Make certain all rags or other materials used with Penofin are soaked in water, stored in an air-tight container, or otherwise disposed of safely.
  • Use Woodrich Stripper to remove any non-Penofin stain. If wood is gray use Woodrich Brightener to restore the wood’s original appearance.
  • SHAKE WELL BEFORE USING. DO NOT add thinning or blending agents.
  • Apply Penofin to a clean dry surface. Surface must be free of dirt and sawdust build-up. Do not apply when wood is hot to the touch. Minimum temperature is 45 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Brush on, use a stain pad, or spray on using a pump up sprayer equipped with plastic tip.
  • To allow for maximum penetration wait 30 minutes, then use a nap-free shop cloth and wipe the entire surface, removing excess product.
  • Surface will be dry to the touch in three hours, and ready for use in 12 hours.
  • When using the one-coat formula, the application is now complete.
  • Do not apply wet-on-wet.
  • If using the two-coat formula, wait a minimum of three hours and apply a light second coat and again wipe any excess from the entire application area after 30 minutes.
Product Performance Warranty

PENOFIN® exterior finishes are warranted to perform when applied to wood surfaces according to label instructions. For Blue Label Penofin expect 2 – 5 years on vertical surfaces, 1 – 2 years on horizontal surfaces depending on use and weather exposure. We recommend preserving the beauty of your horizontal surfaces by staining every 9 – 24 months.

Color Test

It is best to test PENOFIN on your wood to determine the desired color. The shade can be affected by the type of wood, the manner applied, the length of time the oil is left on, and by the number of coats. If the desired color is attained with one coat of a pigmented formula, the wet-sand process may be done with PENOFIN Natural.

  • When you use Penofin, maintenance is a snap. Because Penofin is a low-solid product, there is no stripping or sanding necessary. Simply wash the surface with water and a mild detergent. Allow your wood surface to dry completely, approximately 48 hours before application.
  • Follow the application methods listed on the previous page for a fresh and beautiful wood surface.

Coverage depends on application method, texture, and moisture content of wood. Coverage is less on rough surfaces, more on smooth surfaces. Average coverage is 175-300 sq. ft. per gallon.

  • Penofin is an oil-based product 250 voc. Clean brushes and other application materials with mineral spirits or paint thinner.
  • AVOID SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION of oily rags. Soak all used cloths in a covered metal bucket of water, ensuring the cloths are completely covered with water. Cover until they can be properly disposed at your local hazardous materials drop-off.
Hardwood Application

Use a brush or sprayer. Brushing gives best results. Brush thoroughly and back brush Penofin into the wood leaving no excess. Wipe entire surface after 20-30 minutes with a nap-free cloth. Do not allow film to develop on wood surface. Apply when there is no chance of rain during the process or during the twelve-hour drying time. If rain occurs spots may develop on wood surfaces. Do not apply in direct hot sun! A minimum air temperature of 45° is required during application and drying time.

Repeat this application within 3-6 months and again within 10-12 months. Over time the wood fibers will become fully protected and maintenance will become less frequent. Product should be applied more often to horizontal areas and also areas with high ultra-violet exposure or heavy traffic. Store all oily cloths in water in a metal bucket until properly disposed.
