Stain – Staining is a type of cabinet finishes that makes use of varnish, lacquer, polyurethane or shellac that enhances the natural color of wood. By definition, wood stains are composed of colorants which are suspended in a vehicle such as alcohol or a finishing agent like varnish, lacquer, shellac or polyurethane. These colorants are not fully dissolved in the vehicle.
This finish provides durability, resistance to heat and keeps cabinets from corroding. Varnishes are traditionally made up of a combination of resin and oils. As it dries, the result is a hard surface and a fade resistant finish on cabinets. Varnishes also come in a variety of colors. Tinted varnishes have rich colors which can be used to show off the graining pattern of wood more. Aside from traditional and tinted varnishes, other types of this finish include catalyzed varnish, which is a fast acting varnish that is more durable and corrosion resistant, and polyurethane varnish, which is thicker and creates a glossy appearance for kitchen cabinets.
