Minwax Performance Series Tintable Wood Stain is a rich, thick, oil based formula that provides a beautiful, long-lasting finish. It applies easily and penetrates deep into the pores of the wood. While conventional stains recommend 18 to 24 hours drying time, Minwax Performance Series Tintable Wood Stain can be recoated in just 2 hours for solvent-based finishes and 6 hours for water-based finishes. Thicker than conventional stains, this high-performance stain is easier to control with less spatter and dripping. You'll mask less, use fewer drop cloths, and save time on every job.
