Transform your garden with colour

by Helen Shaw, Marketing Director, Benjamin Moore UK

This summer we are adding a new product into our ARBORCOAT� wood stains range, making it even easier to be creative with colour in your garden. Arborcoat wood stains will now be available in a semi-transparent finish, as well as semi-solid, solid and translucent natural. 

Arborcoat extends the life of all types of exterior wood, from windows, doors and cladding to decks, summer houses, sheds and fences. Using next generation technology, Arborcoat has been formulated to penetrate, protect and beautify wood without obscuring the natural beauty of its grain or texture. 

Available in a timeless palette of driftwood greys, warm russets and woodland greens, Arborcoat wood stains can be used on both soft and hard wood surfaces.

Weather never takes a day off

Arborcoat resists the elements and extends the life of your outdoor living spaces. Arborcoat is designed to protect wood form harsh UV rays and water damage. 
Arborcoat gets put through its paces at our New Jersey test farm. 

Whether you�re looking to refresh exterior doors, windows, furniture, decking, cladding, fences, sheds and summer houses, the stunning finish and quality of Arborcoat will ensure your exterior wood looks better for longer, no matter the weather. 

Opacity 101
Arborcoat wood stains are available in the UK in 4 different levels of transparency. The opacity of a wood stain is the degree to which you can see the natural grain of the wood.  

  • Translucent stain doesn�t obscure grain and texture of wood and includes just the slightest hint of pigment to accentuate the natural colour of the wood. This finish works well for new wood and is available in a natural colour. 
  • Semi Transparent stain allows most of the grain and texture to show through, with slightly more prominent colour. This is perfect for renewing the look of weathered wood where the starting colour is still uniform and is available in 75 stunning colours. 
  • Semi Solid stain, with its deeper shades, covers most imperfections while allowing some of the grain and texture of the wood to show through. This works well on weathered wood which is somewhat patchy in appearance because the higher level of pigmentation will give a more even colour appearance. This finish is also available in 75 shades.
  • Solid stain offers the greatest colour depth of all, covering the majority of imperfections while allowing the texture of the wood to peek through lightly. This is perfect for heavily weathered wood or where you want your chosen colour to appear vibrant. This finish is available in all 3,500 of our stunning colours (with the exception of Aura Colour Stories colours), so you can get more creative and bring a new level of sophistication to your exterior wood. 
Here are a few examples of some of our browns and greens showing how the different levels of transparency impact on the vibrancy of the end colour and the amount of the natural wood grain that is visible in the end finish. 
The colour of the wood itself, and any previous coating will impact on the end colour you achieve, so its best to test your chosen colour first. Our US pint size sample pots, are available in Arborcoat Solid, Semi-Solid and Semi-Transparent finishes.
