Finishing

When staining or coating Hoop Pine plywood, please ensure that compatible products are used, in which water based finishes are recommended. Austral Plywoods have tested and approved stains from Livos Australia as suitable for use with Hoop Pine plywood. Ensuring against other oil based coatings penetrating the face veneers and strongly highlighting the natural figure within the timber, causing it to darken considerably.
