Pre-Colour is a water-based stain for unfinished and sanded interior wood surfaces, such as floors, stairs, furniture and panels. The stain colours the wood and enhances the natural wood grain.


Products in use
Product, room and floor temperature must be between 15-25°C. Wood humidity must not exceed 12%. Ensure good ventilation during application and when drying. The wood must be newly sanded, use grit 100-120 for the final sanding. Vacuum thoroughly. Clean the wood with WOCA Intensive Wood Cleaner and leave it to dry for at least 8 hours before applying the stain.

Always remember to test on a less visible spot to check the compatibility of the surface with the product.

  1. Thoroughly shake the container of Pre-Colour, both before and during use. Containers with different batch numbers should be mixed to avoid colour mismatch.
  2. Apply an even coat of undiluted stain along the wood grain with WOCA Applicator. A more uniform colour is obtained if the wet stain is polished into the wood using a polishing machine and a beige pad. Use at least 1 L of Pre-Colour per 8-10 m²/L. On vertically mounted wood, apply from top to bottom. Leave the surface to dry for 6-12 hours at 20°C.
  3. Sand with a green pad to obtain a smooth surface and vacuum thoroughly.
  4. The surface must be finished using one of WOCA’s oils, following the product instructions.
The surface must be finished using one of WOCA’s oils, following the product instructions. Pre-Colour cannot be used alone as it only provides colour to the wood, and not protection.
