Two new transparent iron oxide (TROX) colorants are now available as part of this company’s Monicolor K range. The colorant line is reportedly suitable for point-of-sale tinting of alkyd-based wood stains with low VOC levels. The new TROX colorants enable the mimicking of different wood substrates.

When decorating wooden surfaces, the desired effect is often one of staining rather than coating to generate a transparent look. The new colorants are the transparent version of the traditional iron oxide yellow and red colorants, and can reportedly generate effects that mimic particular wood types.
