Q:Can I apply this on laminate floor?
by|Mar 12, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Doityourself - Applying oil-based gel stain to a laminate floor is possible, but there are some important considerations to keep in mind: Gel stain can indeed be used on laminate surfaces, including floors. It provides a way to achieve the look of real wood on laminate. Keep in mind that laminate surfaces mimic wood grain patterns but are not natural wood. Laminate is essentially a plastic material with a printed wood grain appearance. Gel stain sits well on laminate and can give your floor a beautiful, freshly stained look. Proper preparation is crucial for successful results. You need to clean the laminate floor thoroughly to remove any dirt, grime, or gloss. Then lightly sand the surface using a fine-grit sandpaper. This will help the gel stain adhere better and ensures a smoother finish. Use a foam brush or a regular paintbrush to apply the gel stain. Foam brushes work well because they don’t leave brush marks. Apply the gel stain in thin, even coats, following the direction of the fake wood grain. Allow each coat to dry completely before applying the next one. Regular cleaning and maintenance are essential to keep your newly stained laminate floor looking great.

    A:  Michael - Yes, you can put Waterlox over our oil-based stain. You must make sure the stain is 100% dry or you risk the stain being removed. ~ Hardwood Reflections

          Not great. Misleading dry directions.
          Gray goes on very dark (which I liked) however after letting dry over 72 hours this stain lifted right off the butcher block when gel applied (of the same brand) Now reading other reviews/company responses that say dry time is days and days (7-10) So which is it? 2 days or 10? Product label and Home Depot site both say “min 48 hours dry time” logic would say 72+ is enough. It’s not. Looking for different product.

          McDiedro - Did your butcher block already have a mineral oil or stain finish on it? HFAria

            Expensive. Satin top coat can mislabeled.
            Both the 1/2 pint gel stain, and the 1 pint satin top coat are 237mL. Vellly interesting. Ebony stain sucked into HR birch top very quickly. I wiped onto 2' by 5' piece in small sections, rewiping with clean rag as I went. Blended well.

              I used this to seal and put a nice smooth finish on my butcher block desktop that I built to work from home. It's a great product. I've bought two cans actually to finish two desks. Definitely recommend it.

              Used this satin top coat along with HD's dark walnut gel stain on the below Ash Butcher Block also from HD: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Hardwood-Reflections-Unfinished-Thermally-Modified-Ash-4-ft-L-x-25-in-D-x-1-5-in-T-Butcher-Block-Countertop-1525HDFJEGTA-50/311324662 Results were amazing (see pictures). Note again that I used both the stain and the satin top coat to get this result. I would highly recommend purchasing the two together. Especially, if purchasing one of HD's butcher blocks. I applied the satin top coat after allowing the walnut stain to dry for a full week. To apply, I ended up using a white t-shirt, rubbing on liberally and rubbing off excess almost immediately. After each coat cured for 24 hours I would sand with fine grit sandpaper and then reapply. I repeated this process 4 times. I waited one week before attaching the butcher block to a work desk base. The surface was cured enough for use after this wait period. Two months later and the desk still looks great. Highly recommend!

                Used this gel stain on the below Ash Butcher Block from HD: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Hardwood-Reflections-Unfinished-Thermally-Modified-Ash-4-ft-L-x-25-in-D-x-1-5-in-T-Butcher-Block-Countertop-1525HDFJEGTA-50/311324662 Results for amazing (see pictures). Not that I also purchased HD's Satin Topcoat from the same line of Hardwood Reflections line of stains and finishes. I would highly recommend purchasing the two together. Especially, if purchasing one of HD's butcher blocks. Stain was easy to apply. I ended up using a foam brush to apply and an old white shirt to wipe off excess. I would recommend wiping off pretty immediately after applying. The wood soaked in the stain quickly and only required one generous coating. Don't be afraid to over-apply as long as you are wiping off excess thoroughly and are uniform in your approach. I let the stain dry for a full week before applying the satin topcoat. For my application, that much of a wait period was sufficient. The end result was perfect and exactly what I was looking for. Highly recommend.
