Substrate Testing

Many factors come into play when choosing the appropriate stain system for your building. Different approaches are required for each structure to ensure that both the finish’s beautiful look and longevity are achieved. During on-site substrate evaluation, a water absorption test, moisture content test, and pH measurement are usually the first tests to be completed. They will be followed by CSN Ion tests if needed.

Our Operations Managers will determine if any further substrate testing is necessary, depending on the building materials, prior treatment, and current condition. If required, our experts will perform laboratory analyses and design the best solution for your building’s needs free of charge. Nawkaw also provides reports on stain performance on the customer’s specific substrate and certificates for your tender documentation.

Durability Testing

Nawkaw stains never peel, chip, or fade. A standard adhesion test is all it takes to showcase why mineral and acrylic stains are more powerful than even high-quality latex paints.

Our stains are tested to ASTM standards (or their international equivalent) by our in-house Research & Development team. Our internal results are cross-evaluated by independent laboratories.

All our products are tested for durability. These durability tests verify that the performance of our products and the bond they form with various substrates meet our high standards.

Surface Preparation

Surface preparation is just as important as the application of our stain products, because any residual materials, or even dirt, can create barriers between the stain and the substrate to be treated. At Nawkaw, we use only the highest quality products. From site preparation, necessary equipment rentals, hot and cold concrete or masonry cleaning, on-site training, and safety, to cleanup and material disposal, we take care of it all.

Product Application

Nawkaw Certified Stain Technicians are the best in the industry. No matter the project’s size or scale, the incredible artistic talent of the people who apply our stain are the reason our services are requested all over the world.
