No matter the job, big or small, StainSelect is the new choice to upgrade your next project.
Columbia Forest Products’ Trumann, AR facility is proud to introduce StainSelect™, our new stock stain program. We combined our expertise with factory coatings and our PureBond formaldehyde-free hardwood plywood to create a stock stain program with proven colorations and species that are in demand today. We offer a wide selection from whites to darks and everything in between. With small order quantities available, StainSelect is ideal for smaller closet, fixture and kitchen cabinet jobs in which a factory finish may be preferred and previous stain minimums couldn’t be met. The advantage is that real hardwood can now be substituted in areas where “plastic” laminates may typically have been used. Your customers will immediately appreciate the aesthetics that only “real wood” can provide.
StainSelect is your new stained panel solution. Proven. Domestic. Green.
Our experience in delivering over 16 million UV coated panels since 1996 along with our PureBond formaldehyde-free technology allowed us to create a comprehensive stock stain program. With 10 proven color selections and in popular species of Red Oak, Maple and Cherry, we believe we are matching the trends that are in demand today. We offer a wide range from opaque whites to transparent darks and everything in between. With small order quantities available, StainSelect can be specified for closets, fixtures and kitchen cabinet jobs in which a factory finish may be preferred.
