SolidTone® finishes are composed of solid color pigments mixed with topcoat. A coat of primer is applied first. After drying, the product is scuff sanded and receives a coat of solid color.
Panels that require a glue-up when made in solid wood will be manufactured in Solid MDF or Hybrid Material when ordering a SolidTone® finish. If a panel is ordered with a Rub Through option, then it will be made from Solid Wood.
We suggest using SolidTone® colors on the following wood species:
- Maple – Paint (Solid MDF Center Panel)
- Birch – Paint (Solid MDF Center Panel)
- Poplar – Paint (Solid MDF Center Panel)
- Solid MDF (1 or 5-Piece)
- View all Paint Grade Wood Species
For best results we recommend ordering Maple due to the natural characteristics of this material, the grain is less likely to show through after painting.
