Sansin Offers Free Stain for Projects


Community renewal projects across North America that need materials may benefit from a year-long offer from a wood stains supplier.

The Sansin Corp. is offering its Eco2 wood stain, a zero-waste, solid color, exterior and clear interior wood stain, to qualified projects throughout Canada and the United States.

The company is accepting applications from groups or communities that could use the stains to help beautify and rejuvenate a building or structure important to furthering the group’s mission, Sansin said.

How to Nominate

Project nominations should be sent to

The organization must submit a picture of the existing structure and describe:

  • The project;
  • Type of wood;
  • Why the building needs the donated wood stain;
  • How it would make a difference;
  • Total square footage of the project; and
  • The contact person.

Sansin introduced the Eco2 line in 2012. It has been offered as a limited-edition stain and is available in standard colors of lava, adobe and charcoal.

Some custom colors may be considered for the exterior and clears for the interior of special philanthropy projects, Sansin said.

Based in Strathroy, Ontario, Sansin researches, develops and manufactures environmentally friendly, waterborne interior and exterior wood products and technologies. The company says its stains employ water, not oil, to deeply penetrate and protect wood naturally.
