Siennas are one of the oldest pigments used by mankind. These natural Iron Oxides are known for their durability and are considered a permanent pigment. Raw Siennas are both lightfast and chemical resistance.
Hoover 204RS is processed to a lower extent than Hoover’s Best and Better series of Raw Sienna and that cost savings is passed on to our customers. Customers should expect a lower level of dispersability from Hoover’s 204RS, along with greater lot-to-lot color variation. Raw Siennas are one of the most versatile pigments on the market today. They are used in almost any application, but are most often recognized as one of the prime pigments used for stains and glazes in wood coatings because of their transparency and yellow tone. When people picture the woods oak and pine, they most often are picturing those woods stained with a Raw Sienna.
