Van Dyke Brown

Hoover 778BN Van Dyke Brown is the world's best selling pigment for staining wooden products. It produces a very dark top color with golden undertone. Van Dyke Brown was traditionally manufactured using naturally occurring lignite. Unfortunately, lignite was difficult to disperse, had limited lightfastness, color strength, and was expensive. Hoover's research team found an alternate way to linearly match the traditional Van Dyke's color space and overcome the traditional pigment's short comings.

Our 778BN intensively milled to give our customers an easy to disperse pigment that is lightfast and higher in color strength than the traditional lignite-based material. Plus Hoover was able to this at a very competitive price.
