We have submitted three wood samples protected with Livos oil to multiple staining agents: coffee, ketchup, shoe polish, marker pen, etc. We have also submitted samples protected with a competitor's product to the same tests. The sample strips were examined after 24 hours.

*Items marked "N/A" were not affected by the staining agent. Stains were apparent upon visual examination from a distance of 30 centimeters. Blotches were much less apparent. It was possible to observe them by dangling the sample strips in the light (by reflection).

These tests were done by FPInnovations. For more information, the complete report (#4906 ACM) is available on demand.
