Wood Kote Handheld Colorant Measurement System

Wood Kote Introduces A Handheld Colorant Measurement System For Custom Color Tinting In-Shop or On-Site. “We were frustrated trying to find a simple system to measure colorant and standardize custom stain color formulas,” says Manuel Recio, Marketing Manager for Wood Kote Products, Inc. MiniTint and MacroTint are Wood Kote’s solutions for custom color tinting in the field, in the wood shop or for the occasional in-store use. The hand held devices provide a convenient and extremely accurate method of measuring liquid colorant, flatting agents or other additives. MiniTint has a one fluid ounce (29.57 ml) capacity and dispenses in increments of 1/48th of an ounce. MacroTint has a five fluid once (147.86 ml) capacity and dispenses in increments of 1/4th of an ounce.

WOOD KOTE’s MiniTint and MacroTint system provides solutions for a broad spectrum of applications including tinting laquers, matching and creating paint/stain colors, and changing the sheen of a polyurethane from gloss to matte.

These precision instruments are machined to aircraft quality standards and are designed to last a lifetime wether for constant in-shop or rugged field use. The devices are available directly from Wood Kote through their web site,, and are sold with a 60-day money back guarantee. In addition, formulas for select colors are also available on the web site.

Wood Kote sells solvent-based industrial colorants in 16 ounce high-density polyethylene squeeze bottles with a dispensing tip for neat and easy filling of the Mini and MacroTints. The colorants are available in twelve colors and sold under the trade name Korrect-O.
