Mathys Fassitek Thixo is an easy to apply thixotropic wood stain. This 'Thixo' version has all the protective and cosmetic qualities of the classic Fassitek, but is slightly thicker in texture. This means that a thicker coating of the product can be applied and makes it more convenient to use, especially for overhead work.

Mathys Fassitek Thixo is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use and can be applied directly to already stained wood. The product does not form a film, yet, just like the classic Fassitek, it provides complete protection against UV light and weathering. It also allows the wood to breathe.
