DEFY 1 Gallon Semi-Transparent Deck Stain for Hardwoods, Natural Pine Description
Size Name:1 Gallon Â |Â Color:Natural Pine DEFY Deck Stain for Hardwoods is a synthetic, semitransparent wood stain specially formulated for use on smooth cedar, mahogany, redwood, and other dense or difficult to penetrate woods. This V.O.C. compliant, water-based formula penetrates deep into wood fibers providing maximum long-term protection from weather damage and color retention superior to conventional stains. It was specifically designed with smaller resin particles to better penetrate wood, which helps to eliminate surface buildup and peeling. This product also works well on composite woods. DEFY Deck Stain for Hardwoods contains powerful sunscreens that block damaging UV rays. Ultraviolet rays cause wood to turn gray and become susceptible to water penetration and decay. Deck Stain for Hardwoods is made with synthetic resins that do not attract mildew and algae like other natural resin (oil-based) stains do. Additionally, this deck stain is a water repellent that reduces water penetration up to 90%. It can be used on interior or exterior smooth hardwood surfaces including: wood siding, decks, outdoor wood furniture, and other hardwood surfaces. For more porous surfaces such as pressure treated, pine and cedar log siding, or rough sawn lumber, use DEFY Extreme Wood Stain. DEFY Deck Stain for Hardwoods is available in three, semi-transparent colors: Cedar Tone, Light Walnut, and Natural Pine. Periodically, as the surface begins to get dirty or dull, simply wash it down with a mild detergent and water. As the weather begins to wear away at the surface and the color begins to fade, a maintenance coat should be applied. The first step in the maintenance process is to apply a coat of Wood Brightener. This will lighten any minor graying and clean the surface. Allow the surface to dry, then apply a single coat of DEFY Deck Stain for Hardwoods.
