    What compound is in TWP 100 that is not in TWP 200 that allows it to fall under the VOC rules of Canada?

      It is not a compound that causes VOCs but home much evaporates.

        Thank you for the reply, The problem is I have use TWP 100 cedar tone and it has lasted on my Log Cabin 5 years the product is Brilliant, but I have been told that the TWP 200 can not be use over top of the TWP 100 and I would have to strip the logs before applying the 200, I am not prepared to do this way to much work. What are my options?
        Thanks

          Just strip and brighten for prep. That is your only option.

    I am building a playhouse for my kids. I built a platform which is 4’ off the ground out of treated pine. I bought untreated pine for the house that is going on the platform. I didn’t think about this but there will be over hangs under the roof that will be exposed to elements and I’m wondering if 1.) can this be applied to an untreated pine (just bought from Lowe’s and never been treated) and 2.) will the wood be fine/durable after being treated with TWP 100.

    I just built the platform so I’m still going to wait 4 months on that

      Yes, TWP would work for this.

    The previous owners of our property applied Valspar deck stain and sealer. Trying to prepare the gates to refinish I found one side of the fence finish cracked and pealing. Wire brushing and sanding this side removed most, but only most, of the finish and revealed grayed wood beneath. The other side of the gate neither brushed nor sanded, but the finish can be peeled with just a fingernail, coming off like a stretchy latex. Definitely not the way to remove the finish on the gates. Please recommend what I might try with likelihood of success so that I can refinish the gates using TWP100.

        3589 is west side of fence palings showing peeling finish with clear wind-sculpted (sand blasted?) texture beneath
        05810 is close-up of same thing shown in 3591
        0581 is the east side of this same fence portion after wire-brushing and sanding
        0588 shows oversprayed black paint on top of finish
        0587 shows unfinished edges. Some edges have more than enough finish.

          You will probably have sand to remove as a stripper will not work.

    Purchased 20 gallons of TWP 100 for boat dock decking at a condo complex. Applied 15 gallons a week ago & 5 days later one of the boat docks was submerged do to a rise in the river level.
    1) Now there is a white residue or emulsion that exist within the sealer. Tried rubbing it off, but to no avail. Any suggestions ? Should I try recoating it ?
    2) The color purchased, Honeytone, dried way too yellow. I have 5 gallons left (5 gal pail); can I add darker stain to the Honeytone to make it browner ? (i.e. maybe add Pecan or even Dark Oak).

    Please assist.

      1. There is nothing in the TWP that would create a white residue so it is either coming from the wood or something is laying on top of the stain. Without knowing what it is, there is not a way to suggest how to remove it. You may have to recoat it.
      2. Add Dark Oak to brown it some.

        Thanks for the speedy reply. Can I add any petroleum based Dark Oak stain........like form the local home improvement store ? And any suggestions on ratio's of stain to add ?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          TWP Stains · 04/14/2020
          No, it has to be a TWP 100 stain. The ratio would be your color choice as to how dark you would like it to be.

    I’d like to use an oil based stain for marine decking that is pressure treated wood and is 15 years old. It has been pressure washed and looks good. Which product would you recommend?
    Thanks,

    What is the expected life span for TWP 100 Rustic 116? How do I know when a maintenance coat is required? We applied this stain per instructions in Sept 2018. It still looks good but it is slightly fading and losing some of the water beading characteristics.

    We are wanting to stain/seal a camp house we are covering with cypress that was cut off of our land. The logs have been cut a few years but we just got them sawed into board and batten and have already put them up. We are concerned about splitting, cupping, warping. Should this be a concern and would your product help to prevent this and how long do we need to wait before applying it? we live in south Alabama. Suggestions please....

    I have cedar shutters on my my home that I have sanded off all of old stain back to the original cedar wood. The shutters are 15 years old, but in good condition. Do I need to do anything other than apply the TWP 100 prior? Also, is the TWP the best choice for these? Shutters face the western sunset and take a lot of heat/sun.

    Can you put oil based paint over TWP
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 01/02/2020
      Probably not but that would be more of a question of the Paint Brand you use, than the TWP.

    I am staining 6 cedar pavilions. All previously stained with TWP. Using same color. Since using same product, is it still recommended to apply 2 coats. If so, how long do I need to wait between coats? How many days of dry weather is recommended before applying? I see that at least 24 hours is required for drying before next rain event. Thanks.

      Prep with the Gemini Restore Kit first. Wait 48 hours after prep or rain to stain. Apply one coat since this is a maintenance coat. It will need 12-24 hours to dry before any rain.

    1-Is TWP safe to use on redwood furniture?

    2-Which is best for redwood siding in Pa? 100 or 1500 series?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 10/11/2019
      1. Yes
      2. You have to use the 1500 for PA.

    What is the difference between the 100 and the 1500 stain?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 10/03/2019
      VOC compliance for certain states is the main difference. Not all states allow the 100 series.

    At best I will have 28-36 hrs of dry weather after applying TWP 100.
    Doesn't look good by waiting as needing 48 hrs to dry after a rain really complicated things. What is the minimum time for stain to set up before a rain event.

      I own a restoration company and have used TWP since the mid 90's. I've stained near 1000 decks. Ive had it rain on some decks in a far shorter time, 2 hours, and no adverse effects. A lot will do with the temperature and if your deck is in direct sunlight or not. If it's shaded, takes far greater time to dry, so be mindful of the forecast and use live radar. So if it happens to rain shortly after it's stained, don't think it's ruined. Most likely it'll be fine. If water is allowed to sit for a long period of time,(24 hours plus) you can get water rings, so wipe up puddling if needed after the rain. It is oil based, so it does repel water immediately.

    Age of wood - New
    Type of wood - Bald Cypress timber columns/beams and 2x6 T&G spruce ceiling/decking
    Wood Condition - New and all is sanded all sides. The cypress columns/timbers do have some checking.
    There is no finish currently on either the spruce or cypress.
    I am in Western North Carolina near Tennessee on a mountain at around 3000' elevation. The exposure is due north.

    Which product do you recommend and do you custom mix colors? The ceiling will be well protected but the column/beams will be exposed to the elements for the most part.
