TWP 1500 is a Semi-transparent Oil-Based wood stain and preservative that is allowed in all 50 states.

The new TWP® 1500 formula is designed to penetrate better, dry faster and outperform the previous TWP® 500 series formula.

TWP® 1500 Series is an EPA registered wood preservative which prevents structural damage and wood decay on exterior above ground wood surfaces such as fencing, decking, wood siding, log homes, and roofing. TWP® 1500 Series resists water absorption that causes warping, cracking and splitting as well as preventing freeze damage in colder climates.

TWP® 1500 Series is a low VOC preservative with special U.V. absorbing pigments that prevent unsightly wood graying, darkening and fading. The selected mildewcides inhibit the growth of mold and mildew which assist in preventing premature discoloration.

TWP® 1500 Series will keep your wood beautiful, fresh and looking new longer. The ease of application and maintenance will allow you to enjoy your investment for years to come.

We have used this product twice on our pressure-treated wood deck (. It applies easily and looks terrific when done. We are DIYers with limited experience with this sort of project, and had no trouble following the application directions. We had to address a lot of wood damage before applying it--severe UV damage, mold and mildew--but with the right prep, we couldn't be happier with the outcome. The second time we used it, we did over-apply a bit and had a lot of shiny excess stain after a few hours of drying. We read the tips here on the website and the next day we wiped off the excess using a light misting of mineral spirits and shop rags. Easy fix and it looks great. Never any peeling, which is just what we wanted, and it made our heavily damaged wood look better than we thought possible. I love finding a product that works as well as advertised.

    I've done a 1500 wet-on-wet application.  If I decide the color needs to be a little darker can I apply another coat (same color) after it fully dries?

    Gate recently installed. There is also a fence in back of the same make - rough western red cedar - and age - a couple of months. Have decided to go with TWP 1500. Looking at the fence and comparing to the wood on the front porch, I am thinking of going with the 1530 Natural instead of the Cedartone. I don't really want to change the color of the gate and am afraid the Cedartone will make it darker or oranger. Any thoughts appreciated.

    Should I use the TWP protectant of preservative on natural bamboo fencing?  I’d like to keep the natural color, but still want UV protection.  What color do you recommend?  Which product would be best?

      Sorry but the TWP stains we sell can't be used for bamboo.

    Using RAD (which btw really is awesome rad effective) Attached are some before and after stripping/cleaning/brightening. I stripped, cleaned and power-washed PT lumber deck (of 25 yrs) that had been stained (solid stain, mostly worn off, plus deck had mold w/ deep spores and strong UV damage). Wood came out basically new looking. Very impressed with RAD. Will be using TWP 1500 to finish off. Now deck is looking so unexpectedly good, I'm now looking at the 200 spindles and 163' of railing that was done in Semi-solid Behr and in comparison looks terrible. I know I cannot stain over spindles, so am actually considering painting or replacing them. At his moment all railing solutions are overwhelming. My Question: will stripping and power washing vertical spindles and railing at another date ruin the new stained flooring? Would I be able to spot touch up under the railing with the same stain next year? Thanks in advance.

      If you strip the railings later then it will strip off the TWP on the floors so that will all have to be redone.

    Has anyone ever had results from mixing Pecan (3gal) and Dark Oak (2gal)?I'm looking for a mid-tone brown in the 1500 Series. Thanks

      You can mix colors of the same series. You would have to test this on your own though as we do not have any pictures.

    I'm sorry for my previous one word post. 
    I hired pros to apply this stain to our deck. Within an hour of their finishing, we got a heavy rain for about 10-15 minutes. I called them, concerned, and was told it will be just fine, that the stain already penetrated the wood. But Google says different. Can you tell me whether the stain has been compromised by rain so soon after application? 
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 08/20/2021
      The only way to know is to let the rainwater dry off the deck and then evaluate then to visually see if compromised.

    Last stained deck using One Time stain (uses a bonding as opposed to oil or water based product). Will 1500 TWP cover it well? I don't want to darken the wood any more but also need the UV protection. Which color do you recommend?

    I just installed an outdoor shower made of new, planed, western red cedar.  Should I wait to treat it with your semi-transparent, oil-based stain (1501 Cedartone), or apply it ASAP before discoloration starts?

    Do TWP Stains work well on IPE wood?  I need to retreat some deck railing/posts and have not used TWP products in the past.  If this product would be good to use can you recommend the 100 of 1500 series?  The railing has high exposure to the sun and I'd like something with a good UV protectant.  Is there a side by side chart that identifies the differences between the 100 vs 1500 series?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/23/2021
      You can use TWP on IPE but IPE requires annual coatings due to the extreme density of the wood.
      The difference is VOCs between the twp and what is allowed in your state?

        Alison · 07/23/2021
        Perfect, thank you for the information. Living in California, I’ve compared the 200 and 1500 and I think the 200 would be the better product for IPE that is exposed to sun 90% of the day. Would you agree?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          TWP Stains · 07/23/2021
          No, you cannot use the TWP 200 Series on IPE. You will need the 1500 series.

    I had a contractor install a small new redwood deck and a new gate. They chose to use miniwax stain (a non-exterior oil-based stain).
    This was about 3 months ago. The deck is starting to look pretty bad, it has a strange inconsistent faded color from occasional wetness and looks rather dry. Part of the gate is starting to lift up from dryness. I’m not sure what the best steps are from here. I live in Southern California.

    I want to apply a new stain and provide some protection to the wood.  What is the best process at this point? 
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/11/2021
      Remove the Minwax first and then stain with the TWP 1500 Series. Post some pictures for removal help but you probably need to sand it off.

        David · 07/16/2021
        Here are some pictures. 

        If sanding is necessary, should the Gemini's Restore-A-Deck Cleaner and Brightener Kit be used afterwards?
        What would you suggest as the time frame between each phase through staining?

          TWP Stains · 07/16/2021
          Use the Stripper and brightener kit for prep:https://www.twpstain.com/restore-a-deck-stripper-brightener-kit-detail

          You do this one day and then let dry for 2 days or longer to apply the TWP.

            David · 07/16/2021
            So no sanding needed then?
            Can I wait a week after applying to stripper and brightener?  If so, anything special to do after waiting so long?

              TWP Stains · 07/16/2021
              You may need to sand a little after the stripping. You can stain within two weeks of the prep.

                OK, thank you for the guidance.
                I'm assuming it would need need a wash (at least for dust and dirt) if it's been a week or so before applying the stain.  Is that correct?

                    OK and regarding the stripping and brightening. 

                    Should I strip and brighten, then assess if sanding is needed? OR Just do the strip part, then assess if sanding is needed?

    Just used your product 1530 on my deck and it came out the best ever ! Thinking ahead till next time I'm concerned that reapplication will make the deck to dark. Im wondering if i can mix a 1500 with a 1530 to cut it down or just use the 1500 clear  TX.

      You should use the same color and when you prep correctly with the Gemini kit, the stain will not get darker with additional coatings.

    Used this for my Cedar Deck last week.  Came out awesome.  I am now building a Cedar Pergola and I am going to be using 4x4x8 Cedar posts from a local lumber yard.   I would love to stain them with the rest of stain I have left over from my deck.  Any advice on how to prep the posts before staining them?  Do I use the cleaner and brightener like I did with my old cedar deck?  Any advice appreciated

    I'm in the process of removing a water-based stain from my cedar fence and would like to restain it with TWP 1500 Series. After all the tedious work I do not want to have to do it again and want a stain and color that will last for a while! :-) I notice that you have small samples available. What is the process to request them? Thanks in advance!

    Hello, I have a new deck built in June 2020 of pressure treated lumber. Since it has been a year, should I do the wet-on-wet two coats method or just do one coat  for now?  I’m planning on using your 1500 stain. Thanks
