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'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

    Weather has been in the 70s the last few days.

    If I used 1530 Natural a couple of years in a row and wish to go with a little darker stain (1516 Rustic), do I need to follow any special procedures?

    Can a finish be applied over this product in say a period of 6/8 years.

      You can not apply a different coating over the TWP.

    We've used 1501 a couple of times and its time to refresh.  Our deck is 20 years old - originally kiln dried cedar and very nice quality - but when I've sanded and resealed, scratches appear pretty easily.  Is there a way to harden the cedar with another oil treatment prior to the 1501?  Or work it in?  I'm hoping to really get the oils back in to create a harder finish.

    Is this safe to use on table/benches?

    The label says 12-72 hours to dry. Would this be very accurate drying time. Today will be the third day. Do you think it will be ready to walk on after 96 hours? Which would be 4 days. It’s lakefront in northeast and weather has been sunny and cool and there is always a wind blowing on it.

      You should be okay, just make sure it is dry to the touch.

    Is washing with a bleach solution absolutely necessary?

      You have to prep but do not use bleach. Use this kit: https://www.twpstain.com/gemini-s-restore-a-deck-cleaner-and-brightener-kit

        The instructions specifically say to clean with 1 part water to 1 part household bleach, which contradicts your recommendation above. Which is it?
        Also, for maintenance coats, if TWP was applied originally, does the original application need to be removed as stated in the instructions for "Sealed Wood", or does that only apply to non-TWP products?

          TWP Stains · 05/15/2021
          The Gemini Kit is the proper way to prep now and in the future for reapplications. TWP can be reapplied over itself.

        And then apply stain?

    Is there less wood penetration with the 1500 series because of the lower VOC?

    In between raindrops, we are in the process of re-staining our deck using TWP 1500 series. The daytime temps this week will be in the 60's but dropping to the 30's and 40's at night. Are these temps suitable for this process?

      TWP Stains · 05/10/2021
      It cannot drop below freezing the first night after staining. The rest is okay.

    What does "low VOC" mean?  How is it different from  the TCP that doesn't say "low VOC?"

    Are these oil base stains compatible with deck joist flashing tapes which may be butyl, asphalt, or rubberized asphalt?

      TWP Stains · 05/04/2021
      Yes, plus you are not staining the back side of the boards, just the top.

    I am going to be applying the 1500 stain to a deck with some new black powder coated hardware, does the stain harm metal in any way?

      TWP Stains · 05/03/2021
      Avoid getting the stain on spindles. It does not harm it, just looks messy.

    How much stain do I need to stain a fence of 193 feet? Do you have a video of how to stain using this product in a sprayer? What does wet on wet mean?

    Hi there!I want my cedar deck to turn natural gray. I usually wait for things to turn gray then oil them clear. My question is, will applying clear (that will allow to turn gray), slow down the turning gray process or make it spotty? Or is it better to apply oil and give it protection as it turns gray? My location is coastal Maine

      Prep and then use the clear. It will gray naturally then.

    We are getting ready to re-stain our deck and just realized we have an unopened gallon of 1500 series stain from when we stained two years ago. Can we use that gallon first or are we beyond the shelf life?

      It should be fine as long it is not clumpy when you open it. Make sure to mix all new and old together before applying.
