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 used TWP on my deck over five years ago (too long I know) and I am now looking to re-stain. Which preparation would you recommend and how many coats of stain? Thanks

    I already stripped the water based stain off my deck with a Behr stripper and will clean it using the Behr cleaner, brightener. Can I now use TWP 1500 stain after using these Behr products to strip and clean. Sorry, not optimal, but I just found out about your stain. I was going to use a Behr stain.

      As long as it is cleaned well and free of previous coatings, you should be okay.

    hi. i sanded the stain off of our mahogany deck with 40 grit and then 80 grit. Do I have to use a stripper because I realize there is stain between the deck boards that I can not sand off? Also, can I stain now or do I have to use a cleaner and brightener?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 09/04/2020
      Clean and brighten after sanding. Nore sure if you need to stop between the boards but that would be up to you as it may show through.

    Is there a clear twp 1500 stain? I live in Maine, so I can’t use the 100 series but would like to keep and preserve the weathered gray color on my existing cedar decks. I’m also putting in a new cedar deck, should I use a roller to cover the vertical sides of the wood before installing the deck on the pressure treated frame? thank you very much.

      Clear is an option when you choose the color in the drop-down color choices. No need to coat the verticals prior.

    WE have a 30 year old redwood deck and am happy to say that it has held up great using your products. However there is an area that gets more sun and weather and needs new boards to replace them. After sanding the old boards(testing on those removed) they absorb the stain(california redwood) very differently with some going redish or yellow and others going almost black. Is there a way to get a more consistent outcome with retaining? Is sanding an issue? Also worried about how to blend color with the new wood and how soon to apply stain on new wood?

    Any suggestions?

      The fix for getting all boards to look the same is to use an interior hardwood stain on the new boards, let it dry for 24 - 48 hours and then apply TWP. Apply the Hardwood stain with a rag, lightly rubbing the color into the new boards; just like redoing hardwood in your home. This approach has wood great for me in replacing board for some of my customers.

        You cannot apply the TWP over a hardwood interior stain.

      For prep, you should strip and brighten the older wood, not sand. It is not possible though to get new wood to match older wood. The new wood will stain lighter since they are less absorbent.

    Mold, not mild. Basically, I want to use your product to seal and protect. I just want to use the Minwax to color.

    I want to stain my deck black. Can I mix Minwax True Black with your clear 1500?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 08/19/2020
      No, you cannot use Minwax or any interior stain on exterior decking. It will not work or give any UV protection. You also can never top coat a clear sealer over a stain for exterior wood.

        Cristin · 08/19/2020
        Thank you for your reply! Could you first use your product to seal and protect the wood from mild, mildew, etc. and then apply Minwax over that just for color? I understand it wouldn't offer protection, it would just be for aesthetics. The problem is that I can't find an oil based exterior stain in black.

          TWP Stains · 08/19/2020
          No, it will not work. What you would like to do is not possible.

    Thanks

    On my deck there are some cracks that I applied wood filler to. Can the stain stick to the wood filler?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 08/08/2020
      Sorry but wood filler does not work for deck stains. The stain will not "stain" the wood to blend and it will stand out.

    We really like Dark Oak but need something in that same color but lighter for our front porch. Is it possible to mix Dark Oak and Natural for a lighter color?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 08/03/2020
      Yes, you can mix but better to use the Clear, not Natural.

    1501 Cedartone turned my western red cedar fence yellow. Do you think I got honeytone by mistake? It is quite yellow.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/16/2020
      No, that would not be possible. Final color always varies based on the wood type and ager of the wood.

    I just applied the 1520 to our one year old deck. We noticed some runs(day after applying). We tried to brush it out with no success.
    What can we do to fix?
    These areas are on the horizontal railings.

    What is a reasonable expectation for the life of a two-coat application of TWP? I have a 6 year old deck w/ unknown semi-transparent stain and will need to be stripped. Just trying to get a handle on how long before I’ll need to use Gemini Restore (think that’s correct) and restain. Thanks for your feedback!

    TWP 1500 Dark Oak

    Deck A:
    Applied one coat 2 years ago, heavy traffic, faded and has wear.

    1A) use RAD or the stripper
    2A) apply RAD/Stripper with scrub brush & power washer?
    3A) how many coats needed after RAD/stripper
    4A) planing to re-stain every 3 years, will it always need RAD each time

    Deck B:
    Applied two coats last year, wet on dry resulted in shiny finish, also has white streaks assuming it’s sap leaching..

    1B) will white streaks wipe off with mineral spirits? Will mineral spirits tarnish surrounding stain?
    2B) how do I apply wet on wet? Do I apply second coat before it dries (and can I walk on) or mist with hose next day and stain?
    3B) to get ride of shine, use RAD then 1 or 2 coats of stain?
    4B) can bug juice Ben applied after fact or must it be mixed with stain

      Deck A
      -Clean and brighten for prep with the Gemini Kit and pressure washing. Apply two coats of stain. You always have to prep when recoating.

      Deck B
      -No, you cannot remove sap with mineral spirits. Nothing really works well for this.
      -See here for wet on wet. https://www.twpstainhelp.com/twp-stain-wet-on-wet-application/
      You cannot apply TWP to a damper or water wet deck.
      -Use the RAD Stripper to remove the over applied shiny TWP. Brightener after then dry for 48 hours. Then two coats wet on wet after.
      -Bug juice has to be mixed into the stain.

    Is TWP safe to use on outdoor furniture? We've loved its durability of it on our deck and haven't had the best luck trying to stain our outdoor table with other products.

    I will be applying TWP 1500 to my new deck. Do I need to look for a window of some dry days, to allow it to dry properly? I know it says dries in 12-18 hours but am concerned what rain would do if hitting it a day or two after application.
