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.

    We have untreated/unfinished mahogany that we would like to put a clear finish on. Do you offer a product in "clear"?

    Bill, You cannot apply a top coat on the TWP. I would use the 1500 for this.

    The 1530 Natural is tinted. Yes you can use it on your wood.

    Is the "Natural" in the TWP 1500 pigmented or is it completely clear? I think my deck is pressure treated fir. Is your product acceptable for this?

    It does offer UV protection and it is tinted. It is not the lightest color but the second lightest. The Honeytone is the lightest.

    I am thinking about using Natural (1530) for a T&G white pine screened porch ceiling. I assume that provides no UV protection, but I also assume that since it's a ceiling and gets no sun, that would be ok. I assume it will darken up the pine a little and help prevent mildew. Do you agree with this?

    You could use any of the tints for redwood. The lightest tint is the Honeytone. Take inconsideration that the lighter the tint the quicker the sun will fade the color. You should wait 4-12 months before staining then prep by cleaning and brightening the wood.

    No need to do the bottom.

    I have a new redwood deck in San Francisco which faces west and gets plenty of afternoon sun. It is a nice mix of heartwood and sapwood and I would like to preserve the color contrast. I was going to use the 1500 clear but realized it does not offer UV protection. Will the 1502 redwood maintain the color contrast? Is there another color that offers UV protection with minimal tint? Also, is there any benefit to staining the bottom of the deck as well? Thank you.

    Natural has a decent amount of tint. TWP will wear eventually. This varies on the amount of traffic. It could be 1.5-3 years. The key is to re coat before the stain goes to full failure.

    Hi, I\'m curious if 1500 Series deck stains would start to develop wear patterns in the deck color from foot traffic? We\'d like to go with Cedartone on our 5/4 pressure treated deck, but if wear patterns are a problem we may go with Natural since it looks to be closer to the color of the wood itself as a lighter stain.

    1. Use the Gemini-Restore-A-Deck Kit to clean and brighten the deck.
    2. One kit should be enough for a 30x12 deck.
    3. Minimum temperature should be 45 degrees.
    4. Typically needs to be redone every 2-3 years.
    5. If the stain is gone then nothing else is needed.

    I have an old pressure treated lumber deck about 30ft x 12 ft with wood rails and stairs. It is all greyed out. the deck is on the west side of the house and gets sun from noon to sunset.

    1. What do I need to do to prep it for staining? Most of the deck has not seen any stain for over 5 years (how long I own the home- do not know if it was ever done)
    2. How much of each item will I need?
    3. The temp is hovering between 40-60 deg. on Long Island, should I wait till the spring or can I still stain it before the leaves fall?
    4. How often will I need to restain it?

    5. I had put Duckback semi transparent on the stairs but most of the lumber has greyed out after 1.5 yrs. We rebuilt the stairs 2 years ago. Anything I need to do special to prep this section.

    thank you.
