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.

    i have a deck that is stained with a solid water base stain( 3 years ago) so if i strip it power wash it and put wood brightener on iy will i be able to use TWP 1500 oil stain on it once it dries completely.

      You cannot strip off a solid stain. You will need to remove by sanding this off. Once removed, use the Gemini Restore Kit for the final prep.

    Have a 4-year old deck of 2X6 treated pine. Have stripped (Cabot semi) and brightened with Restore-a-Deck. What is the difference between your Series 1500 vs. 100? Which do you recommend? Also would I gain significantly from the extra process of sanding?

      Sanding is not needed and can create issues with absorption. As for which type, that depends on where you live?

    My deck includes (pressure treated southern pine) built-in benches. Some stains from other manufacturers specify "not for sitting surfaces or furniture". (I assume this is because clothing may get stained). Are any of your oil-based stains suitable for sitting surfaces?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 05/29/2018
      Yes. TWP is a full curing stain so it does not rub off.

    I just put new Pressure-Treated on my deck, its been at least 9 months exposed and ready I'm ready to stain it, looking for the most natural look as it like the contrast between the black square spindles and the light current color of the wood. Is the natural or the honey the lightest color?

    Would Smith Contractor 190216 2-Gallon Sprayer be good enough to spray TWP 1500?

      That sprayer looks "cheap". Not sure how well it will work. See this for spraying tips:

        I see that you recommend the Chapin 25020, I read some reviews that it keeps clogging, how would one prevent that if I were to use the Chapin 25020 with TWP 1500
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          TWP Stains · 04/20/2018
          Clogging has nothing to do with the actual sprayer but the material going through it. If the Stain or Cleaner is mixed properly with a smooth consistency, then you will not clog the sprayer.

    Hello, we just built a new home in Central Missouri. We have used cedar beams on the exterior and would like to preserve the existing fresh cedar color. What would be the best product for sealing and longevity?
    Also we have a lake house that has oak logs and never been sealed. We would wand just a clear wood preservative on the logs.

      "Clear" = zero UV protection with wood stains from graying. Do you want it to gray naturally? If not, you must use a stain and that will enhance the wood grain. You can see the color choices above.

        jim d · 04/20/2018
        OK, clear on the Oak Logs. I do not want the new Cedar to gray, so a stain.

        So I am assuming the 1500. Correct?

        Will I be able to re apply the same product (s) down the road if needed without major prep work?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          TWP Stains · 04/20/2018
          Yes on the 1500 Series. For reapplication, just clean and recoat.

    I would like to apply stain to external posts and beams that are Doug Fir surrounds over structural posts. They were originally stained by the contractor with a stain that wasn't appropriate (Briwax). The posts and beams are in various states of still fully stained (those without sun exposure) to bleached white. From what I've read, TWP 1500 is the right stain product. What products/process should I use to prep the ones that are bleached white vs. the ones that still have some stain on them. Also, can you please direct me to the page that has coverage information. I live in the San Francisco Bay area so don't have cold winter issues. Thanks.

      Hello, the TWP cannot be applied over either so it will need to be removed. Power sanding may be the way to go. Once all of the current stain and coatings are removed, you can use the TWP. Coverage is 150-200 sq feet per gallon.

    I have stained a pavilion beams and headers, with twp 106. Can I go over that with a TWP 1500? I see someone previously asked the reverse version of this question.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 03/10/2018
      No, you cannot. The 106 will need to be removed first.

    We have just finished an Alaskan yellow cedar deck with redwood trim.
    Our first question is do we try to get it sealed now before Montana winter sets in or do we wait and let the wood cure? Also, do we do the underneath boards or leave them untreated?
    We want to enjoy the beautiful light wood of the yellow cedar but obviously cannot use the clear with no UV (it is a south facing deck). The natural looks quite dark on the monitor. Is it?

    Curious if I can use TWP on my raised garden beds made from doug fir to help preserve the wood to last longer. Are there any toxins in TWP that could leach into my veggie boxes?

    Once fully cured, there are no issues.

    I have a deck that was stained in 2015 with TP1502 redwood stain. The railings are still in great shape. So am only going to do the top-board for the railings and the deck boards. Thinking I want to goto the 100 series redwood 102. Any concerns with them not matching color-wise?

    The 102 and 1502 are not the exact same color. In addition, if you want to switch to the 102, you will need to remove the 1502 first.

    Hi, I used Pentofin on my hardwood deck last year and I was wondering if I can use TWP 1500 over it or do I need to strip/restore the deck prior to applying? Thank you

    You will need to remove the Penofin first. Strip and brighten. Penofin comes off easy.
