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 have varying ages of a redwood fence that I want to match as best as possible, all previously unstained. I have cleaned/brightened/pressure washed (all boards), but I can still see a decent difference between the 2 boards my neighbor replaced. I was planning on using the 1500 but would using the semi-solid be better for even-ing it out? If not should I try using different stain colors? Any other suggestions?

      TWP Stains · 04/08/2021
      Yes, it is not possible for new and old wood to match when using the semi-transparent colors. You will get a better blend with the semi-solid.

    I have a deck that was built 10 years ago. The structural lumber is PT SYP. Some of the joists have a green bio-film on them which is unattractive (see photo, decking has been removed). Should I simply clean this or, to best prevent this in the future, paint or stain these structural elements? Is there a paint or stain that contains an effective anti-microbial component that will prevent this in the future?

      You can clean and brighten and it would remove most but not all, if deep in the wood grain. There is not a way to prevent it from coming back.

    New rough cut hemlock ( board & baton) was using for siding. After testing for % of moisture in siding, TWP 1500 was applied. Fantastic stain! Best stain ever.

    I am getting ready to stain my new deck for the first time (completed September 2020). The deck is constructed from AC Green (big box) pressure treated pine. Some rail posts have some minor splitting after the typical Chicago winter. I was considering filling them before using your TWP1500 pecan color product. What would type of filler would you recommend to be compatible with your product and are there additional prep requirements before staining?

    Please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Dave P

    We are refinishing a dock. The wood is redwood and I will be using a diamabrush to remove the heavy wood coating that is flaking and pealing off. Afterwards I will use belt sander with 80 grit to smooth it off some.
    What is the best product to use for a dock? 100 0r 1500? I was going to use a "clear" but I saw that it does not have UV protection. What is the next best "color" to use on the redwood to try and keep it as close to natural coloring as possible, yet still have UV protection?

      For final prep after sanding, use this kit to open the pores: https://www.twpstain.com/gemini-s-restore-a-deck-cleaner-and-brightener-kit

      Which series to use depends on where you live?

        We live in Minnesota, so we can use 100 or 1500 I believe. As this is used over the water, is one better for protection against mildew?

          TWP Stains · 03/18/2021
          They work the same when it comes to mildew. Most use the 100 Series in MN.

            We used 3 samples on the redwood dock boards pictured. We prefer the look of the 1500 Clear stain. 2 questions: 1.) what will occur over time to the wood without the UV protection in clear.
            2.) what color would be "closest" to clear that has UV protection for this redwood?

              1. The wood will gray naturally in a matter of months.
              2. Honeytone 1515.

    We stripped and stained our deck with TWP 1500 series two years ago. We are getting ready to add another coat of stain this year. Will power washing be a sufficient prep or is your brightener necessary as well?

    We had our brand new Ipe pool deck stained with 1500 Natural last February. It is time to restain. The deck has some black spots (possibly mildew?). Can we just go ahead and stain with the 1500 Natural or do we need any cleaners first? Thanks!

    Is there any other product I could add over this to give the finish wood a semi-gloss or glossy look? I’m looking to stain a bench but also want a finish to it.

      Sorry but no, you can never apply a coating over the TWP. It will peel.

    What is the difference between the 100 and 1500 series? I’m about to paint or stain our deck (haven’t decided yet which one). A friend used the 116 rustic for a cedar look on his but I also saw the 1516 one as well. Just not sure what to use now.

          Hard to say without seeing a picture as to the cause. Just one coat would work.

    We are having a colored Pine table being built for outdoors. See attached picture. The "blue" coloring will turn brown without protection. Was recommended by the shop to look at your product for a "wet on wet" protection. We live in Colorado at 7,500' elevation and the sun can be really tough on wood products. Want to get the best protection for uv and the wood, but be as clear as possible to enjoy the wood coloring. Thanks for your help!

    I prepped my deck to be stained. I was ready to use anther product, until I came across TWP 1500 semi- transparent stain and the reviews. I live in northern Illinois, and can't use TWP 100.
    I am considering TWP 1530 (natural) 0r TWP 1515 (Honeytone). How much darker is the Honeytone compared to the natural?

    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.
