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.

    In the 1500 Series:

    -Honeytone is the lightest
    -Natural is slightly richer then the Honeytone and offers very good UV protection
    -Cedartone is a brownish cedar color

    Cedar should sit for about 1-2 months then lightly clean and brighten the wood with the Gemini Restore-A-Deck Kit

    I have a new cedar shower i need to stain. It gets direct sunlight all day long. I\'m having a hard time picking a stain color. I Was thinking about the cedartone, but wasn\'t sure if that was too dark? Is the natural tinted? Would the natural hold up as well in the sun as the cedartone?Thanks Also what is the prep for staining new cedar? I was told I have to let the wood sit?

    I live in SE PA and have an outdoor shower. I\'ve used sections of red cedar fencing for the enclosure, which I installed in Feb of this year. The enclosure sits on above ground concrete piers that are the footers for the deck posts of a raised deck. The cedar gets very little direct sunlight and is not in contact with the ground. I am thinking of redwood, rustic, or a color that will complement my maderia-colored Trex decking, which I would use this for the sides facing out. However, I\'m concerned these colors will make the interior surfaces too dark since it under the deck so I would like to use an untinted,clear product. Is this type of product available in the 1500 series? Thanks

    Air temperature.

    The specified range of temperatures for application is 45-90 degrees. Is this the air temperature or the decking temperature? I have seen other products specify the decking temperature but was unclear about TWP. Thanks!

    For optimal results you should always remove the previous coating as much as possible prior to using a new or different stain such as TWP. This will give you maximum penetration and adhesion to the wood.

    TWP works great on cedar wood!

    Used a product called Defy less than two years ago. Have recently used a deck cleaner and pressure washer to prep this deck for restaining. Will I need to also strip this deck before using your product? Does your product work well on cedar? (I\'ve run into some stains that do not.)

    Mike, all of the technical info is in the right column. 45-90 degrees is the range.

    What temperatures can I apply stain? The lows here in Omaha are in the mid 40\'s right now. Does it have to be over a certain temp?

    The 1515 is the closest.

    According to the old brochure we have the Light Cedar (515C) looks darker than the Honeytone(1515)shown on the screen. Which stain color in the 1500 series is the best color match to 515C?

    Yes the TWP 1515 Honeytone replaces the TWP 515 Light Cedar

    Does the 1515 Honeytone replace the 515C Light Cedar? I used the 515C a few years ago and I am going to re-stain my deck.

    How long does 1500 series last on a deck and what do you mean by \"clean before re-applying\"? (soap & water or a special cleaner?

    TWP Stains · 09/26/2011
    Yes you can. Make sure to clean and prep the wood first.
