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.

    Is washing with a bleach solution absolutely necessary?

      You have to prep but do not use bleach. Use this kit: https://www.twpstain.com/gemini-s-restore-a-deck-cleaner-and-brightener-kit

        The instructions specifically say to clean with 1 part water to 1 part household bleach, which contradicts your recommendation above. Which is it?
        Also, for maintenance coats, if TWP was applied originally, does the original application need to be removed as stated in the instructions for "Sealed Wood", or does that only apply to non-TWP products?

          The Gemini Kit is the proper way to prep now and in the future for reapplications. TWP can be reapplied over itself.

    Is there less wood penetration with the 1500 series because of the lower VOC?

    In between raindrops, we are in the process of re-staining our deck using TWP 1500 series. The daytime temps this week will be in the 60's but dropping to the 30's and 40's at night. Are these temps suitable for this process?

      TWP Stains · 05/10/2021
      It cannot drop below freezing the first night after staining. The rest is okay.

    What does "low VOC" mean?  How is it different from  the TCP that doesn't say "low VOC?"

    Are these oil base stains compatible with deck joist flashing tapes which may be butyl, asphalt, or rubberized asphalt?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 05/04/2021
      Yes, plus you are not staining the back side of the boards, just the top.

    I am going to be applying the 1500 stain to a deck with some new black powder coated hardware, does the stain harm metal in any way?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 05/03/2021
      Avoid getting the stain on spindles. It does not harm it, just looks messy.

    How much stain do I need to stain a fence of 193 feet? Do you have a video of how to stain using this product in a sprayer? What does wet on wet mean?

    Hi there!I want my cedar deck to turn natural gray. I usually wait for things to turn gray then oil them clear. My question is, will applying clear (that will allow to turn gray), slow down the turning gray process or make it spotty? Or is it better to apply oil and give it protection as it turns gray? My location is coastal Maine
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 04/23/2021
      Prep and then use the clear. It will gray naturally then.

    We are getting ready to re-stain our deck and just realized we have an unopened gallon of 1500 series stain from when we stained two years ago. Can we use that gallon first or are we beyond the shelf life?

      It should be fine as long it is not clumpy when you open it. Make sure to mix all new and old together before applying.

    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?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      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?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 04/04/2021
      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?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          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!
