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 am ordering 10 gallons semi transparent stain to use on a cedar sided barn. I would like to know which stain would have the most orange tint. I am leaning towards the 1502 stain Redwood all of the others seem too brown.

    My airless sprayer has a tip of .015 max. Will the 1500 work in this size gun?

    I have used TWP 1511 California Redwood on my deck 18 months ago and I want to give it another coat. How long does it take to dry?

      Prep first with the Gemini Restore Kit. After staining, it should dry in a day but this varies on the weather.

    I have a new deck installed a year ago that is ready for stain. It is about 1000 sqft including steps, railing, accent beams, lattice, etc. Will 5 gallons of stain be enough?[/quote]
    No. See this for help on the amount:
    https://www.twpstain.com/twp-deck-stain-calculator

    Should be closer to 10 gallons for two coats applied wet on wet.[/quote]

    Per your help page and under [b]Staining New Wood and Decking for the First Time[/b], it advises to apply 1 coat for new wood. Is that no longer correct? "Even after the waiting period and the proper prepping, new smooth wood is still not as absorbent as it will be in a few years.[b]We strongly suggest only applying 1 coat of the TWP Stains the first time.[/b] Do not over apply as the TWP may not penetrate into the wood correctly..."

    Your deck is a year old so it is really not "new" anymore. Either apply two light coats or one good coat is fine. If you do one coat, you will need about 7 gallons.

    I finished a new cedar fence last fall. I just power washed it and am going to let it dry a few days. I was planning on using the TWP 100 series but I see Amazon doesn't carry it. How does the 1500 series compare? What are the differences?

    Amazon sellers are not authorized dealers of TWP. Order directly from our website. Both the 100 and 1500 can be bought here.

    We've previously treated our pine camps with a semi-transparent Thompson's waterseal in a gold cedar color. It has been several years and the old stain is very faded and not beading water in most locations. If we go with the TWP1500 series in black walnut what would our prep need to be

    I have an old cedar deck (unknown year of construction, probably 10 years old). I have completely stripped and sanded (60-80 grit). I am in Central Oregon, so lots of UV exposure but lots of snowfall, too. West facing deck gets lots of exposure and is not covered. I have been looking exclusively at penetrating oil stains: TWP 1500, A&C, Penofin, Storm, and Messmer's. Is one of these more suited for this environment than the others?

    Of those, TWP is the only one that is registered as a wood preservative by the EPA. This means much better mildew and mold protection with excellent penetration and UV resistance.

    I have cedar siding above the logs. I'm looking for a stain that would be a shade lighter than the cedar. I used pecan on the logs last time and it is a lot lighter than the rough cedar siding.

    Honeytone is a shade lighter.

    Is a roller adequate for application to deck?

    Rollers can be used but are not the best option. Stain pads and brushes:

    I'm looking at staining my new cedar deck using the 1500 series. A contractor who gave me a bid said he would use the 200 series, which I researched and it appears to be designed for shingles, etc., but can also be used on decks. Question - what is the best series 200 or 1500 to stain the new deck?

    See this for new wood:
    https://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/

    Once you wait and prep, you could use either Series.
