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.

    Hi, I pressure washed my log home and am looking to try and keep the logs as light as possible, would the Natural stain be my best choice? Thanks!

      Honeytone is the lightest tint that that will offer UV protection from graying.

    I stained new pressure treated wood last year with 1501 Cedartone. It's a little more orange than I like. Can I put Pecan over Cedartone and eventually the orangeness will go away?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 08/04/2018
      You would need to strip the 1501 off if you want to switch to a lighter color like the 1520 Pecan.

    I read your directions regarding application of stain to new wood. Would this apply to pressure treated as well? I am asking regarding new pressure treated railing specifically. Could I use the gemini kit to clean, brighten and then stain? Or will I have to let the wood age as directed?

      TWP Stains · 08/04/2018
      Yes, all wood types. You will have to wait.

        Even if Kiln dried?
        See below.....


        The fast and easy installation of the 8 ft. railing kit makes it the perfect product for the do-it-yourselfer and the professional deck builder. Made of quality pressure treated #1 southern yellow pine and black aluminum balusters, your new stylish railing will be the talk of the neighborhood. The wood components are molded with a decorative high-end finish and are kiln dried after treatment for extra stability and are also ready to stain or paint.

        Just trying to avoid doing it twice!
        Thanks for your advice in advance!

    I understand the 'wet on wet' application of the 1500 stain. My question is however, is it bad to allow the first coat to dry and then do a second application?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 08/01/2018
      Possibly, yes. If the first coat dries and cures it could hinder the second coat from fully soaking in. This varies though based on how porous the wood is.

    Does the Natural 1530 have pigment, or is it just clear?

    If a deck that has old stain on it is cleaned, but not stripped will the stain still work?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/17/2018
      If the stain is over a different brand, it will need to be removed prior to using the TWP.

    I am in the Seattle area and am redoing my deck which is 10 feet above ground. It is about 20 years old with some boards replaced. It is cedar. In the past, we have used Flood CWF in Redwood and like the look. Sadly, it does not hold up well. I am considering TWP 1500 in Redwood. Deck has been pressure washed and cleaned with Olympic Deck Cleaner. Will the TWP 1500 be the right choice for me? Thank you, Dave.

      No the colors do not match exactly between series. Clos but not exact.

    You state that a second coat is applied when the first is still wet. Is it okay to walk on the the first coat? How long after application?

      Mix the stain well in the 5-gallon pail well first before pouring it into the smaller containers.

    I'm currently working on a large backyard renovation that includes 170 feet of (brand new) cedar fence, and a new deck. After doing some research, I have decided that the TWP 1500 series stain is probably my best choice when it comes time to complete my project.

    If you have ever seen the Food Network show "The Kitchen", they have an outdoor set with a wooden fence. I love the color of it, and I'm hoping that I can get a similar result in finishing mine.

    Which of the TWP 1500 series colors would you think comes closest to this color? I have looked at all of the sample photos for the various colors, but still would really appreciate your advice.

    My fence is made of rough-sawn cedar pickets on pressure treated framing and top-cap. I'm in Pennsylvania.

    Thanks!

      Rustic 1516 would be closest but it would be a little redder. Another option might be 4 parts 1516 and 1 part 1503 Dark Oak. This will add a little more "brown" to the Rustic color.

      See this about the new deck as it cannot be stained right away: https://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/


      FYI, We do not allow external links so we had to remove.

    I have 1000 square feet of T&G pine to apply to my porch ceiling that I purchased 15 years ago. I sanded it with 100grit to remove discoloration.

    Your natural and honeytone color samples are nearly identical. Is that because of the wood type used for the natural? Do you apply this product wet on wet? Should I apply this product to both sides of the wood to avoid "cupping" if moisture appears inside soffit ?

    We have a 12 year-old Mahogany deck. During the first years we had it, we would sand and seal with a clear Timber Oil finish that had a beautiful sheen. The deck looked like beautiful hardwood floors. We have always strived to retain the original color of the Mahogany vs. letting the wood go gray.

    Since VOC legislation, that kind of sealer is no longer available. So, we have tried virtually every kind of "clear" sealer on the market. Some of them left a yellow tint to the wood, which wasn't at all desirable. Some have left black gunk. Some had barely lasted half of the summer season. Last year was the worst so far after using Thompson's--black gunk and for the first time, didn't last and the deck is gray--the most gray that it has ever been.

    So, we are looking for our next product to try.

    4 questions:

    If we use the restore a deck kit--cleaner and brightener--will we have to sand the deck to get back to a Mahogany color or will the brightener restore the original color?

    We really don't want to change the color of the Mahogany. Do we need to use TWP 1500 Clear or Natural, or would Natural change the color?

    The deck is exposed to a lot of sun and weather. Will the TWP 1500 clear last the summer season?

    Will TWP 1500 leave a black gunky residue on the deck as it begins to break down?


    Thanks in advance for the response.

      The TWP Clear will not provide UV protection from graying. The Natural will as it is tinted/colored. You must have tint in your stain if you want UV protection from graying. The Natural will enhance/change the color of the wood.

          TWP Clear grays naturally in months but protects from water, etc for the year or longer. Clear stains or sealer will not give UV protection for a year. You must have a tint in the stain for UV protection

          The prep kit does restore the color but you will need the Stripper/Brightener Kit to remove the Thompsons.

          TWP does not leave "black" gunk on the deck but the Clear will gray naturally.

            Bridget Cunningham · 04/30/2018
            So, do I understand correctly that the Brightener neutralizes the Stripper?

            And do I understand from your response above that we should not need to sand the Mahogany to get the color back from gray to the original Mahogany color--the stripping and brightening should do it?

              The stripping and brightening will remove the Thompsons and restore the color. You should not have to sand.

              The brightener does neutralize the stripper.
