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 again,  I see there is a clear #1500 available.  does not have UV protection.  is UV protection totally necessary in a heavily wooded location.  this staircase does get a minor amount of direct sunlight, briefly, but most of the time the sunlight is filtered through tree leaves & branches.  Jeffrey

      Clear does not have UV protection. Yes, you need tint to prevent graying.

    1530 natural on a 4' wide X 16 treads high exterior staircase w/ 36sq.ft. landing done with Red Batu & Meranti?  don't want to add color, want the natural beauty of the different colors of mahogany to show.  need to protect in this dense tree location.

      You must have tint/color for UV protection. Trees will not stop UV graying.

    I did the gemini prep clean/brighten to get ready for adding a maintenance coat of 1504 black walnut. The sun fading is still pretty irregular and noticeable. I was afraid to get any closer with the powerwasher.  The wood seems porous though and ready to accept the stain. Should I go forward wet on wet with the 1504 after 48 hours?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 10/24/2022
      No, you need to redo the prep as it will not stain evenly like this. Either get closer with the pressure washer while using Gemini Kit or use the RAD Stripper.

    Is it necessary to apply a sealer on top of the stain?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 10/20/2022
      No, and you cannot apply a sealer over a deck stain. It would peel if you did.

    Do you mix/shake the stains prior to shipping or should I take it to the hardware store to shake up?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 10/19/2022
      You will need to mix it when you receive it as the pigment does settle. Use a 5-gallon drill mixer that attaches to any drill.

    Do you recommend any particular kind of paint sprayer for application? Or is brush better?

      Cannot drop below 40 the first night after staining.

    What is the recommended shortest amount of dry time before rain comes. Having a tough time scheduling application the rain is forecasted soon after the 48 hr dry out time from last rain. And it’s only getting colder

      Rick · 10/16/2022
      Thank you so much for the responses. My last hurdle is that I waited over 48 hours after rain and I  can still still physically see and feel some damp areas. Should I still wait?  Using the 1500

    1 or 2 coats on a deck that had paint removed by a dimabrush then quickly sanded (one quick pass) with 60 grit ? 
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 10/07/2022
      Probably two but hard to say as it depends on how porous the wood is.

    We stripped and brightened our 3 uear old deck on Sunday and planned to stain today (Wed) to allow the 48 hours dry time, however woke up this morning to (unforecasted) light rain.  Assuming it stoos this morning, will we be okay to stain tomorrow (Thursday) or do we need 48 hours to dry again?  We have a planned trip out of town Friday - Sunday and then rain in the forecast Monday.  We can cancel our trip if necessary but prefer not to.  As always, thank you! for your prompt reply!

      48 hours of drying after rain or prep. You will push it by staining it 24 hours later.

    Love the product. Been using it for years. Wondering why this year the application came out a bit blotchy? (dark spots in areas). Used the same method, cleaner + brightener, pressure washed, then stained. Any suggestions for the next time?

      Looks like the prep was uneven. Do you have an after prep pic?

    What's the difference between the original and 1500 series.  I've used TWP for 20+ years but not the newer series.  My neighbors can't believe my fence looks so great after almost 30 years since I put up and I want to keep it looking that way.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 09/12/2022
      The difference is VOC content. The 100 Series cannot be used in all states.

    We have a 1 year old cedar fence rough sawn and plan to use 1500 Rustic or Dark Oak, clean and brighten. We have a double sided friendly neighbor fence, the same on both sides. See attached pic.

    Can we do a single coat on all horizontals and verticles? Or do we need to do 2 coats wet on wet? What is the pros and cons of single vs 2 coats on our specific fence design? If 1 cost is possible then which color would look best?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 09/09/2022
      Two coats is suggested with rough sawn as it may dry blotchy with only one coat since the wood is very porous.

        Michiyo O · 09/09/2022
        Thanks for your reply! I saw the below on your website that says one coat for most instances. IF we choose one coat which color Rustic or Dark Oak would be better for less blotchyness?

        Note: New Rough Sawn vertical wood/fencing can be stained right away with no wait and with no prep as it does not have mill glaze and is very absorbent. Just make sure the wood is fully dry. If Rough sawn wood has aged or oxidized (grayed) then it will need to be prepped with Gemini Restore Kit. One coat for most instances of newly installed Rough Sawn wood.

        Additionally when using the Gemini kit can the wood be damp? Or does it have to be completely dry?

          TWP Stains · 09/09/2022
          Two coats for rough sawn wood that is a year old.  Darker colors will not make a difference.

          Wood can be damp for Gemini Kit.

    Well used western red cedar deck stained with TWP 1500 series in color “Pecan”.  Prep was done using RAD stripper + sanding with 60 grit and orbital sander + RAD brightener (note: we removed our picket rail and will be replacing it with cable rail). Pecan is a beautiful color and looks nice on cedar.

    How long after cedar fence installation should I wait to apply TWP 1500? The wood seems very dry and it’s been very hot this summer. I’ve read you should wait 4-8 weeks for fence to dry out but this does not seem applicable. What is the square foot coverage? I’ve got 3,900 square feet of fence front and back.

    How long does the stain need to be applied before it can get wet?  
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 09/01/2022
      6-24 hours. Depends on UV exposure and temps.

    We have dew moisture in the morning…should I wait until the deck is dry from the dew before applying the stain?

      Of course. TWP cannot be applied to damp wood.

    I stained 48hr ago and it still looks wet. Will this dry tacky? I did a 2nd wet on wet coat and used the brush broom you sell to apply and back brush puddles. How long until it’s fully dry? It’s been slightly humid but nothing crazy.

    Hi I would like to use an airless spray Wagner Control Pro 190 Paint Sprayer to apply two 1501 to my cedar fence. Can you advice what type of tip sprayer I need for this?

      Any fan tip will work. Wider will be faster.
