TWP 200 Series is now available to be shipped to Canada!

The TWP 200 Series was designed for shakes and shingles but can be used for all exterior wood surfaces such as decking, fencing, log homes, cedar framed homes, etc.

TWP 200 Series is a semi-transparent oil based penetrating finish designed to extend the life of exterior wood such as decking, cedar shake siding, and shingles. Containing a paraffin oil, TWP 200 series penetrates wood extremely well. The Paraffin oil is a "non-drying" oil that enhances the wood cells structural stability. This greatly improves the woods life and appearance.

TWP 200 Series primary function is to enhance the structural integrity and appearance of aged roofing. The finish composition will minimize grain cracking, cupping, surface erosion, water absorption and surface attack from mildew and algae.  Although the system is highly penetrative, the residual surface film is highly resistant to destructive organisms.  The penetrative portion of the product absorbs into aged and porous wood, adding bulk to aged and brittle wood fiber.  This restores lubricity and flexibility to brittle shingles.  At 94%+ solids, these products comply with all current federal and state VOC (volatile organic compounds) regulations.

TWP 200 SERIES will not crack, peel or blister making maintenance an easy task to perform for extended wood protection.

    We ordered TWP200 in Slate Gray 210 last year. The colour did not come out gray and we need more stain for an air-conditioner screen and raised garden bed. Not sure what colour to order - go with Slate Gray again and hope it wasn’t a mix-up?

      Looks like you did not mix it correctly? The pigment does settle and has to be mixed into the stain.

        I’m pretty sure it was well mixed. It was applied last Spring and has faded since then, especially on the deck. It was quite orange last summer. Does this look like it could be Slate Gray on cedar?

          If the wood was brand new then possibly. Was the actual stain gray in the can?

            The deck was 3 years old before we stained it. We used the Gemini Restor-A-Deck kit on it before staining. The stain was definitely not gray in the can. I suspect I was sent the wrong colour and the can was mislabelled. Is it possible to get samples of the other colours in order to match it? Is it okay to redo the deck with a similar colour if I can’t match it (i.e. can’t figure out what colour I received).

    If I'm not mistaken, wasn't Honeytone one of the colors available in the twp200 befor?
    Can it be?

    We have a 9 year old cedar deck that has always had Superdeck transparent stain on it. First few years were fine but since Sherwin Williams purchased them, it now turns black on us within 8-10 months (Saskatchewan, Canada). So this year we used their cleaner and brightened to get rid of the old stain and mildew, and now we are sanding it with 60-80 grit. With your supply being shut down due to covid, it will likely be a while before it get stained. With your 200 series (Canada), I do have a few questions:

    1. Even after using their cleaner and brightened, plus sanding, should we use your stripper/brightened before applying TWP 200? I am guessing the brightened for sure due to sun fade between sanding and eventual staining, but how about the stripper?
    2. Even after sanding and stripping/cleaning, there is no guarantee that all the superdeck that soaked in has been removed completely. Any idea how. TWP 200 will react if there are traces of superdeck left that soaked into the wood?
    3. There is not a lot of instructions for TWP 200 when applying on a deck, as the product info sheet is mainly for shingles or shakes. Would this be a single coat or a wet on wet 2 coat system? Any tricks for deck applications?
    4. For maintenance, What is a good cleaning product to use to keep it clean or washed down a couple times a year?
    5. When it comes time to retreat, just use cleaner and brightened and the re-stain? Any stripping or sanding required?

    I appreciate your assistance in this. Plan on ordering as soon as ordering is back up and available.

    The deck is 14 ft x 20 ft with 42 inch high railings (about 70 feet) of cedar including spindles, and 10 steps with railings. Would a 5 gal pail be enough?

    I attached a couple photos of the deck when it was new and first stained.

      1. Yes, strip and brighten for prep
      2. The stripper will remove it while pressure washing.
      3. Just one coat is enough.
      4. Clean and recoat as needed. Do not need to strip.

      5-gallon should be enough.

    We stained our deck with TWP 200 two years ago and it looks great. There are a few spots in the high traffic areas that could use a bit of retouching. Can we simply apply additional stain over those areas, or do they need to be prepped first?

      Try warm water with dish soap and lightly wash with a car wash brush.

    I live in Canada so the obvious choice would be TWP 200. How long does it take to ship to Hamilton, Ontario and if I was to select TWP200 Clear I see you state it will still gray naturally. Does it still provide some UV protection? What other color would you recommend for a very light color to still expose a lot of the natural wood grain. I will be staining a pressure treated existing deck. Thanks

      TWP Stains · 09/17/2019
      It must be tinted for UV protection. All the colors will show the wood grain. Cedar Gold is lighter and tinted.

    The technical specs say only one coat is needed, but the deck stain calculator says it assumes 2 coats, wet on wet. Is 2 coats the recommended amount for TWP 200 on cedar roof shakes that are older?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/12/2019
      For older wood roof shakes, yes do two light coats applied wet on wet.

    I purchased a large outdoor wood carving. It was recommended by the artist that I use CWP. It is natural wood and portions are stained black. I am not sure of the type of wood. Which TWP product would you recommend. I am thinking the clear 100. Should I use another product because of the wood preservative?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/11/2019
      Clear will not give UV protection. Look at Honeytone.

      Use the Gemini Kit for prep. Only the TWP 200 Series is allowed in Canada. The 1500 is not allowed and never has been. The 200 works very well.

    Is the 200 series good for pressure treated lumber? I need a good stain for a deck, and is able to hold up against all types of weather, being walked on, and shoveled during winter.

      Most use the 100 or 1500 Series for wood decks.

    I added a front porch to my home about 10 months ago. I am looking for a product to seal the deck portion of the porch. I am leaning towards a clear finish. Which one of your products do you recommend for the pressure treated pine deck.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 03/21/2019
      You must use TWP in a tinted color stain if you want UV protection from graying. Look at the TWP 100 or 1500 for a porch.

    I just had an Eagle carved from a large piece of pine. Part of the Eagle was burned to add some color/texture. When I picked it up it had some mildew in it. The carver recommended spraying with a 10% bleach/water solution and then sealing it with TWP, but I do not know which one to use. I do not want to add any color to it, just seal it as it will be in the direct sunlight. Your recommendation, please.

    Hi TWP,

    I have been browsing on deckstainhelp.com and others to try to find a good stain/protector for my 2 new decks that are using cedar boards and posts. I live in Ontario, Canada. The boards are relatively pale beige. I was thinking of using TWP 200 clear to keep the color as it is. Would you consider this a good choice? Also I am assuming this stain also protects from UVs to some degree to retard graying of the boards? How is the UV protection vs the non-transparent stains? Would you recommend a non-clear one and for what reason? I can send a picture if it will help.
    Your input would be appreciated so I can make an informed decision. Also what is your recommended wait time for aging before applying the stain?

    Thanks and best wishes

    André
