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.

The surface Prep Instructions of new Cedar Shakes calls for water wetting of the shakes 2 times, waiting at least 48 hours after each wetting step. This is to open wood grain and remove tannins from surface. Won't the wood grain close back up after the drying period is over? TWP200 is the product. thanks

    Will this work for pine siding for a lakeside cabin in northern Ontario?
    It may be newly milled wood so what moisture level must the wood be and how does one check for that?  Also can this be sprayed on or is it best brushed?  Thank you

      Yes, it will work great but see here about new wood: https://www.twpstainhelp.com/prepping-new-wood-for-twp-stains/

      You can spray and back brush drips.

        After reading the prep instructions unfortunately the siding cannot wait 4-12 mths to be dry enough to stain. It needs to be protected for the winter. Do you have a stain can be used in Canada on ‘new’ wood shortly after installing?

          It does not need to be protected through the first Winter. Prep and staining in the Spring is perfectly fine.

    Hi,

    12 yr old deck with several coats 1520 (Pecan) over the years. I live in Canada so plan to switch to the 200 series. No stain has been applied over the last 3yrs so the old 1520 is about 1/2 peeled off. Couple questions: 1. Do I need to use a stripper/brightener? If so which do you suggest? 2. What color in the 200 is the closest to 1520 Pecan?

        appreciate the prompt reply! Just want to confirm the color suggestion. When comparing the color pallets on the website the Butternut 207 looks a lot darker than the Pecan 1520. Our deck is cedar but we chose the pecan as we didn't like the reddish color some Cedar colored stains produce.

          TWP Stains · 08/23/2022
          It is darker but it is also the closest to Pecan. The next closest will be Cedartone 201.

    I have a cedar sided house and live in Indiana. I have used the 1500 series before, but wondering if the 200 series would be better. The 1500 series is ok, but loved the when I was able to use the 100 series.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 08/22/2022
      The 1500 would be your best option unless your siding is rough cut or shakes/shingles. You would want the 200 Series then.

    Would you ever consider a 50 50 mixture of TWP200 clear and some other TWP2XX stain?  What would that look like?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 07/22/2022
      You can mix any colors you like of the 200 Series. No way to know for certain what it would look like on your wood until you try samples.

    I have new cedar shakes that I want to retain the natural color they now have.  Not installed yet.  Is TWP200 CLEAR the best?  Not sure how to best apply this to the shakes.

      For UV protection from graying, the stain must be tinted, not clear. any color that you like will work.

    is it possible to order larger containers like a 50 gallon drums ? we install 3,000 lf fencing projects , it would be easier to have large drums to spray from.

    Have a Western Red Cedar rough sawn pergola already 18 months old unfinished. Probably waited too long but I am looking for the ultimate seal/preservation for the Pacific Northwest climate, Canada so I am limited to TWP200. I see comments it is formulated for shakes and shingles. Is this suitable for dimensional lumber?

    What is the lightest colour pigment that is not TWP200 clear? Is TWP 201 lighter than TWP203?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      TWP Stains · 05/03/2022
      Yes, the TWP 200 Series will work very well for this. 203 Cedar Gold is the lightest color.

    We have just reshingled our Massachusetts home with  western red cedar shingles that have been preprimed by the manufacturer (Teal Cedar) with a gray oil based primer.  We really like resulting the mottled look, and are looking for an oil based stain, perhaps with a little gray tint, to protect the shingles, particularly where the carpenters had to shave the ends or sides of a shingle to make it fit.  Is TWP200 Clear or perhaps TWP210 Slate Gray a good choice?  Can the TWP200 Clear be used to dilute the colorant in the TWP210 Slate Gray if the latter has too much stain for our taste, or are the formulations not compatible?

      You cannot apply the TWP over a primer so it would not work for you here.

    We put 206 Russett on our front porch in 2016. Now almost 6 years later we want to restain for longevity, but don't want the porch color to get darker. Would you recommend using the Gemini Kit for cleaning and then using a 100 Clear stain or doing the Gemini Kit and using TWP Russett 206 again? Thanks!

      TWP Stains · 03/05/2022
      You cannot add Clear over a stain color. Use the same color as prior after the prep.

    For a deck walking surface is it advisable to thin TWP 200 with 25% mineral spirits? Does this affect drying time or duration of protection?

    Hi, I’m just finishing installing ~1200 ft sq of green rough cut cedar sidewall shingles in Oregon (although some walls have been done for 3+ months) where the high VOC TWP101 is allowed.  I’m planning to use the Gemini restore kit and then I was planning to use TWP101 Cedartone. I’m just learning about TWP201 Cedartone. Would you recommend one over the other? Why?Also, a neighbor applied TWP101 and it looked really nice, if you recommend TWP201, is the color the same as 101?Thank you in advance,Joe

      The 200 Series is made for shakes and shingles. You can use either though. The colors are not the same between Series.

        Thanks for the response.  What is the advantage of the 200 series for sidewall shingles over the 101, and how are the colors different? Darker, lighter?How long has the 200 series been around, I’m only family with the 100 series. Thanks again, Joe. 
        I might have to see if I can get a sample of the 201.

          Colors will vary based on series and the age of the wood and type of wood so no way to say for certain what the difference would be.
          The 200 has conditioning oils for the shakes and shingles that keeps them from drying out internally. It has been around as long as the 100 Series.

    I just purchased the TWP 200 and I will be applying it to a cedar fence.  I was planning on applying 2 coats but it seems that this is a 1 coat system.  Would it be bad to apply 2 coats for better protection?  Also, what is the best way to apply if I don't have a garden sprayer?  Paint roller??
    Thanks

    I was told by my cedar shake manufacture to find a product that is deep penetrating and non-film forming. Would I be getting this in a 200 series?

    I am ready for a maintenance coat on my 210 slate Gray pressure treated pine deck.  The original coat was done about 3+ years ago.  I cleaned with just plain soap and water and let dry for many days.  I did a test board and the resulting coat is much more Gray than original coat…I think because the pressue treated pine had natural tannins perhaps?  Do I need to tint the new 210 product to achieve the brown/Gray look I want?  And with what?  Thank you

      I am sorry but it is not possible to tint the 200 Series. In addition, make sure to prep with the Gemini Restore Kit, not just plain soap and water.https://www.twpstain.com/gemini-s-restore-a-deck-cleaner-and-brightener-kit

        Back to the tinting. While you cannot add a tint to it, you can mix in another color of the 200 Series into it. Possibly adding a gallon or two of the Butternut Btown into your Slate Gray would give the desired look.
