The TWP (Total Wood Preservative) brand has been along for many decades. Their line of oil based deck stains is an EPA registered wood preservative designed to penetrate wood substrates and outperform other oil-based brands. TWP has several oil based formulas and multiple colors to choose from. Their 1500 series and 100 series stains are semi-transparent while their 200 series brand is a clear transparent finish.

TWP 1500 Series Oil Based Deck Stain

TWP replaced their old 500 series formula with the new 1500 series. It is designed to penetrate better and dry faster. This formula prevents structural damage and wood deterioration, which could lead to expensive repairs and replacements. The 1500 series stain treats fencing, decking, log homes, wood shakes and wood siding surfaces. The water-resistant blend stops unwanted water invasion that causes wood splitting, warping and cracking along with harmful freeze damage in cold weather areas. Semi-transparent stains come in 9 different TWP colors for the 1500 series line.

TWP 100 Series Oil Based Deck Stain

TWP oil based deck stain is also offered in the 100 series. This special wood preservative is an exclusive blend of professional grade chemicals that preserves wood surfaces in numerous ways. Special ultraviolet absorbers inhibit unpleasant wood fading, discoloring, and graying. TWP 100 series oil based stain is mold and mildew resistant. Similar to the 1500 series it is blended with special mildewcides that naturally resists fungal growth. Both of these TWP oil based deck stains are rated #1 in leading consumer websites. The 100 series stain is offered in 6 various colors.

TWP 200 Series Oil Based Deck Stain

The 200 series is a clear transparent finish available in 4 different tones. This high solid penetrating finish is blended to prolong the life of exterior wood surfaces. This paraffinic oil based deck stain has extreme penetrating properties that soak into aged and porous wood, regenerating the wood’s lost natural oils. The 200 series deck stain replenishes damaged wood fibers by restoring lubricity and flexibility. All the TWP oil based deck stains are VOC compliant and can be shipped to all 50 states with the exception of the 100 series.

What is the difference between TWP 100 Series or TWP 1500 Series? Also, I just stripped off old Stain on 3yo pressure treated pine deck with Behr Stain Remover & Stripper and have Behr All in One Cleaner already purchased for use. Will these be OK for use before applying TWP Stain. I didn't know about your products exceptional rating until now. Want the best results for my Michigan Home Deck. All comments would be very helpful. Next year will have to strip all posts and rails and re-stain no time for this year project. Thank you!

Use the 100 Series for MI. You should be okay with the prep as long as all of the old coating is removed.

What is the difference in the 1500 and the 100 series. I will be using this on our deck. Also, is your product carried in a store or do I get it from you?
