TWP Deck Stain CanadaNot all wood stains and sealers, especially oil based formulas, are compliant in Canada. Canada has Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) concentration limits in place to protect the environment and the health of Canadians. However, there are some quality oil based wood stains that are compliant with these strict laws. One such product is TWP 200 Series.

Total Wood Preservative (TWP) 200 is an oil based stain that protects against structural damage and wood rot for above ground exterior wood surfaces. The great news about TWP now being sold into Canada is that it is a low VOC preservative with unique UV shielding pigments that reduces wood fading, discoloring and graying. TWP uses select mildewcides that naturally inhibit the growth of fungal molds and mildews.
