Defy Extreme Wood Stain utilizes Nano Particles (Similar to Sunscreen) and High Grade Synthetic Resins. When combined they will reflect the sun and provide UV protection that has never been seen in a tinted wood finish. This is a First in the Industry!

Defy Extreme Wood Stain - Can be used on exterior smooth or rough wood surfaces including: wood siding, decks, outdoor wood furniture, and other hardwood surfaces.

Defy Extreme Wood Stain:

  • Utilizing Nano-Particles and Synthetic Resins. Nano Light-Stabilizers block the sun's harmful UV rays preventing graying
  • Nano particles help prevent mold and algae
  • Semi-Transparent wood finish adds color and protection to your wood
  • Stains and seals your wood from water penetration
  • Water-Based with easy soap and water cleanup
  • VOC Compliant and Eco-Friendly formula
  • Leading protection that will outperform all tinted transparent wood stains


Nanoparticles are similar to Sunscreen. When the Particles are distributed at a rate of over 30 trillion per square inch, they will reflect the sun and provide UV protection that has never been seen in a Wood Finish.

Could you please recommend best finish for a t&g pine ceiling(outdoor deck)

Thank you

Coats on cedar siding?
I am cleaning and staining the cedar siding on my house and bought the Extreme Defy cedar tone semi transparent. The can says to apply two wet coats to most woods but only one to cedar that is horizontal. I assume that means decks and such. It says nothing specific about vertical cedar and I want to know if I should apply two wet coats or only one to the sides of my house.

re: Defy stain be painted over previously stained wood
You must remove the previous coatings first.

Can Defy stain be painted over previously stained wood that is still in good condition, or must you clean off all old stain?

I recently purchased (smilies/cool.gif gallons of Defy Extreme stain. I received a 5 gallon pail of cedar tone and (3) 1 gallon pails of natural pine. I need to exchange the (3) natural pine for (3) cedar tone. Please advise. Thank you.

Marine Seal by Defy only comes in 5 gallon pails. The Extreme does come in single gallons.

Mary, Coverage is about 150 sq. feet per gallon for one coat. You will need a couple of more gallons.
TheSealerStore , August 03, 2014
The Directions say to use only one coat on cedar, but do not give the expected coverage with one coat. I'm assuming it would not be quite twice the coverage given for two coats?

I have @ 525 sf of deck to stain. It's cedar, about 12 years old. I've maintained it and now have prepared it with deck cleaner and brightener.

I have two gallons of Defy Extreme Stain (from doing the rest of my decks last year). I'm assuming they will cover 175 - 250 sf? So should I get one more gallon?

Found DEFY info
I found the answers to my questions at: http://www.defystainhelp.com.

I was not able to view the videos. Using a new Mac Book Pro with OS X 10.8.4

You might want to provide this link for customers on DEFY product pages.

RE: DEFY Extreme: Application, Maintenance & Stripping
1. Wet-on-wet application. How difficult is this? How critical to performance?
2. Will DEFY Stain "readily accept itself" for long-term maintenance? How long does it last in real-world conditions?
3. I've heard most water-based deck stains have to be stripped when needing maintenance, contrary to most oil-based stains. Is stripping is necessary, how difficult is it? What type, and level of toxicity chemicals are needed, for instance sodium hydroxide?

applying over Defy Epoxy stain
Can't find a contractor in my area willing to do just the side that needs work so I guess its just me. I have spot failures (after 4 years)on a solid (no windows) south facing wall. Do I need to strip the old Defy epoxy stain off before applying the Extreme or just clean and brighten, then restain the whole wall? What's the easiest way of doing the strip and clean prep? (You betcha I'm getting a stain sprayer!) Can I pply two coats of the extreme after the prep, or just one?

re: reapply/maintain Defy Extreme
If you reapply before full failure then you would just need to clean.
TheSealerStore , March 20, 2013
To reapply/maintain Defy Extreme, do I just need to clean, or will it be necessary to sand or strip?

re: Defy Extreme Wood Stain expected durability
It depends on the conditions but 2 maybe 3 years is normal.

re: sales manager
I would wait at least a month to let it dry. Make sure to use the Defy Wood cleaner and wood brightener to prep the wood. On new redwood I would use the Defy Deck stain for hardwoods as it penetrates better.

I have a new deck--do I need to wait 2-3 months before I stain it. It is all heart redwood. I want to go with Defy-but which one do I want. I am torn between the Defy Extreme Wood Stain and the Defy Deck Stain for Hardwoods. I live in Idaho and the deck is exposed to sunlight all the time.
