The new TWP® 1500 formula is designed to penetrate better, dry faster and outperform the previous TWP® 500 series formula.

TWP® 1500 Series is an EPA registered wood preservative which prevents structural damage and wood decay on exterior above ground wood surfaces such as untreated or previously treated fencing, decking, wood siding, log homes and roofing. TWP® 1500 Series resists water absorption that causes warping, cracking and splitting as well as preventing freeze damage in colder climates.

TWP® 1500 Series is a low VOC preservative with special U.V. absorbing pigments that prevent unsightly wood graying, darkening and fading. The selected mildewcides inhibit the growth of mold and mildew which assist in preventing premature discoloration.

TWP® 1500 Series will keep your wood beautiful, fresh and looking new longer. The ease of application and maintenance will allow you to enjoy your investment for years to come.

Where can I get samples so that I can choose the correct color?
Valerie , May 21, 2016
Yes you can use this on cedar wood. TWP wants all new wood to season for 4-12 months and needs to be cleaned and prepped first. If you applied the TWP to a brand new board that was not seasoned or prepped then it will not penetrate as well and can take a few days to fully dry.

I purchased a sample of the black walnut. I will be staining a cedar wooden garage door. I tried the sample on a piece of cedar and it has been over 12 hours and it is still wet and did not seem to penetrate the wood? Is this the correct type of stain for cedar?

Staining a 18 year old deck
Want to refinish my deck again? It is pressure treated wood and have replaced almost half of the boards. What do you recommend to use to strip it or do I just sand the boards and go from there. Also I live in Canada do you ship here or I am close to Michigan is there a location there that sells the Twp 100 or 1500 series?

Pecan is a browny cedar color. Dark Oak is a straight dark brown. There is not a medium brown color with the TWP

Stain Help II
I failed to mentions two things in my previous post: (1) we used the HD80 stripper...EXCELLENT...for removing that awful Behr stain (aka paint); and (2) the wood we'd like to stain is 8-year old treated pine. Its in good condition. Pecan?

Stain Help
I'm looking for a "brownish" (no reds and golds) TWP stain, but not dark. Is Pecan the one I want?

Re-application after 2 years
What kind of wood preparation is required before re-applying after 2 yrs? Is this also a 2 coat application and how long will this re-application last?

re: after deck cleaning
48 hours to let the wood dry.

after deck cleaning
thanks for all ur info.... How much time after deck cleaning could i use twp1500 stain or could it be done immediately ?

re: Pressure Treated wood stain
Yes TWP works very well on PTP. The stain applies wet on wet. You do not let the first coat dry before applying the second coat. The second coat will apply twice as far as the first coat.

Pressure Treated wood stain
Is the TWP 1500 series stain recommended for presuure treated wood or would you choose another brand? Also, does two coats wet-on-wet application in essence double the per gallon coverage and what is the difference between that and a 2nd coat following the 1st drying?

Was reading That TWP1500 is available in clear. I don't see it on your order page.

re: TWP 1500 Specs
Nothing lasts 3 years on a new cedar deck. Two years at best. What your customer wants is not going to be possible.

TWP 1500 Specs

We have a project under construction with a lot of cedar and I was wondering what the warrantee is for the TWP 1500 series? The homeowners want a 3 year maintence free guarrantee. Do you warrantee a product to provide that kind of coverage? Thanks.
