We cannot Ship TWP 1500 To Canada. TWP 200 Series is Allowed in Canada

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.

    One other question: Do we need the Gemini Restore a Deck Kit (2 step cleaner and brightener) to apply before we use the TWP 1500 series stain - on new wood that hasn't been weathered or gray? I am hoping we can just apply the TWP 1500 to new wood so as to avoid the extra labor costs of having to clean and brighten the wood first.

    And to confirm, we don't need a separate sealer after applying the TWP 1500 series, right?

      Yes, you must prep new wood. Do not skip this. You can not apply a sealer over a deck stain like TWP. No need.

    Hi, I live in sunny Los Angeles, CA. We installed a deck/porch 2 months ago. What's the risk that the stain won't take on the wood since I'm not waiting the recommended 4-12 months before staining?

    Also, we just just installed a gate fence/entry to that deck only about 56" wide and 4.75' tall a few days ago. What's the risk of staining that gate too early (eg only after waiting a week or two after the install of new wood)? 

    Will the stain just wear off more quickly bc it won't adhere to the wood as well if the wood were more weathered/older? Or will it not work as effectively? other?

      It will fail faster if you do not follow the proper directions. You may end up stripping and redoing in the Spring.

    I plan to stain a 20 year old deck/steps leading to a dock and dock. It was stained 3 years ago. A few boards were replaced in august due to rot using treated wood. Twp 100 and 200 5 gallon are out of stock. Will Twp 1500 be an alright substitute?

    On a new redwood deck, can I apply a (single) coat of 1500 without waiting a year?  I'm in California and the sun is beating on the deck consistently, so I'm thinking I'm better off getting some protection on it.  It's about four months old.  Thanks.

    We had a new redwood deck put in Spring 2017 and have let it age. We are now ready to clean, brighten, and stain. We've chosen the TWP 1504 Black Walnut.

    The deck is about 1050 square feet. I've read conflicting advice on 1 coat or 2. Product says two coats, wet on wet; your site says for the first time only use 1 coat. Please advise so I know how much to order.

    Also, how much cleaner and brightener shall I order?

      Year deck is over a year old so you will need the two light coats applied wet on wet. You will need about 10 gallons for the two coats and two of the prep kits as well.

    Yes you can blend the TWP with other colors of the same series. We do offer samples for testing:

    I live is a damp wooded area in Pennsylvania so I have decided that the oil based TWP 1500 series would be best for my deck. I will need almost 10 gallons of stain. In my quest for a more custom color my question is has anyone ever combined two stain tints with success? I am thinking of combining (1516 Rustic with 1503 Dark Oak) or (1504 Black Walnut with 1502 Redwood)

    Since you have already used the 1500, it would be best to stay with it. You can clean and brighten the wood for prep. No need to strip. If you wanted to switch to the 100, you should strip as it is a little thinner in consistency than the 1500.

    I applied 1515 to PTP deck 4 years ago. After thorough deck cleaning with cleaner/brightener and power washing, I am ready to reseal. Looking for guidance between the 1515 and 115 sealer. I live in Michigan. Also, since I would be putting TWP over TWP I assume there is no need to strip. Please confirm.

    150-200 Sq. feet per gallon for the first coat. Second coat applies at 250-300 sq. feet.

    Look at the Armstrong Clark in a semi-solid color.

    I live in upstate South Carolina and I have an 11 year old deck that needs to be restored. I had to replace a few of the old floor boards the other day and I am trying to figure out what stain will work for me. I wanted to go with the TWP 1500 originally but am concerned about the new wood not absorbing the stain and having mismatched colors. Should I go with a full body solid stain to be safe? If so, what should I use?

    Samples are on this link:

    Either one of those stains would work well for you. I would suggest the samples and picking the color you like the best.

    I live in southwest Florida. We have built one large deck from PT and are planning to start a second even larger one next weekend. I know I need to let the decks dry for a couple months before I stain them so I am researching stains/sealers. Due to our very harsh sun, humidity and rain, I have become convinced that the big box store brands are probably not my best choice. I am undecided between TWP 1500 or the Armstrong-Clarke. I prefer the TWP colors but I like that the Armstrong Clarke can be applied in the full sun and heat. I don't see the application instructions here for the products so any advice would be appreciated. Also is it possible to get samples? I am going to wind up with over 1200 sq ft of decking and pergola so I would like to be able to see what the actual color is going to look like before ordering that much stain.

    Thank you,

    Lisa Brower

    I would like to order TWP 1500. You have responded previously to others to say that it can't be shipped to Canada. It says in this press release that TWP is available online to ship to Canada through Sealer Store:

    No the TWP 1530 is tinted, not clear. If it does not have a tint then it will not prevent UV graying. Only the 1500 for NJ.
