DEFY-ColorTipsDEFAULTNano-Technology Improves Stain Performance 200-600%

SaverSystems has joint ventured with several companies to develop a new long lasting stain technology.  Our research efforts over the last year and a half have lead Project_buttonto a new development in the performance of exterior, semi-transparent wood finishes to protect your deck.

A newly developed nano-technology used in combination with our existing technology has been found to significantly increase the durability and weather resistance of our synthetic resin based deck stains. This new light stabilizing nano-technology actually works by blocking and absorbing the harmful UV rays from the sun that damage your wood.

Not only does this new technology help prevent wood from graying it also helps prevent water intrusion while resisting  fungal growth. The independent test results are in, and below are photo’s of the actual test boards which show how the new DEFY Extreme new technology stacks up against the best selling national brands.

alt

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 interior or exterior smooth hardwood 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

I have a new Douglas fir deck,can I finish it with defy cedar stain..

You will need to wait about 3 months to weather. Prep first with the Defy Wood Clean and then the Defy Wood Brightener.

You would need to remove the previous coating that was applied first.

4 years ago I stained my log house using Cabot Heartwood toner. It worked OK and still looks presentable. I plan on using a deck cleaner to kill some black mildew that has formed, and pressure wash it clean. The wood was treated with a borate solution, so is impervious to wood eating insects. If I want to use the Devy Extreme Redwood stain, is it necessary to completely strip off the old toner? That's a ton of work I'd prefer to avoid if necessary. Also, what is the best way to apply the stain? Thanks.

Yes you will need to remove the Cabot it use a different stain like the Defy. Apply the stain with a stain sprayer and a stain pad applicator.

i have 2 questions also: I just completed my 1st coat of Defy Extreme Semi-transparent Stain and ran out of stain. It is definitly going to need a 2nd coat. What do I need to do to prepare for adding he 2nd coat after the 1st coat has already cured?
Question 2 - How to remove drip stains from the concrete pad that the aforementioned deck is sitting on?

You should not apply a second now. Wait until Fall, lightly clean and apply the second coat. Removing the stain out of concrete is not easy to do. Try a graffiti remover from your local store and a pressure washer.

How many coats should I put on this year? My next question is how long until it has cured? There is rain in the forecast within the next few days and I want to make sure I give it enough time to dry.

Just one coat this year since you have a base coat already. It should cure in 24 hours.

We have our deck and fence stained with Biowash Natural Deck Oil in the Cedartone colour. We now need to restain and the Defy product has apparently replaced the Biowash. Could you answer the following questions?

- what preparation do I need to do prior to staining?
- what is the shelf life for the product? I don't believe you have Canadian distribution so I was going to ship to a U.S. location and I was considering ordering four gallons so I would have enough to restain in a couple of years.

Thank you for your help.

No you would need to strip off the Biowash first before using the Extreme. use the Defy Wood Brightener as well. Unopened containers will last many a couple of years.

Try a little be of soapy water to remove dirt and lightly agitate and rinse. Hard to spot touch up scratches and have it dry even.

New Cedar Fence
Building new fence with horizontal frence board on both side of the post so there is hidden side of wood.

Do I need to clean and brighten before stain? Staining board individually will take time but doable. However cleaning and brightening individual board seems impossible. Any suggestion?

2nd coat issue
Just applied 2 coats to the rails and upper portion, but only got 2 coats on part of the walking surface of the deck - some parts only got one. On top of that, I got some spotting in one area that I thought was covered - but wasn't. So the upper parts of the deck look fantastic, and the walking surface only so-so

I'm sure I need to let what I've done sit and weather - how best to correct the part 1 coat and the drip spots? Should I use 2 coats in the spring on the whole walking surface? Thanks.

RE: INTERACTION W/MILDEW INHIBITOR TREATMENTS?
The Extreme contains zinc oxide. This can help eliminate mold spores. I would think you would be okay.
Quote
RE: INTERACTION W/MILDEW INHIBITOR TREATMENTS?
I appreciate the feedback. Let me simplify my question...

For a moldy old composite, washed with bleach and rinsed, that looks pretty good at first blush, would you recommend applying Defy Extreme Tint? Or deep seated mildew spores that are caught underneath the sealer will create problems?

Thanks!
Quote
re: Interaction w/mildew inhibitor treatments?
Unfortunately we do not have any history with the "Wet and Forget" product. We do not know if there will be any compatibility issues when using the Defy Staining products on top of it. We cannot advise the use of our products and be confident of no potential issues.
Quote
Interaction w/mildew inhibitor treatments?
Hi,

Sorry for the extended question but I think it is useful to give you some background...

My Trex composite is 10 years old in San Diego coastal area. Had mildew on it and looked bad. Sprayed with bleach solution, power washed, then used Wet & Forget to inhibit mold & mildew.

Instructions for Wet & Forget say it can take a longer time to work (2+ months) and needs occasion rain and wind to work. It is meant to clean the composite of mold and mildew without scrubbing and inhibit future growth. My guess is the occasional watering stimulates spores to "sprout" and the active ingredient then kills it.

I am using Wet & Forget because even though the deck looks clean (albeit faded drab grey) after the bleach wash, I read that bleach does not kill deep seated spores so mildew will come back with a vengeance after bleach and water washes. So figure I need to use something like Wet & Forget to keep the mildew at bay and make sure the spores are gone as BEFORE I seal/stain with Defy Extreme.

Is my logic correct?

OR... can I apply Defy Extreme right now, after the bleach cleaning and one application of Wet & Forget? Do I need to wash off the Wet & Forget stuff or can I apply Defy on top of it? Afterwards, shall I still use Wet & Forget on top of Defy to keep mildew at bay? (would it work, given than Defy Extreme is water repellent? or water vapors will help to have Wet & Forget still work?)
