Nano-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 one year old deck with 1 coat of penofin. We'd like to resand the serfice and apply Defy. Would that work.

You do need to remove the Penofin first. Best is to strip and brighten the wood for prep. Sanding will work as well, just do not sand more then 60-80 grit of paper.

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.

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.

New Cedar Fence
Building new fence with horizontal frence board on both side of the post so there is hidden side of wood. Wanted to stain with Extreme on all surface of board for protection which mean staining before installation. Question is do I need to wait before staining new cedar (non-treated)? 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? What would be the effect if I stain the new wood without doing the prep?

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?

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?

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?)

1. I would say it is a 8 as far as applying. Really depends on the day and how fast you are moving.
2. You can clean and reapply without stripping.

Hi,

We live in New Hampshire and have a covered farmers porch. The wood floors are Fir. We stripped the paint to the bare wood. The porch receives minimal sunshine and no rain except for outer edges. We do get some snow in winter. I like the natural look of the wood and was thinking of using the clear stain finish. How will this hold up over time on a surface like fir that is protected from most elements?

Thanks. Dave

Is the Extreme Nano product considered a penetrating stain like your traditional epoxy fortified deck stain says it is? If the Extreme is used on a deck in two years when its time to clean again can you simply add a top coat and if so will it penetrate and absorb into the wood like a traditional oil based stain or will I have to strip it off every two years before applying a top coat? The reason I ask is that the Extreme is advertised as a stain and "Sealer" which to me implies that it may sit on top of the wood versus penetrating it which to me would seem that it could prevent future coats from being able to penetrate it. If and when stripping is required how difficult will it be to remove it as compared to traditional oil based stains or for that matter your traditional "Epoxy Fortified Product" that does not have the nano technology? Just spent four weeks stripping off 9 layers of acrylic deck stain and I never want to go through the cost of the special chemicals required to cut it nor the time and aggravation every again. In other words, when the product starts to fail is it going to create a lot more cost and effort to maintain it?

1. Behr is not easy to remove since it does apply like a paint. I would get a high quality wood stripper then if needed sand the rest of.
2. For cedar wood I would suggest the Defy Hardwood/Cedar stains as it penetrates better.
3. Typically no you do not need to strip when recoating.

Hi,
I have a ceder deck in Michigan that we applied a water base Behr stain to and it all flaked off in less than a year, we followed all the directions and talked to Behr numerous times to make sure we did it right. It was a semi transparent stain but went on like paint and did not absorb in to the wood. I know I need to strip it but would like to know :
1. What is the best way to remove it ?
2. If the Defy Extreme will do the same ?
3. Do you have to strip it every year or two to recoat it ?
4. How long will the product last before it needs to be redone ?
5. And any other advice you can give I do not want to go through this again.
Thank you,
Len

I would do a test spot to see if the second coat absorbs and dries properly into the wood. You do not want the second coat to film on top and become shiny.

Just applied Extreme clear to brand new cyress used in cladding pt deck posts. I applied 1st coat and forget. It wasnt until next day I realized I did not return within the 20 minute window to apply 2nd coat. How and when would it be safe to apply a 2nd coat? Do I need to strip it and then apply two coats. I hope not.

Thanks

Best to strip off the Cabot with the Defy Stain Stripper and Defy Wood Brightener:

For the stain I would suggest the Defy Extreme:

It is not prone to turning black like other known wood stains.

Thanks

Hi We have a summer home in NH with 2 year old pressure treated wood decks. We have been using Jomax and cabets Australian sealer on them every year but they get blace every winter and we have to do them over every spring. We can not get to the deck to clean off the leaves so they cover the decks along with snow all winter. Do you have anything that will last for 3-5 years. We like the natural wood to show. W see you have several cleaners, strippers, brightners, epoxys and ect. What would you recamend we do with the decks so they stay narural for a while. We do not mind the work or $.
Thanks Adrian

Nano-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.
