Defy Extreme Wood Stain has been formulated using state of the art Nano-Technology to create a level of durability that has not been available in a clear wood stain in the past.

The Nano Particles 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 "Crystal" Clear Wood Finish. A clear finish that protects wood from graying.

This is a First in the Industry!

    Hello,

    We are wrapping up construction on a redwood deck in our yard. Our desire is to keep the natural color of the redwood so we are looking at using the DEFY Extreme Clear. The last few months it has been raining fairly regularly so I am wondering how long we should wait to seal it. I was thinking we should wait until June (Northern California) when the weather is more consistently dry and warm. Do you have a recommendation for how long to wait?

    Also, we have used 1x4 attached to posts for guardrails. Should we apply the DEFY Extreme Clear to these boards as well? Both sides & end cuts?

    I imagine the deck will need cleaning before applying the sealer. I was planning to use the DEFY Wood Cleaner. Do we need to do any sort of sanding of the deck surface before using the cleaner or the sealer?

    Lastly, if we decided we wanted the redwood to gray over time is there an alternate product you would recommend?

    Thanks!

    Wating about 3-4 months after install is normal. Prep with both the Cleaner and the wood brightener. The clear will start to gray around 9-12 months so it is normal to prep and reapply annually or if you prefer the gray, just leave as is. Yes, you should apply to the posts.

    What product would you recommend to use on a my rough cut white pine board and batton barn? I do not want to radically change the color and was hoping that a clear wood preservative would be the correct way to go.

    Clear will give you some UV protection but the Defy Extreme in a stain color will give 3 times the UV protection on the barn. Couple of years with the clear on vertical wood. 6 years or so if you choose a color like the Natural Pine.

    You cannot add a tinted color over the clear without removing the clear first. The tinted colors will last 2-3 times longer the the clear when it comes to UV protection from graying.

    Follow up- If I used the cedar tone on the redwood siding, would it last significantly longer? The house is in a wooded area and does not get full sun.

    I have a house in Atlanta, GA with redwood siding. 1/2 built in the 60s and an addition in the 80's. I have cleaned and brightened one wall and want to finish this one before moving around one section at a time in the spring. I'm going to order the Defy extreme clear to start. I want the natural redwood look but the tint looks odd on my sample boards. If we opted for a tint in the spring would I need to strip the clear before prior to coming back to this wall?

    It will most likely go bad within a year or so but if the lid is closed well it might last longer.

    How long can an opened pail of Defy Extreme Clear be kept? Would I be able to use it the following year as I have a cedar deck with a southern exposure that would likely require reapplication every year.

    Clear will not last nearly as long as a tinted stain. this goes for all brands of stains or sealers. For example the Defy Extreme Stain in one of the tints will last 2-3 times longer then the Defy Extreme Clear.

    Hello,

    Please advise as to how you product compares? Also, can it be used on western red cedar siding?
    Thanks!

    You can clean and re coat when needed.

    This is not a hardwood finish though. You would want the Defy Stain for Hardwoods.

    What about touch ups? Do you have to sand and refinish? Or is there an easier method for quick re-touches? please email response, I am looking to convince a client of the need to use a hardwood finish, but I need to know this key info, before I present this to him. Thanks...
