A review of Defy Marine Stain showed it to be ideal for docks, piers, fencing, walk bridges, pontoon floors, pylons or any exterior wood surface near fresh or salt water. Moisture can wreak havoc on wood. Protecting it with a weatherproof stain like Defy Marine Stain is vital. The technology used in Defy Marine Stain is a state of the art blend of nanoparticles. These act like a sunscreen when mixed with synthetic resins and provide optimal sun fading protection and a natural resistance to mold and mildew.
The Defy Marine Stain review also revealed it to be a water-based formula with oil-based like abilities to penetrate deep into the wood pores for maximum protection. Except with oil-based stains clean up is a mess and are not recommend using around water. Defy Marine Stain cleans up easily with water and is suited for marina use and will not harm aquatic life or vegetation. Its low-VOC formula is extremely compliant and environmentally friendly.
With a rapid dry time, Defy Marine Stain provides immediate protection against moisture and harmful sun rays that most docks are prone to. The beautiful long lasting finish will provide several seasons worth of protection and is easy to maintain. For the best results using Defy Marine Stain, all wood surfaces should be cleaned and prepped prior to staining. Do not apply Defy Marine over intact paint or old stains. These should be removed prior to application by using a wood stain stripper followed by a wood brightener.
Apply Defy Marine using a brush, roller, pad, or sprayer. Two “wet on wet” coats are recommended except for on composite lumber or exotic hardwoods, then one coat is recommended. Also allow new pressure treated wood to season for 6-12 months and new composite or hardwood for at least 12 months minimum. The immediate “milky” appearance of Defy Marine Stain will dry to a beautiful semi-transparent finish. Defy Marine Stain is the best way to increase the longevity of wood surfaces in a moist environment like in or near any body of water such as ponds, lakes, or even salt water.
