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 to a new development in the performance of exterior, semi-transparent wood finishes to protect your deck.

Project_buttonA 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.

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

    Is the temperature range of 45 degrees just for the application or does need it to stay over that during the night?

    Thanks

    How long can you wait between cleaning and staining? And how long should you allow deck to dry after cleaning or rain before applying stain?

    Thank you,
    Dan

    We are going to stain a new fir deck. Does Defy Extreme work well on fir? Would you recommend two coats? We are considering the grey stain.

    We want to preserve a 20 year old deck that has been periodically stained with redwood color. I would like to use your butternut, will it cover it? We have pressured washed it, and will use your cleaner to clean it, will sand rough spots. Do I need to use the brightener and the stripper? Before the Butternut, and would satin or semi transparent be best if I want to see some of the wood grain, but cover old flaws like splinters? I want to save money if I don't need all four products, but don't want to have to re do it. Lynn

      You cannot apply the Defy Stains over a stain of a different brand. The old coatings have to come off first. As to how to remove, that depends on the brand and type of stain? Pictures would help as well.

    How long does a sealed (but used, I have one gallon left out of 5) container of extreme exterior cedar tone defy stain stay good for? Mine is about 3 years old. I’m going to order another 5 gallon container of the same item, making sure I can use them together...

    I used your Defy Extreme stain on a new KDAT deck that aged a year. I used your cleaner and brightened before application and all went well. It’s been over a year and I want to re-apply. Should I used the brighter again and should I use two coats of stain?

    I have a log home and am interested in possibly using your product. I last stained the home in 2012-13 with TWP 1500 oil based stain. Would I be able to use your product over this stain and would I have to clean it with your brightener before using your product?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly.
      thesealerstore · 07/10/2020
      You will have to strip and brighten the wood when switching any brand of stain like the Defy. Use the Defy Stain Stripper and Defy Wood Brightener.

    I'm applying over existing Defy stain that is about 4 years weathered. Will I need 2 coats? I've never used 2 coats before and have gotten 4-5 years before needing to restain. Also, is the new extreme product epoxy?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly.
      thesealerstore · 06/18/2020
      Just one coat. The Extreme is an improved version of the older Defy Expoxy stain.

      New KDAT wood needs to season for 1-2 months and then prepped with the Defy cleaner and the Defy wood brightener. Use the Defy Extreme Stain.

    When I last stained my wood deck I had a couple of gallons of Extreme semi transparent left over. How long is it good for? It's been at least a couple of years. Is it still good?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly.

      Hard to say. Depends if they were opened and how they were stored. If mixes fluidly then probably okay.

    I built a large wood deck out of Garapa 10 years ago and have used other stain products. We tried the Defy extreme light walnut hardwood stain and love the results, however we noticed that after a good downpour the other day that the water was only beading up in certain places. Should it be beading up everywhere? We stripped it and brightened it prior to staining. I wish I took a few before photos to show the change. Stafford Springs CT

      No. It is a breathable stain that does not bead water but sheds water. Looks great!

    I'm installing t-111 siding with 1x3 pine battens over the grooves for a natural wood "board-n-batten" look. I want to stain/seal with Extreme. Should I stain the T-111 and the battens separately prior to installing? ... or stain all together after the battens are installed? ... In other words, how best can I get the stain/seal behind the battens? If stained after full install, will "unstained" shadows appear as the structure ages?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly.
      thesealerstore · 05/24/2019
      No. Stain after install, just the exposed wood. No need stain behind.

    Dan · 05/23/2019
    I'm building a 24 x 32 detached garage using T-111 siding. Wanting to do all the trim (corners, window casing, etc.) in white. Can I stain everything (including the trim) with Extreme and then paint over the trim with white exterior latex paint? ... or, do I need to leave off the trim, stain the siding by itself, the put on the painted trim after the siding staining is done?

    I applied Defy on a marine deck that is over a moving fresh water river approx. 3 years ago. the deck gets full sun all day. I would like to apply another coat to my deck this year. Can I apply the extreme over the top of the first coat?

    I have a 22 year old 16 X 14 deck with 2) 4-step stairs . I need to redo all railings / balusters / outside frame that are all pressure treated . ( decking & rail topping is TREX ) Intend to sand off old coatings to wood . Want to use DEFY Extreme Stain - Butternut color . Is there anything else I need to make it last the longest time possible ?

      Prep with the Defy Wood cleaner after the sanding. Do not sand with grit finer than 80.

    We have a log home in South Dakota that needs to be re-stained - we have used Defy original, color: Teton Bronze. Can I switch to your Defy Extreme? If so, what color would closely match the Teton Bronze in the Extreme Line?
    Thanks
    • We will reply to your comment shortly.
      thesealerstore · 08/03/2018
      You can switch but there is not a color that will match exact. Closest would be the Light Walnut.

        Patty · 08/03/2018
        What would be the advantage to switch to the Defy Extreme over the original Defy? And would I need to do any special prep to make the switch?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly.
          thesealerstore · 08/03/2018
          Better UV protection from fading with the Extreme. Make sure and prep with the Defy Wood Cleaner first.

    When staining a new western red cedar fence, do you recommend spraying? The wood has a fair amount of roughness to it.

      You can spray this but make sure to back wipe/brush and drips so it dries evenly.

    LMello · 06/27/2018
    I just had a western red cedar fence installed and would like to stain it. Fencing is rougher than decking, so I'm not sure your advice for decking applies. Do I have to prep the wood before staining? How long do I have to wait before staining? Also, the rot boards are pressure treated pine. Can I stain them with the same stain I will use on the cedar?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly.
      thesealerstore · 06/27/2018
      If the wood is rough sawn you can stain right away as long as the wood is dry and clean. No prep should be needed if clean. You can use the same stain for all.

    Clayton · 05/01/2018
    Does your Extreme Wood Stain product actually penetrate into the wood, or does it act as a film on top of the wood surface. I've tried several products which claim to penetrate, but actually only form a film on the surface, which is prone to extensive peeling after only a few months...
    • We will reply to your comment shortly.
      thesealerstore · 05/01/2018
      The Defy Extreme is a penetrating stain but you do have to prep correctly and not over applicate.

    Gary · 10/05/2017
    I have a 2 year old barn/shed that I had built that has T-111 siding. The person who built it for me used Olympic Maximum Semi-Transparent water based stain on the siding. The stain is starting to look like it could use another coat in the near future due to some fading, but it is not in bad shape or mildewed or the like. I am considering using your stain based on the review given at deckstainhelp.com. If I switch to your product which is also water based, do I need to use your wood stain stripper, or would the wood deck cleaner & brightener be sufficient?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly.
      thesealerstore · 10/06/2017
      Hi Gary, you will need to remove the Olympic fully first with the stripper and even possibly some sanding. Use the Defy Wood Brightener after.

    Gregg Reilly:
    I have a eastern cedar deck, treated with cedarcide penetrating wood protectant 9 years ago after complete sanding and re-screwing deck. Don't know if any old stain was left after sanding, have you had experience with soy gel stripper? Will clean and brighten deck, Defy products, prior to staining. Will adding a clear Defy on top of colored give the look of more depth of color, similar to automotive paint with multiple clear coats? Which Defy stain would you recommend? Is coverage of a second coat equal to the first coat?

    You cannot add the Clear on top of the colored Extreme stain not would it add a more in-depth look. Use the Defy Extreme. The second coat is applied wet on wet and will spread twice as far as the first:
