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

    I have a new and newly-sanded with 80 grit redwood deck. What do you recommend for pre-treatment prior to applying Defy Extreme Wood Stain?

      The Defy Wood Cleaner followed by the Defy Brightener.

    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?

      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.

    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:

    How do you calculate the amount of product needed to cover a fence as opposed to a deck?

    Lenght x Width x 2 (both sides) = total sq. footage. Fugure about 100 sq. feet per gallon for the 2 coats applied wet on wet. For example if the total sq footage is 1000, you would need about two of the 5-gallon pails for the two coats.

    Hello, building a brand new patio cover. Wood is clean, can I apply without the cleaner or brightener? Going to stain prior to assembly. Can I touch up after we build for the scratches and damage we do? Can we restrain years later with same material without stripping?

    Hello, you cannot prestain. See this about new wood, weathering, and proper prep:

    We used Wolman RainCoat in water-based CapeCod Gray 3 years ago. Will the Defy Extreme in Driftwood Gray color and seal my deck as the Wolman RainCoat did or even better?

    The Extreme is a better overall product. To use it, you will need to make sure the Wolman has been removed first.

    What is the best of these to use on new cedar siding on a home?

    This is all pretty confusing. Seems all the products can do the job

    Mike Beatty

    The Extreme Stain is our most advanced stain that we offer. On a vertical cedar siding, it will provide the longest life in terms of UV fading and overall color retention. It also has excellent mold and mildew resistance.

    Can I mix the original with the Extreme ?

    Yes you can as long as the old stain is still good. Make sure there is not any "chunks" or "skinning".

    I recently bought a log home in Montana that needs to be re-stained, last owner left a partial bucket of 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

    There is not a match for the Teton Bronze. Closest would be Butternut. It would be best to strip off the Defy Original if you want to switch to the Extreme.

    Good Day, Our 3 year old deck is constructed of Sienna board treated wood. Last year the deck was cleaned with a deck cleaner, power washed, followed by treatment with 2 coats of Olympic WaterGuard. Although there is slight graying in high sun areas the remainder of the deck remains golden in colour. My spouse prefers the golden colour of the Sienna board and was less than thrilled after the deck cleaner had been applied as it had removed the colour from the wood. In order to retain the sienna colour do you think that I can simply pressure wash the entire surface followed by stain application?

    Hello, you must remove the Olympic fully first. The Defy Stain Stripper and pressure washing to remove. Use the Defy Wood Brightener after. This needs to be done so the Defy will work properly.

    In Connecticut I stripped, cleaned and applied two coats of DEFY Extreme Wood Stain Butternut in May 2015 over a weathered Pine Deck. Can I apply a third coat for added protection in September over the two coats? Is there any benefit to doing that? Would those coats need to be stripped?

    We would not suggest this now. Better to apply a light coat 12-24 months after the first coats are applied.
