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

    Replaced the old deck with new pressured treated pine bought from Lowes in late July. Live in Atlanta George. When should I stain my deck? It has been 2.5 months after the new board was installed.

    Wait another 2 months & you should be fine..just make sure to apply when 45-95 degrees

    I have a PT pine wood deck that was built 1 year ago and I'm ready to stain it with Defy Extreme. There are a lot of pencil lines on the wood and some stencils from the mill. I was hoping that the pencil lines would fade away but they haven't, so I need to sand them. What are your recommendations on sanding? should I use brightener after sanding and before staining?

    You should use both the Defy Cleaner and Defy Wood brightener for prep and after any light sanding.

    I stained my decks this weekend with your Extreme in the redwood color, it turned out looking good. I do have to say the five gallon bucket did not have a small opening on top to help pour it, whats with that? And it says cleans with soap and water? Yea right! Not so much. But I will buy it again if it holds up like you say it does. Plus the easy of reapplication it shows in your video. I would not change anything about the stain to make it more cleanable, just change the 5 gal bucket lid.

    After research and consideration, I decided to go with Defy Extreme to stain my 2 year old deck. It was stained with another product 2 yrs ago. I just received my 5 gal. of Defy Extreme. I have just read these questions and responses, and I now see you do not recommended using Defy stain over previous stains. I wish I had understood this earlier. It should be included in the information about the product.

    You cannot apply Defy or any other brand of penetrating stain on top of a different stain and expect that the new stain will properly adhere and penetrate into the wood. The info is included on our website articles, in the product data sheets on the site, and on the container.

    Hi - is it possible to blend two colors together? I have the light walnut and redwood samples and testing half n half looks good but wanted to make sure defy doesn't have any objections.

    Absolutely you can blend colors for a custom color.

    Sally, cedartone is more orange while light walnut is more reddish brown. Redwood is red. There are samples you can order from the site. Extreme would be better.

    Sally DAlessandro · 03/29/2014
    Which as more red in it? The cedar tone or light walnut?
    Also, for beach front decks, Is the Extreme better to the Defy Marine Seal?

    I am trying to decide how much stain to buy. I am refinishing my deck, and will probably need 3-4 gallons for two wet on wet coats. I am thinking of buying a 5 gallon container, thinking I would just keep to extra for when I need to recoating it. My question is, how long will the unused stain remain good?

    Bleach is actually bad for wood. I would at least use the Defy Brightener to reset the pH balance of the wood after using the bleach.

    We have a one year old deck that gets a lot of shade. By this summer it was covered with mildew. We bleached and pressure washed it. Would there be any purpose to the cleaner and brightener from Defy? I am not sure what they really do.

    Prep with a wood brightener and heavily rinse the wood when done.

    I am going to plane the boards of my Redwood deck due to hail damage. With new wood surface after I plane the wood, how should I prep the wood. I just purchased the Chrystal Clear Extreme Defy.

    2-3 months for the waiting. Prep after the waiting with the Defy Wood Cleaner and Wood Brightener. You can use the pressure washer as a rinsing tool when prepping. You would want the Defy stain for Hardwoods. Natural Pine is the lightest tint. Similar to a clean wet look.

    I'm building a new deck out of redwood in Southern California. It gets full sun from about 8am to 4pm. How long should I wait before staining? Until water doesn't bead and instead is absorbed into the wood? I'd like to seal/stain as soon as possible so what is the minimum amount of time I can wait? Do I need to use a pressure washer on the new wood when I clean/brighten? Which Defy product would you recommend and what color do you recommend for the closest match to the natural redwood color... I'm concerned redwood will be too red but I do not want an orangey color like cedar. Thank you!

    You cannot put the Defy on top of another stain. You should remove first by sanding or stripping. You do need to brighten when done. Maybe the Buternut color in the Extreme.

    I have a PTL deck (in Maryland) that hasn't been stained/sealed for 6 years (since I bought the house). I power washed the deck and also used a wood cleaner on it however, you can still see most of the old stain on the deck. I just recently replaced the top cap and one deck board with new PTL. My questions are:

    1) Do I also need to use a wood brightener before I stain?
    2) What Defy stain would you recommend? I'm looking for a solid semi-dark stain that can go over the lighter current stain.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Yes you would need to remove the old stain first before applying the Defy. if you sand make sure to use a deck cleaner and wood brightener after to help open the wood grain better. Defy typically needs to be redone every 2 years on a horizontal. It can be cleaned and reapplied.

    Hi,
    I live in southern Ontario Canada. My white cedar deck is about 9 years old. The first year we built it I applied a deck stain from Glidden. The next spring all the horizontal surface was pealing. I got discouraged therefore I haven't done anything to it other than power wash it. The horizontal areas still have some original product on it. Do I have to sand this area before applying your product?
    The horizontal area I will sand to smooth it out. How long will Defy Extreme last on the horizontal area and can I simply reapply Defy Extreme when needed without prepping the deck next time?
    Thanks
