Defy Extreme vs Other Water Based Decking Stains
Oil based stains have been around the longest but their formulas have not changed much. Many of them are still not VOC compliant in certain states. The bottom line is they are not eco-friendly even though they do provide a fairly adequate amount of protection. To come up with an eco-friendly water based stain that could compare to an oil based stain, Defy went to the drawing board. What they came out with not only performs well against the oil formulas, but it outperforms 4 of the best selling national brands of water based stains.
To prove why Defy Extreme is better than other water based decking stains you have to look at the latest stain technology. Defy utilizes what they call “nano-technology”. In combination with their existing technology, this newly developed nano-technology has been found to drastically increase the toughness and weather resistance of their synthetic resin based deck stain called Defy Extreme. This technology acts like a sunscreen and reflects the harsh UV rays that are responsible for greying and fading wood decking. Defy Extreme’s technology also helps prevent unwanted water and moisture in addition to resisting fungal growth.
The nano particles and high-grade resins of Defy Extreme provide protection from the sun like no other tinted wood finish ever has. This is a complete breakthrough in the stain industry. This light stabilizing innovation improves stain performance 200-600% by Defy’s calculations. No other water based stain on the market performs this well. Defy Extreme can be used on both interior or exterior smooth hardwood surfaces from wood furniture and siding to decking and other hardwood surfaces. Cleanup is a breeze with soap and water due to the eco-friendly formula.
The Defy Extreme high-grade resins are different than any other Water Based Deck stains. Utilizing a completely different resin type, the Defy Extreme has the penetration ability of an oil based stain. No filming on top of the surface and peeling.
