  • Waterborne Semi-Transparent Stain: a penetrating oil-based formula that protects the beauty of the wood with a rich semi-transparent stain that allows wood grain texture to show through. Repels water to prevent moisture and contains a scuff resistant formula with UV protection that resists fading.
  • Oil-Based Semi-Transparent Stain: provides rich transparent appearance that highlights wood grain. Three-oil formula contains deep penetrating tung oil for lasting protection.
  • Waterborne Semi-Solid Color Stain: provides rich pigmented appearance, allows some natural wood grain to show through. Available with IR Reflective Technology in three colors.
  • Waterborne Solid Color Stain: Provides durable, opaque protection for many exterior horizontal wood surfaces.
