Maxum 8500 100% Acrylic Solid Color Deck Stain is a specially formulated stain for use on new or previously coated exterior wood decks. Its new generation acrylic formula provides unequaled ruggedness and durability. Its finish is hard enough to withstand the abuse of heavy foot traffic, yet is flexible enough to weather temperature extremes and resists cracking and peeling. The solid opaque color masks the grain allowing the texture of the wood to show and provides a water resistant coating for new or previously coated exterior decks. It provides superior water repellency and has excellent color retention. It provides excellent protection against the damaging effects of ultra-violet rays from the sun. It can withstand numerous cleanings with non-abrasive household cleaner and detergents.

Surface Preparation: All surface areas to be painted should be clean, dry, sound and free of all dirt, grease, oils, waxes, loose wood fibers, mill glaze, mildew and any other surface contaminants that may cause paint failure. Grease residue should be removed with an Oil and Grease Emulsifier. Surface wax should be removed with a commercial wax stripper, or by solvent cleaning. Remove all loose wood fibers, chipping, cracking or peeling paint from previously painted surfaces by hand scraping, sanding, wire brushing and/or by use of power tool cleaning methods. Existing mill glaze should be treated with a mill glaze remover or sanded sufficiently to open wood grain. Repair/replace any seriously damaged and/or delaminated surface areas. Lightly feather-sand smooth all rough paint edges to adjacent surface area. All glossy surface areas should be lightly sanded to effectively dull the existing sheen and create a more suitable surface for painting. Previously painted surfaces that are in serious delamination should be completely removed and treated as a new wood surface.
Mildew: Mildew is a natural occurrence over which we have no control. Surface areas that are affected by mildew should be thoroughly cleaned with a soft-medium bristle scrub brush and 1 cup of Tri-Sodium Phosphate – (TSP), or non- ammoniated detergent cleaner mixed with a solution of 1 part household bleach and 3 parts of warm water, per gallon solution. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for safe handling and use of cleaning solution. Allow the solution to stand on the affected surface areas for approximately 10 to 20 minutes, then rinse with clean water and allow 24 to 48 hours to dry.
- Priming: Prime all bare and new wood surfaces with Maxum Oil Primer. Apply in accordance with label specifications.
- Finishing: 1 or 2 coats of Maxum® Solid Color Deck Stain (8500)
Application: Maxum Solid Color Deck Stain applies easily with a quality brush, roller or airless spray method. Stir product thoroughly before and during application. For best results, apply two finish coats. When applying by brush or roller, apply stain to two or three boards at a time and apply a smooth and generous coat with the wood grain, continuing the entire length of the boards or until you reach a natural break in the surface. Avoid any excessive re-spreading or reworking. Always maintain a wet edge during application by brushing/rolling into previously applied coating area. If applying by airless spray, use a unit with a minimum of 2000 psi of pressure with a .017 - .019 fluid spray tip. During spray application, back-roll/brush the surface area to ensure proper adhesion and even application. If applying a two coat finish system, allow the first coat to dry for 4 – 6 hours, or allow to dry overnight. Apply when surface and air ambient temperatures are above 50°F and below 90°F. Avoid paint application outside when weather conditions are threatening, and late in the afternoon when there is a chance of moisture condensing on wet paint.
Thinning Is Not Necessary! If thinning is desired, you may add clean water up to 1/2 pint per gallon.
