Surface Preparation: Optimal performance is achieved when the product is applied to a clean, dry, and absorbent wood substrate. This product must be able to penetrate. The moisture content of the wood should not exceed 15% to allow for proper penetration.

  • New Wood: Smooth planed wood siding, trim, or decking must be sanded thoroughly or treated with Woodluxe® Wood Brightener and Neutralizer (017) to break the “mill glaze” and allow proper penetration. After prep is complete, allow the wood to dry then test for penetration by applying a few drops of water to the substrate. If the water does not quickly penetrate, repeat prep, or consult your Benjamin Moore® retailer.
  • Weathered Wood: Prior to staining, gray and weathered wood must be treated with Woodluxe® Wood Restorer (016), following label directions, until a sound surface is obtained (loose or damaged wood fibers removed).
  • Un-weathered areas such as eaves, ceilings, overhangs, or protected areas must be washed with Woodluxe® All-In-One Wood Cleaner (018) and rinsed with a strong stream from a garden hose to remove surface salts that can interfere with proper adhesion.
  • Previously Stained Surfaces: This product can be applied to surfaces previously stained with a transparent stain that is weathered but is not flaking or peeling and will allow new stain to penetrate. For optimal results, remove previous coatings. Existing paint, stain or sealer can be removed by hand or mechanical sanding, with an On Floor machine or using Woodluxe® Wood Stain Remover (015). Remove contaminants or chalky residue from weathered stained surfaces by washing with Woodluxe® All-In-One Wood Cleaner (018) and allow to dry thoroughly. If the existing stain is flaking or peeling it should be removed prior to staining. Existing paint, stain or sealer can be removed by sanding with an On Floor machine or using Woodluxe® Wood Stain Remover (015). Stains from mildew must be removed by cleaning with Woodluxe® All-In-One Wood Cleaner (018) prior to coating the surface.

Application: Prior to staining, ensure you have enough product to complete an entire section. In can color may differ from the final dried finish, therefore it is recommended to test a small area for color acceptance. When using multiple containers, intermix stain to ensure color uniformity. Stir thoroughly before and occasionally during use. This stain can be applied by brush, roller, pad applicator, or by using a pump sprayer. For roller, pad, or spray application, follow with back brushing for greater penetration. Apply one uniform coat of stain at the recommended coverage rates listed. Applying multiple coats or applying the finish too heavily stain can potentially cause premature failure, affect the opacity of the final finish and obscure more of the natural color of the wood. When used as a deck stain, allow to dry for 48 hours before putting furniture back and returning to service. Temperature and humidity may affect drying time. In can color may differ from the final dried finish. Apply evenly, allowing the stain to penetrate into the wood. Brush from dry into wet areas, stopping at natural breaks, i.e., stairs or edges. To minimize lapping, always maintain a wet edge. On siding or decking, apply the stain on a section of 2 or 3 boards completely across the length of the boards. Continue by coating the next section of boards in the same manner until the area is completed. Vertical siding is coated using the same principle from top to bottom. Never stop staining in the middle of the board; continue until a natural break is reached. Avoid staining in direct sunlight as this will prevent the product from penetrating properly and causing lap marks. Apply when air and surface temperatures are between 40 °F and 90 °F.
