TWP 1500 Series Wood Stain and Preservative


Quality Oil-Based Stain Preservative

Since 1985 TWP products have been made in the USA at the company’s Pacific, Missouri plant. When using TWP 1500 Series on new wood it is usually best to allow 4 to 12 months of natural weathering. After the aging period clean the wood substrate with a quality solution of oxygen bleach such as DEFY Wood Cleaner or similar before commencing with application. This applies to older previously treated or stained surfaces as well. Tough the latter may first require a wood stain stripper. DEFY Stain Stripper is one recommendation. The trick is in remember that TWP is a penetrating type system and is not designed to build a film. So only apply to properly prepared clean, dry and absorbent bare wood.


Why EPA Registration

All products making claims to destroy or suppress the growth of microorganisms such as mold and/or mildew on inanimate objects and surfaces must submit chemical makeup, acceptable data on product performance (effectiveness), toxicological effects, ecological effects and ecological fate to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) for approval of such claims. All US pesticide products, including wood preservatives, are regulated by EPA and may not be sold with such claims until EPA has approved the formulations and granted an EPA Registration number which must then appear on the product label.
