Amteco TWP Stain Application Tips

Surface Preparation


  • New Wood:
    It is necessary to allow new wood to age for up to six months before staining. Pressure treated wood should be allowed 12 months natural weathering before staining.
  • Untreated Old Wood:
    Can be revived to look new. Remove mildew and growth with a mild bleach and water solution followed by a 1500-2500 p.s.i. output power washer.
  • Previously Stained Wood:
    May require a chemical stripping or brightening agent combined with power washing to remove all of the old coating. When working with a power washer use caution to avoid excess fraying of the wood surface. Allow 36 to 48 hours of dry time before TWP® application.
