Questions about transparency and durability

There is some color to the Natural Transparent finish, so why is it called transparent? The color is lovely, but I'm curious. Also, hope it holds up. Wish I had read some of the reviews of this product before totally relying on Home Depot's recommendation to buy it. As I search the net, the reviews are really mixed, more negative than I had hoped. Please tell me the stain won't start coming off in a year. The can says four years! Thank you.

It is what I would call semi-transparent, some color with a clear coating. It is not very durable, so if it will be getting quite a bit of wear I would try something different. I have had good success with Olympic.

After applying Natural-500, How long must it sit to prevent damage from rain?

Asked by: Anonymous
The finish must be dry in order to act properly to seal out rain droplets, and the finish must have been applied thoroughly to all surfaces of the wood to act as a uniform skin over the wood surface. Holidays in the surface application wherein some areas were not coated thoroughly will soak up rain water as quickly as any untreated wood. Natural rain events will eventually have a weathering effect on the wood because wood is a dynamic material which expands and contracts naturally with its own moisture content which can, over time, cause miniature fissures in the grain surface of lumber which then have no blockage to the passage of water on the surface. Read recoat instructions, and probable life of applied finish offered by the manufacturer. Locale and weather conditions vary across the country for probable weather exposure water levels and conditions.

We used natural NO.500 and the store doesn't have this color. They stated Clear 500N is the same. They look different.

Asked by: Vic
I was mid-way through a project with Natural No. 500. Home Depot is now out of it. I bought some of the Clear 500-N and applied it right next to the old 500. The Clear 500-N is not even close to the same color. Home Depot does NOT know how to tint 500-N to make it like the old 500. I'm rather upset with how they pulled such a seemingly standard color. The 500-N Clear looks honey colored in the can, but upon application on pressure treated lumber, the green of the lumber shows right through. The 500 Natural covered the green-ness of the pressure treated lumber.

Deck stains are never perfect - but I used this based on CR testing and am a bit disappointed. The redwood color is more like old pepto- bismol and it seems to look & feel rather plastic. Used it on my new redwood slat fence. Did some sanding but didn't see the need to clean since it was newly installed one month prior. Application looked same on sanded & non-sanded areas. Also took a few weeks to dry without tackiness. ... we'll see how it goes. Wish they would offer a clear product that you can add small amounts of toner to get a more reasonable color ... not the full pigmented stain which is frankly always ugly from most manufacturers....!

When applied to a wood surface, it will not dry clear (as stated) but in fact, leaves a muddy yellowish tint that is very undesirable, especially on lighter surfaces. I built and custom stained $400 worth of cedar planters over a period of 3 weeks and managed to ruined all of them in one day with this product.

I had my deck power washed before and applied it 2 weeks later. If anyone is wondering. I put it on in 87 degree temps and it rained 5 hours later and it didn't ruin it. The water started beading when it rained. It's easy to apply and the color is great. I would use this again. I took me and my mom about 7 hours total. We had to stop on the first day because we ran out of this. I'm so glad I didn't pay someone $2000 to do this for me. It looks good for an amateur. There's a couple of spots that are bad, because the coat overlapped. But all in all I'm happy. Just do one coat. That's all you need.

Do not use this product over an existing colored stain. It has a brown tint already in it. Per Behr customer support, "Although our no. 500 Transparent Wood Finish is labeled clear, there is a little pigment in it which helps with UV protection". That may be fine if you are using it on natural, unstained surfaces, but it's a misrepresentation of the actual color. If you want actual clear, use a product like Thompson's Water Seal.

Each year I used a different waterproofing product to coat the logs on the outside of my home. I went to Home Depot at the recommendation of a Behr rep I tried the waterproofing wood finish and clear. Two coats went on very easy and the poles went from bleached out to a beautiful honey color. Thank you!

This is the third project I've done and the color hasn't even come close to what it was supposed to be. Luckily Home Depot made good on the horrible product because behr wouldn't do anything for me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice results and easy to work with I have been working on our fence, completely refinishing what we have built. Started by sanding and then hand painted this product over more than 500 linear feet of at least 6foot fencing. This product absorbed very quickly into the wood, and in most cases I was in at least 2 coats and in most places I am going with 3 because I like the finish, and I am hoping to not have to do this again for a very long time. The result is very beautiful and puts a finishing detail into our yard. It makes it feel much more finished, tropical and lush with our landscaping.
