Answer: 
Preserva Wood can be applied as low as 50 degrees F and as high as 80-90 degrees F, depending on the circumstances. On the low end, moisture is probably a bigger concern than temperature. If the wood is dry and readily absorbs the stain, then our oil based penetrating stain and sealer can even be applied as low as 40 degrees F. Wet wood does not absorb the stain properly and can lead to over-application Read More
Preserva Wood can be applied as low as 50 degrees F and as high as 80-90 degrees F, depending on the circumstances. On the low end, moisture is probably a bigger concern than temperature. If the wood is dry and readily absorbs the stain, then our oil based penetrating stain and sealer can even be applied as low as 40 degrees F. Wet wood does not absorb the stain properly and can lead to over-application and poor penetration. Exposure to air is what cures the oils, so the actual daily high temperature is not that important for drying. Allow at least 48 hours. On the high end, the temperature of the wood is what's important! Hot wood will cause the solvent to flash off and the stain will not penetrate into the wood properly. In warm weather, try to stain early, in the cool of the day, so the stain has time to penetrate into the wood. Try to avoid direct sunlight when possible, and remove any excess stain that has not penetrated into the wood within 20 minutes. If you have additional questions, please call us toll free at 800-797-2537 during regular business hours (West Coast) and we will be happy to assist you in person. Read Less

The CLEAR product that you used is formulated to protect your wood from moisture damage, while allowing the wood to age naturally over time. The label on the CLEAR says that it will allow the wood to "gray" naturally. If color retention is your objective, we suggest that you use one of the tinted versions of Preserva Wood.

The CLEAR product that you used is formulated to protect your wood from moisture damage, while allowing the wood to age naturally over time. The label on the CLEAR says that it will allow the wood to "gray" naturally. If color retention is your objective, we suggest that you use one of the tinted versions of Preserva Wood. Our transparent stains are very lightly pigmented, to retain color and enhance the natural beauty of the wood, while providing additional UV protection. You cannot re-apply stain again in 3 months. You should allow the deck to weather for at least 1 year to 18 months and then give it a good cleaning with a detergent based cleaner. At that time, if small droplets of water cast upon a dry deck are absorbed into the wood, then you can apply a very light application of one of our tinted stains for color retention. Read Less

Answer: 
Oil based products are not banned anywhere in the United States, including California. Certain states, including California require "low VOC" stains that are 250 VOC or below (25% solvent or less). Other 250 VOC states are included in LADCO in the upper Midwest and OTC on the upper East Coast. The only area with more stringent requirements is the SCAQMD in Southern California, which requires 100 VOC Read More

Can the surface be covered with latex based stain at a later date

Answer (1)

June 24, 2016
Answer: 
If you apply Preserva Wood and eventually wanted to apply a water based latex product, the Preserva Wood would have to be removed by either stripping or sanding the wood (or both). Water based products will not bond to surfaces that are not properly prepared. A surface previously treated with an oil based product, like Preserva Wood, would not bond properly to a water based latex.

1 gal. Oil-Based Clear Penetrating Stain and Sealer is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Outdoor Protection for Wood I recently built a serving table for our outside BBQ area out of pallets and common Pine 2x6's. In order to protect that wood from the elements here in SE Arizona (Sun and Monsoon Rains!), I used this product. It's a good thing, too, because the afternoon that I put it out for a BBQ, we had some of our monsoon rains! The water beaded up and was repelled where this product was used. Good proof of its ability to protect against water. Like a champ! Now, I just have to finish treating the pallets, too, when we get a sunny spell.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Preserva wood oil base Did not dry as directed 60degrees and above for 24-48 hours. Still tacky 72 hours out
Date published: 2016-11-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good oil-based clear wood sealer (based on years of use) I have been using this product for quite a few years now to protect the wood decks on a couple of flat-bed trailers I own. In my opinion, oil-based stains just hold up better than water-based stains over time. I usually treat my decks every year, and so far every new deck I have used these on has held up well. It is worth noting, however, that despite being clear, my new decks have turned very dark (almost black) over time. That could be mostly dirt build-up, as I don't clean them with a pressure-washer before treatment (as I would if this were a house deck I was trying to keep pretty). How much of this product you use will depend a lot on how dry the wood is. My procedure is to apply the stain to a fairly small area, then apply a second coat to any place where it has all soaked in, and then wipe up any excess 10-15 minutes later. I can do two coats on two trailers in about 2/3 of a gallon on my trailers where I started doing this when the wood was new. However, I also owned a trailer where the wood was quite dry & weathered when I started this. That deck didn't deteriorate much more once I started using this stain, but it soaked up well over 1 gallon each year on that trailer alone. So if you are treating quite dry and weathered wood, be prepared to use a lot more product. As with any oil-based paint or stain, be careful with your cleanup and disposal of products. I got sloppy once with my oil-soaked paper towels and found them smoldering, so I know that spontaneous combustion is a very real risk if you don't properly dispose of your oil-soaked products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A truly "clear" sealer! I have tried several different brands of "clear" sealer and they never turn out clear....always tint the original beautiful cedar fence dark. This product went on great with an airless sprayer and is truly a CLEAR sealer. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior, high quality product for harsh seasonal climate I use this product on my boat dock at Lake Tahoe every Spring to restore and protect it from the harsh extreme climate changes, ranging from intense direct summer sun to winter accumulated snow and ice. Follow manufacturer directions using bleach mixture to eliminate any mold or mildew prior to application, and wipe away excess product afterward or the surface will remain tacky for awhile. This product is outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice sealer! I got this clear sealer to seal a variety of small outdoor sheds. It went on very nicely on every surface. It dried smooth and clear. So far, it seems to be fairly rain-resistant. Wood needs a LOT of sealing here in the Rockies because of the rain, wind, snow, and sun at 9400 feet. The proof of this sealer's lasting value will be more apparent in another 6 months, so I'll try to get back here to post at that time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works Cleaned a bench I've had for over thirteen years then applied the Oil-based clear penetrating stain and sealer. I must say I was delighted with the out come. In fact it worked so well until I am doing my gate to my back yard. The clean-up was so easy, just a little soap and water cleaned the brush. I've never used a product with easy use and clean-up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not last at all. I installed this per directions on a new cedar deck. Within a few months, the deck started turning black. Now I need to strip all of it off the deck (700 sq ft) to put something decent on it.
