Q:Can this product be used on OSB Plywood?
by|Feb 16, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi JEFFRO, thank you for your question. Although the Transparent Oil-Based Wood Stain can be applied to vertical plywood, it's not recommended for use on OSB as the binders that hold the wood strands together may prevent the stain from adhering properly. Have a great day! - Randy

        Q:Can I add sand or gravel to this wood sealer for a textured/non-slip surface?
        by|Oct 24, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi there, thank you for your question. As it turns out, we do not recommend mixing sand or gravel into our Transparent Waterproofing Wood Finish. That may affect the opacity and performance of the coating. Alternatively, I recommend checking our textured wood coatings like DeckOver or our Porch & Patio Floor Paint. They provide an opaque slip-resistant finish. Have a great day!

          Yellow! Not clear.
          The product color Clear 400 IS NOT CLEAR!!!! It's yellow. My husband bought it to waterproof two gray outdoor cabinets. They were a beautiful shade of gray. Now they are so ugly, I'm going to need to replace or resurface them. Look at the photos.

          Hello, thank you for your review. I'm so sorry that your project didn't turn out as expected. I can understand your frustration, and I apologize for any confusion about our DeckPlus Transparent Waterproofing Wood Finish. The "clear" finish refers to the level of transparency of the product, not the color. A good example of this is how Jell-O is available in a variety of colors but is completely clear. I recommend removing the stain by stripping or sanding before recoating the surface. It may be best to use a stain that does not provide UV protection, as that is typically what gives a clear stain color. In any case, customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please reach out to us directly if you need further assistance; our Customer Care team is happy to help! -Lina Behr

            If you want yellow wood this is perfect. I wanted natural colored wood but this transparent stain has UV blocker that is VERY yellow and will dry just like it looks wet.

            Garbage. Disappointed.
            Absolutely disappointed. Total waste of time and money. Curious if it was a bad batch. Never had issues like this. Some areas looked yellow, other areas looked like nothing was even applied.

            Hi MP24, thanks for your review. I'm sorry to hear about the uneven finish of your project. To fix this, I recommend applying a thin second coat to even out the color; you can test this on an inconspicuous area first to see if it gives you the look to want. Customer satisfaction is very important to us, so feel free to reach out to our Customer Care team directly for further assistance. They are always happy to help.

              Slight yellow tint seems to basically be yellow
              Not sure why this is called clear penetrating oil with an enormous amount of yellow in it. Highly disappointing as I now have to rebuild this barn door and start over.

              Hi Rick, thank you for your review. Sorry to hear that the color didn't turn out as expected. Although there is a slight tint for UV protection, it shouldn't have turned your project completely yellow. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback.

                Leaves a yellowish tin.
                I purchased this to refinish a older swing chair. It was all sanded down to raw wood. I opened the transparent clear can, oil base. It has a yellow tin, it was shaken at the store and was stirred also. I followed the directions, I am a contractor so every product has a little different application. Once this project was completed no runs but it has a yellowish tin? Says clear, transparent on the can? Would not recommend this product at all. Yes it was for exterior applications.

                Hi Stuart, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that your wood stain did not turn out as expected. I can understand how the "clear" finish can be confusing. This would refer to the opacity of the stain and not the color. Similar to how jello can come in a variety of colors but will still be clear.

                  Want to be a bear? be a grizzly with BEHR STAIN.
                  Spectacular application and color….although “clear” it really made the fence pop.

                  VERY HAPPY
                  Applied after power washing. Started applying with brush and pad which went very slow. Purchased a $129 Wagner sprayer....it went quick. I don't usually use oil based products.....but glad I did. I am extremely happy with the results after 1 coat. The wood was about 18 months old, wanted to insure it had dried out. The pic is before and after.

                    great stain, will turn yellow because it is an OIL not a sealer
                    to all the people complaining about it turning their surfaces a mustard yellow... it blatantly says to test it on an inconspicuous spot before full application. additionally you need to clean your deck first.. i used the behr 63 deck cleaner(oxalic acid based) which works amazingly. again, people expecting a "transparent" finish are used to seeing thompsons water seal or something similar- which is not made for wood but is 100% clear. thompsons is a masonry product which WILL 100% seal your deck, but additionally adds a magnifying lens style coat on top which amplifies the suns rays. so the thompsons WILL absolutely waterproof your surface but it harms the wood in the long-run. this product here is a PENETRATING OIL. it helps replenish the natural waterproofing oils a wood may have had while alive. yes it turns yellow, but the woodgrain pops like crazy. ALWAYS look for a penetrating oil without any sealer involved.

                      First coat - great. Then second - YELLOW?
                      I did half my deck one day and it looked great. I did the other half of my deck a few days later - and it came out yellow! I’m so confused and disappointed. Will need to return.
