    Q:How long does it take to dry?
    by|Apr 4, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Burnett, this product typically dries in 24 hours when applied in standard temperaturs. Application in high humidity or especially hot/cold environments may prolong drying time. In general we recommend waiting 24-48 hours before light foot traffic or furniture come in contact with the surface. If you have any other questions feel free to reach us at techservicerequests@ppg.com or 1-800-441-9695 between 8am-5pm ET.

          BRIGHT ORANGE. MORE LIKE ORANGE PAINT
          Unless you want your wood product to look like a clown color of bright orange I would look elsewhere. The initial color was a mix of pink and orange and I had hoped the orange would fade some as it dried. It did not. Now half of my real cedar wood fence looks like an orange fun house color. If you notice in my images it almost matches perfectly with the orange fake plastic wood that is used for my neighbor's swingset. Very unhappy and I hope this weathers quickly so I can fix it next year.

            The worse product I have ever used
            I bought this to use on new porch. I sand down all of it applied 2 coats as directions. And this is the results. Now everything has to be redone. And I don't know if it can be recoated. I have never had this happen before.

              Poor quality
              Prepped with their deck cleaner and stained it last summer. This is what it looked like within after a couple of Seattle rains. Just awful stuff.

                So many people cant be wrong
                I can assure you what people are saying about color being wrong is one hundred percent correct in my case. Acorn brown. That is a no for me. More like orange. So another customer stuck with and orange deck. $$ down the drain. Sad before and after pics below.

                  bad absorption, runs&drips difficult to remove
                  I've used lots of oil based deck stains. Since ingredients not listed on container, wasn't sure whether this was oil based, but spontaneous combustion warning made me think it was. However, when applied I noticed it didn't smell like an oil stain, also didn't absorb into wood like oil based. Runs, drips occur, of course, and with oil stains re-wiping is all that's needed unless completely dried. This stuff however "sets" within minutes and nearly impossible to remove run-drip marks by overwiping. See photo. Very dissatisfied!

                    I used this to protect the cedar boards used to build a new fence. I laid them flat to work on them because the product is the consistency of milk. I could not use it on an existing fence because it would just run off the brush before it made contact. I won’t know how well it actually works until we move into Winter weather but it looks like it penetrated so I am hopeful. The wood does look richer with the coating.

                    Inconsistent color
                    After prepping deck according to directions, one container provided the perfect color. Completed all trim and was very happy. Began applying to floor boards of deck and it is VERY RED. Color is NOT at all like previous container. All say Acorn Brown. Also, very streaked. Seems more solid cover than semi-transparent. But most importantly, color does not match! Now forced to strip deck, prep, and re-stain. I'm too old for this and have already spent a lot of money. So disappointed.

                      Premium looking stain
                      I have used this particular color to refinish my 10 year old deck. It looks fantastic. The sequoia red color is on the bright side, which makes 10 year old wood like new. Of course a thorough removal of old stain/paint is very important. I also used acorn brown for some garden furniture, which has a darker tone. When I built my Adirondack chairs recently, I chose this stain specifically for the bright color, which makes the pressure treated wood looking like premium wood
