Product Datasheets

DEFY Epoxy Fortified wood stain is a high-performance, semi-transparent, penetrating finish that helps to prevent the destructive effects of water, fungi, and UV radiation on exterior wood.

Staining pressure treated wood is easy when you use this professional deck stain. DEFY Epoxy Fortified wood stain comes in three semi-transparent deck stain colors — Natural Pine, CedarTone, and Light Walnut.

Note: Driftwood Gray and Redwood are no longer available in the Epoxy Fortified Wood Stain formula. These colors are now part of our Extreme Wood Stain line. Extreme Wood Stain is an improved version of our Epoxy with additional nano-technology added for better resistance to mold and mildew as well as added UV protection.


With its unique epoxy fortified synthetic resin, this product is able to penetrate wood pores in order to block out the damaging effects of weather while allowing the natural beauty of the wood to shine through. DEFY Epoxy Fortified wood stain is ideally suited for staining pressure-treated wood and can be used on interior or exterior wood surfaces including: wood siding, log homes, decks, fences, shake shingles, outdoor wood furniture, pressure-treated lumber, and all other naturally porous wood surfaces. For smooth hardwoods or oily softwoods, such as cedar, mahogany, redwood, and other dense woods, use DEFY Deck Stain for Hardwoods.

Easy Maintenance

This professional deck stain will give your deck years of protection and is easy to maintain. Periodically, as the surface begins to get dirty or dull, simply wash it down with a mild detergent and water. As the weather begins to wear away at the surface and the color begins to fade, a maintenance coat will need to be applied. To check the surface to see if it is ready for a maintenance coat, simply sprinkle a little water on it. If the water is immediately absorbed into the wood, then it is ready to be recoated.

The first step in the maintenance process is to apply a coat of Wood Brightener. This will lighten any minor graying and clean the surface. Allow the surface to dry for 24 hours, then apply a single-coat of DEFY Epoxy Fortified Wood Stain as directed on the label. A maintenance coat will generally result in a slightly darker color than the original application.

All of the DEFY professional deck stain colors contain powerful sunscreens to block damaging UV rays. Ultraviolet rays cause wood to turn gray and become susceptible to water penetration and decay. Epoxy Fortified wood stain contains synthetic resins that do not attract mildew and algae like other natural resin (oil-based) stains do. Additionally, this professional deck stain is a water repellent that reduces water penetration up to 90%.
