Armstrong Oil Based Wood Stains


Armstrong ClarkFor all your wood, wood shake restoration and water repellant needs, come to Armstong-Clark Company. We specialize in wood restoration, oil-based coatings for wood and non-toxic wood stains of all kinds.

Armstrong deck and siding stain utilizes nondrying conditioning oils that divide from the drying side of the formula. These deep penetrating oils soak into the wood fibers where the wood's natural oils used to be. This procedure revitalizes the wood.

The drying oils remain at the surface while locking in the conditioning oils to form a dry to the touch barrier. Armstrong-Clark wood deck and siding stains also have vegetable oils, translucent oxide pigments, mildewcide, solvent and water repellents.

Armstrong-Clark stains are quality formulas back by five generations worth of experience in oil based coatings together with modern technology. Armstrong-Clark wood stains can far exceed your expectations for oil based coatings.
