Armstrong Mahogany, Amber, and Black Walnut Colors
The key to a good wood stain is one that will protect, last long, and reduce the frequency of maintenance recoats. When it comes to IPE and other exotic hardwoods, maintenance can be more frequent than on more typical wood species. This is due to the dense nature of the hardwood. It can be tricky to get a stain to penetrate the wood and once it does, it does not want to hold for more than a year or so. This is really just the nature of exotic hardwood.
The other factor in dealing with hardwood stains, is applying one that will enhance the natural beauty of the wood. Covering up such a gorgeous species would be a shame. To get both excellent protection and an enhanced appearance, Armstrong Clark Hardwood Stain is a popular choice.
Armstrong Hardwoods comes in two semi-transparent colors that enrich the look of exotic hardwoods, Mahogany, Black Walnut, and Amber. Whether you like the richer look of the Armstrong Mahogany, the darker Black Walnut, or the lighter natural look of Armstrong Amber, you will find it outperforms all other brands of exotic wood stains.
