In a recent Armstrong Clark Hardwood Stain review it was proven that such exotic hardwoods like IPE are extremely dense and difficult to penetrate. The special formula of Armstrong Clark Hardwood Stain has light bodied oils and solvents that allow deep absorption rates into hard to penetrate woods like IPE and other Brazilian hardwoods. This allows for better color retention and water repellency.

In addition to weather protection, Armstrong Clark Hardwood Stain utilizes drying and nondrying oils. The nondrying oils break apart for the drying side of the formula to penetrate into the wood fibers and replace the natural lost oils. This helps rejuvenate and condition the cellular structure of the wood to bring back flexibility. Moreover, the drying oils stay on top of the surface and cure to lock in the conditioning oils and form a barrier of protection from UV and water damage. This unique blend of oils is an innovative breakthrough backed by five generations of oil-based coatings experience.

 Armstrong Clark Hardwood Stain Review

Armstrong Clark Hardwood Stain also contains special mildewcides to inhibit mold and fungal growth. An official Armstrong Clark Hardwood Stain review showed no peeling and only small amounts of wearing were noticeable after 2 years from initial application. Professionals use Armstrong Clark for the ease of application, excellent penetration, and superb coverage rates. Depending on the wood’s porosity coverage rates vary form 200-300 square feet per gallon.

Reports are that Armstrong Clark Hardwood Stain is easy to maintain. Only a light washing with a wood cleaner is needed to remove common dirt and grime prior to recoating. This is common for good penetrating stains that do not form a film and peel on the surface. Armstrong Clark Hardwood Stain can be tinted to Amber or Mahogany. Both colors naturally highlight the wood grain evenly and bring out the wood’s natural beauty. Use Armstrong Clark Stain for Hardwoods and protect your exotic wood surfaces with a professional like finish.

    We recently sanded and refinished our 10 year+ mahogany deck with your hardwood mahogany stain. Looks great. We don’t want it getting any darker so what should we use for future treatments?

      Depends on what you are trying to remove. Brand and type of stain? Pictures would help as well.

        We are trying to remove a product called Deck Over from Home Depot! It was very hard to apply & has been peeling! Some spots are on really good! I don’t know if we did not prep right but I want it off.

          You cannot strip the Deckover. You will have to power sand to remove it.

    I have a mahogany porch that I cleaned and brightened but see some boards along the edges that feel rough and I would like to sand with 80 grit. If I sand a few boards, do I need to sand all? Will stain look uneven if not? Also, can I just remove the dust with a blower or do I need to wash with something? Also, are there photos of the Amber verses Mahogany stain on mahogany wood? I only see it on IPE wood in your photo album. Thank you!

      If you sand you have to sand all evenly or the stain will not take evenly. Best to brighten the wood after sanding and rinse well with a pressure washer. We only have the photos on IPE.
