Choose Stain Color:

Armstrong-Clark's stain offers two colors for long lasting life on exotic hardwoods. Note: There are not two different versions of Amber and Mahogany Colors. Same version and they can be used on all wood types, but these colors were designed for exotic wood like Ipe and Mahogany.

Tested by professionals, Armstrong Clark outperforms all other brands on exotic wood such as:

  • IPE
  • Mahogany
  • Cumaru
  • Tigerwood
  • All Brazilian Exotic Woods

Key Features of Armstrong Clark Hardwood Colors:

  • Application can be done in direct sunlight and on hot days.
  • Applies easily by roller, brush, garden sprayer or airless sprayer. During spraying - going back over with a brush or roller will help give a more even appearance. After 24 hours any remaining puddles or glossy spots can be removed using a dry rag.
  • Older wood is reconditioned by deep penetrating nondrying oils.
  • Drying oils lock in the conditioning oils while pigments and water repellents lock out moisture and UV damage.
  • Armstrong wood stain is compliant with all environmental standards.
  • Does not contain any offensive odors.

Amrstrong Clark Hardwood Colors

Armstrong-Clark Deck and Siding Stain applies at 300-400 sq ft per gallon. Depending on wood porosity, actual coverage will vary.

Note: There are not two different versions of Amber and Mahogany Colors. Same version and they can be used on all wood types.

    I have a red balau hardwood front porch that was installed one year ago. I am ready to stain it now and have a question...if we sand it first, do we still need to clean and brighten? Or can we stain after sanding?

    I have a mahogany wood deck that I stained with AC Amber, one coat.
    Can I go over it with the AC mahogany?
    Do I need to strip it first ?

    i have an IPE/tigerwood deck that needs to be restained. it was suggested that i use Restore a Deck stripper and brightner. As opposed to their cleaner and brightner. it was last stained over 2 years ago using AC mahogany. i also have a wolmanized deck that is attached below my hardwood deck. it will be contracted out to be cleaned and stained with AC mahogany also. i need to strip the upper tigerwood deck first prior to lower deck being refinished. Question is, how long can i leave the tigerwood deck unfinished. And, any further prep work need to be done prior to staining the tigerwood deck.
    Thanks

      After the prep of the stripper and brightener, you should stain the wood within a couple of weeks. No other prep is needed.

    Can the black walnut IPE stain be used on pressure treated decking? If it could, will this stain protect the wood as much as the semi-transparent stain?

      Armstrong · 07/29/2018
      Yes, the Black Walnut color can be used for all wood types. It is a semi-transparent color.

      With IPE wood, you will need to redo every year with the AC.

    I am interested in purchasing a 5 Gallon container of - Armstrong Clark Hardwood / Ipe Stain. It usually takes 1.5 gallons to stain my deck(which includes the railings). My question is the shelf life or storage requirements on the remaining product. I typically stain my deck on a yearly basis. Will the opened container store for 2-3 years? Obviously, there is some savings by purchasing in bulk.

    If opened the shelf life is about 1 year. It could last longer but that depends on how well you close the container and if stored correctly in a temperature controlled room. It cannot freeze or have any evaporation of the solvents. If it does, it will go bad.

    I have a deck heavily shaded by live oak trees. I have applied AC Amber on stripped and brightened ipe. I wiped off the excess with towels after 24 hours as per directions. A few days later it is still not dry. How long does it take to dry?

    Temperature and exposer to sun have direct role in drying. It will dry but it just takes time. Rinsing the deck with water will not remove the stain that has already penetrated the IPE and may help to remove some of the excess off the top. Just use a garden hose with a nozzle.

    I will be ordering your IPE stain in mahogany. The deck size is 1,072 sq feet, how much do you recommend and any suggestion on how to best apply? I know this wood is dense and the Penofin brand that we used several years ago left some sticky/tacky spots on the deck. So does this go on thin and is one coat usually sufficient? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also please advise what you charge for shipping and how we might expect for delivery to Maryland. Thank you, Jeneane

    One light coat is normal. 3-4 gallons should work for your amount when applied to IPE wood. Apply with a stain pad or brush and do not back wipe, just let it dry.

    I have a recently installed Ipe deck and I am trying to determine how much AC Mahogany I need to cover it.

    Separate sections of your website state the following:

    From staining instructions page: Armstrong-Clark Deck and Siding Stains will cover approximately [b]150-200 sq. ft. per gallon [/b]depending on age and wood porosity.

    From Ipe Stain page: Coverage Area for Exotic Hardwoods:
    2) Armstrong-Clark Deck and Siding Stain [b]applies at 300-400 sq ft per gallon.[/b] Depending on wood porosity, actual coverage will vary.

    Can you please advise? For Ipe, does the stain go further due to the wood's density, so therefore the 300-400 sq ft/gallon is more accurate? Thanks

    For IPE you coverage will be 300-400 sq. feet due to the density of the wood. Only one coat for IPE.

    Hi - We live in Raleigh, NC. Our deck was built 24 months ago and hasn't been stained/painted. The deck is pressure treated pine. It had some greying and mildew, which I treated with Jomax and bleach solution. There is, now, a good uniformity in color. What stain should I use for maximum longevity. I prefer a darker color. Thank you.
    Dave

    Use a semi-solid color for max protection. Maybe Oxford Brown?

    Carolyn Parmer:
    Several questions:

    I have read differing opinions as to whether or not a "Brightner" is necessary after stripping is done. Your opinion?

    What is the shelf-life of your hardwood product?

    For exotic hardwoods it is not needed but can be used.

    In a deck stain review, under Armstrong Clark, a writer says his deck was not drying after several sunny days. ACs representative reply is that AC usually dries in a day but it does depend on exposure to the sun......hopefully it will dry soon.

    My porch deck is covered, and some areas do not get sun. Will this product work for me. This project has cost too many painful hours to prepare, only to find out I have a mess on my hands.

    I need reassurance that It will dry as stated if applied correctly. Project is ready to go.

    Thank you for your prompt reply.
