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.

RE: Armstrong Clark Hardwood/Ipe Stain 5 Gallon
Quoting Anthony tambasco:
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 150-200 sq. ft. per gallon depending on age and wood porosity.

From Ipe Stain page: Coverage Area for Exotic Hardwoods:
2) Armstrong-Clark Deck and Siding Stain applies at 300-400 sq ft per gallon. 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?

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......hopefu lly 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.

Situation: Mahogony wrap-around porch that is covered to (7-10 feet on 3 sides exposed to sun early am one side, following to opposite side late afternoon. Have used various products, cetol, penofin twice with graying long before 1 year.

Was set to go with One Time, till I learned that exposure to sun is necessary to cure. (my samples were not drying) I called the company and the did not recommend for my application.

I am not set to use AC Hardwood, but am a little leary after reading one comment about drying not taking place within 2 days.... Can you comment on this? Please

If it did not dry in two days then it was over applied most likely. AC is a full curing stain that does dry 100%.

A 5 gallon container of AC Hardwood stain in 'Amber' is being used on a recently completed cedar deck. Can this stain be tinted darker? If so, what product do you recomend to do this?
Quote
-
Alec, no reason with AC.
Quote
-
Any point to using the hardwood stain on cedar? I have read with other stains you can do this to get better penetration into the wood.

Do you have dealers in Canada or do you ship to Canada for individual home owners? Thanks.

re: Owner
The Amber would darken the Tigerwood similar as if was wet with water.

To prep the older wood use the the Restore A Deck Kits.

Owner
Will Armstrong Clark Hardwood/Ipe Stain in Amber change the color of Tigerwood on a new deck wich was just installed?
What should I use to get the color back on a 5 year grayed Tigerwood deck?
