Step 2 Wood Brightener is used after the wood cleaner to "brighten" the wood while neutralizing the cleaner to a natural pH balance. This step will improve the overall appearance of your wood while helping the wood deck stain

The kit covers 750-1000 sq feet when mixed.

1 Armstrong Clark 5 Gallon Pail

Armstrong-Clark's deck and siding wood stain makes use of conditioning oils that part from the drying oils in the formula. The nondrying oils penetrate into the wood and take the place of the wood's diminishing natural oils. This process revives and restores wood.

The drying oils stay on the wood surface and lock in the conditioning oils to produce a barrier that is dry to the touch. Armstrong's deck and siding wood stain contain vegetable oils in addition to transparent pigments, solvents, mildewcides and water repellents.

  • Application can be done in direct sunlight and on hot days. If the first coat of stain penetrates within 30 minutes an additional coat may be applied for extra protection.
  • Applies easily by roller, brush, 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.

Coverage Area

Armstrong-Clark Deck and Siding Stain applies at 150-200 sq ft per gallon. Depending on wood porosity, actual coverage will vary.

Important

*We do not guarantee stain colors as they will vary widely depending on the wood type, age of wood, prepping of wood, and application. Small samples are available at top.

    I started powerwashing my deck to remove failed Thompson semi-transparent stain. After reading you site I guess I should strip & brighten first. Should I apply the stripper/brightener to the already powerwashed boards too? Would wolman brand work in the spirit of time to strip/bright? Also I was thinking of AC semi transparent. It's p/t wood, full afternoon sun in NE Ohio but parts get mildew. Deck was cleaned and brushed w/ Scott's cleaner in the pics.

      Yes, you should trip and brighten all this wood. Not sure if the Wolman prep products will work well or not for this.

    Have already stripped our deck and cant find a good brightener in canada. Can we use just the radar brightener now. Also we just want yo.be able to clean an reapply every couple of years. No stripping or sanding...is the transparent a good choice?

      All of the AC colors can be cleaned and recoated as needed down the road without the need to strip. Yes, use the RAD brightener.

    I am interested in ordering the 5 gallon and stripper/brightner kit and possibly 2 extra gallons. Are you still shipping to Ontario, Canada and do you know how long it will take? I know that with covid19 there are delays.

      Armstrong · 06/30/2020
      Yes, we are shipping there. About 1-2 weeks.

    We have a redwood deck that we stained with Armstrong Sequoia about 4 years ago. Some thin and a few small grey spots are showing. I think it was sanded with 100grit before staining. We see some red that transfers to our shoes and socks. Now that it is time to prep and restrain what (steps and products) do you recommend to reduce the red transfer?

      Use the RAD stripper and brightener and then stain with one coat. Do not sand.

      3 Kits of the RAD Cleaner/Brightener. About 20-25 gallons for two coats of the stain applied wet on wet.

    I have a 30 year old deck. Just power washed, and planning on sanding this week. Should I use the cleaner/brightener or the stripper kit? Semi-transparent or Semi-solid stain?

    I’m having someone redo my porch, it is cypress and did not last thru Harvey with the last product I used. I’m looking for the best coverage for full sun & partial shade (mildew growth). I do want color. Thank you!

    Would this stain work on IPE deck? or do I have to buy an IPE specific stain?
    I had used semi-transparent Mahogany stain previously and interested in re-staining my deck.

    What do you recommend using to apply this stain to a deck, railing and privacy wall? Thanks!

    What is the minimum temperature it can be applied? And how long after and before rain does it need? (Looking at semitransparent)
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Armstrong · 09/03/2019
      45 degrees is minimum. 48 hours to dry after prep or rain before staining. 12-24 hours before it can rain on it.

    Planning to use Armstrong kit on deck after 5 year old previous stain. Typical wear and tear with natural staining needs at 5 year mark. Cedar deck. Recommendations for semi trans stain after clean & bright applications? Please forward color reviews as well.

    Irina · 08/23/2018
    Ok, thank you. But wouldn't the Brightener take off the existing stain? I mean wouldn't it be more useful, after cleaning and pressure washer the deck, to add to the stain more layers instead of taking the existing color off with the Brightener?
    Thank you very much!

      A brightener is not a stripper or remove color but a neutralizer of the cleaner.

    Hi, I used your AC semi transparent Sierra Redwood stain 2 years ago on my new deck. To restain it this year with the same stain - do I have to clean and brighten it with your Cleaner/Brightener Kit or I could just clean it with the Cleaner and pressure wash it, before applying the stain? Thank you very much!

      Use the cleaner and the brightener kit.

    If we go with a lighter color stain and do not like the results, can we go to a darker stain the next year?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Armstrong · 03/24/2018
      Yes but you will need to clean the wood first.

        Would it being too difficult to go from a dark stain to lighter? We want a dark color but are concerned with our dogs nails scratching it and having the scratches be more pronounced with the darker color. If that was the case, if a couple years when it is time to restain would it be too hard to go with a lighter shade? I really would not want to sand or strip the deck. Our deck gets full sun so I am expecting the stain to fade in time.

          Going from dark to light will require stripping but it is not any harder than cleaning. Just removes the previous coating.

    cmcbones:
    Hi, I want to closely match my cedar railings with my ipe decking. If I plan to use the mahogany stain on the decking, what would be the best semi-transparent stain color for the railings? Chestnut?

    Also, if I do not use all of the stain, what is the best way to store it for the next time (and how long can it be stored)?

    thanks!

    Chestnut would be closest but it will not be exact due to the different wood types. Store in a closed container and in a temperature controlled room.

    How much uv protection does the natural tone offer? It will be used on cedar.

    The Natural is the lightest tint which means it has the least amount of UV protection of all the colors. How much tint in the stain is directly related to UV protection.
