1 RAD Stripper and 1 RAD Brightener

Coverage: 500-1000 sq. feet per kit. Each Kit Makes 5 Gallons of Stain Stripper and 5 Gallons of Wood Brightener

Restore-A-Deck Stain Stripper is the only concentrated powdered wood stain stripper that is specifically designed to be injected through a pressure washer. RAD Stripper may also be applied using a garden type sprayer.

The R-A-D Stain Remover, when injected using a pressure washer, can remove penetrating transparent stains as well as semi-transparent wood coatings.

When RAD Wood Stain Stripper is applied using a pump-up sprayer, it is twice as potent and able to remove most transparent, semi-transparent and even semi-solid wood stains. It is also excellent for getting rid of failed semi-transparent acrylic stains. Coverage rates when applied with a pump sprayer are 100-200 sq. ft per gallon.

After using Restore-A-Deck Injectable Stain Stripper, the wood needs to be neutralized with the RAD Step 2 Brightener.

    Mahogany wood, was stained with Armstrong-Clark Mahogany stain 2 years ago. What prep do I need to do before re-applying another coat? The contractor at the time told me nothing more than a rinse with muratic acid would be needed, but reading through your site I see that may not be true.. thank you!

    I stripped twice and had to sand some areas. Is this good enough to start staining?

    I have an L shaped deck stained 2 years ago with your semi-transparent Natural Oak stain. Due to  over spray from sprinklers, and more sun exposure, sections of the deck have not held up well, while other sections look fine. I have corrected the sprinkler over spray problem and want to refinish the deck with the same product. My question is should the entire deck be stripped and brightened prior to stain so that it is all an even tone again, or will cleaning and brightening alone achieve this result? Also, with either treatment, do I need to cover the azalea plants nearest the deck, or will watering them down before and after treatment be enough to protect them?

      Strip and brighten. Cover plants when working and remove right after.

    I stripped and brightened most of my deck. (The far end will be finished up today). Should I go back over some of the areas that are still grey with more stripper before I stain it?

        Is this better. I can send another one later when the deck has full sun.

          Yes, we would strip it one more time. It is not the gray you are removing but the remnants of the old stain. Looks brown.

            Last question. Can I wait an hour or two between stripping and brightening? Or do I have to do the brightener right away?

              Yes, but sooner is better.

    When we initially redid our porch we used AC on the Ipe floor. Then when it was redone BM product was used bc I was told it was the same thing. It was not at all. What steps should I take to get the porch floor back to its original condition which was beautiful with the AC mahogany?

    I have a deck that I have stained twice with the Armstrong Semi Transparent Cedar stain. The deck looks pretty good but needs stain to be re-applied. Should I use Restore-a-Deck Stripper or just the Restore-a-Deck?

    I have a Tigerwood deck that I built last year. I put Thompson water seal on it. It is still water repellent, but the wood is gray. Will your stripper take this off so I can switch to your penetrating stain oil? Will it harm my powder coat rail posts or the vinyl coated cable? Thanks!
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Armstrong · 09/22/2021
      It will take off the Thompsons. It should not harm the rail post or vinyl but always test spot first.

    2 questions--1.Can the RAD stripper/brighteners be used on a roof deck that has a rubber roof under it, or will they damage the rubber?2. Can I mix some semi-transparent cedar to the hardwood Amber, to adjust the color for use on mahogany deck, or are they too different to mix?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Armstrong · 08/30/2021
      It will not damage the rubber. Just use the Amber color if applying to a Mohogany deck and it cannot be custom mixed.

    I am planning to use your stripper with both additives on my cedar porch previously coated several times with Olympic transparent stain.  Can this be applied with a standard pump sprayer or will it be so thick that it will need to be rolled on?

      Pump spray on and then pressure wash off.

    We recently had our ipe porch sanded and stained with Thompsons. We're removing with the RAD stripper and brightener prior to applying AC. 

    We also have a railing that was not sanded and stained. It's ~5 years old and grayed. Can we simply apply the RAD stripper and brightener to this at the same time and will the results match? 
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Armstrong · 07/16/2021
      Water down the stripper if the rails are just grayed to 2-3 oz of powder per gallon of water.

        Charles · 07/16/2021
        Okay perfect. I’ll have them do that first, then the porch below at full strength. 
        For ipe, does the AC stain need to be wiped off after to keep it from remaining greasy?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          Armstrong · 07/16/2021
          Only wipe if needed an hour later, not right away.

    I used ipe oil recently on newly installed tiger wood. It turned the wood to brown.  I like to use the AC amber stain. Can I strip the wood now or should I wait? Also, do I need to use the brightner before staining?

      You can strip it now and yes you need to brighten.

    I used my pressure washer detergent attachment to apply the RAD stripper, rinsed, then brightened. I didn’t realize I was supposed to use a pump sprayer to apply the stripper. After rinsing the RAD brightener off, there is no beading, which leads me to believe it still worked. Is this correct or do I need to redo the stripper? If so, do I also need to brighten again?

    I am removing the stains I used previously by completely sanding the deck, and evening the surface of cupped boards with  with a planer.  In hard to access areas I am stripping with a conventional gel wood stripper which is doing a fairly good job of removal and will finish those area with a little hand sanding.  Which products should I use to finish preparation before applying one of the semi solid Armstrong Clark stains?

    I have to remove the failed Behr stain used on my deck. Will Restore-A- Deck (1 RAD Stripper and 1 RAD Brightener) remove all the stain still present on the deck? Then I plan on using your Semi-Solid - Woodland Brown stain. Any advise more advise? 5/13/2021

      Strippers will not remove this as the stain is on their like a paint or solid stain. To remove you will need to sand off.

    I stained my new deck last year with Olympic Elite Maximum Semi transparent stain.  I applied 2 coats and after one winter it didn’t hold up very well.  I have to re stain it now again and was going to use AC semi solid because it gets full sun most of the day.  Do I have to use a stripper and brightener or just a cleaner and brightener as prep before I start staining

    Thanks for your prompt reply.  We followed the manufacturers recommendation and have used the product elsewhere on mahogany, cedar and teak with excellent results.  The vertical surfaces of our IPE deck have performed well.  Only the horizontal surfaces failed.  My inclination is to apply the stain to the vertical surfaces of the deck after sanding (consistent with your recommendation) and maintain the other surfaces as is.  It is a large deck and would be a nightmare to have to sand the posts, rail sides, skirts and risers.  We are currently building an IPE fence.  Am I able to acquire samples of the IPE stain in the three colors?

    Howard · 04/13/2021
    I have a two year old IPE deck with one coat of stain and two coats of a clear polymeric topcoat.  Unfortunately, the existing products have failed miserably, either due to poor conditions at time of application or product failure.  In any event, I need to start over.  Stripping and/or sanding seems like a necessity.  My question is, will the Restore-A-Deck stripper remove the polymeric topcoat?  Will restoring to bare wood require more than one application of the stripper?  What other advice can you provide?  Thanks.

      No, you will need to sand this off. FYI, you should never topcoat a stain, it will peel.

    I have a Tigerwood Deck finished with Ipe Oil every year or so. Would only sanding down be as good as using your strip and brighten product. (I believe in the past I have sometimes sanded AND brightened, but also have just sanded. Why do all of your hardwood finishes contain stain (as opposed to just oil), and which stain would be best for retaining the color in the picture? THX!

      Armstrong · 03/29/2021
      You will need to fully remove the current stain using the RAD Stripper Kit. You must have a stain for UV protection. Any of the 3 hardwood colors would work. Color is up to you.

        Ok so sanding back to bare wood would not remove it well enough ? Would I have to use stripper kit as you've indicated every time I reapply if I stuck with Armstrong?

          Armstrong · 03/31/2021
          Sanding will not prep it. When switching brands of stain you always have to remove the previous coating. In this case, it is very easy to remove the Ipe Oil. When you recoat with AC later on, just clean and brighten for prep.
