Armstrong Clark stains are a traditional oil stain compliant everywhere - not a modified oil; no water. Can be applied in direct sun in the heat of the day. Can be applied to wood with up to 20% moisture. No peeling, cracking, flashing, or sticky shiners. No stripping, sanding, or media blasting on maintenance coats.
Able to walk on wet stain during application without having to back brush. Can be exposed to rain one hour after full absorption into the wood. No need for additional primers or sealers. If the 1st coat soaks into the wood within 60 minutes a second coat can be applied for extra protection. Armstrong Clark is the perfect solution for any exterior wood project!
