PENOFIN exterior finishes were formulated to safeguard the natural beauty of wood and to prevent discoloration from the sun's ultraviolent rays. Penofin resists and retards bleeding caused by nails. Two key ingredients contribute to Penofin's exceptional abilities:       
* Brazilian Rosewood Oil provides tough, deepdown moisture protection while still allowing the wood to "breathe." There's no surface film to trap moisture, chip, or peel.  * Microscopically fine, transoxide pigments inhibit ultraviolent damage and darkening. They add deep, rich color without hiding the natural beauty of the grain. Semitransparent mist tones; Nantucket Mist mimics the look of weathered barn wood, Pacific Pearl Mist adds a whisp of white, and Mendocino Mist adds a hint of slate grey. 

By precisely combining these and other ingredients, we have created a line of transparent oil wood finishes unmatched in durability and beauty. Penofin® Products

If you’re looking for the best stain for cedar decks in a water-based product, then look no further. DEFY Deck Stain for Hardwoods is a synthetic, semi-transparent deck sealer specifically formulated for use on cedar, mahogany, redwood, and other dense or difficult to penetrate woods.

DEFY Deck Stain for Hardwoods also works well on composite woods. It is a VOC-compliant stain that penetrates wood pores to block out water and provide long lasting protection from weather damage.

DEFY Deck Stain for Hardwoods can be used on interior or exterior smooth hardwood surfaces including: wood siding, decks, outdoor wood furniture, and other hardwood surfaces.

DEFY Deck Stain for Hardwoods is available in Cedar Tone, Light Walnut, and Natural Pine. Finding a cedar stain or redwood deck stain product that actually works is difficult, as most deck stains have trouble penetrating oil-rich or dense wood types. This product was specifically designed with smaller resins to penetrate better which helps eliminate surface buildup and peeling. Other products out there claim to be the best stain for cedar decks but there is only one – DEFY Deck Stain for Hardwoods.    


DEFY Extreme Clear Wood Stain Fortified with Nano-Technology for Extreme Durability DEFY Extreme Clear Wood Stain is formulated using state of the art Nano-Technology to create a level of durability that has simply not been available in a clear wood stain finish in the past. DEFY Extreme Clear Wood Stain is the newest member of the DEFY line of wood products and is our most innovative high performance product yet. Violet rays cause wood to turn gray and become susceptible to water penetration and decay.  

DEFY Extreme Clear Wood Stain effectively protects the wood from the harmful effects of the sun and protects wood from graying using state of the art nano-technology.


DEFY Extreme Clear Wood Stain contains zinc oxide particles that reflect the damaging Violet Rays from the sun. When you reduce the size of these zinc particles down to the nano level, they become invisible to the naked eye. These nano-particles are distributed at a rate of over 30 trillion per square inch of surface area to provide protection from the sun in much the same way as they do when used in sun blockers and sunscreen lotions. This results in a "Crystal Clear" finish that when dry, will give the longest lasting UV protection on the market for a clear deck finish!  

Not only will this help with prolonging the graying, but the nano-particles are highly resistant to mold and mildew, enabling you to retain the natural color. This VOC compliant crystal clear stain provides UV protection without adding a tint or changing the look of your wood which means that you can keep your wood deck naturally beautiful for longer.
