Update on Why Defy Stain Penetrates Better than other water-based decking stains
Due to advancements in resin technology, the Defy Exterior Wood and Deck stains have become the best penetrating water-based deck stains on the market. We love hearing from our customers who have used the Defy Stains or have questions about the application. We appreciate your input, so feel free to leave a comment below and pictures of your completed projects if you have them.
Finding a good penetrating stain is the key to a lasting finish. Penetrating stains dive into the wood to protect it from the elements as opposed to film-forming stains that stay on top of the surface and are susceptible to peeling and flaking.
Defy wood stains are some of the best stains on the market because they penetrate so well. From their original synthetic blend to the newest in stain technology, Defy Extreme, these stains give the results homeowners are looking for.
Defy Exterior Wood and Decking stains do not use traditional “paint” resins like the other deck stain manufacturers. The resin they incorporate into their stains is specially formulated for deep penetration into the wood. The resins themselves are a much smaller molecule size than traditional paint resins. This allows the Defy to soak deeper into the wood. The better the stain gets into the wood, the better the stain will perform when it comes to wear and tear. This gives Defy Stains the characteristics of a traditional oil-based stain but in an environmentally “green” friendly product.
