DEFY Original Synthetic Water Repellent Wood Stain is a unique water-based system that protects wood without damaging the environment. Most wood finishes are formulated with natural oils, such as linseed or soya, that only serve as a food source for mold and mildew. The synthetic resins in DEFY give it superior mold and mildew resistance without using excessive fungicides.
Water and sunlight rob wood of its natural strength and beauty. Wet and dry cycles cause wood to expand and contract which leads to warping, swelling and checking. Sunlight breaks down wood cells causing them to turn gray and become susceptible to water penetration and decay. Fortunately, this deterioration can easily be prevented with proper care and maintenance.
DEFY penetrates deeply into wood and adheres to the pores while still allowing water vapors to escape. This advantage enables DEFY Wood Stains to expand and contract without cracking or peeling. DEFY also contains UV blockers that last longer than those in any comparable wood finish. Two coats applied wet-on-wet go on smoothly and leave wood with the rich look of fine furniture.
