Armstrong-Clark Company Wood Stains

Armstrong's deck and siding wood stain has nondrying conditioning oils that separate from the drying side of the formula. These oils penetrate deep into the deck or siding wood fiber where the wood's natural oils used to be. This process rejuvenates the wood. The drying oils stay at the surface, lock in the conditioning oils and create a dry to the touch barrier. Armstrong's deck and siding wood stain formulas also contain vegetable oils, transparent oxide pigments, water repellents, mildewcide and solvent.

Quality is what Armstrong-Clark brings to you. Backed by five generations of oil based coatings experience, coupled with modern technology, Armstrong-Clark can meet and exceed your need for oil based wood coatings.

  • Can be applied in direct sunlight and heat of day. If the first coat penetrates within 30 minutes a second coat can be applied for extra protection.
  • Easily applied by brush, roller, garden sprayer or airless spray equipment.
    When spraying - back-rolling or brushing will help even out appearance. If there are any puddles or glossy spots after 24 hours, remove with dry rag.
  • Non-drying oils penetrate deep to recondition older wood.
  • Drying oils, pigments and water repellents protect against water and UV damage and lock in the nondrying oils.
  • Complies with all government environmental standards.
  • No offensive odor.

Armstrong-Clark Wood Deck Stain applies at about 150-200 feet per gallon. Actual coverage varies depending on wood porosity.

    I prepped our mahogany deck yesterday using the RAD stripper and brightener kit. Planning to stain using AC mahogany stain. Sounds like I need to wait 48 hours before applying stain to allow deck to dry? Any other tips? I just happened to catch that in the comments here. Is there a tips and tricks site for staining?

      Stain pad or brush is best.

        Thank you, start with pad and then use the brush?  Can you back over the stain with the brush?  
        Best practice to mix my five gallons?

          Use either or. You do not need to brush in after a pad. Just use either to apply evenly.

              Remove top completely and then use a 5-gallon paddle mixer on your drill. You can get these at any hardware store.

    I have an outdoor table that I made 3 years ago from Ipe.  I coated it with Armstrong Clark Amber 3 years ago.  After 3 years in the sun, it was time to re-stain it.  I hit it with Restore-A-Deck stain stripper and then brightener.  After waiting an hour or two I stained it with the same can of Armstrong Clark Amber.  My problem is that I forgot to wipe off the stain, and now after several days of drying, it looks tacky and like it has fur.  What would you suggest I do to fix this at this point?

      You cannot apply AC 1-2 hours after prep. It has to dry for 48 hours after prep. You will need to strip it off and start over as it will probably not cure now.

        My apologies.  I waited 48 hours.  I should have said that instead of "an hour or two".  Can I just apply a light coat now and then wipe immediately?

          Light coat and wipe after an hour, not right away.

    How much would shipping be for 5 one-gallon cans? I know it's free shipping on 5 gallon container but too heavy to pour.

    Hi!
    Im restaining my Mahogany shutters with Black Walnut, the color is not quite as dark as I was hoping for more black to kill the red, without solid coverage. I have prepped properly with RAD stripper and hand sanded to smooth grain out...would you have any suggestions to darken the stain without altering the PH/protective agents. I have attempted an a light buffing prior to second coat....but not much difference ....semi-solid is not an option for me.

    Thanks, Kim

    I stained my new deck last year with transparent natural tone. I waited three months before using restore a deck kit and staining. After the winter my deck was really dirty I guess it’s black mildew (see attached photo). All the horizontal surfaces on my fencing was the same. I have now cleaned my deck and fencing ready for a second coat which I intend doing a wet on wet coat. I believe the deck was dirty due to the fact that the stain did not allow any water to absorb into the wood. My question is, will I see this dirt after every winter and require to clean every year.

      Hard to say but in general, it is not possible for a deck stain to prevent dirt from laying on top of the stain.

    After reading a whole combination of reviews I went with Armstrong Clark Mahogany for my 18-year-old mahogany deck. I went to the company website and ordered a sample can to test for color. Liked it and the way it went on so ordered a 5lb can. Stripped old Cabots stain (Cabots actually worked quite well but wanted to try something else to see if it would last longer and also because AC is said to be able to just put on a fresh coat each year with little preparation) using RAD stripper and brightener. Then decided I wanted to sand it down to smooth out some areas and flatten some boards which had slightly curled over 18 years. Brightened again after sanding. (not sure if that was necessary but it looked awesome after I did it. Applied Armstong Clark with a combination of brush and pad. Went on very smooth (I recommend Cabots stain pad over the Amazon highly-rated Shurline pad, WAAAY better). I started at 6 am but as always the cutting and brush work took way longer than anticipated so I was still working at noon when it was scorching sun and over 92 degrees. Saw zero difference in application ability from 70 degrees in shade to 92 degrees and full sun. Thought it was going to dry much darker than I hoped as it darkened within minutes but actually settled into a very nice color with individual mahogany boards keeping their own character. Pouring rain today and very happy to see water beading as if the deck was made of plastic. This with only one thin coat. Will update this review in one year when I see how it holds up from a weathering standpoint. My deck is almost full sun from sunrise to sunset.

    How long should I wait to stain a new deck that was built with KDAT (Yella) wood? I am reading that when the water does not bead up, and then to use a cleaner/brightener...is that correct?

      Wait 1-2 months and then use the RAD Cleaner and Brightener Kits for the prep. Just one coat of stain.

    I have 13 x 15 (197 sq ft) deck area + the railing and spindles around. Can I make do with one gallon? Also, do I need 2 coats or just one? I am thinking of semi-solid stain.

    By the way, I just purchased your stripper + brightener kit.

    Bo Hica:
    Can Armstrong Clark Semi-transparent stain be applied to new cedar deck and railing? If not, how long should I wait?

    Armstrong suggests that new wood weather for about 3 months. Prep after the wait with the Restore A Deck Cleaner/Brightener Kits.

    How long will a partially used can of stain last?

    Depends on how ell you store it and if the lid is 100% closed or not. It needs to be stored in a temperature controlled room. 12 months is shelf life but you may get longer if stored correctly.

    I ordered the natural oak stain and your information on the website says that it can be applied with a garden sprayer. Information on the can says to NOT use a garden sprayer. Could you clarify this, please?

    It can be applied with a good quality garden sprayer. It will need to be back brushed to ensure is evenly applied.

    I purchased two gallons of A-C stain about 18 months ago. I ended up only opening and using 1 gallon. The other has sat unopened in my basement since I purchased it. I'm planning to use R-A-D cleaner and brightener and then re-staining the deck with A-C. Can I use this unopened can that I purchased 18 months ago?

    As long as it was not opened and it did not freeze, then it should be good. Stir well as it does settle.

    I bought the stain in Amber and already applied it to my deck which is softwood. I read on the Armstrong Clark website that this specific stain colour is made for hardwood. How will this affect my deck?

    You can use the Amber on all wood types. No issues.

    Shelly:
    Is the transparent stain considered a type of timber oil? Can I re-coat every year with just a soap and water scrub down as prep? No stripping needed?

    AC is oil based. You can clean and reapply as needed. Use a deck cleaner as prep.

    R Buford:
    Currently have Cabot Australian Timber Oil in Mahogany Flame on a pressure treated pine deck. It is very difficult to find and have read some negative reviews online esp with the move to the water base formula. I plan on stripping the deck with RAD Stripper, then using the brightener, then reapplying stain. The ATO has held up well on the spindles, not so great on the deck boards, railings, and stairs. Is the Armstrong Mahogany close enough in color to the Cabot ATO Mahogany Flame?

    Is is very similar but not exact.
