Amber and Mahogany colors for  Exotic Hardwoods.

Mahogany is the go to choice for Exotic Hardwoods such as IPE and has shown better color retention then any other Exotic Hardwood Stain!

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.

RE: Armstrong Clark Hardwood/Ipe Stain 5 Gallon
Ipe Oil favors the brown while the AC Mahogany is more reddish brown with IPE. Both can be cleaned and reapplied as needed. AC is probably a little easier to reapply.
RE: Armstrong Clark Hardwood/Ipe Stain 5 Gallon
I'm considering either IpeOil Natural or Armstrong Clark Mahogany. I love the way the Ipe looks (bare after rainfall) with red and dark brown tones. Whichever one I choose, I plan to redo it frequently /regularly to keep it looking new. Will either get darker with second coating in year 2? Which one will be closer to the deep brown/red color of Ipe over time? Which is easier to re-apply?

I just finished the huge job of removing 6 year buildup of Cabot Australian Timber Oil and want to move to an oil finish that can be easily reapplied (heck, I'd even apply it more than once a year if I can avoid all the removal work)
