Defy Epoxy Fortified Wood Stain is a high-grade semi-transparent finish that aids in the prevention of damaging effects caused by moisture, mold, mildew, and UV rays.

Defy Epoxy is a unique blend of epoxy resins that can be used on interior or exterior wood surfaces. It is best used on pressure treated and rough sawn lumber. It is easy to maintain, resists flaking and peeling, provides the toughness and performance of Epoxy, and cleans up with soap and water.
Defy Extreme (Improved version of the Defy Epoxy with Nano-Particles of Zinc Oxide)
Defy Extreme is the newest formula of wood stain using new technology to provide a long-lasting finish. Researched, developed, and tested for a year and a half, Defy Extreme has taken the performance of exterior semi-transparent wood stains to a whole new level. With increased durability, performance, and weather resistance, Defy Extreme blocks out and absorbs harmful UV rays to act like a sunscreen keeping the wood from becoming damaged. 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.
Defy Extreme is better suited for smooth surfaces, unlike Defy Epoxy which is best on rough-sawn surfaces. Defy Extreme can be used on smooth wood siding, decks, wood furniture, and other hardwoods. It can also be used in both interior and exterior applications where needed. Because it dives deep into smooth wood surfaces it provides excellent protection from water penetration, UV rays, mold, and mildew. It is also Eco-Friendly and VOC-compliant and cleans up with soapy water.
