Advanced technology enables Beauti-Tone to formulate a unique resin blend of alkyd and acrylic. This blend enjoys the deep penetration benefit of an alkyd (oil), and the colourfast and mildew resistance benefits of an acrylic. This solid stain allows the natural texture of the wood to show through in thousands of beautiful colours, including three pre-mixed: redwood, new cedar, and walnut. Now it's easier than ever to create a cohesive exterior colour scheme! Two coats are recommended for maximum protection, and no primer is required. Designated with the Home Owner's Guarantee.
