Arborcoat WaterBased Stain Review

This product was very difficult to apply, it doesn’t absorb easily in to the wood. Penetration was not very good, the product laid on the surface looking more like thin paint. 14 moth weathering tests were pretty good.  The product held its color and only showed minor peeling and mildew growth in the denser grain of the boards.
