Armstrong’s Wood Stain drying oils stay at the surface, lock in the conditioning oils and create a dry to the touch barrier. Armstrong’s formulas also contain vegetable oils, transparent oxide pigments, water repellents, mildecide and solvent. Armstrong’s contains no titanium dioxide, easily applied by brush, roller or spray equipment.
Hard to apply, seemed very “oily” and the product doesn’t soak into the wood very well. The product looks ok after applying but is difficult to apply and brush on…kind of sticky. Did seem to be really good at resisting lap marks. 14 month exposure testing showed pretty poor results with the stain film breaking down and disappearing pretty badly.
