Product applies like paint and has a strong odor. The stain doesn’t soak into the wood very well. Almost looks like orange paint. Not really a semi-transparent finish but rather more of a semi-opaque…hides the grain a little more than a semi-transparent should. 14 month weathering showed good color retention and resistance to fading but there was a good amount of peeling of the film over areas of the denser, winter growth rings on the board.
