Why Choose Deckwise IPE oil 100 VOC stain?

As we all know, water can be lumber’s biggest enemy. This robust hardwood oil stain penetrates down deep into the dense, resin-rich fibers of hardwoods to highlight the all-natural wood grain depth and patina qualities. Ipe Oil® hardwood deck oil stain is a durable, clear, and stain resistant hardwood oil finish. Our hardwood stain utilizes transoxide pigments for powerful U.V. defense and extra grain enhancement. This deck oil formula provides advanced safeguards from the destructive effects of severe temperatures, humidity, mildew, mold, fungi, rainfall, snow, and the sun’s damaging rays.

When it comes to fungi and mildew growth, we all look to linseed oil as the culprit. While Ipe Oil® does contain linseed as one of its components, it also contains synthetic resins that are made from linseed oil, so it’s not just an oil but a blend of different things for superior results.

What does make a big difference with mildew growth is the quality and amount of fungicide used in the formula. DeckWise uses a very high quality fungicide, and quite a lot of it.

Prep is key to a longer lasting deck oil stain

The most important thing with any oil finish is making sure the surface is clean and dry before application. This will go a long ways towards reducing the likelihood of any mildew growth on the wood. As fungicides are only designed to inhibit the growth of mildew on the stain, not kill existing spores that may be on the wood before applying.  Please prep wood  prior to sealing with Deckwise IPE oil stain.

Our hardwood oil deck stain contains a precise combination of linseed oil for maximum wood grain penetration, oil solids for longevity and organic oils for color depth and water repelling features. Translucent iron oxide pigments are additionally added to warrant UV absorption. Deckwise IPE Oil 100 VOC  allows wood to breathe, which inturn is essential in working with exotic hardwoods such as Tigerwood, Massaranduba, Teak, Brazilian Redwood, and many other wood species. The result following years of development is a hardwood oil finish of unmatched overall performance designed to protect ones exotic wood surfaces, rich with color and dimension.

IPE oil is a penetrating stain

Most deck finish coatings form a film on the surface to offer natural wood color and keep moisture out. Some brands may last just a few months or two before they turn unsightly. Nevertheless many film coatings fail, and also require sanding or stripped before the hard wood can be re-coated.

Ipe Oil® then again, penetrates into the wood grain and defends from within and is not a surface film that will bubble, crack, or peel. Decking and hardwood siding restoration is a simple clean, brighten and re-coat. No major sanding or stripping should be needed. And hardwood which is left to discolor to a silver patina gray after coating, can be effortlessly restored to a gorgeous natural timber look even after many years of weathering.

When deck builders need their customer’s hardwood projects to last 75 years or more and maintain its natural beauty, they turn to Ipe Oil® deck oil. 1 gallon of Ipe Oil® Hardwood Deck Oil covers approximately 250 ft2 and is formulated as an oil-based natural wood finish with a 100 VOC. To say “Made in America” feels so good!

Brush, Roller & Rag Application:

For the best results, utilize a high quality 3/8” nap roller, pad applicator or stain brush. To minimize lapping, maintain a wet edge lengthwise and do not break in the middle of boards. One coat is sufficient for most applications. Always apply oil onto the boards parallel to the grain of the wood. For exterior home furniture hand apply the finish into the hardwood grain simply by using a soft cloth. NOTE: Product not absorbed into the wood within 30-45 minutes must be thoroughly removed.

Spray Application:

When spraying, back brush or roll to prevent sags and runs. Cover surrounding areas to protect from over spray. For airless spray, use .015” to .019” tip size for best results. NOTE: Product not absorbed into the wood within 30-45 minutes must be thoroughly removed.

Wipe Off Excess:

Depending on temperature and direct sunlight verses shade, soak time may need adjusted. It is essential to wipe excess oil completely and attention paid to pooling after application. Continue to wipe excess oil until no surface sheen or leeching is noticeable. Wood surface must NOT look wet and will have a matte finish.


Clean and brighten hardwoods at least once a year with Deck & Wood Cleaner Part 1 and Deck & Wood Brightener Part 2 or use the Woodrich Deck Maintenance Kit with all the products and tools needed in one handy package. Apply Ipe Oil® for Hardwood Decks every one to two years in most applications for desired natural hardwood color.

IPE oil vs Messmer’s Hardwood stain

    Deckwise IPE Oil 100 VOC stain – A well-maintained hardwood surface is what makes an outdoor living space inviting. Whether you have hardwood decking or hardwood siding, you want the elegance of the natural wood to shine through. Ipe Oil features a low 100 VOC formula for hardwood decks, siding, patios and outdoor furniture that produces a deep natural hardwood finish. It provides excellent penetration with minimal rising of the wood grain. It nourishes wood from within and provides advanced level defenses from the damaging effects of UV rays, water intrusion and drastic weather changes.
     Ipe Oil hardwood stain finish includes a distinct blend of natural oils for maximum wood grain penetration. It uses a semi-transparent tint for UV protection while allowing hardwoods to breathe. This is essential when protecting exotic hardwoods from south America as well as thermally modified north America wood specie. Many traditional wood finishes are a surface film finish which can crack, peel or bubble.
     Other wood oils include a lacquer, which will not allow the hardwood to breathe. When refinishing hardwoods, these types of lacquer products have an opaque milky surface which does not allow a fresh coat to soak down into the wood. That means, many times complete stripping and sanding is needed. But not with Ipe Oil,  which contains no lacquer.   As an oil-based natural hardwood finish, it utilizes a low 100 VOC formula. Soak times may vary depending on ambient sun and weather temperatures. Always thoroughly and completely wipe away all excess Oil from the hardwood surface to prevent tackiness.

Benefits of IPE Exotic Decking

Ipe decking, also known as Brazilian Walnut, has a number of qualities that make it stand out as the superior outdoor construction material.

All Natural

Unlike composite decking, which is a combination of wood pulp and plastic, a non-recyclable material that pollutes our planet and pressure treated or reclaimed lumber that is loaded with toxic chemicals known to harm surrounding plant and animal life, Ipe is 100% natural. It is ideal for repurposing, bio-degradable and does not create any biproducts that can harm the environment. No chemicals or plastics whatsoever, just 100% real wood. That’s why we say, “Go Natural!”


Ipe is among the 10 hardest woods in the world with a Janka Hardness rating of 3,680; compare that to Oak, at about 1,200. Many compare Ipe’s hardness and density to concrete. This extreme hardness lends to its dimensional stability, long lifespan, and natural weatherproof properties. Pressure treated wood is known for substantial expansion and contraction with seasonal changes. This process destroys the cell structures from the center of the boards, outwards. It also increases the rate of decay. This movement is also responsible for creating raised wood grain that can be painful to walk on without shoes.

Raised grain is a common problem with pressure treated woods but does not occur with tropical hardwoods like Ipe. Composite and plastic decking will also expand and contract significantly over time which compromises the rigidity. This eventually leads to boards drooping between the joists. Ipe, being so hard, will expand and contract some, but very little. Minimal movement is one key element to Ipe’s incredible longevity.


Ipe is renowned for its ability to last many decades even in extreme weather conditions. Density and hardness, as discussed above, plays a large role in that. Natural resistance to water penetration and rot/decay also contributes to its longevity. The forests, from which they evolved, experience 100-400 inches of rain per year. That is up to 8-10 times more than anywhere in the United States. Evolutionary responses to this heavy rainfall have made this wood naturally resistant to water penetration, mold, rot and decay.

Deckwise Ipe Oil vs Penofin Board Replacement

Many people fail to consider how board replacement can be a HUGE obstacle with alternative deck materials like PT or composite. Let’s say you drop the hot contents of a grill on your deck and it damages the boards beyond repair. Unfortunately, if you don’t have an Ipe or tropical hardwood deck, you’re in for a rude awakening.

When you replace a PT or cedar board it will stand out from the others, dramatically. These materials are all very consistent and continue fading over time. So, the new boards will ALWAYS stand out from the others. You are left with a deck that has very obvious patchwork.

Tropical hardwoods vary from board to board, so replacing boards is no big deal. They may stand out from the others for a couple of months, but before long no one will be able to tell the new boards from the original ones. This benefit is specific to real, natural woods. Board replacement is also a common problem with prefinished and engineered wood flooring.

Insect Resistance

Ipe, and other tropical hardwoods, are naturally insect resistant. Domestic lumber is treated with chemicals to deter wood boring insects. Ipe evolved in forests with insects much more proficient at wood-boring than their North American counterparts. Very few insects in their natural habitat are capable of infiltrating their tough wood fibers and certainly, the domestic insects of the United States are no match. This is true for most tropical hardwoods.

Fire Resistance

For many states in southwestern United States, fires are a large factor driving construction material decision making. This also holds true for large commercial projects in urban areas. Ipe is the most flame-resistant decking material, hands down. Ipe is one of the only materials, aside from steel and concrete, that regularly receives an A Class rating from engineering rating organizations. Plastic, composite and pressure treated lumber typically receive the lowest flame spread ratings C Class.

Watch Matt Risinger’s YouTube video demonstrating Ipe’s incredible resistance to fire.

Forest Stewardship

Ipe is sourced from the tropical forests of South America, Brazil in particular. Concerns with harvesting Ipe from the “lungs of our planet” are well warranted. The truth is, Brazil’s hardwood timber industry may be the forests best protection from clear-cut uses like Cattle and Agriculture. When Ipe is harvested and regrown in its natural habitat, that habitat is protected by both he organization that replanted and the local or federal government.

Without responsible forestry management, forest lands are more likely to be cleared for grazing cattle and planting crops. Each purchase of Ipe, or other tropical hardwood, from conscientious hardwood dealers like Brazilian Wood Depot contributes to the value of naturally forested lands.


Contrary to popular belief, Ipe is not more expensive than the alternatives. The opposite, in fact. Pressure treated lumber is considered to last about 5-7 years before boards begin to deteriorate and rot. Plastic and composite boards will typically begin to fade and deteriorate within a few years. A composite deck is unattractive and nearly unusable after about 8 years.

Ipe is known to last from 40- 75 years, depending on the environmental conditions. When you consider the cost of replacing pressure treated or composite boards through the life of just one installation of Ipe, Ipe is far, far more cost effective.

The front-end cost of Ipe decking is generally the same as the mid-grade composites and lower than the high-end composites. Pressure treated lumber is cheaper than Ipe, but you’ll replace the PT boards 5 times in the life of one Ipe deck. So, is Ipe the most cost-effective decking? Yes, often in the short-term, but always in the long-term.
