What is UV Plus for Hardwood Decks?

UV Plus for Hardwood Decks is a penetrating wood deck stain and oil finish that beautifies and protects exterior wood, providing a natural appearance.  UV Plus for Hardwood Decks contains fungicides and UV absorbers of the highest quality. It does not form a surface film when properly applied and is not subject to peeling and flaking. To recoat, just clean the wood surface and reapply UV Plus for Hardwood Decks. No stripping or sanding is necessary. The product may be used on nearly any exterior hardwood surface including decks, vertical surfaces, and trim.  For use on wood substrates only.

How long does UV Plus for Hardwoods last?

On hardwood decks, UV Plus can be expected to last for 1-2 years. The time element will vary depending on conditions such as sunlight, weather and direction of exposure.

Clear finish?

Clears with no pigmentation do not offer UV protection or color retention. Our products contain Transparent Iron Oxide pigments which absorb UV radiation while allowing visible light to pass through. This results in a finish that highlights the natural beauty of the wood while still protecting it.

Messmer’s UV Plus for Hardwoods can be applied over another stain

  • Provided the previous finish has sufficiently weathered to allow penetration of UV Plus for Hardwood Decks.
  • Before application, clean the surface with a Wood & Deck Cleaner or sand to a new surface.

While UV Plus for Hardwood Decks bead water

  • This means that waxes are added for the appearance of water beading. These additives do not last very long and are not good permanent water repellents, in addition to this they interfere with adhesion should you decide to paint over the stain. That’s why we don’t use them in our products.
  • Messmer’s UV Plus for Hardwood Decks fills the pores of the wood, providing excellent water repellency that will last.

Wait 24-48 hours if rain is expected

  • Hardwood Decks need at least 24-48 hours to dry in good conditions before staining.
  • Rain can force the stain up out of the pores of the wood, leaving a blotchy appearance.

Messmer’s UV Plus for Hardwood Decks suitable for vertical surfaces

  • Excellent choice for almost any exterior hardwood surface, including vertical surfaces.
  • Make sure the surface is clean, dry, and any previous coatings have either weathered away or been removed.
  • Do not use UV Plus for Hardwood Decks over paints or other film-forming coatings, it’s designed to penetrate into bare or weathered wood surfaces.

Should I put multiple coats of Messmer’s Hardwood stain

  • No. The only way to get a shiny surface on the wood is by using a multiple-coat, film-forming finish. We don’t recommend clear film-forming finishes on decks because they are slippery when wet, they will eventually peel, and they are difficult to maintain and recoat. When properly applied, a penetrating finish like UV Plus for Hardwood Decks will not be shiny, it will have a natural, matte look.
