Looking for a Water based clear UV stain

mrpurpleJune 15, 2009

Just finished my Cumaru deck. I'm looking for a water based clear UV stain.

Can someone recommend a good product? We need a super low (or zero) VOC formula.

Thanks!

There is no clear outdoor finish that has uv protection. J.

When you find that let us all know what it is & how it worked. Good luck.

"Clear stain" is an oxymoron. I think you might have better luck searching for a "natural stain" which has the lowest level of pigment added, if any at all...

Now for your deck project, a narural color stain whether oil or water base will offer little protection from UV...if any at all.
