Moreover, is oil or water based deck stain better?
The better a wood decking stain penetrates the better it performs and lasts. By nature, oil based deck stains are easier to apply than water based . Oils stains are normally more natural looking than water based stains . They enhance the beauty of the wood by allowing more of the wood grain to show through.
Additionally, how can you tell if polyurethane is oil or water based? Gather together a cotton ball, and a little rubbing alcohol. Dampen the cotton ball with the alcohol, and begin to wipe it along the woodwork. If , after the alcohol has dried, the woodstain is a little lighter in color, then you know that the stain is water based . Oil based stains really don't react to alcohol at all.
In respect to this, is Sikkens and Sico the same?
Sico , now based in Longueuil, Que., is already an exclusive distributor in Eastern Canada for selected Akzo Nobel products, such as its Sikkens line of protective wood coatings. Sico is also in the industrial coatings business, but it is small compared with its core paint-making division.
Can I put oil based deck stain over water based?
It's OK to use oil - based stain over water - based as long as you clean and prepare the existing surface well.
