Olympic Maximum Stain + Sealant in One Stain Scores (1-10)
Appearance After Initial Stain Application: 6
– Olympic Elite Stain is an oil based stain + sealer in one. We used the Chestnut Brown color. The appearance of the final stain finish was a brown color that did not seem to enhance the beauty of the wood as well as we had expected. However, the Olympic Elite Wood Stain did penetrate the wood fairly well and did not form a film on top.
Preventing UV Graying at 2 Year Mark: 7
–At the 2-year test mark Olympic Elite Woodland Oil did hold up pretty decent with an estimated 70% color retention. Some fading and graying was noticed in traffic areas.
