    Penofin is a great product but they have lots of different mixes. I have an ipe deck on a current job that will get the Penofin Hardwood Formula.

    You can read through the website but I found that too confusing. I like calling the tech department of companies and tell them the type of wood and what you are looking to do.

      On Ipe it takes a long time to soak in, my painter recommends pre-staining the boards, and letting them sit, then re-staining them in place, then hitting them again within 6 mos. to a year.

      They'll be oily for a while even after you wipe them off.

      But it is a very good finish.
