Nova USA expands ExoShield Wood Stain lineup


Nova USA’s full-color palate of ExoShield Wood Stains are now available in gallon, quart and half-pint sizes to accommodate nearly any application ranging from large decks and siding to posts, rails and outdoor furniture. 

Specifically-designed to provide long-lasting, superior protection, ExoShield’s entire line of high-quality Platinum, Antique Bronze, Natural, Mahogany, Walnut, and Black Walnut stains can be purchased in all three sizes to enhance the color stability and beauty of virtually any exterior wood product.

“Few competitive wood stains can match ExoShield’s luster and long-term results,” said Steve Getsiv, president and CEO of Nova Wood Products. “This includes the ability to protect against moisture, UV rays, fungus, and mold in even harsh, extreme environments.”

Using a proprietary blend of Tung oil, UV blockers, fungicide, and trans-oxide pigments, ExoShield’s water-resistant, acid-resistant formula is ideal for enhancing wood stability, reducing cracking or warping, delaying graying and protecting against water damage, fungi and harmful UV rays.

In addition, ExoShield applications are extremely cost-effective, costing as little as 16 cents per square foot on tropical hardwoods, according to Nova USA.

Another ExoShield advantage is the ability to mix any of the colors in its palette to create differing stain shades. For instance, users have found that a touch of Black Walnut added to the company’s standard Walnut produces a deep rich medium-brown color with red undertones.

Another great mix is Black Walnut and Mahogany, which have been combined to create a Black Cherry dark Mahogany color.
