Default Defy Epoxy Fortified Wood Stain anyone used it?

As stated in an earlier post, I love using Sikkens. However, I have now seen 2 decks in which the contractor used Defy Epoxy Fortified Wood Stain. It looks very nice and I was just wondering if anyone has tried it?

I've used it a couple times, never on decks though. Last project we used it on was an entrance overhang to a doctor's office. All roughsawn cedar beams which were sprayed and back brushed 3 coats of the redwood. I have never used sikkens so I cannot compare to that, but it's very thin and tends to look blotchy when wet. It dried nicely after a heavy 3 coats.

I haven't used Defy, but I am hesitant about an "epoxy-fortified" wood coating. Don't epoxies chalk and fade with exterior exposure? It seems like a marketing ploy. I have used Sikkens with great results.

I haven't used it either but I agree that "epoxy fortified" scares me. I only like to use deck stains that I can get back off the wood. I've been called out to too many deck stripping jobs where a hard to remove stain was used and we get the job of removing it. Never makes the homeowner happy to find out that it could have been much less expensive to remove if it was a simple oil based stain.
