I use Sikkens on everything but ipe. It does not last long and recoats are a lot of work. You have to strip versus applying a maintenence coat.

Never had a problem with Penofin turing black on ipe.

I'd try the Cabot's if I could not get Penofin.

Sikkens imho is not the best product for ipe.

It is Mahogany. I understand a covered deck will last longer than an exposed. I am happy with the product described above on Mahogany.

Do you mind taking pictures of the steps - they're not covered by a roof, I am interested how they held up?

I am actually working nearby this week. It is a customer who summers here but live in Switzerland the rest of the year so I can swing by and take a peek.
