    What is Cool Touch Technology?

    Restore 2X with Cool Touch Technology reflects the sun’s rays to reduce the surface temperature up to 15º F compared with traditional solid stains of a similar color.  Temperature reduction will vary based on the ambient temperature, time of day, and the amount of direct sunlight on the surface.

    It is 100 degrees outside and my deck is very hot, I thought it was supposed to be cool?

    The surface temperature of the deck tends to be much warmer than the air temperature outside.  So if it is 100 degrees outside the surface temperature of a typical dark stained deck may possibly be 120 degrees.  The cool touch deck would be up to 15 degrees cooler than the solid stain of a similar color and therefore the surface may be 105 degrees.

    Does Restore 2X Solid Stain with Cool Touch Technology fill voids in the wood and concrete?

    No.  Restore 2X Solid Stain with Cool Touch Technology is meant for newer wood and concrete surfaces.  While thick enough to cover your surface in one coat, it is not thick enough to fill cracks and voids.  Cracks should be filled using the Restore Crack Filler prior to application.
