hello, Everyone. i just joined-my first question. i am going to use Flood's Oil Clear wood finish on my deck and my only concern is off gassing. My wife has a sometimes burdensome (even for her), sense of smell so I wonder have any of you used this and had any problem with the smell as it cured? At least any beyond what one would expect as an oil product dried?

Is this the waterborne CWF or the old oil base version? or another product completely?
While CWF can have a strong odor it dissipates fairly fast as long as it's not in an enclosed area. I would think if she stayed inside or away from that part of the yard it wouldn't be an issue.

Thanks. It's the oil based though the Flood people pointed out that the other formula is actually a latex/alkyd mix also but the oil formula has penetrol to help it step in just a bit easier.

I didn't know if they still sold the oil base version, I haven't used any in over 25 yrs. Not sure if anyone sells it locally. The waterborne version is supposed to have better UV protection.
