staining trex decking

has anyone had any experience staining trex decking and any recommended products? i am thinking of staining our entire 5 year old deck which has trex decking and PT posts rails and trex stiles and top cap to refresh it . i see there is a Cabot ?:" australian timber oil stain" which states it can be use for composite as well as PT. is this a bad idea or other products that might be better? thanks john

Wow - I thought the whole attraction of trex was that it was maintenance free! ! !

Trex never has to be painted or stained. Trex says that faded products can be painted or stained. Cabot's products are good. Trex does not advise pressure washing.

What about this?

Messmer's Composite Deck Finish, looks like it's made just for what you want to do?
