Sansin ENS is marketed under the name Ardera for specific international markets. Sansin Ardera is virtually identical to, and fully interchangeable/compatible with Sansin ENS. In short, the difference is imperceptible, and the performance is identical.
We have found ourselves with some stock branded under the Ardera name, which we are offering at a very attractive 25% off to clear.

Sansin Ardera is an environmentally-friendly highly durable two-coat wood finish, designed for exterior vertical surfaces, siding, timber, furniture, windows and doors.
It is exceptionally UV resistant, washable, low in VOC’s, and non-flammable with easy soap and water clean-up.
Sansin Ardera provides a rich and attractive coating with exception durability and weather protection.
Ardera is compatible with surfaces pre-treated using SDF or Classic. Ardera offers excellent adhesion characteristics and can be applied over many water-based or alkyd products to enhance protection and beauty.
For increased protection use SDF or Classic for the first coat to ensure penetrating protection.
For over 25 years Sansin has pioneered the use of environmentally friendly water-borne wood protection technologies that deliver outstanding performance. With a wide range of wood preparation and protection products, Sansin offers solutions for external and internal applications, designed to enhance the natural beauty of your wood.
Why choose between an oil or water-based solution when you can have the benefits of both?
Sansin Enviro Stains combines the two, carrying natural oils and resins deep in the wood's cell structure using water.
As the water evaporates, Sansin bonds directly with the wood substrate, forming a tough, durable barrier that won't crack, peel or blister.
Sansin Enviro Stains let the natural personality of your wood shine through. With over 80 colour tones, you can be sure of finding the colour to suit your every project.
For inspiration, Sansin turned to the everyday miracles of the natural world.
And should you have a colour in mind that isn't available in our collection, our Precision Coat mixing service lets you bring it to life.
Several companies can claim to be 'green' and friendly to the environment, but Sansin truly lives and breathes their environmental practices, as important now as when Sansin first pioneered the water-based alkyd solution over 25 years ago.
Natural by design
Sansin's technology is inspired by a thousand-year-old tradition that uses nature's own ingredients - resins and gums from the heartwood of trees - to deliver sustainable protection.
Low VOC Content
New legislation about Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) content in coatings has forced a wide range of companies to change their formulas to fit within the 152 gram per litre regulations. Caring about the environment from the outset means Sansin's original formulas are as low as 32 grams per litre, meaning it is as safe to use as it always has been.
No harmful ingredients
Paraffin wax is often used in many water and solvent-based coatings to protect against moisture damage, however, this surface layer can be easily eroded by exposure to UV radiation. In fact, just 5 hours of direct sunlight can reduce water repellency by over 60%* Sansin coatings use no paraffin and contain modified natural oils and resins, impregnated with special UV protectants - so every cell of your wood is protected.

Focus on responsibility
Sansin strives to minimise waste and ensure responsible handling of waste products. A unique rinse water recycling system allows products of cleaning processes to capture and reuse raw materials otherwise waster. Regular facility improvements and operating initiatives such as the Sansin Second Nature programme focus on energy savings, waste reduction and recycling.
Wood is Sansin's passion and their commitment to protecting it and the environment is paramount. Sansin's vision is to continually improve its products alongside their environmental practices, as part of Sansin's Second Nature programme. Sansin is pursuing initiatives such as using alternative green energy, smart car technology, and smart manufacturing processes, moving closer to the objective of operating a sustainable zero waste production facility.
