Premium protection, with the look of naturally-weathered driftwood
This 0-VOC water-borne penetrating sealer aggressively repels water while allowing wood to breathe. Over time, the wood will grey naturally to a driftwood tone from exposure to the sun - while retaining its water-repellency to protect against weathering and wood rot.
In fact, Sansin Wood-Sealer easily surpasses the ASTM 4446, the standard industry benchmark for water repellency. Test results show that, on average, one application of Sansin Wood-Sealer reduces water absorption by 84% and swelling by 72%.
Sansin Wood-Sealer dries clear and will not peel and can be used for interiors as well as exteriors. A 3-year limited warranty on Sansin Wood-Sealer is available on projects where it has been applied to properly prepared surfaces as per directions for use. Wood-Sealer is ideal for log homes, decks, fences, wood shingles, gazebos, yard furniture and wood siding.
One question we're often asked is whether you should use a water based or oil based coating when protecting wood surfaces. With Sansin Enviro Stains, you can have the best of both worlds.
Enhanced durability and moisture control
Sansin lets wood 'breathe' more freely, dramatically improving dimensional stability and allowing wood to adjust naturally to moisture levels in the environment. Once it bonds with your wood, Sansin forms a long-lasting shield that aggressively repels condensed water while allowing water vapour to escape.
Protection from UV radiation
As well, the paraffin waxes used to protect against water in many water and solvent-based coatings are easily damaged by exposure to UV radiation - just 5 hours of direct sunlight can reduce water repellancy by over 60%. Like your own skin, your home needs dependable UV protection. Sansin's modified natural oils and resins are impregnated with special UV protectants so every exposed cell of your wood is protected. Because of their unique formulation, Sansin Enviro Stains also protect naturally against wood decay.
Sansin Enviro Stains are designed to keep your wood healthy, just as Mother Nature intended. Whether it's your home, your deck or your furniture, Sansin provides the long-lasting, beautiful protection your home deserves.
Every wood coating needs to be maintained - it's just easier with Sansin.
Where successive film-build coatings can darken and peel, Sansin is design to wear gently over time. Keeping your home protected involves only a simple cleaning and maintenance coat, applied as needed.
