Wood Sealer Waterproof

Wood waterproofing has always been a challenge for most of the people. This is not only because of the fact that there are not many wood sealers available in the market but also because wood is a surface that cannot handle the chemicals that are contained in most of the traditional sealers that are available in the market. Also since people do not want their wooden surfaces to change in their color or texture, they generally look out for clear coat sealers, something that is far more difficult and time consuming. This is the reason why we are going to look at a few wood sealer waterproof agents which we believe are the best in the industry.

Ames’ Super Elasto-Barrier

Ames’ Super Elasto-Barrier is a dual rubber coating sealer that is water based and can be used for the purpose of waterproofing wooden surfaces that are exposed to a lot of abrasive activity (wooden floors, decks, etc.). This sealer has excellent adhesive properties and hence it can be used on even vertical surfaces. The sealer is easy to apply and use and can be stretched to almost 1000% percent of its original while in use.

The big thing about this sealer is that it has been formulated to withstand cold weather and is resistant to the growth of fungus, mold and even mildew.

Epoxy Silane & Siloxane Penetrating Sealer

Not many penetrating sealers are available for wooden surfaces, but this one is designed with a view to penetrate and protect wooden surfaces from the inside. The sealer is basically a blend of silanes and siloxanes and provides excellent protection against constant freeze thaw cycles and wet or dry climates. The silane component inside the sealer acts as a hydrophobic agent that helps in keeping the water away from the surface that has been protected. Some advantages associated with the use of this sealer include the following.

  • It is a single component sealer and comes in a ready to use form.
  • The sealer is environmentally safe in nature.
  • It can be used to protect concrete and masonry apart from wood.
  • The sealer also helps in preventing chlorine intrusion.
  • It acts on the surface without changing the natural appearance of the surface.

Polyfix Wood Seal

Polyfix Wood Seal is marketed as the fastest and the strongest sealant that can be used to seal the holes in wood and wooden surfaces. The sealer has the ability to prevent cracking, shrinking, sinking or falling out of the wood surface on which it has been applied. Unlike many other water based sealers, this sealer has not detrimental effect on the surface on which it has been used.

The sealer can also be stained with a color pack to give the desired color. Also since the sealer is non-flammable it helps in making the wooden surface somewhat fire retardant.
These are some of the wood sealer waterproof agents that are currently being used by most of the people. Wood sealers are a great way of protecting wooden surfaces from water damage and are a great means of ensuring the long life of wooden surfaces.
