SEAL-ONCE® has been leading the innovation in the use of nano-particle technology to create long-lasting, Eco-friendly wood sealers & tinted wood stains since 2005.  Our EXOTIC Waterproofing Wood Sealer & Stain is water-based, ultra-low VOC & engineered to penetrate dense Brazilian hardwoods like Ipe, Teak & Mahogany.  Tropical wood species are denser than North American hardwoods & EXOTIC deck sealer has been specifically engineered to protect & preserve exotic wood finishes.

Unlike most top-coat sealers on the market today, SEAL-ONCE penetrates deep below the surface to form a long-lasting water-resistant shield around the wood fibers.  The added POLY in EXOTIC creates a surface coating for superior abrasion resistance in high-traffic areas that make it a great choice for protecting Ipe wood decks.  It is non-yellowing & the clear formula will not alter the natural beauty of tropical woods.  Exotic deck stain has UV blockers to help prevent wood from fading & the tinted formulas provide additional protection from the sun on Ipe decking, siding & walkways.

EXOTIC has none of the toxic chemicals common in oil & solvent based wood sealers & stains, so it can be applied safely around homes, landscaping & vegetation.  SEAL-ONCE is warranted to prevent long-standing water accumulation for up to 10 years on horizontal & 6 years on vertical surfaces.

Product Details

  • Remove all old coatings, dust, debris and loose material. Remove oil, grease, algae, grime, mill glaze and mold and mildew stains with appropriate cleaners.
  • Test absorbency after cleaning by sprinkling water on surface. If the water does not readily penetrate the surface, stripping will be necessary to remove old coatings.

Surfaces that have been treated with SEAL-ONCE EXOTIC Premium Wood Sealer can be cleaned using a mixture of 1-gallon warm water, 14 oz. bleach, and 1 oz. of Dawn® dish detergent. Apply this cleaning solution with a sprayer and allow to sit for 20 to 30 minutes on the wood surface before rinsing with water using a garden hose with a nozzle.

This cleaning solution can be used to remove airborne mold and mildew stains, dirt and grime from the wood surface. SEAL-ONCE EXOTIC will prevent and resist any water, mold and mildew penetration. Do not use oxidizers, corrosives, or strippers on surfaces that have been treated with SEAL-ONCE EXOTIC.

Surfaces can be recoated with SEAL-ONCE EXOTIC at any time. SEAL-ONCE EXOTIC may need to be reapplied for fading tint color, surface damage, in heavily worn or high traffic areas, or in places where the surface may have undergone noticeable changes.

Before reapplying SEAL-ONCE EXOTIC, clean the surface using the recommended cleaning solution above. Apply SEAL-ONCE EXOTIC according to package instructions. When reapplying in small areas, lightly overlap onto areas previously treated with SEAL-ONCE EXOTIC.
