NANO Penetrating Wood Sealer

4.60 out of 5 based on 5 customer ratings
(5 customer reviews)

SEAL-ONCE® NANO Penetrating Wood Sealer deeply penetrates the surface to protect and stabilize wood against water damage and decay. This water based formula uses proprietary nanotechnology to create a long-lasting, flexible, breathable barrier by coating the wood fibers at the cellular level. This provides protection from the inside out.

SEAL-ONCE NANO is ideal for use on unfinished interior and exterior wood surfaces. The clear, non-film forming formula allows the wood to age naturally without decay, morphing to a rich silver-gray over time. SEAL-ONCE NANO can also be mixed with a full range of Semi-Transparent Tints to enhance the appearance and provide additional UV protection.

When using SEAL-ONCE NANO as a pre-stain or sanding sealer, the clear formula allows for a smoother finish, more even color and easier application of water and solvent based stains and finishes. It also enhances the natural grain of the wood.

Recommended Use:
Cedar Shingles  Wood Siding  Exposed Beams  Fences  Planters  Outdoor Furniture  Play Structures  Plywood  Pressure Treated Wood  Architectural Millwork Woodworking Window and Door Trim (interior and exterior) Wood Flooring

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 NANO 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 NANO.
  • Surfaces can be recoated with SEAL-ONCE NANO at any time. SEAL-ONCE NANO 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 NANO, clean the surface using the recommended cleaning solution above. Apply SEAL-ONCE NANO according to package instructions. When reapplying in small areas, lightly overlap onto areas previously treated with SEAL-ONCE NANO.
