What Protector should we use?

 

Our products are all Wood Stains that colour and create a waterproof coating to protect against the elements.

We do not include preservative chemicals in any of our Protek products as a lot of timber comes pre-treated. By separating out the preservative process it means we are not using chemicals unnecessarily thus giving the environment another helping hand.

After using our products, brushes can be cleaned just using water – no white spirit needed.
