We’ve spent years perfecting our long-lasting wood finishes. So then why do they have millions of tiny holes in them? We know, just the mere mention of holes around a boat is enough to send a shiver down any old salt’s spine. Still, holes happen to have a very useful place topside. Here’s why: because wood is porous, it holds moisture. And typical wood finishes trap moisture resulting in surfaces that can crack and flake. Pretty unsightly stuff. To fix the problem, our Sikkens chemists designed a wood finish with millions of tiny holes, or pores, in it. So moisture can escape. Which means a much longer lasting finish. They also made sure the application process was fast and easy. After all, who needs to spend time painting when you can be out boating? But that’s just part of the story. Cetol® was also designed to bring out the natural beauty and characteristics of your wood while protecting it from damaging UV rays – rays that can potentially cause color degradation. Just a few coats promise solid protection all season long. Hardly the same story a typical wood finish would tell. Cetol is also flexible. Which is kind of a big deal when you consider that wood constantly expands and contracts. Again, fewer chances of flaking or cracking. And there are four different colors to choose from including our new color Cetol Marine Natural Teak with Next Wave™Technology. Imagine, a long-lasting wood-finishing product that’s a cinch to apply. It’s kind of a wood-finishing breakthrough.
