Which Wood Stain Should I Use?
Which wood stain should I use

At Protek our products are basically separated in to two categories.

 

1. Wood Preserver to preserve and protect timber against rot and fungi
2. Wood Stains that colour and create a waterproof coating to protect against the elements

 

We do not include preservative chemicals in all of our 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.

 

Which Wood Stain to Use and Why?

Wood Preserver should be used for preserving timber and the only product we recommend for decking is Decking Stain.
