MAINTAINING THE GOLDEN BROWN COLOR OF TEAK
Our teak protector maintains the original, golden-brown colour of teak for a long time: up to 4 times longer than teak-oil and up to twice as long as teak sealers.

Why is it so much better than teak-oil/sealer:

It maintains the light-brown colour of teak for longer
Gives a nicer, more natural colour after application (teak-oil makes teak often look too dark-brown, teak sealers make teak often look too orange).
Teak-oil often causes black spots on teak. Our protector prevents black spots.
Our teak protector is not an oil and it is not greasy, so clothes stay clean.
Most teak-oils/sealers contain hazardous solvents/voc's. Our protector is water-based and solvent-free: that is why we call it ecosafe.

Fast and easy to apply.

What is Teak Protector?

Teak Protector is a modern treatment for teak that is easy to apply and lasts a long time. The treatment protects your teak and helps teak look great because it helps teak retain the natural warm colour of teak. Teak Protector doesnt let your teak turn black or grey and lasts the entire season. Plus it provides 100% protection from the sun.

How is Teak Protector different from normal teak-oil or teak sealer?

Nearly all teak that is treated with normal teak-oil, turns grey in 4 to 8 weeks. After that, the teak needs to be cleaned and oil reapplied. Three or four treatments may be needed to maintain the teak for an entire season, which can be a lot of work. Teak Protector is not an organic product and therefore lasts much, much longer. Teak Protector just brings out the colour of natural, clean teak and maintains it for a long, long time. Most teak sealers contain flammable ingredients that are dangerous for the environment. Soon it will be forbidden in Europe to stock and transport these types of sealers with wood due to the inherent fire hazard. Since Teak Protector is 100% water-based it is naturally non-flammable and completely environment- friendly.

How is Teak Protector different from varnish or coatings?

Surface coatings such as a varnish, do not last forever. Water eventually penetrates the coating, causing cracking and/or peeling. Coatings must be sanded to remove them, which makes maintenance burdensome. Also, teak garden furniture with shiny coatings on the teak doesnt look natural. Since Teak Protector penetrates into the pores of the teak, it becomes almost invisible: treated and protected teak looks as good as new natural teak.

How does Teak Protector make my life easier?

Teak Protector makes life easier because it preserves teak furniture, is easy to apply, and lasts much longer than ordinary teak sealers or teak-oils. Since Teak Protector penetrates into the teak in less than an hour, your clothes stay clean when sitting on your teak furniture, unlike oil products that may puddle and get on clothes.

How long does Teak Protector last?

Teak Protector generally lasts for the entire season without turning black or grey. The duration depends upon factors such as exposure to the sun, humidity, rain, the age of the teak, and some other factors. Teak Protector is water-based.

Does this mean that this product will dry very slowly?

Although Teak Protector is water-based it dries quickly. This means that furniture can be used within a few hours.

Does the Teak Protector affect pavement and/or grass and plants?

Teak Protector may affect grass, plants and some types of pavements. We recommend covering the work area with a disposable piece of plastic.

What will happen if you put a paste wax after treating teak with Protector?

When Teak Protector is completely dry, it will not react with water- based waxes. Only when solvents are present in the wax (e.g. acetone) some weakening and dissolving may occur.

I understand that Teak Protector provides protection against Teak discolouration, however does it seal the wood and/or provide protection against water stains, food stains, oil stains etc.?

Teak Protector seals the wood and provides some protection, but not in such a way that on the long term food or oil are unable to penetrate. This type of protection requires the use of Teak Shield.

Does Teak Protector alter the color of new Teak after application?

Unlike oils and sealers, Teak Protector hardly changes the colour of the teak after application. Teak-oils and/or sealers typically change the colour of teak to a darker brown or reddish orange tint. Teak Protector reinforces the golden/honey color and gives a beautiful end-result.

If you do not recommend a spray or sponge application, what is the preferred way to apply Teak Protector?

We recommend using a dust free cloth to apply a thin layer. Using a sponge or spray may result in overuse of the Protector which could result in slight cracking and/or blistering.

If I used Teak Protector and decide that I do not like it, how can I remove it?

The best way to completely remove Teak Protector is to completely sandpaper the teak, which can be rather time-consuming. We recommend using Teak Protector on a small area first such as the back of a leg to judge if the treatment meets your expectations.

Does Teak Protector react with teak-oils and/or Sealers?

To use Teak Protector on oil-treated wood, it should first be cleaned with Teak Cleaner. Teak Protector should never be applied directly to oiled teak, because it will "react" with the oil. This can result in severe discoloration.

Can I apply Teak Protector when theres sawdust from sanding on my teak?

You can, but it can leave the surface a bit rough resulting in a less appealing finish. We recommend removing the sawdust with a dry, rough cleaning sponge prior to treatment with Teak Protector.

Why does teak sometimes turns black or dark grey?

The black spots on teak are commonly mistaken for dirt getting stuck in the wood. However, the black spots on teak are actually mould and mildew which are growing in the wood and teak oil which was baked by the sun. Teak Cleaner will remove any mould and mildew that may have accumulated. However, if teak-oil is used again the problem is likely to reoccur as the mould and mildew will have food again! Teak becomes gray because of Ultra-Violet rays from the sun. This process can be prevented by treating teak with Teak Protector, which contains unique, expensive UV absorbers and reflectors.

Does Teak Protector affect aluminum, brass or sling parts of the furniture?

Teak Protector does not affect aluminum, brass or sling. However, to keep these materials clean, it is best you prevent contact with Teak Protector. If these parts come in contact with Protector they can be cleaned with water while the Protector is still wet.

Please note: If furniture has been treated / painted, we will repair rather than replace any damage.
