Seal Once Exotic

Seal Once Exotic Premium Wood Sealer

SEAL-ONCE® EXOTIC Premium Wood Sealer deeply penetrates the surface to protect and stabilize wood against water damage and decay. This water based formula uses proprietary nanotechnology to penetrate dense tropical hardwoods and coat the wood fibers, while providing added abrasion resistance on the surface.


EXOTIC allows wood to age naturally without decay, and can be used to preserve old or new wood, extending its natural life. It is non-yellowing and will not alter the natural beauty of tropical hardwoods.

EXOTIC preserves the integrity of the wood by inhibiting warping, cupping, rot, decay, mold and mildew growth. EXOTIC forms a flexible breathable barrier that allows the wood to expand and contract and water vapor to escape.

The advanced technology of EXOTIC allows it to penetrate and bond to the cellular structure of the wood, forming a superior barrier below the surface to protect wood from the inside out. EXOTIC goes on milky white and dries clear. It is also available in several semi-transparent tints.

Application Instructions


All surfaces should be cleaned before sealing for best penetration and performance. Remove all old coatings, dust, debris and loose material. Remove oil, grease, algae, grime, mill glaze and mold and mildew stains with appropriate cleaners.

After cleaning, test absorbency of surface by sprinkling a few drops of water on the surface. If the water does not readily penetrate the surface, stripping will be necessary to remove old coatings prior to applying SEAL-ONCE EXOTIC Premium Wood Sealer. Retest surface when dry.


Do not use if air or surface temperature is below 50°F/10°C or above 95°F/35°C.

Do not apply in rain or when rain is expected within 24-48 hours.

DO NOT THIN. Mix well. Stir contents or shake thoroughly prior to use

Test a small area to ensure acceptable appearance and penetration.

Apply first coat with a synthetic brush; pump-up garden sprayer; air-assisted; and/or airless sprayer. Use 15-17 tip and medium to coarse spray pattern. When spraying, always back brush for best results.

Second coat can be applied once first coat has penetrated but is still damp. Second coat must be applied within one hour of applying first coat.

For best results, apply in the shade and out of direct sunlight.

Apply to all surfaces. Apply SEAL ENDS ONCE® to wood ends.

Do not use with other waterproofing products.

Allow 3-4 hours for surface to dry completely before permitting light foot traffic.


Approximate coverage: 250-350 sq. ft./gallon per coat. Actual coverage will vary due to the porosity of the substrate.

Drying Time

Allow approximately 3-4 hours for surface to dry, depending on temperature and humidity, before subjecting to light foot traffic.

Allow 24-48 hours for full cure, depending on temperature and humidity.

When recoating, apply once previous coat has penetrated and surface is damp, not wet. Second coat must be applied within one hour of applying the first coat.

Cleanup & Storage

Clean all application equipment with warm soapy water.

Store above 32°F/0°C to protect from freezing.

Shelf life (unopened): 2 years.

Disposal: soap and water cleanup; no special disposal procedure needed.


Protect adjacent areas from overspray and runoff, including windows and siding. Immediately remove overspray with soap and water.

Avoid breathing in spray. If inhaled, move to fresh air.

Avoid contact with eyes. If splashed into eyes, rinse with clean water for 15 minutes.

If skin irritation occurs, wash area with soap and water.

If accidentally ingested, immediately drink 2 glasses of water and contact a physician. Do not induce vomiting.
