How does Eco-Safe Wood Treatment™ work?
Eco-Safe Wood Treatment™ penetrates into wood fibers, reacts with the natural tannins in the wood, and rids the wood of natural sugars that cause wood decay, permanently changing the wood structure at a molecular level for a preservative, protectant, and stain that will never fade, flake, or peel away. In other words this stain is integral, not superficial.
How often do I need to apply Eco-Safe Wood Treatment™?
One easy application penetrates wood forever, with no flaking off, no scraping, and no reapplications needed. The product extends the lifetime of the wood.
What color stain does Eco-Safe Wood Treatment™ give the wood?
Darkening and silvering of treated wood is the beautiful result of this unique product. Different wood species will respond with slightly different final colors, ranging from light or dark silvery gray to light or dark silvery brown. The color of Eco-Safe™ treated wood will continue to evolve over time. The product provides a silver to brown patina depending on wood type, with a soft sheen that instantly imparts an elegant, aged finish.
This stain is ideal for artificially aging wood, to weather or beautify, or match repairs to older wood.
What is the drying time?
Typical dry time can be as little as 1-2 hours if ambient humidity is low and temperature is high. 6-8 hours is safe.
Does Eco-Safe Wood Treatment™ seal wood?
Please note that this product is not a traditional "sealer" because it does not create a moisture-proof barrier. These types of products usually contain stabilizers and carriers that are inevitably toxic and contain petroleum products and VOCs. Our product penetrates the wood, bonds permanently with the wood fibers, does not need reapplication, and provides long-lasting preventative treatment against rot. It does leave the wood grain open, allowing the wood to breathe, water to penetrate and subsequently evaporate out, and provides a truly beautiful, natural look that will not flake away over time like traditional sealers.
