TotalBoat Danish Teak Sealer penetrates, seals, and preserves both hard and soft woods. Protect wood against the elements with this easy-to-use single part coating.
Danish Teak Sealer contains unique anti-fungal biocides that prevent the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew over the course of the wood's natural life. It minimizes graying and staining brought on by extended exposure to UV rays, salt, and humidity.
Two coats will restore and seal the natural beauty of the wood, providing water repelling properties without becoming slippery underfoot.
Allow 20-30 minutes for penetration, then wipe excess.
Two coats are recommended.
Allow 8-12 hours of dry-time between coats.
Scuff-sand between each coat to ensure adhesion.
Clean up afterwards with Mineral Spirits.

We have a 1500sqft Ipe wood deck next to a pool, in full sunlight in New England. It is only a year old and looking to find a new sealer/oil/treatment. Would this product work with Ipe? And will it hold up to the elements? Used Penofin previously and not happy with the durability.
I have used it on my mahogany decks at home and been very happy with results.
You will probably have to reapply yearly
I'm sorry, I am not familiar with Ipe decking. Here in Wisconsin we use the usual treated, cedar, or composite materials for decks. I think it would be worth applying the Danish Teak Sealer to a sample area and monitor it over the course of a year. The most important part of doing that is to follow exactly the preparation and application instructions on the TotalBoat label. The manufacturer always knows best regarding using their product; I always carefully review the instructions and never second-guess what they say.Best of luck with this project!
This product works best on any of the oily hardwoods. It may need a couple quick coats each year to help bead off water and maintain appearance depending on specific conditions, but we have had great experience from this product in your type of application.

how many quarts or gallons do I need to cover a 50 sq ft cockpit
One quart will easily give you two coats, assuming wood in good condition.
One quart should cover about 40-80 sq ft depending on the porosity of the wood.

Can I apply regular teak oil over the Danish teak sealer if I'm not satisfied with the appearance after 2 coats of the sealer?
I would not. Simply use some snappy teak nu and it comes right off.
Yes, BUT you may not end up with a color you like. You may be better off leaving the Danish mature for the season and apply oil next season.
I have done exactly that. Worked fine1 the sealer is just that, aSEALER... The Danish Teak Sealer is also sort of an Oil-Finish. I liked theresults.used for my boats toe rail.
I don't know the answer to that question. I have been happy with the Danish teak sealer.
Never tried it....but why notEd Kucera
I DONT THINK SO, AS THE SEALER MAKES IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE OIL TO PENERATE.

Can I spray this sealer with an HVLP system?
You could probably apply it that way but then you will have to work it witha brush and wipe off any excess or the finish will be very uneven. This islike an oily stain/sealer. By the time you have masked for spraying youwill be much better off just to apply it with a brush in the first place.
Yes, you can spray this product. You should be able to use a 1.4 mm tip for this, and if you do need to thin it more, use Xylene/Xylol.

does the danish teak sealer have a satin or gloss finish? I have a teak patio table that I've refinished in the past and used Gloster teak sealer and liked how it looked.
This is a finish that penetrates into the teak, it's not glossy and will look like natural teak.

How does the product age? Does it look spotty on a reapplication? I used Teak Guard in the past and over the years the deck looked like a patchwork of uneven color.I had to re-sand the deck to get the Teak Guard off. Will this do the same thing?
This is a light oil finish that will absorb into the teak and protect it. When it's time to reapply, wash it well and reapply. If the teak is gray or has stain spots, clean first with Totalboat Teak Cleaner, then apply the Teak Sealer.

This is an oil that is absorbed into the wood and will darken it a bit like it was wet with water. When it needs recoating, it will look dirty and water will not bead up on it. It's easy to clean with the Totalboat Teak cleaner if it looks dull and dirty that water won't clean, then recoat.

What coverage (for either quart or gallon) can be expected? I've got a 38ft cutter with teak decks...
It depends on how much it seeps into the the wood. I would estimate 80 to 100 sq ft per quart.

Can the Danish sealer be used on freshly oiled teak and will the sealer help preserve the finish and color?
I had cleaned all the grey off and after researching the subject found that the best way was to use sealer not oil. I ordered the sealer and it looks amazing. Trying to get at least a couple years out of it. Easy to apply and comes with everything in the box including latex gloves. Hope this helps!
You can put it over Totalboat Teak Oil, but not others.
The quick answer is yes. I let the freshly oiled deck dry for a couple of hours or over night. Then apply the Teak Sealer. I usually use two coats of oil and two coats of sealer. The sealer does preserve the finish and color. I put a new deck down a couple years ago and have reapplied the oil and sealer twice. It continues to look like new.
Is product clear, natural, amber?
Product has an orange tint. Gives clean teak a warm glow. Am a fan of product.
you gotta think of this as a penetrating oil, which is what it is,sort of amber? it really doesn't leave much of a film on the surface. sealer OK, I did better cleaner w/ magic green from depot. best j
The product is slightly amber, almost the same result as any teak oil.
I would say, amber.
Hi,I think your idea of sanding down the teak is a great one! I had thought about it and never seen it done before. What grade of sandpaper did you use? I was wondering about the speed as well since it looks to me that the rubber sealant would melt and spread onto the teak.
I used 120 grit, with a little finish up using 220. I found that my sealant spread, just a little in ares where my teak level has worn down to the level of the sealant. I've seen excessively worn teak where the sealant stood quite far above the wood. In such cases it seems like you might be able to trim the sealant first with a razor, however, I have no expirience with this. I might add that I've had excellent results with the TotalBoat Danish Teak Sealer. Application is easy/forgiving, appearance is excellent, the finish lasts a season up north where I live and is easy to recoat the following season.
I did not sand my teak. Rather used the two step Semco product to remove years of dirt. It took time but well worth it. I then sealed with Danish Teak Sealer. I used two coats of this. The end result is a rich, not dark, teak which in fact matched a new piece I got from the same teak company.Just be prepared for a fair amount of work and great results. Roberta Simonton
Sorry-I can't help since I haven't used it yet!!
Seems to be a good choice for teak.
Easy to apply, attractive appearance. I used 2 coats over bare teak. The critical test would be the longevity. Considering the fact that it is easy to reapply I would be satisfied if the finish remains in acceptable condition for at least 6 months. The boat is located in Florida and is stored mostly under protective cover. I would prefer to buy smaller quantative, may be 8 oz. The boat does not have a lot of teak so the shelf life will not make it possible to use the full can. Let's save the environment.

Results were beautiful! Easy to apply, wipe down and clean up. Will definitely use again (and again).
i'm buying this product a second time as need more to finish
it's been a long process but i have one chair and the table done. i wish i would have known there is a comparable product that is water base that your review says is even better than this one. i use a small rag to apply this as the sponge applicator just puts too much product on the chair at one time. the rag lets me control the application better. i can't say what i think of this product until i see how long it lasts. my furniture is 20 years old and is very dry. so far so good.
College Park, Maryland
good job, good color
Added two coats to my 20 year old teak furniture. it brought back the color, and am hoping the furniture lasts for another 20 years.
i would buy again it worked very well.
i bought it again because 1qt. was not enough for 2 coats on teak table and 4 chairs.

I will use this product whenever my teak benches need.
I'm refuburshing teak benches that have not been maintained. The Total Boat 2 part cleaner and Danish Teak Sealer have restored them. Some of these benches have not been touched for 15+ years and they look great!!

Best product so far
Very satisfied with protection this gives on deck bistro teakwood table
Very easy and fast to apply
Applies easily and quickly. Hard to do a bad job as long as one follows prep directions. Would consider the finish luster as 'satin' or maybe 'dull'. Used Danish Teak Sealer on very old (80+ years), dry pale teak. Product appears to protect the wood - too early to tell about durability and UV.
Used this product on new teak rockers. Went on easy and looks good
