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.
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!
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.
You can put it over Totalboat Teak Oil, but not others.
Is product clear, natural, amber?
The product is slightly amber, almost the same result as any teak oil.
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
I would say, amber.
Product has an orange tint. Gives clean teak a warm glow. Am a fan of product.
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 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
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.
Sorry-I can't help since I haven't used it yet!!
can i use this on mahogany?thanks
Sorry--I haven't used mine yet. I intend to use it on teak.
Should you used teak oil before you use the Danish teak sealer?
We applied the teak sealer (two coats with a light sanding between each coat) to an outdoor teak patio dining table top and did not use teak oil before the application. The result was a beautiful, golden hue and we were thrilled with the results. Depending on how it weathers, we plan on reapplying the sealer every year or so.
I wouldn't this is pretty much a twinned product, 1st cleaner than sealer. if you wanted to try some teak oil on a semi-visible surface to see how it goes,go ahead. a lot of the product are not mixable, like acrilic primer and latex paint. best to stick w/ recommendation on can . good luck
Has anybody tried this on Cypress? I build Adirondack chairs and so far have not found a satisfactory finish for it so I am wondering if something suitable for Teak would also work on Cypress - Thanks for your help.
I have not tried on cypress, only on teak. Applied it about two months ago and its holding fine. Should work well on cypress as it should absorb more than teak.M.
I've only used it on teak and walnut. it's yellow in the can though it still has a very slight yellow tint on the wood. It does dry and seal very well. Has a very flat matte finish.
Is this anything like Epifanes teak sealer?
It worked well for me. The key was getting the teak very clean before the application. I plan on cleaning my teak and using the sealer again this year.Is there anything else ? Sure I have polyed my teak on other boats in the past, Just not the same look.
Haven't tried it yet
let me know if get a second
I used the Total Boat Danish teak sealer on my Teak Patio Table. It looks better than new. I couldn't be happier. The product was easy to use. I applied two coats using the foam brushes that were included in the kit. In addition the price was less expensive that any of the products I have used in the past. Thanks for such a great product.

TotalBoat danish teak sealer
I used this on my teak patio table. After cleaning and lightly sanding I applied 2 coats of the sealer. I used the foam brush included with the sealer it went on easily This is the first sealer I have used that was easy to use, less expensive and gave me the best results. Can't be happier my table looks beautiful.
I will buy this again
I treated some old teak seats and deck strips. I also used it on a red oak mast & boom support while trailering.
i will buy again
I used this on an oak mast support for trailering and on old teak deck and seat trim
Loved the Teak Sealer.
The sealer is used on a mahogany deck. It made it look like new. Compared to previous treatments it looks to be substantially better. The truth will be evident in September.
Spruce up the teak without pain!
Messy, but color looks natural
I used this product for teak trim on the upper transom, as well as teak handrails and eyebrow trim on a 34' sailboat. For the upper transom piece, it was fully sanded and the water that runs over the deck will run over it as it drains aft, so I'm curious how it will hold up. Looks good, no gloss, more like oiled teak.For the eye brows and handrails, they were cleaned with no sanding. The look was better with the transom piece that was sanded.This stuff is like water, so it runs freely when applying with a regular or foam brush. I moved to using a rag to apply it which is better but still messy. Even pouring it out of the can is messy, since it easily splashes. This caused the 3 star rating, may increase if it holds up well.Time will tell how it will hold up. I used two coats to ensure it soaked in, lightly wiping after an hour or so.

Worked great on both old and new wood
I used the Total Boat Danish Teak sealer on both an old teak folding cockpit table and a new bench that we have in our cockpit. The old table had been treated with teak oil over time and looked scruffy. The new bench had been oiled by the manufacturer, but not well done. I lightly sanded both to smooth the surface and open the grain.The Danish Teak sealer wiped on easily and soaked in. After a couple hours I wiped the surface but little rubbed off. After the first coat both looked so good I almost didn't apply the second, but it was worth it. The result was a smooth non-oily finish with a light sheen. The sealer created a natural warm look and is smooth to the touch.I hope the finish will last as the bench sits exposed to sun and elements in the cockpit, but so far it looks great.

Jamestown sent me EVERYTHING I needed in one package.
The liquid sealer went on very easily, and a small quart can did our whole patio set, with enough left over for next year.
Used this product on outdoor benches that I restored with teak lumber a couple years ago. I applied the finish after cleaning with Semco Teak Cleaner (good stuff!!). I used two coats but honestly did not really need to as the second coat was nearly all wiped off - very little absorption. 1 qt goes a long way if you prepare the wood and let it dry well before applying the finish. Wipe it down (really well) after 30 minutes or so and buff it out if you like a satin sheen after 24 hrs. Does not seem slippery at all so no worries for boat use.
