What are Waterlox Products?

Our products lock out water and lock in beauty.

Since 1910, Waterlox has been manufacturing and selling a variety of wood sealers, stains and finishes. The vast majority of our products are handmade with natural Tung Oil from the nut of the tung tree. Our unique blend of Tung Oil and resin is what differentiates us. Tung Oil provides the best penetrating qualities and enhances wood grain, while the resin creates a protective coating that is water-resistant, elastic and stands up to both foot traffic and common household spills.

Waterlox manufactures two types of products: penetrating and film-forming. We provide a few options in each category.

Penetrating Products (buff-in and wipe excess application)

Our penetrating finishes include the UNIVERSAL Tung Oil Sealer, TRUETONE and PURE Tung Oil. Standard application for these products include buffing, rubbing, trowel applying or wiping in the product and then wiping off the excess. Aside from the UNIVERSAL Tung Oil Sealer, these can be considered fully finished with the proper number of coats. They will yield an “unfinished look” and a generally matte or flat sheen appearance.

 

 

UNIVERSAL
Tung Oil Sealer

  • A universal, buff-in sealer that penetrates wood fibers.
  • Use as the base coat before applying ORIGINAL, MARINE, URETHANE and H2OLOX finishes.
  • This is a sealer only and must be used in conjunction with a finish.

TRUETONE
Stains

  • Enhance the color and grain of wood with our buff-in, color-infused Tung Oil stain.
  • Available in 11 shades.
  • Can be overcoated with TRUETONE Buff-In Tung Oil Finish or any of our premium wood finishes.

TRUETONE
Finish

  • A buff-in, low odor and VOC compliant protective finish.
  • Produces a matte sheen appearance and highlights the natural beauty of wood.
  • Can be applied over TRUETONE Stains.

PURE
Tung Oil

  • Raw Tung Oil that contains no additives or driers.
  • Produces a matte sheen appearance and highlights the natural beauty of wood.
  • Ideal for wood surfaces that do not require a film, such as salad bowls, cutting boards and wood figurines.
 
Film-Forming Products (brush on application)

Our film-forming finishes are comprised of the H2OLOX, ORIGINAL, MARINE and URETHANE product families. The standard application is applying a wet coat of finish (brush, pad, t-bar, etc.) and then letting it dry. There are a variety of sheen options available from matte through high gloss and these finishes will result in a much more “finished look”.
