Product performance and characteristics may vary depending upon many conditions, substrates and applications involved. Test prior to use to determine suitability for your project.
A Modern Tricopolymer Sealant with hundreds of uses around the Home and Garden. Designed to be applied to French Garden frame wood, Cold Frames, Trellis, Pagodas, Clay pots, raw wood, Greenhouse bed and seed frames, watering tables, inside and outside wall wood décor, veggie greenhouses, fish huts, bird baths, bird and bat boxes, cabins, fences, arbor trellis, wood playsets, picnic tables.
Also seals rose wounds, tree wounds, including large opening tree wounds.
Great for sealing metal, wood, as well as steel, aluminum, and clay objects. Sheds rainwater, prevents rust. Salt resistant - Great for coastal and ocean locations.
Application for new or existing wood, the product is easy to apply, dries clear and is self-leveling. Easy clean-up with only soap and water. Seals chemically treated wood against chemical leach-out, skin contact, splinters and knots. Two+ coats recommended.
The Tricopolymer film’s “Barrier Action” seals out moisture and contaminants. Since the coating resists rapid rewetting, the wood has time to dry out to the proper percentage of Moisture Content (MC) which is important to the strength of the structure. Dry wood = strong wood. All wood will “grey” over time, if this is not desired, stain first with any water based stain color desired, then apply Garden-Seal. Benefits: Stain color wash-off also reduced up to 50% or more.
Contains no soybean oils, camphor toxins, petroleum byproducts or mineral wax liquids.
Safe for Children and Pets. Safe for Livestock, Poultry and Equine use if used properly.
Great for Veggie- garden wood, no leaching into roots, fertilizer and chemical resistant, manure and compost safe. Chicken coop and birdhouse safe. Proven for over 25 years.
Compatible with all water-based stains and paints. The sealant’s high adhesive performance exceeds most primers and costs less with more coverage per square foot.
Easy and fast application, including quick cleanup.
Economical primer-Dries Clear, without the “white after-mess” issue to deal with.
Dries to a thin-flexible and strong film coating, that some call “plastic-like”. The result is safely sealing your project without the harmful chemicals, smells, skin burns and risk of sickness afterwards.
The Next Generation of VOC free and Non Toxic Tricopolymer Coating., Cedar-Seal is specially formulated to work with Cedar and other high oil content woods. Great for new or existing sidings, shingles, fascia, fences, patio covers, playsets, pet structures, gazebos, trellises and much more.
Cedar-Seal also stabilizes the wood by allowing any excessive moisture to pass out of the wood gradually through the film. Cedar-Seal dries clear and maintains the wood’s oil content for years to come. Cedar-Seal may be applied after waterbased stains, or before painting with any waterbased paint product. Natural “graying" will occur if used as a stand-alone clear coating. Achieve graying without the use of Iron oxides.
The best choice for new or existing concrete floors, basements, concrete walls, blocks, containers, bird baths and more.
Conkrete-Seal's micro-film seals, protects and stabilizes without impacting your environment.
Conkrete-Seal's Tricopolymer micro-film barrier action seals out moisture and protects the concrete surface from spills, with the added peace of mind of being non-toxic with zero VOC's.

The Coating is ‘plastic-like” and provides a “Barrier Action” by sealing out moisture and contaminants. Fence-Seal stabilizes the coated wood by allowing any excessive moisture to pass out of the wood gradually through the film- while preventing rapid rainwater soak in- thus keeping the board wood moisture content low. That means less twist, nail pop, spalling and cracking, major reduction in tip end bending and sagging.
Fence-Seal dries clear and balances the wood moisture content (MC) for years to come. The environmentally friendly way to protect your investment. All wood will “grey” over time, if this is not desired, stain first with any water based stain color desired, and then seal. Benefits: Stain color wash-off over time reduced 50% or more.
Contains no leaching oils, camphor toxins, petroleum byproducts or mineral wax liquids. Safe for Children and Pets.

Since 1995, the development of the Tricopolymer started to evolve and thru the next 24 years the performance in the marketplace are well known. Recording Customer ratings of 4.8 stars and tens of millions of square feet covered. No toxic liquids, fumes, off-gassing, soy oils, lacquers, or waxes mixed with solvents .
Watch any renovation TV shows? Renovators are always tearing out damaged wood and materials, even on younger homes, or during building the structure costing more time and money, materials and difficulty. Triple the importance for use in flood and hurricane zones, water damaged structures, or salt water or coastal zones. A must for sealing renovations prior to cover-up.
Thru the years we have learned- It is the only sealant that is non-toxic, dries fast, is a tough, clear finish. A water based, water resistant, correct perm rate, prevents rust, lasts 2-30+ years depending on application. Scratch off resistant, chemical resistant, plumbing and wire casings not effected, nail-pop reduced, makes a great and economical primer. Easy to apply, no harsh smells, no VOCs, water cleanup, safe for children, pets and the environment.
Tested and applied by 250,000+ Consumers, the chemical design and components were independently tested and verified for many years, real world result testing included. Customers report a power spray rate of 900-1200 sq ft per gallon of product. Expected rate is usually 400-800 sq ft a gallon. Brush applied-200-300. Try a paint tray and foam paint pads and spreaders. One to two “thin” coats are all it takes to protect most surfaces. Applies like water-allowing quick coverage with no thick mess. The product dries clear having benefit of no white primer ‘mess’ to deal with.
Why different labels?
We designed more benefits to each protect type or label. Lumber-Seal for homes, Conkrete-Seal for floor and block walls, Garden-Seal for garden wood, green houses, Cedar-Seal for cedar shingle walls, Fence-Seal for wood fencing. We 'tweeked' the recipes for higher performance in application.
Use the Tricopolymer to pre-spray exterior core board prior to stucco attachment. The Tricopolymer can be used on exterior faces of stucco before painting to economically prime and seal the surface at half the cost of primer. Seal log cabins, barns, lap-board houses, farm houses, and more. Wear and foot traffic areas are the exception since the coating will wear-off as usual.
Again, it is important to mention Tricopolymer should not be sprayed on heating elements, food stuffs, pets, children, slides or mechanical movement hardware, hot surfaces, ovens, heating coils, steam pipe heater units, glass, art or valuable items, roofing shingles, HVAC heating-A/C units, pools, koi ponds, tiles, final finishes, furniture and antiques, light bulbs, inside light sockets or electrical panels, refrigerators, air condenser units, washer and dryer units, appliances, filters, alarms, smoke and Carbon Monoxide CO2 detectors, appliances, vents, fire sprinklers, cameras and electronics, decorative fixtures and surfaces. Do not apply to marble, butcher block cutting surfaces, resin-type counter tops, granite, faux, cement or tile counter tops, stainless steel, or similar surfaces. Please call us if any surface is in question.
And as always-
Do not ingest or inject. Keep container sealed. Keep buckets sealed and away from children or pets to prevent accidental drowning. Seek medical help if injected or swallowed. Clean up with cold water before the product dries. Clean spills with an absorbent and plenty of water. Dispose of in trash as usual. Do not refill labeled container.
Suggestions for a successful project-
Power Sprayer, hand sprayer (good brand), foam pad, or brush applied-Pre-plan for drip cloths, wind conditions, and temperatures- Apply Product while stirring- or stir and pour off amount needed in a tray or small container. Keep lid tightly closed, especially on buckets -Children may fall head first in half filled bucket and drown.
Safety First - Wear eye protection, gloves, and old clothes. Protect your hair. Product is difficult to remove when dry. Apply in good weather. Freeze-proof when dry. May be slippery when wet. Keep young children and pets away while applying.
--Any Wood will turn gray in color in Sun exposure. Apply semi-color water-based stain, then seal it, unless a driftwood color is desired. Seal the surfacefirst, then paint as usual. The Tricopolymer is a great and inexpensive primer-saving big $$$.
--Seal renovation of wall cavities, bath tear-outs, and subfloors prior to cover-up.
-- Seal New Homes during the ‘One-side complete” stage for optimum benefits.
-- Multi-Family structures as well as single-family homes experience water accidents many times during their lifespan, protect your investment.
--Renovation? Seal all surfaces after tear-out that will be “covered up” later.
--Cover any area you don’t wish to have sealant adhere to, especially in wind conditions, dripping areas, tape off edges to other materials. Review your site before starting project, take in account if a spill accident occurs and how to quickly clean the area using wet towels or mop and bucket backups.
The Directions contain information, MSDS sites, suggestive uses, and more, questions are welcome, contact us below.
About Coverage- Rough or weathered boards require more sealant due to more surface area to coat- why? Cracks and grain openings on board surfaces actually increase area volume sometimes as much as 15 times depending on age of board surface.
Beading of water- This is only temporary, surface tension is obtained during fresh surface coating, after a short while, dirt, soot, dust and fine particles “break the surface tension of the water drop” and cause water to “relax”, so to speak. Common old-style toxic water proofers fade with dissipation and require re-coating each year. Coating over with paint later when the wood is older? Repainting becomes impossible due to added waxes and solvents in the solvent’s formula becoming embedded in the wood core. These resist any future coating desired, and lead to paint failures in short time. Environmentally friendly? We think not. Water proofers that use solvents- Wonder why they smell bad? Never last? VOCs are upwards of 45% in some products. If a product can kill fish, why use it?
Raising wood grain- For raw wood to become smooth, the wood fibers need to be “raised” in order to sand off the rough surface. Apply water to the surface, allow to dry, sand surface and repeat until desired surface result occurs. Then Seal. Some wood boards are economy cut and will always be rough due to crosscutting the wood grain. Sealing these will keep moisture from destroying the core.
Sealing Chemically Treated Wood- Sealing the treated wood keeps your chemical ingredients from dilution with water, adds years to the lifespan, slows spalling and cracking.
Designed uses of the Tricopolymer coating- Seal and prime for paint cost savings, raised garden beds, as a renovation sealer, sub-floor sealant, birdhouses, poultry houses, greenhouses, tree houses, tiny homes, ocean piers, metal pipes and sheds, lake docks, playground wood, reptile enclosures, zoos, livestock and equine enclosures, sheds, barns, stables, trees, log homes, yurts, marinas, resort uses, and more…

Independently verified by Chemists, ASTM rated, USGBC LEED points available, USDA/NOP/ORMI reviewed.
MOST RECENT REVIEW-
Dear Tricopolymer Company:
I have been a wildlife biologist for nearly 30 years, and was an animal lover long before that. I have spent my life building specialized animal housing: insect cages, snake cages, frog ponds, aviaries, turtle pens, porcupine houses - you name it. The problem of finding a durable, non-toxic sealant has always been a major challenge, and I have tried it all, trust me.
Several years ago I ordered some of your sealants - the Kennel-Seal and Lumber-Seal, specifically. I thought I would put them to the test. I live in northwestern Oregon, in a climate that is extremely wet from fall through spring, and very dry all summer. The combination usually causes most sealants to fail. I tested your sealant on multiple projects, with different grades of wood and different types of wood product, and in multiple exposures. Everything I built with it is in great shape several years later.
You make an absolutely fantastic product. I will say it again: your product is EXCELLENT!!! I am so happy with its performance. You have a customer for life. I recommend it to all my friends and colleagues. In the next few years, I am planning to write a manual on building specialized animal housing and I will mention your product by name. (I also own a small nursery, and I am building some new greenhouses: I'm looking forward to trying your sealant for them, as well!)
Thanks again for a great product. It has saved me a tremendous amount of time and money. Most importantly, it has saved me worry because I don't have to be afraid of animal exposure to sealant materials.
GREAT JOB!!! Thanks a bunch!!
