Vermont Natural Coatings Penetrating Water Proofer is a natural wood preservative product that seals wood from the inside, extending the life of the wood by controlling moisture, thus reducing mold and decay. 

Juniper is nature’s strongest natural wood preservative. We infuse it into our Water Proofer to create a long lasting, zero VOC water proofer that is safe for people, pets and the environment.

More about this product (provided by the manufacturer)

  • Safe for use over water
  • Protects against moisture, mold and mildew
  • Invisible when dry; allow wood to gray naturally
  • Available in quarts, gallons and five gallon pails
  • Easy application & cleanup

Installation Notes

If new wood, be certain surface is thoroughly cleaned before applying. For pressure washing, do not exceed 1200 psi and use wide-spray nozzle. Allow to dry completely. For previously coated material, be sure all loose finish is removed, then clean thoroughly. Test to ensure wood  is able to accept finish by checking if water beads on surface, or soaks into wood. If water soaks in, the wood it is able to accept Penetrating Water Proofer.

 

Application

  • Stir well prior to use.
  • Apply with a brush and/or spray equipment without thinning to a properly prepared surface. Brush in any puddles of product on the surface.
  • Apply two coats. The second coat must be applied before the first coat dries. If the first coat fully dries it will not allow the second coat to penetrate. No sanding is required between coats.
  • Coat all wood surfaces and end-grain and apply in temperatures between 45° – 100°F and relative humidity of 40%-60%. Coating all surfaces increases the stability of the wood. High humidity or low temperature may lengthen dry time.

 

Drying/Curing Time

Under normal conditions, surface will be ready for foot traffic in 2-3 hours after second coat. One gallon will cover approximately 300 sq. ft. depending on porosity of wood.

Natural Protection For Raised Bed

My raised bed for vegetables needs something less toxic than most commercial preservatives and coatings. This natural product seems to do the trick, though I have been putting it on annually. The wood is untreated fir so I am hoping it lasts more than 5 years.
