Formulated with Nano Particle Technology

DEFY Marine Seal is suitable for use on all types of wooden docking materials, providing extreme durability against the harmful effects of exposure to both fresh and salt water. DEFY Marine Seal has been specially formulated using state of the art nano-particle technology to provide superior resistance against ultraviolet color fade and mold and mildew growth. New cedar docks should be cleaned as quickly as possible to avoid damage from the sun and rain. Let oil-rich woods such as mahogany weather 6 months prior to application. New pressure treated lumber typically contains a high degree of moisture and should be allowed to weather for 6-12 months prior to staining.

* Environmentally Friendly for "Clean Marinas"
* Resists Mildew/Fungus Growth
* Rapid Dry Time
* 250 VOC Compliant

To achieve optimum results, DEFY Marine Seal should not be applied over previously stained surfaces, painted surfaces or varnished surfaces. When staining composite lumber and exotic hardwoods, allow materials to weather for no less than 12 months. Prior to staining, clean all surfaces with DEFY Marine Seal Wood Dock Cleaner per label instructions. For all composite wood and exotic hardwoods, apply only one coat of stain. Note: The "wet" color of DEFY Marine Seal has a cloudy/milky appearance but will dry to a beautiful, semi-transparent finish.

once frozen can the stain be reconstituted?
Dennis Smalley , June 21, 2016
For two coats, about 500 sq. feet. For one coat, about 750 sq. feet for the 5 gallon.

Howdy, How many square feet will a 5-gallon bucket cover? Thanks!
Laura W , June 16, 2016

This would be the correct product for this.

I have a 12 year old PT wood dock over salt water. Which product do you recommend to refinish it?

re: Defy sealer
I would use the Defy Extreme Stain for a pool deck.

Defy sealer
would the defy marine sealer work well on my pressure treated swimming pool deck? If so, about how long will it last? Would there be a better product than this for my deck?

re: Which is better for a dock with IPE boards
I would stay with Defy Hardwood Stain for IPE.

Which is better for a dock with IPE boards
I used Defy Hardwood stain on a dock with IPE wood, and it did well. It's time for a redo. Should I continue to use the Hardwood stain, or switch to this Marine stain?

re: Application on a dock in the water
Yes you can apply while over water.
TheSealerStore , July 08, 2011
Application on a dock in the water
Can I apply this while my dock is in the water? I would not be able to contain all of the spillage.

re; how many years until I have to re-do the sealer
Typically every 2-3 years on a horizontal surface. You can clean and recoat when needed as long as it is the same product.

It is water-based. Shipping to Maryland is 3-5 business days.

Return policy is at the bottom of the page.

TheSealerStore , May 10, 2011
Also, how many years until I have to re-do the sealer? The description says not to apply this over previously stained surfaces (which mine is not at this point) but what happens in x number of years when I need to re-power wash and re-sealer my dock and stairs--can I use this product again?
lee , May 10, 2011
Is this marine grade sealer oil-based? Also is it in stock and how long is shop time to Maryland for 4 5-gallon containers? What is your return policy if I only use 3 of the 4 containers?
lee , May 10, 2011
Oh okay perfect. Thanks for all of your help yesterday and today.
Lee , May 03, 2011
re: Just wanted a clear
The "tints" act as your UV blocker, prolonging the graying effect. The Natural Pine is very lightly tinted. It will enhance the color similar to as if the wood was wet with water.
TheSealerStore , May 03, 2011
I really just wanted a clear sealer for my pressure-treated dock not a stain?

re: shipping to seattle
5 gallon pails ship free. Shipping time to Seattle takes about 5-6 business days.

re: What makes it environmentally friendly then
-Extremely Low VOC's
-No hazardous ingredients
-Defy Stains are Green Friendly by Masters Paint Institute
TheSealerStore , May 03, 2011
I need to get at lease 10 gallons of Defy marine seal wood shipped to Seattle Washington but i need to know how much the shipping cost me and how long takes to get them
Mario Sanchez , May 02, 2011
What makes it environmentally friendly then? The description doesn't specifically say it won't harm anything if dripped in the water?
Lee , May 02, 2011
re: Is this product EPA approved for use on docks over water?
No it is not EPA approved. To have a wood stain EPA approved the manufacturer needs to spend about $20,000 for every color to be tested and registered.
TheSealerStore , May 02, 2011
Is this product EPA approved for use on docks over water?

re:Clean Marina Issues?
Not at all. Defy Marine Seal was designed for "Clean Marinas". They are also "green friendly" products.
TheSealerStore , August 06, 2009
Clean Marina Issues?
Are there any EPA or Clean Marina issues with Defy Marine Seal
