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.

    We are about to have a new dock installed with pressure treated pine decking.  The builder is telling us that PT wood he is sourcing now is noted to be finished immediately.  Do I need to do any prep to the new wood before using Defy Marine Stain on it? The lake we're on in the Finger Lakes is an aquifer and we draw our water from it as well, so I'm very uncomfortable using cleaners that would rinse off into the lake.

      Hi is incorrect. It is not about the wood but the stain or coating brand that you use. Defy marine needs 3+ months of weathering and then prep with the Defy Cleaner and Defy Brighener before staining. Teh prep products are eco-friendly.

    hi ... I installed a cedar dock last summer, removed it  in late fall and stored the panels in he basement this winter. I want to treat the dock before putting it bak in the lake.  What do you recommend to maintain the cedar look while protecting the wood?  Does more color mean better protection? ... Dan

    It says, "Two 2.5 Gallon (total of 5 gallons) or One 2.5-Gallon container." Based on the selections available, I'm guessing it should say, "Two 2.5 Gallon (total of 5 gallons) or One 5-Gallon container," correct?  So, if I select 2.5 Gallon and I choose a quantity of 1, is that price for a pack of Two 2.5 gallon containers?

      No, the wording is correct.  You have two size options. One for Two 2.5 Gallon (total of 5 gallons) for $229.24 or One 2.5-Gallon container for $149.24.

        OK, so the 5-gallon buckets are no longer available?

    Hello I am uo in Canada, I need to build new cedar dock boards on a freshwater lake. Was wondering if I should seal them to get longer life out of them. What would you recommend and should cedar be treated right away or does it need to weather for 6 months also. Please advise.

      Let it weather until spring and then clean and brighten for prep prior to applying.

    We live on a small lake in central Ohio. We built a new dock and decking from extreme weather PTW at the end of March this year. I was planning on cleaning and staining it at the end of September/early October this Fall. Is 6 months enough for it to weather? I hesitate to wait until Spring because it is often wet and then summer is so humid.
    If I order shortly, how long does it take to arrive? I estimate I will need three 2.5 gal. containers of the Defy Marine stain plus 2 containers of the Defy Marine cleaner.

      Yes, you can stain it now. You need the Defy Brightener as well. About 2-4 days to Ohio.

    I have a wooden dock in the St. John River at Pancake Hill Carter's Point New Brunswick Canada that is one year old and not previously treated. It is removed seasonally and thus would be in the St. John River 6 months. How do I obtain your product to treat it. How many coatings and How frequently must it be treated. There is saltwater influence including tidal from the Bay of Fundy at Carter's Point

      You can buy directly from the website and shave it shipped there. One coat, redo every couple of years.

    Do you have to reapply Defy on a freshwater dock every year. if not, how long does it typically last in the Southern US.

    Hi, I have a 9-mth old deck which I stained with Thomson's from Lowes and it appears to not be able to withstand the NorCal coast moisture and sun beating. Would you suggest for me to re-stain with Defy Marine, Defy Extreme or Cabot?

      Use the Defy Extreme. Remove the Thompsons first.

    26 years of deck cleaning and staining experience in Maryland . I moved to Murrells Inlet SC to retire and I want to help my friend start a business washing and staining docks and piers . I found your product in my search for a marine grade semi-transparent stain that can handle the salt water and UV sun in this area . Wash , brighten and apply stain seems to be the procedure here as well . What else can you recommend for this start up business ?

      That is all you would need as far as materials from our end unless there is an old semi-transparent coating that needs to be removed with our Defy Stain Stripper.

    We stained our pier maybe 5 years or more with just Thompson seal from Lowe's right after it was pressure washed. It has been stained only twice since it was built, around 1995 with salt treated lumber from our local H & B Lumber here in Statesville, NC. Really no issues with it, just wanting to protect it a little better and will use whatever you recommend!

    Please advise the best deck stain for me. Thinking of doing a light sanding and using semi transparent oil based stain. Would it be better for me to use a marine paint for better protection? also I heard there is something you can put on a deck instead of doing sanding before staining? Thank you, Mark

      You do not need a dock stain for this. Try the Defy Extreme Stain or the TWP 1500 series.

    What do you recommend for application? I see DEFY makes a push brush head that is 11” wide but I cannot find this product on your site.
