What is Semco Teak Sealer?
SEMCO is made in the USA and is the most trusted teak care product.
There is a reason that the world’s Superyachts use and depend on SEMCO not only for their decks but for their teak furniture as well. SEMCO has been around for a long time and will be for years to come and is continually being accepted as the product most recommended by furniture stores that know teak. In Australia, SEMCO is recommended by all the Major boat builders and if you have ever visited a boat show and wondered how they keep those teak decks so clean when they are being trodden on by thousands of people every day for days on end, then you can almost be sure that SEMCO is there protecting those floors.
SEMCO Teak Sealer is a solvent based teak finish with water-like viscosity containing pigments, mildewcide, UV inhibitors and moisture protection. SEMCO does not contain silicone, varnish, polymers or exotic oils. and is used to preserve the teak in its natural colour. When SEMCO Teak Sealer is properly applied to teak, the wood will look as if it has nothing on it, yet it will not turn grey or support the growth of mildew. Surface soil can be washed away with mild detergent, and with seasonal recoating the teak will be preserved in its natural state for many years.
When SEMCO Teak Sealer is applied to the teak and it has had a week or two to weather, the wood will appear as if it has "nothing" on it, yet the teak will not turn grey or allow the growth of mildew. After cleaning and sealing with SEMCO the first time, an occasional cleaning with soap and water and a single fresh coat of Sealer applied seasonally will keep the teak looking great for years to come. If water dashed on the surface beads up, then the SEMCO is still working and does not need re-coating. Avoid applying SEMCO too often as the finish will build up and mask the grain of the wood.
