Introducing the TeakGuard System
Everything you know about cleaning and sealing teak has become obsolete with TEAKGUARD. Teak is a different animal!
Natural occurring oils saturate teakwood are its blessing and, improperly cared for, its curse. The reason boat builders use teak is because of these oils, which give it a pleasing appearance, and more importantly, inhibit tendency to rot. The sun brings the natural oil to the surface, where it dries to a discolored gray, ultimately becoming black, due to the growth of mold and mildew.
Just as teak is unique among wood, TEAKGUARD is designed and formulated to work with the unique qualities and needs of teak wood (and other woods - see below). Typically teak sealants chip and peel because moisture that has accumulated between the wood and sealer is acted upon by the sun and causes the bond between he sealer and the teak to break down, resulting in cracking and flaking.
TEAKGUARD stands alone in that it allows moisture (water vapor) to escape by "breathing", while at the same time sealing in the woods natural oils and protecting them from oxidization.
TEAKGUARD, through a combination of absorbers and reflectors, provides protection from ultraviolet rays, to further extend the life of the finish and the wood.
TEAKGUARD's polymer resin do not support mold or mildew growth, and will not stain fiberglass.
TEAKGUARD is a water based product, designed to be safe and easy to use. The product can be stored with peace of mind as it is non-flammable. Protect from freezing. Shake well before using!
Once applied, TEAKGUARD is guaranteed for one year, not to chip, peel, or fade. It does, however, wear from foot and hand traffic, and will weather over time. When your teak starts to look a little worn, or is just not as beautiful as you like it to be, clean the wood with a boat soap, let it dry, then give it a light buffing with bronze wool, and apply several coats of TEAKGUARD. It will soak into the old TEAKGUARD coating and renew the finish. Drying time is approximately 10-20 minutes between coats, so it is quick and easy.
It is a unique product! Maybe we are unique too- we stand behind our product!
TEAKGUARD is also great for use on other following hard, oily woods including: rosewood, ironwood, ipay, mahogany, eucalyptus, red cedar, white cedar, and cypress.
PROPER CLEANING AND FINISHING OF TEAK If your teak has deteriorated to the point that it must be sanded to be restored, then you must sand before cleaning. Sand with " 50 " GRIT PAPER, then do final sanding with coarse bronze wool. Sanding teak generates both oil and wood dust, which combine to form a paste that effectively seals the grain of the wood, preventing effective penetration of Teakguard.
As a result, you must use a good teak cleaner that is labeled as such. (Please note that household bleach is NOT strong enough to kill mold and mildew spores.) Follow the directions on the Teak cleaner. During the final rinse buff well in the direction of the grain, using coarse bronze or stainless wool. (Do not use plastic pads - they have poor cutting action.), rinse and buff until the water runs clear. (The gray flowing in the water is dead oil, which cleaners alone cannot remove.)
When the wood appears dry, buff in the direction of the grain to smooth the fuzz, or grain raise. If you did not achieve a grain raise, you did not get all of the dead oil off and you must repeat the cleaning process again.
THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST! If you are ready to prepare your teak as outlined above, you surely won't want to undermine your efforts by using a lesser protective agent. Shake well before using, then apply TEAKGUARD protective coating immediately after the wood has dried, because in just a day or two the sun will draw fresh oils to surface. For best results, apply the third coat and allow TEAKGUARD to cure for 2 or 3 hours.

If it starts to look worn, or just not as good as you would like, clean the wood with a boat soap, let dry, give it a light buffing with bronze wool, and apply another coat or so. It will soak into itself and renew the coating. Drying time is approximately 10-20 minutes between coats, so it is quick and easy!
