Sikkens Cetol has grown steadily since its humble beginnings in 1792. Throughout the history of Sikkens, the organization has always sought to outperform the rest in every way- from idea to execution. Sikkens Paint Technology is second to none, and backed up to by over two centuries of customer satisfaction.
Cetol Marine is different from the rest because of its unique formula based on alkyd resins that contain synthetic transparent iron oxide pigments, which shields wood against sunlight. It is these pigments that give Cetol Marine its attractive appearance. Cetol Marine durable surface film protects the wood from the elements and the harsh marine environment. It has excellent weathering properties and, more importantly, it is flexible- allowing for the natural expansion and contraction of wood. Cetol Marine is also microporous, which allows wood to breathe. This helps to keep moisture content of wood stable, as it allows it to escape, preventing blistering. This allows Cetol Marine to be applied to wood with a higher moisture content (up to 18%) compared to varnish. Cetol Marine is formulated to a lower viscosity than most wood finishes. This allows excellent wood penetration, easy and rapid application of coats and superb flow and leveling, preventing the need for sanding between coats. Cetol Marine is formulated for use on all marine woods, and is particularly suitable for tropical hardwoods like teak.
Interlux Sikkens Cetol Marine Light with Next Wave UV-absorbing technology is a durable translucent protective wood finish for use above the waterline on interior and exterior woods and is easy to apply or maintain. Cetol Marine Light is identical to the Cetol Marine but formulated with different pigments to produce a lighter amber appearance on wood. Next Wave technology is the next generation of Cetol Marine from Sikkens with a unique UV-absorbing package, which contains specialty resins and advanced UV absorbers that provide greater protection, durability and longevity.
