Description

Pettit EZ-Wood Sealer

Marine wood sealers are used to seal raw wood surfaces to help prep for painting and varnishing. Boat wood sealers help to provide a more uniform surface for applying other finishing products such as topside or bottom paints.

Pettit EZ Marine Wood Sealer is formulated to work on all types of wood surfaces and provides a moisture barrier to help stop peeling. Boat wood sealers prevent primers, paints, and varnishes from being absorbed into the wood surface. Pettit marine wood sealer is easy to apply on all types of wood surfaces such as teak and mahogany. Once boat wood sealer is applied, it is recommended that you sand the surface before applying finishing products such as topside primers or paints. Pettit EZ-Wood Sealer is safe to use under all Pettit, Z-Spar, and Shipendec products.

Features:

  • Seals open wood grain providing a more uniform finish
  • For all woods including teak, mahogany, oak, ash, fir, and plywood
  • Prevents excessive vehicle absorption from primers, paints, or varnishes
  • Excellent penetration into raw wood for improved stability and moisture resistance

How to Apply Pettit EZ Wood Sealer

Make sure to stir EZ Wood Sealer prior to application.
