From the earliest times, man has used wood as a building material. From houses to furniture, from doors and windows to decorative items, wood is integral to our lives. Wood is versatile and strong, and it looks so good if well finished.
Why Wood Needs Protection
Wood is a living material. To preserve its natural beauty, it needs protection from the elements and the effects of time. The wood in living trees is protected by bark and nourished by natural sap. If these are taken away, the wood left to the elements will dry out and rot away. When trees are felled and turned into timber, the bark needs replacing to protect the wood and so does the natural sap that nourished it.
Paint is one way to protect the wood, but at the price of hiding its natural beauty.
To showcase the natural beauty of wood, transparent wood finishes are needed - wood finishes that last, protect the wood and enhance the lustre and grain by nourishing it.
This Is What Woodoc Products Are About
The original Woodoc Sealers were formulated by a craftsman to protect and beautify his fine furniture.
He designed it to do two things:
To deeply penetrate and nourish the wood, thus enhancing its texture and beauty.
To protect it,
indoors and outdoors against the damaging effects of rain and the sun's UV-rays, water, alcohol, staining, heat, and daily wear and tear.
No fancy formulas or miracles of technology
just a tried and tested recipe that works.
A recipe for a range of wood care products
that is timeless.
Woodoc - A range of sealers that are truly food for wood
Deep Penetration into the Wood
Woodoc penetrates deep into the wood and bonds with it, giving it a flexible yet tough and resistant surface.
Allows the Wood to Breath
The Woodoc surface allows the wood to breathe naturally. It works in harmony with the wood, much like bark does, to help combat ageing and deterioration.
Stays in Harmony with the Wood
The flexible Woodoc coating doesn't become brittle with age but stays in harmony with the wood.
Who We Are
The House of Woodoc is the market leaders in their field.
Its Managing Director, Frikkie Greeff leads a team of dedicated staff as well as a close-knit Woodoc family of Distributors, across oceans and continents.
Whilst the Brand has for years been distributed in other continents and New-Zealand, Frikkie kept the best for later. Only after being satisfied in early 2020 that its State of the Art facility would be able to amply cope and satisfy the Australian demand, was Woodoc launched on the Australian continent.
It no sooner landed in WA that it was acclaimed a revolutionary product by a leading well-respected Australian manufacturer.
When asked, “what happens if the Australian appetite for Woodoc, grows beyond expectation” Frikkie simply smiled and replied, “ We have already anticipated and planned for that”.
All Woodoc Sealers are formulated to protect and nourish wood besides forming a tough decorative finish.
They deep penetrate the surface and bond with the wood, "living" with it and giving the longest possible life and surface protection.
Indoor Woodoc Sealers form a long-lasting beautiful finish that protects the wood against heat, alcohol and water staining whilst resisting bumps and scratches.
Few features in a home rival the warmth and glow of a well-treated wooden floor. Woodoc Floor Sealers deep penetrate to nourish and enhance the grain of the wood, while providing a tough, flexible surface that can withstand everyday use.
Exterior Woodoc Sealers are designed to resist the elements and are UV- and moisture resistant. At the end of their life cycles, they biodegrade and only need cleaning down with Woodoc and SteelWool and mineral turpentine, in the case of a solvent product and alternatively use a 320 grit sandpaper and Methylated Spirit when it is a Water-Borne product, before resealing with Woodoc again. No special scraping or sandpapering is required.
As Woodoc recognises that dense (hard) woods and porous (soft) woods require different treatments to suit the nature of their composition, Woodoc Water-Borne Deck Products have been specially formulated for use on both these dense (hard) woods and porous (soft) woods respectively.
Woodoc Colours System includes 8 Natural Wood Colours, as well as 20 translucent Fashion Colours and 7 Bright Colours, specifically formulated for use with clear Woodoc Sealers.
Woodoc Maintenance Waxes are suitable for either Indoor or Exterior application, feeding the wood as they clean and refurbish the surface coating.
Other Woodoc Products available are Woodoc and SteelWool.
