Deck sealer?

7 posts in this topic

Anyone ever try using deck sealer as a way of sealing the wooden hard baits prior to painting?

I have some Thompson's deck sealer and I was thinking about giving it a try. Its is supposed to penetrate well and render the wood waterproof.

Anyone ever try using deck sealer as a way of sealing the wooden hard baits prior to priming/painting?

I hadn't considered the possibility of wax as an ingredient. I was just sorta thinkin' out loud.

I've tried the normal stuff and it works okay, but I'm always looking for something better.

Just checked it out, Husky.

The can states the following ingredients:

  • mineral spirits
  • linseed oil
  • alkyd resin
  • boiled linseed oil
  • tung oil
  • aliphatic petroleum distillates
  • dipentene

The aliphatic p d may be a problem.

I think They talked about it on the Striper Board.
