Selwood Wood Stain & Protector (5L)

95% of 100

Selwood Wood Stain & Protector is a multi-purpose and versatile wood stain & protector for wooden climbing frames and playhouses, or other wooden garden products if you wish. Our wood stain and protector offers high quality wood protection, weather proofing and protecting all varieties of outdoor timber with a waterproof coating that also resists algal and fungal attack. Applying wood stain and protector will minimise the damaging effects caused by weathering, such as cracks and splinters.

Easy to apply, and fast drying our water based wood stain and protector is child/pet/plant friendly because it doesn't contain turpentine, white spirit or heavy metals, and because it's water based it's has very low VOCA's (volatile organic compounds).

Lasting up to 5 years, our Wood Stain & Protector creates a microporous waterproof coating that contains a non-hazardous mould and algae inhibitor to protect the integrity of the coating. The blended organic pigments ensure that the colour is bright, pure and long lasting, and with added wax and acrylic it's most effective water repellents currently available.

Wood Stain & Protector - Material Safety Data Sheet

Surface Preparation

Surfaces must be clean and dry. Before application clean weathered or dirty wood using water, detergent and a stiff brush. No basecoat or primer is required, unless applying to bare wood, when a water based knotting agent or anti-stain blocking primer should be used. The superior formulation of this product allows it to be applied to any material that is porous.


Stir well before and during use. Apply using brush, sponge, low pressure spray gun or roller. Allow to dry for 2-4 hours. If left longer, sand back lightly before applying the next coat. DO NOT apply in temperatures below 5°C (41 °F), or if wet weather is expected within 48hrs. DO NOT apply to wet, damp or frozen timber.

SUGGESTION: Swings/accessories can be removed to ensure they do not get stained.


1 litre covers approximately 8-12m² depending on moisture content and porosity of the wood. This can be up to twice the coverage of spirit based products, and ours is child/pet/plant friendly.

It’s recommended that 2 coats are applied for maximum protection and durability. Each additional coat increases the colour and sheen.

As an approximate guide, one 5 litre bottle should be sufficient for 2-coats on any product up to £2,000. For our smaller sets you'll therefore get four (or more) coats per 5 litre bottle.

Drying Time

Touch dry within 2 hours, depending upon humidity and drying conditions.

Cleaning up

Remove excess product from the brush, roller or sponge washing with warm water and detergent. Wash nozzle & pipe from sprayer immediately after use with warm water and detergent - DO NOT allow product to dry in sprayer, on brush, sponge or roller. Splashes can be cleaned away with warm water and detergent whilst still wet.


Keep out of reach of children and animals.

Ensure good ventilation during application and drying.

Wear suitable protective clothing (coveralls) & synthetic rubber/pvc gloves during application.

Unprotected persons or animals should be kept away until coated surfaces are dry.

Avoid contact with skin & eyes. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and if necessary seek medical advice.

Wash hands and exposed skin before meals and after use.

May be harmful if swallowed.
