What’s the difference between Hewbury Paint’s two sealers: ‘Fortified Stain & Sealer’ and ‘Extra Protective Clear Coat’?

Both are water-based and both are high-quality hard-wearing sealers for furniture refinishing. Our Fortified Stain & Sealer has the additional advantage of being water-repellent and is suitable for sealing exterior decking. It comes in a satin sheen and is available in Clear and a variety of pigmented translucent colours. It is typically used to change the colour of timber but not hide the natural woodgrain. However, it can also be applied on painted surfaces to add durability or provide a further dimension to the original painted colour.

Extra Protective Clear Coat is a Clear formulation that is water-resistant after curing, and is available in an eggshell or gloss sheen. This sealer is typically used on water-based painted surfaces, but can be used to seal raw wood as well.

Both sealers have low VOCs, are UV-resistant, and are fast-drying with a short cure time.
