The idea of protecting wood with nature's own ingredients is almost as old as wood itself. More than a thousand years ago, the ancient peoples of Norway took resin and gums from the heartwood of trees, warmed it and applied it to their Stave Churches with a broom. Those buildings are still standing. Sansin Enviro Stains are created using the same principle.
With Sansin Enviro Stains, not only can you protect your wood naturally - you can also invite the beauty of nature into your life. Our collection of 79 unique colors is inspired by the stunning beauty of our world - the deep blue of a summer's sky, the rich yellows of the ripe harvest, the pure tones of the Southern desert.
Sansin doesn't just stain your wood; it actually becomes an integral part of your wood's cell structure, protecting it naturally from within. Because Sansin stains are water-borne, they can be applied even to wood with a high moisture content. And they're not harmful to the environment.
Day’s is a full line Sansin Distributor, and both of our locations can custom tint Sansin products to your special colour requirements.
Sansin Exterior Finishes
Sansin Classic - Specially engineered for log and timber-frame structures.
Classic is the ultimate finish for logs and big timbers – easily maintained, it can keep wood beautiful literally for decades. This low-lustre three-coat penetrating formula not only enhances the natural beauty of wood, it also allows it to breathe. A log home requires more than protection from sun and rain – the sheer size of the wood demands a coating that “breathes” freely to prevent moisture from getting trapped and rotting the log from within.
Not surprisingly, Classic works just as well on other exterior vertical surfaces, like shakes, shingles, siding and fences. Whatever the application, your wood will be protected with an ultra-violet (UV) and water-repellent shield of lasting and remarkable beauty.
Sansin SDF Penetrating one-coat finish for wood siding.
Sansin SDF provides tough, effective protection for wood siding. SDF’s specially formulated oils and resins penetrate into the wood, providing outstanding weather and UV protection in a wide range of natural, semi-transparent and even solid colors. Thanks to SDF’s unique water-borne technology, it can provide complete protection in just one coat – although a second coat will provide an even more beautiful and richer finish.
And because SDF is designed to be highly water-repellent, it’s a natural choice for homes and structures in moisture-rich environments. Not only does SDF protect the outside of your wood, it also protects the inside by allowing the wood to “breathe” which helps prevent moisture from getting trapped in the wood and causing rot.
Sansin DEC Deep penetrating two-coat protection.
Between the BBQ, the patio furniture and family get-togethers, decks have to handle more traffic than any other wood around your house. That’s why Sansin Dec is designed as a rugged two-coat formula that penetrates deeply, protecting your wood from within. Where many deck coatings easily peel and scratch, exposing wood to the elements, Dec enhances wood tissue with lasting protection from rain and UV exposure. Perfect for cedar, exotic hardwoods, Southern pine, pressure-treated lumber – whatever your deck is made of, Sansin Dec’s deep penetrating solids will protect its beauty and character.
Sansin ENS Beautiful premium finish for any project, new or old.
Sansin ENS is a durable two-coat finish that can be applied to virtually any surface – from millwork, to siding, to decks and even to improve the performance of other coatings. That’s because ENS is self-priming and offers exceptional adhesion to almost any surface, resulting in a satin or gloss finish of exceptional beauty.
ENS is highly resistant to wear, doesn’t discolor over time, and provides some of the toughest UV protection available. For even longer maintenance cycles, undercoat Sansin ENS with SDF or Classic. Whatever your project, the exceptional characteristics of ENS – in either natural, semi-transparent or solid finishes – will raise it to a new standard of beauty and durability.
