Sansin Dec is a tough formula that penetrates deep into the wood and protects your deck from the inside out. While film coatings chip and scratch easily, exposing wood to the elements, Dec provides long-lasting protection from rain and UV exposure.

Decks are subject to a great deal of wear and tear and must be maintained regularly. With Dec, you can preserve the beauty of your deck with a simple cleaning and refreshing coat.


Sansin Dec is an environmentally friendly, 2-coat penetrating coating specifically designed for decks. Dec is ideal for cedar, pine, spruce, fir, treated wood and exotic hardwoods. This product is UV resistant, water repellent, low VOC, non-flammable and easily washable with water and mild soap. The modified natural oil in Sansin DEC penetrates deep into the wood regardless of its moisture content (which often ranges above 25% for decks). Even at high solids, Sansin DEC allows the wood to "breathe" freely. Sansin DEC provides excellent UV and weather protection while being easy to maintain. This product will not crack, peel or blister. It is the best choice for maintaining the natural beauty and integrity of your wood.

Vertical surfaces require maintenance every 1 to 4 years. Maintenance is necessary when the surface shows signs of wear, such as discoloration or erosion. Maintaining your wood on a regular basis will allow it to keep its color in the long term, to have a better dimensional stability and to keep its water repellency. Periodically, wash your wood with a power washer and/or use Sansin multi-wash to remove dust and dirt. The frequency of maintenance will depend on the quality of the preparation, application and conditions.

If discoloration or erosion is evident, power wash your wood and/or use Sansin multi-wash to remove dust and dirt. Then reapply a maintenance coat of Sansin DEC following the application instructions. Exposure, application and color selection will affect the performance of the coating.
