Advancements in exterior water-based woodcare

Our advanced water-based woodcare formulations mean they are now just as durable as any solvent-based alternative, which is why more landscapers and builders are making the switch.

Here, we explain why you would choose water-based woodcare over solvent-based products. 

A solution that lasts

As long as the wood is prepared correctly, water-based products offer a quality finish that lasts. The resins used in our water-based products mean that Ronseal Trade 10 Year Woodstain, Crystal Clear Exterior Varnish, Fencing Stain and Decking Protector offer tough protection against knocks and scuffs. Unlike solvent-based competitors, they also withstand increases in temperature and will flex with the wood as it expands, preventing peeling and cracking. In addition, our Ronseal Trade water-based products have lower alkyd levels, which means the colour you put on, is the colour that lasts.

Water-based products mean you can finish jobs faster – and more safely

Another major benefit of water-based woodcare products is that they are quick drying – which means you can fit in more jobs each week.

For example, Ronseal Trade 10 Year Woodstain delivers an industry-leading four-hour recoating time, so you can apply all three coats required in just one day. We recommend a maximum of two hours between coats of Ronseal Trade Decking Protector – and with just two coats required, you’re in and out in less than a day. 

Most importantly, all these performance claims are backed by independent testing and our products are BBA approved.

Finally, water-based products are better for the environment and from a safety point of view. They emit lower VOCs, which contribute to the formation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. VOCs can also cause a range of reactions, including eye, nose and throat irritation, risks that are significantly reduced if you use water-based products.
