Welcome To Protek Wood Stain

It is Protek’s task as manufacturers of quality wood stains, decorative timber coatings and preservatives, to design treatments that are effective and long lasting, while aiming not to harm the user or any flora and fauna that comes into contact with it. Protek Woodcare range is the attractive and effective solution to looking after all types of outdoor timber. Each product is skilfully made to minimise any human health and safety risk and the effect on the environment. Our wood stains can be used on a variety of finished states such as rough sawn or planed surfaces and will leave a natural looking coloured stain high build finish.

The Protek wood stain range originated in the 1980s using only water-based technology for the treatment and preservation of wood. This was a time when most people still used creosote to treat their timber. Our mission at Protek was to change the manufacture of all fencing and shed products to our new water-based stains and treatments. We promoted the use of water-based wood stain formulas containing organic pigments against oil and solvent based high VOC (volatile organic compounds) products as the way forward. They were (and still are) easier and nicer to use and have a far lower environmental impact.
