Swissvax care products for wooden boats & teak

Wash, clean, care & seal

Wood is the oldest and most natural material in boat building. Unlike GRP boats, wooden boats require more maintenance because wood can absorb or release moisture, causing it to swell or shrink. Because wood works, the paint and wood finish must provide sufficient flexibility to protect the wood from moisture and rot. In boat building, teak has always been a very popular material for decks and for interior and exterior construction. Teak does not rot and is particularly resistant thanks to the silica it also contains.
