teak decks is considered by many as a job for for the
lowliest crew member. This has resulted in the creation of
numerous potions that promise to restore the appearance of
teak to new with minimal effort, or to preserve the golden
colour over a long period of time without the need for
continuous cleaning and maintenance. These products
usually result in huge dissapointment, either because the
product didn't perform as promised or because the products
used have damaged the teak.
There are many extremely aggressive preparations damaging teak and the stainless and anodised aluminium fittings on deck. Seam sealers and even the gel-coat can be affected. Certain protective treatments remain sticky for a long time which results in dust and dirt sticky to the newy cleaned surface making for a very dark teak that looks dirty.
Teak Wonder has been around since 1973. It is tried and tested and trusted.
Here is an extract:
"All of the oils (not Teak Wonder) tested survived a month ... What is more half of them started to show signs of decay ... this was more evident for dressing that produced a darker colour ...
T-Jett silicon based Teak Wonder was clearly chosen as the best"
American Sailor/PBO/Sailing Today
Teak Wonder is not an oil; that is, it does not contain oil. It is a diluted silicon and pigment based sealer. Once the thinner has evaporated, the silicon keeps the wood sealed against water and a variety of other solvents including diesel. The silicon also delays oxidation.
Teak Wonder is the clearest of treatments during application and becomes practically invisible once it has dried. The wood, once treated with Teak Wonder is slightly lighter than that just sanded. One month after application there is still no sign of the product, in fact the wood remains clear, clean, and free from dust or residues. We recommend that two coats be applied with sponge or bristle to obtain saturation.
Teak Wonder is the treatment tested by Practical Sailor that "struck us most and we highly recommend it to those that want a longer natural look…."
