Ipe Oil & Ipe Seal
Protect Your Deck with Hardwood Finish
& End-Grain Sealer
Deckwise has created 3 products to help waterproof and seal your hardwood Ipe decking.
- Ipe Oil is used on exotic hardwoods, and provides protection from water, mold, mildew, and damaging UV rays. It boasts exceptional penetration on even the densest of hardwoods like Ipe.
- Ipe Seal is an end grain sealer that prevents end checking and splitting to increase the lifespan of your wood. We recommend applying Ipe Seal within 24 hours of cutting the wood.
- DeckWise® recently released WiseCoat, a water-based deck, siding, and fence sealer. Use this to waterproof and seal both light and dark exotic hardwoods. It waterproofs your hardwood for up to six years and is non-toxic.

DeckWise Deck CleanerWe recommend performing annual deck maintenance to maintain the natural color of your hardwood deck. Before staining or oiling the surface be sure to clean it thoroughly.
Cleaner Part 1: Removes dirt & natural graying from wood. The cleaner contains Sodium Percarbonate to break down mold and mildew. Part one restores your hardwood's color and grain pattern. Coverage is 500 sq ft.
Brightener Part 2: Helps neutralize the wood after cleaning by increasing the pH balance. This helps the wood absorb deck finish or stain more evenly and even extends its lifetime! Brightener also removes tannin stains from cedar & redwood and takes out rust, fungi and any leftover dirt remnants. Covers 500 sq ft.
Once the cleaning and brightening process has been completed, finish the project with Ipe Oil
