Protek Decking Stain Guidelines
Many years of research have gone into producing Protek’s range of water based
products to where the company is now acknowledged to be the market leader
amongst sawmills, fence panel and shed manufacturers.
While their competitors have sought the perfect timber treatment amongst the
vast range of chemicals available, Protek has been dedicated to a water based
solution. The biocide is unique to them. Only top quality ingredients are used.
When comparing prices with other timber treatments please remember to take into
account performance and specification. It would be tempting and easy to leave
out some ingredients to achieve a cheaper product but that is not Protek’s way.
