Protect your investment. Ipe Seal forms a bond that stretches the lifetime of wood. Ipe Seal is paraffin based solution that is milky-white in appearance, dries clear and forms a flexible and vapor permeable membrane layer between wood end grain and the surrounding environment. The sooner our sealant is applied, the more successful the application will be. Use is suggested within 24-hours of cutting.
