THE SECRET TO BEAUTIFUL COLOR
Highlight the natural beauty and personality of wood.
Why build with wood in the first place? The answer is simple: beauty. In fact, at Sansin we feel no other building material even comes close to the natural warmth, character and versatility of wood.
Whether you choose from our family of penetrating transparent finishes or from our collection of solid hide colors, Sansin Enviro Stains deliver exceptional beauty that lasts. Our transparent finishes – available in a range of tones from Naturals all the way to our powerful Ultra-Saturated line – are renowned for their ability to enhance the character of wood with remarkable clarity, depth and crisp, clean color. And our solid hide colors are equally renowned for their purity of color and their exceptional UV and fade-resistant qualities.
We’ve harnessed the power of nano technology to create color like you’ve never seen before. An innovative process atomizes the highest quality pigments into tiny particles so incredibly fine – less than a billionth of a meter – that they combine with the protective oils and resins in Sansin Enviro Stains on a molecular level. Once applied to your home or deck, Sansin’s penetrating stains carry the pigmentation down into the wood for uniform color that is so vibrant and long-lasting it has to be seen to be truly appreciated.
With so many colors and stains to choose from, there is a perfect shade for every project!
Penetrating one-coat finish for wood siding.
Sansin SDF provides tough, effective protection for wood siding. SDF’s specially formulated oils and resins penetrate into the wood, providing outstanding weather and UV protection in a wide range of natural, semi-transparent and even solid colors. Thanks to SDF’s unique water-borne technology, it can provide complete protection in just one coat – although a second coat will provide an even more beautiful and richer finish.
And because SDF is designed to be highly water-repellent, it’s a natural choice for homes and structures in moisture-rich environments. Not only does SDF protect the outside of your wood, it also protects the inside by allowing the wood to “breathe” which helps prevent moisture from getting trapped in the wood and causing rot.
SDF is rated by siding manufacturers as one of the best Naturals finishes available.

Classic Log Home Finishing System - S
pecially engineered for log and timber-frame structures.
Classic is the ultimate finish for logs and big timbers – easily maintained, it can keep wood beautiful literally for decades. This low-lustre three-coat penetrating formula not only enhances the natural beauty of wood, it also allows it to breathe. A log home requires more than protection from sun and rain – the sheer size of the wood demands a coating that “breathes” freely to prevent moisture from getting trapped and rotting the log from within.
Not surprisingly, Classic works just as well on other exterior vertical surfaces, like shakes, shingles, siding and fences. Whatever the application, your wood will be protected with an ultra-violet (UV) and water-repellent shield of lasting and remarkable beauty. Classic is easy to apply – with simple soap and water clean-up – and easy to maintain. Simply apply a maintenance coat of Classic 3 to protect and maintain a perfect finish. Because it uses water to carry modified natural oils deep into the logs, Sansin Classic can be applied even to wood with a high moisture content – particularly useful for log homes where moisture levels of up to 25% are common. By comparison, most water- and solvent-based coatings can only be applied to surfaces with moisture content conditions of 18% or less and once applied, are more likely to trap moisture deep within the logs.
If you’re looking for the absolute best in log home and big timber coatings, the Sansin Classic system provides exceptional exterior wood protection anywhere beautiful color, low maintenance and a natural, low-lustre breathable finish is desired.
CLASSIC 1: Sansin Classic 1 is the first coat in the Sansin Classic system when natural wood tones or translucent colors are desired.
CLASSIC 2: Sansin Classic 2 is the intermediate coat in the Classic system for naturals wood tones and translucent colors, or the first coat for Saturated or Ultra-Saturated colors.
CLASSIC 3: Sansin Classic 3 is a tintable, final coat in the Sansin Classic system – can be used as the maintenance coat.
CLASSIC NATURALS TOP COAT: Low lustre, universal coat for Naturals Wood Tones.
