Swissvax Care Products for Wood Boats & Teak

For maintaining teak wood with teak oil and teak cleaner of Swissvax quality

Wood is the oldest and most natural material in boat construction. Unlike GRP boats, wood and teak boats demand more maintenance because wood can absorb or release moisture, causing it to swell or shrink. Since wood expands and contracts, paint and wood coatings need to offer sufficient flexibility to protect the wood effectively against moisture and decay over the long term.

Teak wood has always been a favored material in boat construction, used for decking as well as interior and exterior finishes. Naturally rich in oils, teak wood does not rot and is exceptionally durable, thanks in part to the silica it contains. With Swissvax's teak products, cleaning and resealing teak with teak oil is straightforward.
