Waterlox Coatings Corporation

Waterlox is the nation’s leading provider of premium wood stains, sealers and finishes handmade from natural tung oil. Made in the USA since 1910 by a fourth-generation family-owned company.

About Waterlox

Waterlox wood stains, sealers and finishes are the first choice for many restoration experts, wood floor specialists, craftsmen and artisans because of the distinctive character, protection and ease-of-use they provide. Our unique formula is a blend of tung oil and resin that gives you the best of both worlds – beauty and durability. The tung oil base enhances the natural beauty and character of wood, while the resin penetrates and seals fibers beneath the surface to lock out water. As a family-owned company for over 110 years, Waterlox continues to create premium products that are handmade by our expert staff in Cleveland, Ohio, using the best ingredients and our original family formulas.
