An unusual combination of oils, urethanes and waxes, Seal-A-Cell Clear for decades has served craftsman as the best way to get that "natural" look on beautiful woods that aren't to be stained. The oils penetrate deep within the wood to highlight the warm natural look and the urethane ensures a deep hardness, and can be used as a stand alone finish. Optionally you can follow with multiple coats of Arm-R-Seal topcoat. Seal-A-Cell can be wiped on or applied with a foam brush. Diluted, it can be used as a wood conditioner to control penetration of stains, used to dilute other stains and as a base to add universal tints to achieve custom colors.Seal-a-Cell has a very slight ambering quality and is the least ambering of GF's oil based sealers.
