Western Red Cedar Shingles may be left uncoated, and will age naturally on exterior walls or roofs, however they may be coated if the correct product is applied. Rystix Exterior Sealer is the product of choice for this situation.

UV light causes the greatest degree of breakdown in wood coating products and Rystix Timbacare has proven its premium quality characteristics in environments with solar radiation levels up to three times those experienced in the UK. The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research also confirmed that Rystix out-performed its competitors.

Exterior Sealer is available in a range of 5 colours and a clear variant. The product is a tough, grain enhancing, translucent sealer providing years of protection.
