Really pleased with this product. The package I received said “teak sealer”, not “teak oil sealer.”
-Amount: I treated a new dining table table and an older bench with two coats, and used 1/3 can.
-Color: it’s a warm teak color. Some reviewers think it’s a little orange. To me it’s a great teak tone.
-Sealer vs oil: did a lot of research about this, as my experience with oil is not great. Used it on the bench, and it just lacks the staying power. Research says use a Sealer rather than oil, and this brand ranks high.
-Prep: the prep for the new table was super easy. It sat outside four weeks (recommended in one article) before sealing. I simply wiped it down and allowed it to dry before applying. The prep for the older bench was a pain. It really did look bad in spite of having been oiled and partially protected by a screen porch all of its life. I scrubbed it with a combo of water, dish detergent, and bleach using a Dobie. And at times a plastic brush. A lot of gunk came off. After drying, sanded with medium grain paper, which removed most but not all the oil residue. Then wiped it with a wet rag several times. I did not use the multiple prep products that Starbrite sells.
-Application – this is the easy part. This product goes on super easy. It is not as drippy as oil. You need to apply it outside to have the UV rays. Lay a tarp below to protect your deck or patio, have a clean rag handy and apply with a sponge brush. Dip brush just 1/4 inch or so. Apply with even strokes, stopping at seams. Go back after several minutes wiping/buffing with your rag – very important. Beautiful!
-Duration: time will tell whether this will be more lasting and durable than oil. Research says it will. Fingers crossed!

I bought 32 oz in May of 2017. I used it a month later. I cured them in the hot PA sun of the summer. They looked great for a few weeks and nneded a recoat after 8 weeks. the finish just washed away after a few rain storms. It didn’t last longer than oil and was more trouble to strip and refinish than oil is (w/ Oil, just recoat it before it turns grey and you’re fine). I called star brite and they said I had had an unusal experience and sent me 16 oz for free. I used it on the same pieces in 2018, same process, curing in the sun and had the same results. I keep my teak furniture in a shed for winter and for 2019 I will strip this stuff off with the “cleaner” and start over with another brand. IDK where all the good reviews are coming from, but, most of them say “Time will tell”, so I have chimed in to say “time has spoken: this stuff fails after a few rain storms in the summer months”. STAR BRITE: you need to use a more durable epoxy resin!
Customer Questions & Answers
What is the approximate square foot coverage area of 1 gallon of this sealer?
Answer: The guideline is 100 square feet for every quart. (32 oz. / 1 Liter), so 400 square feet for 1 gallon. However, this estimate is variable depending on the type of wood and the surface condition. Smooth teak in good condition will take less than rough, porous pine for example.
I have a new set of teak patio set that i would like to maintain its color. which color should i use? should i use the clear color?
The clear will keep the original color. Natural Light and Classic have pigment and will change the color. Take care to not treat the pigmented versions like a paint. Apply a thin layer with a foam brush and wipe the excess with a clean cloth. You should be able to see the grain through the sealer for a more natural tea??
Can you apply teak sealer over trak oil?
Answer: For best results use either teak oil or teak sealer, but not both. We do not recognize the term “Trak Oil.”
Teak oil or teak sealer are only to be applied to wood surfaces.
Can/should you apply polyurethane after applying the teak sealer to a teak bench?
Answer: Star brite does not suggest or recommend using any type of varnish or polyurethane over Teak Sealer
I am currently stripping the varnish of my teak furniture because it is peeling. Will this sealer start to peel after a while or just fade?
Answer: It will wear away and eventually fade over time. It will not peel like a paint or varnish.
