Passion, Innovation & Tradition


The go-to finish for wood enthusiasts since 1910.

Waterlox stains, sealers and finishes are the first choice for many wood floor specialists, restoration experts, craftsmen and artisans because of the distinctive character, protection and ease-of-use they provide. Created from a unique blend of tung oil and resin, our products penetrate deep into wood and seal fibers beneath the surface to lock out water and enhance the natural beauty of the wood.

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. While embracing our history and tradition, our passion is creating innovative products that provide superior results and meet customer demands. Our newest products are eco-friendly, low odor and low VOC and deliver the same outstanding performance and quality we have been known for since 1910.
