Dalys Ship and Shore for IPE and Exotic Wood

August 29, 2012


Daly’s Ship‘n Shore Sealer
Daly’s Ship’n Shore Sealer is a versatile wood sealer that can be used for a variety of interior and exterior situations.

Ship’n Shore’s very low build-up of surface film makes it a great preservative for wood structures where you want a natural look without a lot of sheen:
• Interior wood beams and ceilings
• Exterior decks, railings, fences and siding

Additionally, Ship’n Shore Sealer is Daly’s preferred treatment for decks made from exotic hardwoods, like Ipe. Because Ipe is such a dense wood, normal deck treatments do not penetrate and tend to puddle on the surface of the wood leaving it looking blotchy and uneven. Ipe has such natural beauty and Ship’n Shore adds depth and luster to the wood while protecting it from the elements.

What is IPE Wood

Because Ship’n Shore has no surface film, it simply wears off over time. It won’t flake or crack as it weathers which means future maintenance is simplified.

One of the features of Daly’s Ship’n Shore is that it is deeply penetrating and hardens wood by 15-20%, providing sealing protection from moisture while preserving the natural look of the wood. Many contractors use Ship’n Shore as a base coat for before applying Marine Spar Varnish, because it creates a well-sealed surface for the varnish to be applied evenly.
