Lifetime Wood Treatment Complaint - Floating Particles in Solution

Review by carolina11 on 2011-03-26
NEW DENVER BRITISH COLUMBIA -- Why does this wood treatment have floating particles in it that don't dissolve in water. If they don't dissolve, then why are they there? Sounds a little phoney to me.

The "Lifetime Wood Treatment" company that I was able to find says that they have been making products used in marinas and on decks for many years, plus they make a water-based product - very friendly these days.

I see that you or the company is located in Canada. I use a semi-transparent stain (with particles suspended) called Sikkens on my cedar siding and decks, which I believe started in Canada. It is an amazing product, and I have used it since 1995.

I hope you can find an answer to the question, but I wouldn't avoid them solely on this fact - it may be an intentional part of the formulation.

Most likely its a water soluble component within the non soluble "flake".

When spraying we mix and let seep before filtering out the in soluble's to avoid plugging the spray tips
