Cetol® Maintenance

Please see below for state restrictions

Sikkens Cetol Maintenance is a premium clear exterior finish to be used over existing Sikkens Cetol 23 Plus or Sikkens Cetol Log & Siding as a maintenance coat. Typically, with maintenance coats, pigmented products will further darken the wood. With a one coat application of Sikkens Cetol Maintenance, the wood will retain the same look and color.

Usage Siding, Logs, Trim, Garage Doors
  • Non-Pigmented Maintenance Coating – Developed to provide a non-darkening maintenance coat for vertical surfaces (siding, logs & trim).
  • High Solids Alkyd – Provides maintenance protection in one coat.
  • UV Absorbers – High performance UV protection, preventing graying and deterioration of the wood surface.
  • Excellent Microporosity and Flexibility – Minimizes blistering and cracking due to expansion and contraction or moisture build up.

Sikkens Cetol Maintenance covers 300-400 sq. ft./gallon on smooth wood and 150–225 sq. ft./gallon on rough wood.


Sikkens Cetol Maintenance may not be shipped via air transit due to D.O.T. restrictions.
