From the earliest times, man has used wood as a building material. From houses to furniture, from doors and windows to decorative items, wood is integral to our lives. Wood is versatile and strong, and it looks so good if well finished.
Who we are
The House of Woodoc is the market leader in their field and the only manufacturer and marketer concentrating solely in transparent wood protection and maintenance products.
The head office is situated in Fort Beaufort, Eastern Cape, and is staffed by a dedicated team headed by Frikkie Greeff, Managing Director.
All Woodoc Sealers are formulated to protect and nourish wood besides forming a tough decorative finish.
The deep penetrate the surface and bind with the wood, "living" with it and giving the longest possible life and surface protection.
Indoor Woodoc Sealers form a long-lasting beautiful finish that protects wood against heat, alcohol and water staining whilst resisting bumps and scratches.
Few features in a home rival the warmth and glow of a well-treated wooden floor. Woodoc Floor Sealers deep penetrate to nourish and enhance the grain of the wood, while providing a tough, flexible surface that can withstand everyday use.
Exterior Woodoc Sealers are designed to resist the elements and are UV- and moisture resistant. At the end of their life cycles, they biodegrade and only need cleaning down with Woodoc and SteelWool and mineral turpentine before resealing with Woodoc again. No special scraping or sandpapering is required.
As Woodoc recognizes that dense (hard) woods and Porous (soft) woods require different treatments to suit the nature of their composition, Woodoc Deck Products have been specially formulated for use on these dense (hard) woods and porous (soft) woods respectively.
Woodoc Stain & Colours System includes 8 natural wood colors, as well as 20 translucent fashion Colours, specifically formulated for use with clear Woodoc Sealers. NEW from Woodoc is Woodoc Gel Stain, for direct application to wood - hardwood, as well as softwood. Woodoc Maintenance Waxes are suitable for either Indoor or Exterior applications, feeding the wood as they clean and refurbish the surface coating.
Other Woodoc Products available are Woodoc and SteelWool, Woodoc Wood Reviver and Woodoc Transit Stabilizer.
Why Wood Needs Protection
But wood is a living material. To preserve its natural beauty, it needs to protect from the elements and the effects of time. The wood in living trees is protected by bark and nourished by natural sap. If these are taken away, the wood left to the elements will dry out and rot away. When trees are felled and turned into timber, the bark needs replacing to protect the wood and so does the natural sap that nourished it.
Paint is one way to protect the wood but at the price of hiding its natural beauty.
To showcase the natural beauty of wood, transparent wood finishes are needed - wood finishes that last, protect the wood and enhance the luster and grain by nourishing it.
This Is What Woodoc Products Are About
The original Woodoc Sealers were formulated by a craftsman to protect and beautify his fine furniture. He designed it to do two things:
- to deeply penetrate and nourish the wood, thus enhancing its texture and beauty
- to protect it - outdoors, against the damaging effects of rain and the sun's UV-rays, and indoors, against water and alcohol staining, heat and cold marking, and daily wear and tear.
No fancy formulas or miracles of technology - just a tried and tested recipe that works. A recipe for a range of wood care products that is timeless.

The Woodoc surface allows the wood to breathe naturally. It works in harmony with the wood, much like bark does, to help combat aging and deterioration.
