Fibre Alternatives, manufacturers of hemp based construction materials, is proud to announce the market release of Hemp Shield Wood Finish and Deck Sealer™ — The first and only penetrating wood finish containing 100% hemp oil that is produced in the United States. Hemp Shield™ is suitable for wooden decks, fences, stairs, siding, shutters, furniture — anything wooden that is exposed to the weather. In extensive tests, Hemp Shield™ outlasted all comers, including the highest priced deck finish on the national market. Hemp Shield's finish is extremely UV resistant, and the trans-oxide pigments used in shaded varieties of Hemp Shield™ provide long lasting color to your outdoor wood that does not hide the grain. Hemp Shield's unique hemp oil formulation represents a major advance in preservation of outdoor wood — a back-to-the-future choice that, by reviving use of an agriculture based oil feed stock, has created a sustainable, environmentally friendly finish that outlasts the most expensive petroleum based finishes. Hemp Shield™ also resists environmental attacks from mildew, algae, and fungus, but in "Clear" formula, contains only 9g/l volatile organic compounds (VOC's), almost 60 times less than other products labeled "Low VOC". Hemp Shield products contain none of the 289 hazardous air pollutants (HAP's) listed by the EPA. Non-toxic, environmentally friendly Hemp Shield Wood Finish and Deck Sealer™ offers superior performance in a sustainable, truly "green" waterproofer and protectant for outdoor wood.
Hemp Shield Wood Finish and Deck Sealer™ was designed to provide excellent durability under field conditions, and to meet or exceed the requirements of the following American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards.
1) ASTM D 1006 — Exterior Exposure Tests of Paint and Wood
2) ASTM D 3456 — Exterior Exposure Tests for Susceptibility of Paint Film to Microbiological Attack
3) ASTM D 3719 — Quantifying Dirt Collection on Exterior Panels
Hemp Shield Wood Finish and Deck Sealer™ was tested in an Accelerated Weathering Chamber (ASTM D 4587), where it out-lasted all competitors, including Thompsons Water Seal™ and Cabot’s Deck Stain™. Hemp Shield Wood Finish and Deck Sealer™ will keep your outdoor wood looking new and natural as long as possible.
