Sikkens – The art of colouring and protecting wood


Making exterior wood look good whilst protecting it from weathering can be a tricky business. But with specialist products that have been developed through extensive research and development, long term exterior wood care that lasts year after year is a reality.

Sikkens is arguably one of the market leaders when it comes to exterior wood stain and coating systems. With a focus on retaining the wood grain clarity, whilst protecting it against the elements, their tried and tested wood stains such as Sikkens Cetol Filter 7 Plus and Sikkens Cetol Novatop have become world renowned.

Wood Finishes Direct have been selling the standard Cetol range of wood stain colours for several years, but we’re proud to announce some exciting news! We’re now able to mix and make even more colours for the Sikkens range of products.

With the installation of our own Sikkens mixing machine, we’re now able to produce over 80 new colours from the Sikkens ‘Classic’ and ‘Style’ ranges. This means that it’s never been easier to get the perfect colour for any project mixed and sent direct from us. And with next day delivery available, there’s no hanging around for your products to arrive.
