About Woodoc

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.

Why Wood Needs Protection

But wood is a living material. To preserve its natural beauty, it needs to protection 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 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 lustre 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 deep penetrate and nourish the wood, thus enhancing its texture and beauty
  • to protect it - outdoors, against the damaging effects of rain and the sun'd 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.

Why Woodoc Works

Deep penetration into the wood
Woodoc penetrates deep into the wood and bonds with it, giving it a flexible yet tough and resistant surface finish.

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

Stays in harmony with the wood
This flexible Woodoc coating doesn't become brittle with age but stays in harmony with the wood.


The House of Woodoc has dedicated distributors in all major centres of South Africa and in some other countries. They distribute Woodoc products to all leading hardware/chain stores and provide a full Sales and After Sales Service.

The House of Woodoc

Who we are

The House of Woodoc are the market leaders 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.

Woodoc Products

All Woodoc Sealers are formulated to protect and nourish wood besides forming a tough decorative finish.

They deep penetrate the surface and bond 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 sand papering is required.

As Woodoc recognises 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 colours, 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 - hard wood, as well as soft wood.

Woodoc Maintenance Waxes are suitable for either Indoor or Exterior application, 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.

The Owl Project

Owlproject.org is an NPC (2015/22111/080) that runs educational environment programmes within impoverished areas across Gauteng. Our passion for educating school children coupled with a vision to create owl friendly children within owl friendly environments has been the driving force behind our 12-year legacy.

To date, 88 118 school children in communities such as Alexandra, Brakpan, Katlehong, Tembisa, Thokoza, Sebokeng and Soweto have participated in the Project. In the past 7 years Woodoc has been a much needed and valued partner of this Project.

Below is a short summary to highlight the positive impact that Woodoc’s donations have had on the success of this Project.

As a conservation NPC, it is very important to us that we maintain an environmentally friendly and responsible project commitment and the wood varnish that Woodoc generously donates to owlproject.org helps us to achieve that. None of the Woodoc products we use contain Creosote. Creosote is a problem for breeding owls and causes eggs to fail.

“All embryos adhering directly to creosote-treated wood and 40–50% of embryos not adhering to the creosote-treated wood failed to develop beyond the first few days of incubation.” - (C. Vines. T. Robbins. F. Griffin. G. Cherr. 2000).

Your contribution of environmentally friendly wood paint is used to treat owl boxes, release boxes, release pens and bat boxes which are donated to underprivileged schools, colleges, parks and food gardens within townships and informal settlements throughout South Africa.

owlproject.org is a programme that covers all areas of sustainability. It is primarily educational but it contributes greatly to both the social and environmental components of sustainable development. The aim of the project is to educate both adults and children within townships to the value of natural predators in their continuous struggle against both rodents and insectivorous pests. At the foundation of this educational drive is the roughly 150 young owls which find their way to the owlproject.org every year.

These owls are rescued owls that have been handed into zoos, rehabilitation centres and SPCA’s nationally.

These owlets are then released through this programme at schools, education centres and food gardens throughout the country. The involvement of teachers, parents and learners in the actual hands-on feeding and releasing of these owls into their environment creates a unique awareness and sense of responsibility amongst participants.

Through community education days and drives, thousands of residents have been exposed to the project. Teachers and parents have also been a vital component in the implementation of a project of this nature.

owlproject.org has attracted both national and international recognition. It has recently been featured as a front page article in the LA Times in the USA, as well as enjoyed coverage on CNN, BBC, SABC, e-TV, ANN7 and has been covered twice on the local wildlife and conservation program 50/50. There have also been a number of radio interviews and newspaper articles covering this project. Please view the following video which was broadcasted recently on e-TV’s Kaelo Stories of Hope: Owl Project video.

This Project makes a valuable contribution to uplifting environmental conditions within impoverished communities throughout South Africa

This Project is supported by Gauteng Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, SPCA, Wasteman Holdings (Pty) Ltd, Nissan South Africa, Woodoc, and EcoSolutions (Pty) Ltd.
