Prolong the integrity of new exterior wood with Rust-Oleum® WOODLIFE® Classic. This 100% clear formula repels water and contains nearly double the fungicide of standard sealers or stains. Use it as a final finish or primer.

  • EPA-registered, fungicidal preservative protects against surface mold, mildew, rot and decay.
  • Resists water damage including swelling, warping and end checking.
  • 100% clear - reveals natural wood color and allows it to gray naturally.
  • For use on all species of untreated or pressure-treated lumber including plywood or engineered wood items.
  • Suitable for decks, porches, fencing, siding, outdoor furniture, gazebos, arbors, storage sheds, play equipment and other engineered wood items exposed to weather and rain.


Pre-treatment by dip method before installation is recommended. Also designed for protection of deck or porch floor end cuts.

If wood is brand new and intended for outdoor installation and exposed to weather conditions for 30 days or less, a “splash test” should be performed to determine if there is any surface barrier present which would repel a new coating. Sprinkle a few drops of water on several areas of the surface to be coated. If the water is absorbed rapidly, the surface is ready to be finished with WOODLIFE® Classic. If the water beads are not absorbed into the wood, a surface barrier exists and must be removed. Apply or Wolman® Deck & Fence Brightener and then test again. Regardless of the surface’s age or condition, failure to follow proper preparation methods will result in poor adhesion and/or possible coating failure.
