Sikkens Cetol WB Review

The 14 month weathering test results were fairly good however, of note, was some darkening of the stain as well as a significant amount of splitting in the wood.  Some of the splitting could simply be that the board used was less than perfect but it appears as though the product did a less than acceptable job of protecting the substrate against water penetration.
