NatureShield is a new line of environmentally friendly, water-repellent additives for interior and exterior wood, stone, and concrete coatings. All are emulsions of natural oils and waxes that provide excellent water resistance and water beading when used in coatings, stains, and sealants.

NatureShield 30 is an emulsion of tung oil that reportedly provides a tough, highly water-resistant finish that does not darken noticeably. It produces water beading and holdout in exterior wood stains and sealants, and is also used because of its light golden tint.

NatureShield 31 is an anionic emulsion of natural oils and waxes that can provide water resistance and water beading in topical wood coatings. NatureShield 40 is a film-forming natural oil emulsion used to provide water resistance and moderate scratch and mar resistance in both wood and concrete coatings.
