Gripseal believes in protecting and nurturing our environment for generations to come and therefore developed wood and masonry sealants that are environmentally friendly, non-toxic and lead-free.
We, at Gripseal, understand that wood is one of nature’s most beautiful and precious natural assets and our coatings have been developed with this in mind.
Our stains/sealants protect and nourish the wood while ensuring that the natural appeal of the wood is accentuated, not lost. Gripseal has a nationwide distribution network and supplies the larger hardware groups as well as the smaller independent retailer.
We believe in efficient delivery, personalised service and place a significant emphasis on training the retailer staff.
Gripseal believes that to succeed you need to do things right the first time, with honesty, integrity, innovation and consideration for the future generations.
Gripseal has been the frontrunner in coating technology and innovation, particularly water-based coatings. We perfected and presented our water-based products to the market in 1984 and since then have been an enormous success. We strive to continue innovating and have just recently launched the first water-based oil in South Africa.
GripSeal believes that building and maintaining strong relationships is the basis of all business.
Therefore a large part of our effort is directed toward developing the right relationships with suppliers, retailers, manufacturers and our customers.
Over the years we have, and will continue to cultivate this, aspect of our organization, and the results speak for themselves.
All substrates and surfaces contain varying amounts of moisture, it is logical to seal with a sealant that has the same basis.
The Gripseal range of unique water-based sealants is based on this concept, and the success of Gripseal is because surfaces are sealed from within and not merely by a surfacing coating.
The more porous the surface, the better GripSeal stains and sealants work as the substrate is more penetrable.
Gripseal Chemicals has made a commitment to provide high performance products that are environmentally friendly and that are following international environmental and VOC legislation.
All our products are water-based and environmentally friendly and to further show our commitment to preserving the environment, we are continually searching to find sustainably harvested ingredients / renewable sources that occur naturally to use in the manufacturing of our products.
As an organisation, we understand that being environmentally conscious is not only about ensuring that our products have a minimal impact on the environment but taking our entire operation into account. From the start of the product lifecycle, being our suppliers, manufacturing processes and logistics all the way to the end of the product lifecycle being how the final packaging is disposed of or recycled. We therefore continuously strive to reach this standard by implementing environmental procedures.
We believe that we all have a responsibility on this earth to ensure that we use our resources provided sustainably so that we don’t get to a place where we will leave our children and grandchildren an irreparably damaged planet.
